"Buying a classic car is a very special experience for the enthusiast like myself. It often involves a long period of searching for just the right car culminating in some nervousness once the deal is done that it will live up to one’s expectations. Those of us with a long history of owning classics will have probably bought at least one lemon – mine was a Lotus Europa! Hence why the pleasure of dealing with Waimak Classic Cars, Jesmond and Gloria was so refreshing. True enthusiasts with integrity, knowledge and patience. My Jaguar XK8 was part of an extensive collection of high quality classics which were a joy to behold. Thanks for all your help, it was the best experience of buying a classic in over 50 years of my involvement."Gordon Hosking, Mangawhai Northland, New Zealand
When the Porsche 944 was released, it was praised by all of the automotive magazines. In some countries, it was even referred to as the best of the best and in the US, it was thought that it would change Porsche enthusiasts attitudes toward the front - engined sports cars.
While that last part never fully happened, it was a very good car in its own right. The earliest cars only offered 143 horsepower, but managed to go from 0 to 50 mph (remember this was the early '80s) in 5.9 seconds versus 5.8 seconds for the 911SC of the time. In 1986 the 944's performance took a real leap with the Turbo model and in 1988 the S2 model was released. This was powered by a 3.0 liter engine that provided nearly the same performance as the early turbocharged models, but without the turbo lag.

At Waimak Classic Cars, our principal interest is to ensure the preservation of classic and vintage vehicles. Please remember that our vehicles are many years old, often with further previous owners. Many have been bought by us recently. We cannot know exactly what repairs or maintenance has been done although we do our best to obtain log books and copies of invoices of work done, when, and by whom.
Our descriptions are based on our own observations and knowledge and we look for the best examples we can find. Indicated mileages are based on the records showing with NZTA and / or the vehicle’s odometer reading. Because of the age of the vehicle, this can never be guaranteed. Our inspections are generally non-invasive. Our description is based on a visual inspection and on information supplied to us by third parties.
Any sale is on the condition that the purchaser relies on his/her own judgment and does not rely on our skill or judgment or on any representation made by us. This applies even if the Buyer has not inspected the vehicle before purchase. We strongly recommend that you have the vehicle inspected by an independent assessor qualified to comment on the particular vehicle’s condition. If you are unable to organise this, then this can be organised on your behalf, at your cost.
We are proud of our reputation. However, no older vehicle can be expected to be as reliable as a new one and so all our vehicles are sold on an as is where is basis. Mechanical breakdowns, electronic failures at inconvenient times and maintenance costs are part and parcel of the ownership of classic and vintage vehicles. Reliability is a combination of the particular vehicle, how it has been driven and maintained, and luck.
For more information about this vehicle, please contact us Monday to Friday between 9:00am and 6:00pm (New Zealand Standard Time) on +64 (0) 3 310-6485 / +64 (0) 274 990-020. Alternatively, you may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
PLEASE NOTE: As Waimak Classic Cars is NOT a car yard dealer type of operation, we do not operate through fixed opening hours. Viewing is therefore STRICTLY BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and A FEW DAYS NOTICE is always appreciated, as it is seldom possible for us to accommodate viewing on the same day of inquiry
