The Porsche 944 Turbo is looking better than ever to Porsche aficionados because it outhandles classic 911s and nearly matches their acceleration — at a mere fraction of their current prices.
Widely regarded as the best handling supercar of the 1980s, the Porsche 944 is exhilarating to drive on racetracks and mountain switchbacks. But it is also quite practical for everyday use thanks to ample interior space and handling ease. This unrivaled combination of supercar performance and everyday practicality makes it one of the best selling Porsches ever.
The 944 handles aggressive moves much better than the 924 and offers more civilized cornering than the rear-heavy 911 thanks in part to a nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Steering is light and accurate, and braking is highly controlled courtesy of 12-inch ventilated discs, 4-piston Brembo calipers and ABS.
Porsche’s powerful 2.5-liter inline-four SOHC engine is basically the right-hand cylinder bank of a V8 5-liter engine from the Porsche 928. Mounted in front, it features water cooling, an aluminum block and head, and two counter-rotating balance shafts that help deliver performance as smooth as a six-cylinder engine.
In the 1988 944 Turbo, the engine generates 220 horsepower and 243 ft-lb of torque for a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 157 mph. It also provides instant acceleration for passing when traveling at high speeds.
This beautiful black 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo has been lovingly cared for from smoothly integrated bumper and retractable headlights to curvy glass hatch and molded rubber spoiler. Its galvanized body panels are in great condition and the handsome burgundy interior has minimal wear.

After ordering my minivan from Mathew and the folks at JCD, I will definetely use them again. Took three months to get the van but I am on the other side of the world. Van arrived in better condition than I expected although battery was dead and gas was extremely low. Other than that, the documents were sent to me promptly and the process of registering was seamless with the supplied documents. Thank you Matt and team and I look forward to working with you in the future!
When starting my path of importing a JDM classic Land Cruiser, I spent weeks doing research before actually committing because I’d never imported anything before. I was fortunate to come across Japan Car Direct, and that’s where I met Mathew. Wow, where do I start with Mathew..... (Just kidding Chicago!) Mathew was fantastic, from spending time on Skype answering all my questions to teaching me everything I needed to know to successfully find the truck of my dreams. Well today in fact I picked up my truck at the port, and it was in even better condition than I could have seen in the pictures and from the reports provided. Guess what, just ordered another one! You are the Master Mathew. Go Hawks!
A few months ago I set out on my goal of importing a vehicle from Japan through an auction. After tons and TONs of research and countless emails, I decided to use Japan Car Direct as my exporter in Japan. From the beginning of my interactions with JCD, I was thoroughly impressed. My contact, Yoshi, was amazing...definitely a huge asset to the JCD team. He answered all of my questions promptly, translated dozens of auction sheets for me, and advised me of what to watch out for when looking for a vehicle. He was beyond helpful! I picked up my Kei truck at the port in Newport News a few weeks ago and couldn't be more pleased. Since then, the truck has made it to its final home in Charlottesville, VA on my farm. Yoshi and the other guys at JCD are now my go to team for more of these soon. Thanks again JCD and keep doing what you guys do! You all are the real deal.
Since a kid the FD RX7 has always been a dream car but i didn't pursue it till i graduated high school but the prices just for the shell over here in california was over 15k!! I kept looking around until I decided i would just import one. I found JCD while looking for the top 5 importers you could trust and they stood out more than all the other ones, and for a couple months of more research on their page until I ultimately decided I would go through them. Although this was my first time getting a car from Japan and having an endless amount questions spanning a couple hundred emails until it would freeze up and i had to make a new email thread .. Mathew always answered every question and helped me though every step. I didn't have all the funds in the beginning but they were very patient with it until i was fully ready, then after a month of having Matt give his thought on some of the FDs i was looking at we finally won the auction for a 94 Efini type R Fd3s. As we picked it up from Long Beach till the drive home I couldn't believe that it was here and soo much better just looking at the picture but i defiantly would recommend JCD to anyone looking to import their dream car too and and want to thank matt and the whole team with getting me my RX7.
I'd been looking to buy an RF series Honda Stepwagon to convert into a mini camper for a while but the UK prices always seemed too high. I had joined a few JDM import sites to get an idea of auction prices and costs (including Japan Car Direct) but just couldn't bring myself to take the next step, it seemed such a risk ! Finally after reading so many good reviews for JCD (and Mathew in particular) I took the plunge and contacted Mathew. After he answered my many questions regarding costs, fees etc I felt confident enough to pay the deposit and start hunting the Japanese auctions for my Steppy. My budget for the Steppy was pretty low (pathetic even !) but I felt Mat still put the same effort into replying to my questions and queries as he would have done if my budget had been into the tens of thousands. The result was I now have a very tidy Stepwagon with lower mileage than any vehicle I've ever owned, I've paid far less for it then I would have done buying in the UK and I've got a bigger budget now for the camper conversion. I wouldn't hesitate to buy through them again, and hope to do so soon.
