Title: Callaway 944
Post by Als_Callaway_944 on Jul 20th, 2010 at 8:19pm
Hi every one!
New to this forum and looking for help on steering me in the right direction on how to find out what my car is worth! I am the original owner of this factory orderd 1983 944 with all of the options possible. I drove to Old Lime Conn. after the break in period to have the turbo installed (best thing I ever did as far as a car improvement goes). So here are the specs: 31,300 original miles {mostly highway}, Black with brown/tan interior, polished three piece Epsilon racing wheels with gold honycomb centers and 205/55ZR16 front 245/45ZR16 Michlin Pilot Sport tires (less than 1000 mi on them). Still have the original optional stock rims with Dunlop tires that only have 50 mi on them stored in basement. $3,000 invested in Sony head unit / 10 disc changert ADS seperates with custom sub and plenty of wattage {sound system sounds great even at 100mph with the windows down} is that legal. FYI 165mph is the top speed. Have other stuff that would go with it. I am just researching at this point, been on the iternet all day and found out a lot of useful info so far. I have seen one that sold for 45k and one for 80k, their were only 20 made with one in a museum in Germany, would love to know how many are still out their running.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!  ;D
Thanks for L ;D ;Dking

Do you have a pic of the passenger side of the engine, I'd like to see the exhaust/wastegate/turbo setup.

Thanks and good luck with your sale.

I had to sadly work that Saturday as per a last minute request.  

I'll have some more photos up of my car.  

I have a suggestion, that maybe we have a 924, 944, 928, 968 meet at Bauer Porsche, Oakland  on one of the upcoming Saturdays?   Of course we will welcome any other Porsche (356, 912, 911, 993, 997, Caymen, Boxster)  that shows!   If we get enough people, we can even set up a drive/lunch.

The Callaway 944 is one very rare car.  Of less than 20 originally tuned worldwide, people who own them, including myself know we have something absolutely special.  Any remaining Callaway 944's not destroyed by their owners keeps values going "north" on these super cars.  I have seen pricepoints for these sold at over $60,000 to rare Porsche collectors.  The Callaway its lighter and more powerful then the stock 944 turbo (951) and it sounds amazing with its throaty growl.  
Let me know if you want to make any offers, maybe I can be encouraged to sell.   ::)

- let me know what photos you want to look at.

This pic is of my car infront off the Callaway shop in Corona, California. I went to show my car and met Pete Callaway, Reves Callaway's son who showed me around his shop and even took me on a drive in a 2010 Callaway Camaro.  He also showed me some of Corvette's shop and some really cool guys that worked over there.  The drive was about a 7 hour drive away from my house in Oakland, California.

My Brother Mike owns one of these Callaway 944's.  He has owned it now for about 15 years.  The car is mint!  He bought it with a blown engine and rebuild it.  What a fun car!  He calls it the Vitamin machine!  Nobody knows for sure how much this car is worth I think because not many people know about it.  I keep telling him never to sell it.  I can ask him to post pics of it.  I don't think he knows what build number it is.  I think there were about 30 done by callaway.

I realize this is an old thread, but do any of you Callaway owners still have your cars? Mine is the development prototype Callaway used to prove the concept and create the package he later applied to 37 more cars. The car is one of the first thousand 944s ever built, and the Callaway work was done in May and June of 1982. We've owned the car since October of '83. We're trying to obtain a rational appraisal of the car for insurance purposes. I would appreciate anyone's first-hand knowledge of any sales of these. I'll be happy to add a photo or two if someone can tell me how to do that on this forum.

It is an older thread but maybe someone will chime in and help you out. You car is extremely rare and is beautiful and should be valued at quite a bit!

I've seen them go for as low as $10k to as high as $40k. It will ultimately depend on the condition of the car as well as the documentation. If you have documentation that shows it was a development prototype car that would certainly add to the value. The bigger issue though is convincing the insurance company of the value. Since it was not a factory option they may not agree with the value of the car. See if you can find some old sale posts for them where they were actually sold because that is likely what the insurance company will do.
