As mentioned in a previous posting, 944s in Singapore are incredibly scarce so stumbling upon one even in a scrapyard is nothing something that happens everyday. Which makes seeing these two here rather heartbreaking. Now i’d have to warn you, the following pictures might be disturbing to some readers. Still with me? Here we go…
How did i stumble upon these two broken dreams? Well, it’s not much of a story, i pretty much drive pass these cars whenever i’m on the road home. Situated just off a main highway, i’d steal a glance every time i drive by and had always wanted to just take some time off to have a look. Well, today’s the day. The rain that had been falling on a daily basis stopped and there was still ample sunlight. A quick 5-10 minutes was all i needed.
Both cars looked sad but the one up front was definitely much worse for wear.
The interior was mostly gone and the chassis was exposed to our unforgiving elements.
Yes that’s a lime green smashed up GTR in front.
It also had a strange semi-convereted 968 front end. Perhaps it was someone’s project at a point in time.
Rear hatch was delaminating off. Seems to be a common problem for 944s left out in the open.
The car behind wasn’t fairing too well but looked to be in slightly better shape. No intercooler but the badge out back does say “Turbo S”.
IU unit implies that this was a locally registered car once.
Quite hard to see but the interior seemed to be mostly intact and what looked to be a RS or RUF steering wheel inside.
Some relics in the boot and a spoiler that’s done channeling air, now it just collects rainwater and breed mosquitos.
While the wheels and brakes on both cars look salvageable, there are no leads on who owns these cars, so i guess they will continue to sit there abandoned. The remnants of dreams now forgotten.
