History and evolution of the Porsche 944
The Porsche 944 debuted in 1982, built on the same platform as the Porsche 924. While the Porsche 924 was equipped with an Audi engine, the Porsche 944 comes outfitted with a water-cooled Porsche engine. A turbo version of the Porsche 944 was introduced in 1986, improving the car's power and aerodynamics. In terms of safety, anti-lock brakes and airbags were added in 1987. The first convertible model launched in 1989 as the Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet. Throughout its 10-year production run, the Porsche 944 featured trendy pop-up headlights and a glass fastback design. In 1992, the Porsche 944 was replaced by the Porsche 968.
Porsche 944 power and performance
Known for its excellent handling, the rear-wheel drive Porsche 944 is available with your choice of naturally aspirated or turbocharged engine and either manual or automatic transmission. Early models were equipped with a 150-horsepower four-cylinder engine that offered a top speed of 210 km/hr. From 1986, the Porsche 944 Turbo features a turbocharged and inter-cooled 217-horsepower engine, delivering a top speed of 261 km/hr. As with most cars, the Porsche 944 became more powerful and better-equipped over the course of its production run, with Turbo S models boasting 250-horsepower engines from 1988 to 1991.
