Description

For the 1985 model year, Porsche introduced the 944 Turbo, known internally as the 951. This had a turbocharged and intercooled version of the standard car’s engine that produced 217 bhp at 6000 rpm. The turbo was the first car using a ceramic port liner to retain exhaust gas temperature and new forged pistons, and was also the first vehicle to produce identical power output with or without a catalytic converter. The Turbo also featured several other changes, such as improved aerodynamics, notably an integrated front bumper. This featured a strengthened gearbox with a different final drive ratio, standard external oil coolers for both the engine and transmission, standard 16 inch wheels, and a slightly stiffer suspension to handle the extra weight. The Turbo’s front and rear brakes were borrowed from the Porsche 911, with Brembo 4-piston fixed calipers and 12-inch discs as ABS also came standard

The buyers of the limited edition 944 Turbo S were, understandably, disappointed when Porsche made the 250bhp model the standard 944 Turbo from the start of the 1989 model year!

This excellent 250bhp 944 Turbo, finished the classic 1980s colour combination of Grand Prix white with a black leather interior, is the most powerful 250 bhp model with only 111,000 recorded kilometres from new.

The overall condition shows a very tidy and smart Porsche which has rapidly and quite rightly gained collectors status in recent years. A great example of a fast, usable Porsche with true GT credentials.
