The Greatest 944 Ever Made
When you think of a Porsche Turbo, obviously you think of the great Porsche 911 Turbo. But running a very very close 2nd is the Porsche 944 Turbo S. Now notice the ‘S’ at the end. This was not the standard 944 Turbo which was fast enough, but the 944 Turbo S in 1998 and 1989 was an extra added ‘special’ something Porsche added to the mix.
Start off with some extra hp and torque to the engine, now outputting the 944 turbo S to a whopping 247 hp. 0-60 times now comes down to 5.5 secs – this was in 1989 remember. Bigger brakes, rotors, Limited Slip and bigger sway bars….all make the Porsche 944 Turbo S one bad ass machine to drive and corner with. Even today, this car will compete with many modern sport cars.
Hence why the Porsche 944 Turbo S is slowly becoming a collectible car, with good versions (low mileage, non-modified) starting to creep up in price. So if you want one, start looking.
