1986 Porsche 944 Turbo Cup

With the 944 Turbo Cup Porsche starts the tradition of the single-marque trophies with near-standard cars. The racing car features a four-cylinder engine with a turbo charger and intercooler, which delivers 162 kW at 5,800 rpm from 2,479 cc. (Since 1987: 184 kW (250 hp) at 6,000 rpm). The maximum torque is 330 Nm at 3,500 rpm (since 1987: 350 Nm at 4,000 rpm). A magnesium oil sump (standard: aluminium), a smaller generator, a modified turbo charger and reinforced engine bearings are concessions for racing. As a novelty in motorsport the engine features a three way catalytic converter. The gearbox bearing of the fully synchromesh five-speed gearbox is reinforced. The harder, height adjustable suspension with larger anti-roll bars (front 27 mm, rear 21 mm), an additional spring at the rear axle and bigger perforated brake discs, as well as a larger brake calliper at the front, allow numerous possibilities for adjustment and racing precision. A standard ABS adjusted for racing purposes comes into operation. In the 944 Turbo Cup 245/45 VR 16 inch tyres are fitted to the front axle, with rear tyres measuring 255/40 VR 16 inches.
