Although the body of the 944 was based on the 924, it had considerably more striking contours. The 944 also featured a 2.5-litre in-line four-cylinder engine developed by
A front spoiler painted in the exterior colour with square rubber buffers as well as much wider, slightly angular wings clearly distinguished the 944 from the 924. The 2.5-litre engine initially developed 163 hp; a catalytic converter version with 150 hp was introduced as of MY 86. The engine with catalytic converter was tuned for unleaded fuel with 95 RON in MY 1988, which increased the power to 160 hp. For the last model year (1989), the displacement was increased to 2.7 litres and the power grew to 165 hp.
944 S (MY 1987-88)
The 944 S was identical to the 944 in body design and equipment. However, this model was equipped with a four-valve engine for the first time, which developed up to 190 hp. A badge embossed with "16 Ventiler" was therefore available as an option behind the flasher repeaters.
944 S2 (1989-1991)
In model year 1989, the S2 model replaced the 944 S. It had the more muscular body, rear diffusor and (as of MY 91) the rear wing of the 944
The 3.0-litre four-valve engine of the 944 S2 generated 211 hp and brought the successor to the S model to a performance level that almost matched that of the
The 944 S2 was also available in a Cabriolet version from the very beginning.

The specified charging outputs and times (hour/minutes) are dependent on various factors: in general, the charging output and time can vary due to physical and chemical limits, depending on factors such as the available output of the country-specific energy infrastructure, the customer's own domestic installation, the temperature, interior pre-conditioning and charging status, as well as the age of the battery. Charging times may therefore be significantly higher than those specified. To achieve the optimum value of the specified DC charging time (DC = direct current) for a charge status increase from 5 to 80%, a CCS (combined charging system) fast-charging pedestal with > 270kW and > 850V is required, as well as a battery temperature of 30°–35°C. The charging status when commencing charging must not exceed 5%. For physical and chemical reasons, the charging speed decreases as the battery approaches its full capacity. Therefore, it usually makes sense to use fast DC charging to charge the battery up to 80% or up to the required range. The predominant use of CCS fast charging pedestals leads to a long-term increase in charging times. For regular fast DC charging, we recommend a maximum charging output of 50kW. When charging in a domestic environment, AC charging (AC = alternating current) is recommended. Using an (AC) industrial electrical outlet will result in improved efficiency and a much shorter charging time compared to using a household socket.
