Porsche 944

In model year 1982, a fourth Porsche model line came onto the market. The 944 bridged the price and performance gap between the 924 and the 911 SC.

Although the body of the 944 was based on the 924, it had considerably more striking contours. The 944 also featured a 2.5-liter in-line four-cylinder engine developed by Porsche. The 944 was therefore viewed as a "true" Porsche in the eyes of customers. This transaxle model was also produced by Audi in Neckarsulm.

A front spoiler painted in the exterior color with square rubber buffers as well as much wider, slightly angular wings clearly distinguished the 944 from the 924. The 2.5-liter 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 model year 1988, which increased the power to 160 hp. For the last model year (1989), the displacement was increased to 2.7 liters and the power grew to 165 hp.

944 S (model year 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 Turbo.
The 3.0-liter 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 Turbo model.
The 944 S2 was also available in a Cabriolet version from the very beginning.
