MODEL: 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo Coupe
OWNER: Edward M.
This was the first year of production for the 944 Turbo, built upon the knowledge gained from producing the 944 since 1983. The Turbo added nearly 50% more power, boosted by a KKK turbocharger that kicked in after 3,500 rpms and kept the car competitively quick with the showroom companions 911 Turbo and 928S. In fact, in some ways the car overstepped the 911 Carrera and for those in-the-know, the 951 was a worthy choice at a bargain price – at least compared to other European sports cars.
