The Porsche 944 was presented at the IAA in 1981. Both technically and visually, it was based on the 924, which had appeared five years earlier. However, the Audi engine of the 924, which had been criticized by Porsche purists, was replaced by a genuine Porsche engine: a 2.5-liter inline four, essentially a halved 5.0-liter V8 from the 928.
A turbo version was introduced in 1985. Further power upgrades came with the 944 S in 1987 and the 944 S2 in 1989. The 3.0-liter inline four with 155 kW (211 hp) was the largest displacement inline four in a production passenger car when it debuted. The most powerful engine with 184 kW (250 hp) or optionally 221 kW (300 hp) was offered in the special 944 Turbo S model in 1988.
A convertible was only available in 1990 and 1991. Thanks to the transaxle layout, the 944’s roadholding was excellent, which is why it won the “Best Handling Production Car in America” award in 1984. In 1991, the 944 was replaced by the 968, which retained the characteristic styling elements of the 924/944.
