Introduced in 1982 the 944 was a better equipped, more refined and more powerful sequel to the 924, with the same trans-axle for excellent balance.
The factory-claimed 0-60 mph time of less than 9 seconds (8.3 seconds according to “Porsche the Ultimate Guide” By Scott Faragher). The factory-claimed top speed of 130 mph was also pessimistic, Autocar having verified a top speed of 137 mph. The car had nearly even front to rear weight distribution (50.7% front/49.3% rear) thanks to the rear transaxle balancing out the engine in the front.
In mid-1985, the 944 underwent its first significant changes. These included : a new dash and door panels, embedded radio antenna, upgraded alternator (from 90 amp to 115 amp), increased oil sump capacity, new front and rear cast alloy control arms and semi-trailing arms, larger fuel tank, optional heated and powered seats, Porsche HiFi sound system, and revisions in the mounting of the transaxle to reduce noise and vibration.
The “cookie cutter” style wheels used in the early 944s were upgraded to new “phone dial” style wheels (Fuchs wheels remained an option). 1985 model year cars incorporating these changes are sometimes referred to as “1985B”, “85.5” or “1985½” cars.
This one owner, So Cal, coupe is in remarkable original condition and is an absolute pleasure to drive. With only 83,000 miles from new this beauty has many fun-filled miles left.
