1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S Limited Edition
The Porsche 944 Turbo is looking better than ever to Porsche aficionados because it outhandles classic 911s and nearly matches their acceleration — at a mere fraction of their current prices.
Widely regarded as the best handling supercar of the 1980s, the Porsche 944 is exhilarating to drive on racetracks and mountain switchbacks. But it is also quite practical for everyday use thanks to ample interior space and handling ease. This unrivaled combination of supercar performance and everyday practicality makes it one of the best selling Porsches ever.
The 944 handles aggressive moves much better than the 924 and offers more civilized cornering than the rear-heavy 911 thanks in part to a nearly perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Steering is light and accurate, and braking is highly controlled courtesy of 12-inch ventilated discs, 4-piston Brembo calipers and ABS.
Porsche’s powerful 2.5-liter inline-four SOHC engine is basically the right-hand cylinder bank of a V8 5-liter engine from the Porsche 928. Mounted in front, it features water cooling, an aluminum block and head, and two counter-rotating balance shafts that help deliver performance as smooth as a six-cylinder engine.
In the 1988 944 Turbo, the engine generates 220 horsepower and 243 ft-lb of torque for a 0 to 60 mph time of 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 157 mph. It also provides instant acceleration for passing when traveling at high speeds.
This beautiful black 1988 Porsche 944 Turbo has been lovingly cared for from smoothly integrated bumper and retractable headlights to curvy glass hatch and molded rubber spoiler. Its galvanized body panels are in great condition and the handsome burgundy interior has minimal wear.
You can visit local tracks for exhilarating weekend workouts and bring along a companion with the assurance of SRS airbags. Then enjoy the easy handling and generous luggage space for commuting and shopping the rest of the week. The rear seats are comfortable for kids or modestly sized friends, and their seatbacks can be folded down to lengthen the luggage area.
