The 944 represented a departure from the traditional 911 design that created a car with excellent poise and balance. Its front water-cooled engine and rear mounted 5spd transaxle gave it a 50/50 weight balance and a control unmatched in its day and still quite good today.
The cars in various forms were imported to the US from 1983 through 1991. The cars eligible for the 944 spec series are US specification cars 944 model years 1983 through 1988 and 924S model years 1987 and 1988. These cars have 2.5L 4 cylinders engines that pump out approximately 150 hp which translates into 130-135 rear wheel hp in 944-spec trim. While modest by today's standards these 8v aluminum engines can still propel the cars to 110 to 120 mph at most race tracks. For more information on 944 spec racing click here
