Fast Facts:
  • 1989 Turbo models are identical to the limited production Turbo “S” model of the previous year (1988). The only difference was that the ’89 Turbo didn’t have the “M030” suspension pack or Club Sport wheels as standard like the 1988 “S”, although this example has both
  • The “S” model was loosely based on Porsche’s 944 Turbo Cup race car. Each hand assembled engine was bench tested by the factory for 30 min before installation
  • The 1988 Turbo “S” and ’89+ Turbos feature Porsche’s desirable M44/52 engine, which now makes only 30hp less than the 911 Turbo (curb weight is the exact same @ 3000 lbs). It also makes 30hp more than the old 944 Turbo, achieved by swapping the turbocharger housing for a larger KKK K26-8 unit and increasing boost. However, an M44/52 powered 944 will feel faster than the 30hp bump suggests thanks to revised engine mapping – maximum boost of 10.9 psi now lasts until 5,800 RPM (on previous Turbo models, the boost would drop to 7.5 psi by 5800 RPM)
  • The M030 package consists of Koni shocks/struts, bigger anti-roll bars (30mm front/25.5mm rear), upgraded brakes from the heavier, V8 powered 928 S4, and wider forged Clubsport wheels. The optional 40% locking limited slip (found on this example) uses a 3.375:1 axle ratio
  • To cope with the increased power, the transmissions in Turbo models have a hardened 1st and 2nd gear, as well as an added transmission cooler. A special high friction clutch makes it easier to handle hard launches and high RPM shifts
  • The 2.5L engine in the 944 features a high bore to stroke ratio of 1.267 (bore 100mm/stroke 78.9mm). For reference, a ratio between 1.2 to 1.3 is race engine territory – production engines rarely ever come close to 1.3. The shorter the stroke, the slower the piston speed – this reduces drag in the engine, making the 944’s M44/52 well suited for high RPM operation
  • This engine also includes forged pistons, a high-temperature rated valvetrain, and ceramic inserts in both the exhaust ports and intake air cooler (same as all 2.5L 944 cars)
  • The aerodynamic floors and splash shields provide a smooth passage of air under the car to the new rear diffuser. Porsche claims this aids in cooling the transmission, exhaust, and fuel tank
Key Model Year Changes:
  • 1989 Turbo models are identical to the Turbo “S” model of the previous year. And while the ’89 Turbo didn’t have the “M030” suspension pack or Club Sport wheels as standard like the ’88 “S”, this example has both
  • Porsche stopped selling the 944 (951) in the U.S in 1990
