The Porsche 944 Turbo Is an Underrated Old-School Porsche

1988 Porsche 944 Turbo Review

Doug DeMuro makes the case for the Porsche 944 Turbo in one of his signature review videos. It didn’t take Porsche’s engineers long to significantly improve on the base 944’s performance by doing the obvious and adding a turbocharger to the engine. The 944 Turbo entered production in 1985 for the 1986 production year and it made a significant difference to the stock 944’s performance. Power of the new turbocharged engine was 220hp and torque was 243lb/ft, a significant increase over the naturally aspirated standard 944.

The Porsche 944 Turbo is a cool old-school Porsche — and Doug makes the case for why this is one cool car. In typical Dough fashion, he shows you all the quirks and features of the 944 Turbo, and all the interesting things about it. Then he get out and drive the 944 Turbo and reviews the driving experience.
