  1. Nice car! The 944 is under-appreciated, likely due to its little brother, the not so great 924.

    Funny part of this article is it mentions “a failure”. As a guy who used to work at a Porsche dealer, I know the failures of those original engines very well. They paid y mortgage for years.

  2. Looks clean i like your interior its like my 86 951 black & grey two tone yours is much cleaner did you switch Dme for turbo swap. I love 951s i have 3 86 black w b/g int 87 blk w tan leather and 89 lightblue w blue int 217 hp first 2 last 250 hp stock
