The rear-wheel-drive sports car Porsche 944 has been produced since 1982 at the Audi plant in the German city of Neckarsulm and was built on the platform of its predecessor – model 924. The coupe and convertible were offered from the body options.

The inline four-cylinder engine had 2.5-litre versions (from 150 hp to 220 and even 250 hp for the Turbo and Turbo S versions), 2.7 liters (165 hp) or three liters (211 HP) The convertible was only available with a three-liter engine. The Porsche 944 was equipped with a five-speed manual transmission, and a three-speed automatic was offered for the coupe with the 2.7 engine.

In 1991, the 944 was completed and replaced by the Porsche 968.

In the production of the Porsche 944, the company’s management did not seek to design the fastest, best-handling car, or the most luxurious model. They aimed to make a good, high-quality, sporty coupe. The calculation was that a potential buyer, for example, Celica, or Eclipse, could think: “but not add some more funds and buy a Porsche?”
