The 944 Turbo is one of those unique and obscure cars that has always caught my eye but I never fully appreciated until I bought this one. I am excited to share my experience with this car and it will be hitting the auction block soon on bring a trailer!

The For the 1986 model year, Porsche introduced the 944 Turbo, known internally as the 951. The Turbo had a turbocharged and intercooled version of the standard 944. The Turbo was the first Porsche production car utilising a ceramic port liner to retain exhaust gas temperature along with new forged pistons and was also the first vehicle to produce an identical power output with or without a catalytic converter. The Turbo also featured several other changes, such as improved aerodynamics, notably an integrated front bumper. This featured the widest turn signals (indicators) fitted to any production car, a strengthened gearbox with a different final drive ratio, standard external oil coolers for both the engine and transmission, standard 16 inch wheels (optional forged Fuchs wheels), and a slightly stiffer suspension (progressive springs) to handle the extra weight. The Turbo’s front and rear brakes were borrowed from the 911. This car is very cool and lots of fun to look at and drive.

The 944 turbo is a emerging collectible sports car and a very smart purchase for someone looking to start or add to your Porsche Collection! For my money makers and wheel shakers the 944 Turbo is one to have!

  1. Ive always thought of this car as a Porsche that Porsche owners laugh at saying its not good but ive always wanted to like it. Good vid 4 me.

  2. I got my 83 944 and my 83 911 SC in the Hamptons on Long Island, were they give away cars and they all only have 30k on them even 86 SAABs I got a dark blue 88 560 SEl with 13 k for 3,000 like it was driven off the showroom,one Saab I got and the Benz still had those little spikes of rubber on the tires lol and the 83 944 because there driven in town only once a year for a few months, I've bought German cars that go for 30-50k for 3-4 grand with 30k and made a fortune,the 83 body style was my favorite but was a dog, so I did an LS1 and got the weight down to 2,900 pounds and both Porsches are under car covers at my dads summer house in a barn, there worth 80% more then I paid, the 944 I got for 1,200 lol original Guards red wet-sanded like new and the interior was perfect added phone dails then i for free drove an 88 944 turbo off someone's lawn, they just wanted it gone,i put in 800 and waited untill 2012 and sold it for 22,000 lol and all the cars from the super-rich have dealer records and have been serviced only by the dealers…maybe i should get a flat bed or trailer and do that for fun,as I'm retired now,i also had a POresche rally cup racer (i paid by the day) to teach me how to worked on the the first air cooled 911 and thee 944 before the convert,which the oil in the radiator issue wasnt fixed until the 85.5 and left me with a Rally shirt from Porsche saying mechanic,as he told my those 3 engines you pocked up so fast you're now a mechanic for those to engines lol

  3. Most underrated car ever, bought one in 1992 and still drive it. it is an old lady now but still drives and looks like a panther.

  4. great job on the video. I remember when I grew up. we called this "the poor mans Porsche". Great deals still on the internet, can find a decent one for 10K, and not so decent ones as low as 5K. But don't you think the Porsche 928 is a much better bang for the buck?

  5. I’ve owned 4 911s (86 3.2 carrera, 88 3.3 turbo, 07 carrera and 11 carrera 4S) And, I recently bought and sold an 88 944 Turbo and I made $9k after owning it for only it for a year. It was a joy to drive. A word of caution is that these are highly complex cars; very over engineered. I sold it before it would kill me in the cost of repairs. I wouldn’t touch one now. They are too expensive to buy, that is, good examples. So the value prop isn’t there. I bought mine for $15k. I made $9k when I sold it. I was simply lucky. Cheers!

  6. I’m trying to convince my dad to get me one for my 16 year old car just because they are awesome and cheap

  7. Yeah.. Thanks but no thanks.
    If I want to buy this shape of car, I'll just get me a bmw 850i v12.
    No offense, but the car looks like shit. And no there's no mystique in it.
    The only vibe you'll get from such car is of someone who couldn't afford a 911.

  8. i could of bought one of these in the uk for £1000 in 2015 but i bought a motocross bike insted and now i cant get a rubbish one for £5000

  9. Guess i fucked up big time. Had an 86 951 turbo. Got it for $2700 in 2011. Ran like a dream. Started leaking from the main seal, timing belt was old, I freaked out, sold it for $3000. Now I have a 335i and a Tesla. Wish I kept the 951 as a weekend car.

  10. I have mine for 20 years this Sept ! At this stage to me she is part of our family – she has 67k miles ! I've had tyre kickers, investors and other low life's offer big money for mine – there is no chance ! Pop up headlights are class btw

  11. My dad had an '89 model when he was my age. He always said it was awesome, but broke down way too much. Ended up trading it in on a '94 Miata.

  12. Guys in 100k 911’s get less attention than my 944 does. Modern 911’s are commonplace. You rarely see a 944. Many react as if they’ve never seen one.

  13. Where do all these idiots come from, I mean the type of youtuber that feels so knowledgeable about everything as to give a full lesson on their experience on anything at the time of unboxing. Like this guy, is trying to give you the impression that he can teach you EVERYTHING about this car after checking the wikipedia page. Truth is, the prices he talk about (even for a 5k car that don't really exist – the odometer resets at 100k LOL) are soo far out there, you could get a clean 928 with a V8. He doesn't even know where the switch is for the mirror… the A/C still works (on my '83) so you don't take the sunroof off (you just open it, eventually) and he doesn't even mention why people like this cars, because they handle so well – he said the 911 did, but back then they were called widowmakers, and the 944 was doing something about the crazy weight distribution, and turned corners way better than 911 at the time. The Fucks rims are for snobs and way older 911's, they're only popular cause they cost more, all the original rims are prettier and the telephone dials makes it look like a turbo. I could go on and on cause this car is so close to my heart, but my point is. Don't listen to this guy, he's got it all wrong. But check out the 944 for yourself, perhaps on other videos made by people that knows what they talk about, like here https://www.youtube.com/user/edredas

  15. This video came at the perfect time . My son and I are in the process of buying a 1986 . It’s a high mileage car 137k but in great condition . Priced under 15. We’re excited

  16. Thanks for all the positive comments…As to the negative…I have never said I am a car expert. I am a very passionate enthusiast. My main gig is painting canvas but I absolutely love automobiles and the art of automotive design. I will try to provide more content soon but I am extremely busy with art. Thank you again to all my subscribers and I hope you will continue to view what I have coming up soon!

  17. They are balanced cars for driving at 100mph, or twisty roads. I had one , now I have a 924s. Got to fix the brakes and few other odds and ends. It's made ti be driven
