Reading my December issue of GRM today.  The pictured car is not an '87 944 Turbo, unless it was seriously molested.

  • Wrong front valence: 944 Turbo and S2 has a rounded shape.
  • Wrong wheels: the pictured five-spoke Fuchs alloys fit up through MY86.  For 87, the offset changed and so did the wheels.
  • Wrong antenna.  I think the antenna poking out of the front fender showed up on only the early 944 eight-valve, normally aspirated cars.

The pictured car is probably an '83 or '84 eight-valve, normally aspirated 944.  Cheers,

Kevin

And most of the time they're better for it.

I'd be kinda disappointed if these cars weren't absolutely beat and/or modified.

That's the whole point, isn't it?
