Introduced in 1982 in order to replace the 924, the Porsche 944 served as an entry-level model. The 924 actually remained available to the buying public as a lower-priced option until 1988. Production for the Porsche 944 came to an end in 1991, at which time it was replaced by the 968.
The Porsche 944 proved to be highly successful for Porsche throughout the 1980s. During its full production run, the Porsche 944 was available in a variety of different formats, including the original Porsche 944 as well as the 944 S, the 944 Turbo, the 944 Turbo S, and the 944S2.
When it was first introduced, the Porsche 944 featured a 2.5 L straight-4 engine with a design that was based on part of the 928's V8 engine. Although there were similarities to the V8, it is notable that few Porsche 944 parts were actually interchangeable. The Porsche 944 was technically based on a previous 924 model; however, there were numerous changes that included a rear spoiler and updated bodywork that featured flared wings. For the most part, the interior of the 944 was much the same as the 924. The one notable exception was updated climate control switches. The Porsche 944 experienced its first significant changes in 1985. At that time, the vehicle was given an improved air conditioning system and ergonomics.
