Porsche 944 Turbo
In 1983, Porsche presented the 944, which proved to be an important model for the brand. One of the main features of this new car was a 2.5-liter four cylinder that could deliver 170 HP at first. This may not be an impressive number today, but it was potent by mid-80’s standards. The evolution of the Porsche 944 included enlarging the 2.5-liter four to 3.0-liters to produce 211 HP in the S2 form.
But the most interesting version was the 944 Turbo S. It had a 2.5-liter turbocharged engine that could put out 250 HP. Due to its light weight, solid transmission and aerodynamics, the 944 Turbo S was a fast car. The 0 to 60 mph took only 5.5 seconds and it could top 162 mph. Even today, this little Porsche can outrun some modern sports cars.
