1986 Porsche 944 (The Red One)
Last updated Sep 4, 2007
Guards Red, aluminum alloy body (light and won't rust) black leather interior. Front engine rear aluminum transaxle for 50/50 balance. 2+2 seating with fold down rear seat and a big cargo area. My first Porsche and were the addiction started. Bought it from my sister and used to just sit at my desk and stare at it the parking lot below thinking to myself is that really mine? Is that really mine? Too cool!
2.5 liter, aluminum block and head slant 4, fuel injected, 5 speed. Close to 30mpg on the highway. One of the best slalom cars ever made- has been called "Possibly the greatest steering car in production history." Smooth and stable at 150.
Leather interior, heated seats, rear wiper.
I think most things were standard which include power- windows, mirrors, driver seat, steering, sun roof, hatch. Driving lights, cruise control, built in alarm system with separate key lock on the drivers side quarter panel next to the door, a/c (including a vent in the glove box) rear defrost, headlight washers, engine compartment light, seperate front, rear and hatch area lights, glove box light, tool kit, electric tire pump.
K&N air filter, header, exhaust, chip, bra.

I need to get back to VA and take some real good photos of The Red One so I don't lose another challenge! Well maybe I need to get a 944 turbo instead and tune it to the hilt or maybe just swap out the 2.5 liter for the 5.0 liter engine from my 928 hehehe.
