A turbo version of the 944 was always on the cards, and it boosted the 2.5-litre engine by nearly 60bhp, whilst both the clutch and gearbox were uprated to suit. The chassis was beefed up and thicker anti-roll bars and four-pot brake callipers were fitted. A smooth nose panel and a larger rear spoiler, streamlined to offer a flat aerofoil, distinguished it from its lesser siblings. For 1988, a Turbo SE was offered with 250bhp thanks to a larger turbocharger, the transmission was again upgraded, and a limited-slip diff was fitted along with uprated brakes and Koni dampers. From 1989-1991 the 'SE' specification was adopted for the standard 944 Turbo, making it somewhat of a sleeping giant. 

We are very pleased to be able to offer this very special, 1991 944 Turbo. Normally when it comes to compiling a catalogue and website description for our customer's cars, we will look at the vendor's notes and try and create a coherent description listing all the relevant facts, emphasising the cars good points, and playing down any slightly optimistic claims. However, when the owner of this very smart 944, composed a short list for us and having seen the car, it seemed almost unnecessary to try and put it all into sentences, so we thought we would publish it exactly the way he wrote it.
