Now available is this 1986 Porsche 944 Turbo finished in Guards Red over a lightweight racing interior. Outfitted with safety equipment and extensive performance upgrades including Moton coilovers, custom headers, a stage 2 clutch and flywheel and a standalone ECU with electronic boost control, this Turbo has been optimized for high-performance track use while still remaining street legal. Offered with 3 binders full of service records, an extra set of 18” 911 wheels and its very own trailer, this 944 is now being offered for sale by its seller in Florida with approximately 131k miles on the odometer on a branded title.
The Guards Red finish is said to remain in good condition with a few dents in the hood and some road-going wear throughout the body. The lower rocker panel on the passenger side is said to have been professionally refinished in the current ownership (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). This 1986 example features a revised front bumper and a body-colored rear diffuser which helps to distinguish this Turbo from a standard 944. OEM 17” Porsche alloy 5-spoke wheels are currently equipped and dressed in Firestone Indy 500 tires, although an extra set of 18” Porsche 911 wheels will be included in sale as well.
Inside, the black interior has been partially stripped out for weight savings and outfitted with safety equipment including a fire suppression system and Corbeau racing seats on sliders with 6- and 5-point harnesses. Other modifications include a quick-disconnect steering wheel, a Race-Keeper video logging system, a Dell computer with software and a Lenovo digital engine dashboard.
This 944 carries a turbocharged 2.5L inline 4-cylinder engine which is rated at 220 HP stock. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transmission with an upgraded stage 2 clutch and flywheel. The following upgrades have also been installed allowing for a claimed output of 305 WHP at 10psi:

The sale of this 944 will include a trailer, 3 binders worth of service records, the original front bumper, rear seats, ECU and headlights assemblies, extra wheels, trailer and an assortment of spare parts. If you’re an enthusiast looking to get out on the track in a vintage Porsche, this 944 Turbo makes the perfect choice.
