Porsche 944 was introduced in 1982 as Porsche’s new entry level model. The Porsche 944 was a replacement for the Porsche 924, although the 924 stayed in production until 1988 as an even lower-priced alternative. The Porsche 944 was based on the 924, but featured numerous changes including updated bodywork. The interior was mostly the same as in the 924. The 944 was introduced with a 2.5-litre straight-4 engine. The 4-cylinder engine was basically one half of the Porsche 928’s 5.0-litre V8 engine. While the engine design was very similar to the V8, very few parts were interchangeable.
