Porsche 944 Turbo S ~ 1988-1988

In 1988 Porsche offered a special edition 944 Turbo, called the Turbo S (or SE in the UK, for Special Equipment). This limited edition model was around 10 percent more expensive than the standard Turbo, and featured an uprated engine that produced 250bhp. The extra power came courtesy of a larger K26-70 turbocharger and a revised engine management system. The power went through a strengthened transmission with a thicker (25.5mm) torque tube and a limited-slip differential as standard. Uprated brakes and adjustable Koni dampers were also fitted.

The Turbo S was originally offered in a distinctive Silver Rose Metallic paintwork, which was a pinkish silver. It had large ‘Turbo’ decals on the top of the right-hand front wing. The pink theme continued inside, with Studio checked fabric on the doors and seats. However, as many buyers didn’t like this colour combination, Porsche offered the full range of exterior and interior colours for the Turbo S. The specification inside was luxurious, with fully electric and heated seats, and a Blaupunkt Berlin radio-cassette head unit.
