1987 Porsche 944 S Additional Info:

I have had this car for more than 12 years and it started out as a complete and stock car. There is a clear California title in my name, though the vehicle has been listed as non operational and has not been on public roads since 2005. This vehicle is track day only with many modifications and extensive maintenance.

Has alert lights for thresholds on all parameters.
As you can see there are many modifications and this is a very quick car, usually top three overall due to setup and reliability. The car is very light and there have been no compromises to suspension setup, stock motor and transaxle means runs on pump gas, is reliable and easily repaired. Every winter belts replaced, spark plugs replaced, air filter cleaned, transaxle, brake fluid, radiator flushed. Every event oil changed, brakes bled, fluids checked.
If you are looking for a great track day tool, this is a good one. It is very easy on tires (and they are inexpensive), brakes, and fuel. 944 is considered one of the best handling cars stock with the primary issue being power. The "S" motor provides more power than the base motor and all of the rubber has been removed from the suspension, this thing handles incredibly well!
