1986 Porsche 944 Additional Info:

This is a Renegade Hybrids Porsche 944 with a Chevrolet LT-1 5.7L V8 engine swap (www.renegadehybrids.com).
This car was built for >$30,000 and a list of all the modifications and upgrades is shown below. The car has nearly 400HP at the crank, putting ~350HP to the wheels (dyno shown in the pictures). Porsche 944 Turbo brakes and a Turbo 951 manual transmission with a limited slip differential are installed to handle the significant power upgrade. Has a high performance cam and heads, forged pistons and rods, ceramic coated headers, and custom high cooling radiator. I have most of the receipts from the build.
The car is also fitted with Sparco sports seats, a half roll cage, and a 5-point harness in addition to the standard seat belts.
<1,000 miles on the new engine install. 160,000 miles on the original car. Paint faded in spots and some dings in the sheetmetal (see photos).
Fully street legal and great if you're looking for a fun, inexpensive track car! Drive it to the track...have fun...drive home.
