this 1988's model Porsche 944 Turbo S looks pretty cool. In 1991 they changed the name to Porsche 968.

The Porsche 944 is a sports car that was produced from 1982 to 1991 by the German car manufacturer Porsche. It was intended to replace the 924 but this 944 was more modern, more reliable and faster.

The alliance with Audi was maintained in the development of the 944.
This car was the entry level Porsche, now that is the Boxster (S) and Cayman (S). At the introduction of the 944 in 1982 there was only a 2-door coupe models. In 1989 the first convertible versions got on the market.

The engine was located in the front, which was unusual for a Porsche. Nevertheless, the 944 had a huge success for Porsche in the 80s.
