Turbocharging is a way of life at Weissach. If a blower can possibly be bolted onto a Porsche engine, it will be---at the earliest opportunity. In the case of the 944, the 1986 model year is your cue to celebrate life on the plus side of the manifold-pressure gauge. Where does this leave the regular 944? The truth of the matter is that most of us at Car and Driver prefer it to the Turbo for everything but flat-out, high-speed, get-me-to-the-church-on-time pursuits. The standard 944 has better throttle response and its steering feels sharper on center. Furthermore, the normally aspirated 944 is about the best sports-car value going. This is more true than ever for 1986, because Porsche has seen fit to give this machine several new suspension components and a new instrument panel (both of which were developed for the Turbo) without raising the price a smidgen. All of which makes one wonder what exactly Porsche has in mind for next year.
