The Porsche 944 Turbo S represents what most authorities consider to be the highest performance version of the highly successful 944 product line. The Turbo S was introduced in 1988 as a limited production run, fitted in the same mannter as the "Turbo Cup" race car. In the following year (1989), the 944 Turbo maintained all of the performance characteristics of the 1988 Turbo S, but dropped the "S" designation. 1989 was to be the last year that Porsche imported the 944 Turbo into North America in any significant numbers.
Initially, the Turbo S was only available in a "Silver Rose Limited Edition" form. This characterization followed from their paint scheme. In addition to the performance options and Silver Rose paint, these vehiles were trimmed with a burgandy-plaid ("studio") interior. The various features and specifications of the Turbo S are found on the Vehicle Data page.
Manufacturing statistics are found on the Production data page. Initially, Porsche intended to sell 1000 of the "Silver Rose" Turbo S. However, plans changed and in the end, well over 1000 cars were made, in a variety of colors and options.
