GUARDS RED, 5.7L LT1 FUEL INJECTED SWAP, 4-WHEEL DISCS, 5-SPEED MANUAL, COOL!

It's time to dive deeper into this 1983 Porsche 944, because beyond the bright red paint is LT1 V8 power. Yes, you read that correctly, this slick Porsche has a fuel-injected small block heart!

The wedge shape and chiseled bodylines of the 944 have aged well, and thanks to Porsche's attention to detail, it still looks quite striking. Of course, part of this attraction has to do with the bold paint. This was born a desirable Guards Red coupe, and a good respray later in life means it retains an attractive shine. Not only do the body panels look nice, but also you can tell this is a well-maintained car by the way the black bumpers, trim, and well-integrated spoiler look against the vivid red. It's all part of the factory's handsome packaging. So the only real ways you can tell about the upgraded heart are the subtle decals on the fenders and the upgraded to Porsche Cup II-style 17-inch wheels.

The interior is well-done mix of loaded Porsche and the right upgrades. It starts with good factory features, like power windows, power steering, and the large removable sunroof that's a hallmark of the 944. There's even an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with remote. And while this is all ... Please ask for the full description.

GUARDS RED, 5.7L LT1 FUEL INJECTED SWAP, 4-WHEEL DISCS, 5-SPEED MANUAL, COOL!

It's time to dive deeper into this 1983 Porsche 944, because beyond the bright red paint is LT1 V8 power. Yes, you read that correctly, this slick Porsche has a fuel-injected small block heart!

The wedge shape and chiseled bodylines of the 944 have aged well, and thanks to Porsche's attention to detail, it still looks quite striking. Of course, part of this attraction has to do with the bold paint. This was born a desirable Guards Red coupe, and a good respray later in life means it retains an attractive shine. Not only do the body panels look nice, but also you can tell this is a well-maintained car by the way the black bumpers, trim, and well-integrated spoiler look against the vivid red. It's all part of the factory's handsome packaging. So the only real ways you can tell about the upgraded heart are the subtle decals on the fenders and the upgraded to Porsche Cup II-style 17-inch wheels.

The interior is well-done mix of loaded Porsche and the right upgrades. It starts with good factory features, like power windows, power steering, and the large removable sunroof that's a hallmark of the 944. There's even an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with remote. And while this is all comfortable, the real focus of the interior is on performance. You have Corbeau racing seats, RCI four-point racing harness, and a Brey Krause four-point harness bar. The steering wheel is now a grippy Momo unit. It gives you a clear view to the white-faced gauge package, and there are additional handy SunPro readouts to the side.

As much as you've seen some nice custom upgrades so far, the best one is reserved for the engine bay. That's a 5.7-liter LT1 V8 in place of the original four-cylinder. So the small block motor delivers the same fuel-injected constancy Porsche offered, but now with a healthy upgrade in performance. This even has roller rockers, aluminum heads, and custom headers. This is a well-done installation that includes a BBK strut tower brace. The five-speed manual transmission gives you complete control to harness the upgrade in power. We love this kind of V8 upgrade, because it also still delivers Porsche's superior suspension design with a transaxle for good weight distribution. Plus, the fully independent suspension, four-wheel power disc brakes (with upgraded Wilwoods up front,) and grippy Yokohama sport tires make this a truly awesome driving machine.

The sale comes complete with come nice extras, like a car covers as well as a condenser and compressor if you want to add A/C. This is a custom car wrapped in a precision German body. So if you love a sleek Porsche with serious power added, call today!
