350 LT1 V8, 5SPD TRANS, A/C, PWR STEER/BRAKES, RUNS/DRIVES STRONG, CONVO PIECE!!

It's time to dive deeper into this 1988 Porsche 944, because beyond the bright red paint and comfy A/C interior is fuel-injected LT1 power. Yes, you read that correctly, this slick Porsche has a Corvette heart!

It's hard to go wrong with a red Porsche. The wedge shape and chiseled bodylines of the 944 have aged well, and thanks to Porsche's attention to detail, it still looks great. Part of this attraction also has to do with the more recent and professional application of Guards Red paint that gives it the kind of appearance worthy of the premium nameplate. You can tell this is a well maintained car by the way the black trim and well-integrated spoiler look crisp and dark against the vivid red. Plus, the upgraded 18-inch alloys not only fit in with the black accenting, but also the ultra-wide rear ones hint at the upgraded performance within.

The interior is well-done mix of loaded Porsche and the right upgrades. There are vintage elements, like the 911-style bucket seats with Porsche script in the inserts. But this later 944 also received modern features from the factory, like the revised dash and an airbag. It comes loaded with factory features like air conditioning, power ...

The interior is well-done mix of loaded Porsche and the right upgrades. There are vintage elements, like the 911-style bucket seats with Porsche script in the inserts. But this later 944 also received modern features from the factory, like the revised dash and an airbag. It comes loaded with factory features like air conditioning, power windows, cruise control, power steering, and the large removable sunroof that's a hallmark of the 944. Plus, there are terrific upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo w/aux input, an alarm system, and an integrated radar detection system. To help you remember, the extra gauges on the A-pillar remind you there is something special under the hood.

As much as you've seen some nice custom upgrades so far, the best one is reserved for the engine bay. That's a 350 cubic-inch V8 in place of the original four-cylinder. So the Corvette-style motor offers the same fuel-injected constancy Porsche offered, but now with a healthy upgrade in power. The way this one runs and drives tells you the transplant was a professional affair. And 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 deliver's Porsche's superior suspension design with a transaxle for good weight distribution. Plus, the fully independent suspension, lowered stance, four-wheel power disc brakes, and grippy Continental tires make this a truly awesome driving machine.

You might have thought you were looking at a value-priced 944, but in reality, this is a steal of a deal custom Porsche/Corvette. The level of quality work and attention for this unique coupe far exceeds the price. But there's only one up for grabs, so hurry up and call today!
