Motorsport Monday: 1987 Porsche 944 LS1

Back in December, I wrote up a 944 LS1 swap. I was disappointed that the S2 motor was gone and the car had some questionable wheels and graphics, but overall the smile per dollar ratio was pretty high. Today, I have another LS1 swapped 944; this time, it was a Turbo, and now it’s a track monster. With near perfect 50/50 weight distribution for that sub-3,000 pounds, instant torque and a stiff racing setup, this car is ready to beat just about anything you show up in:

This car is quite well setup, all things considered, and I think it looks great in what appears to be Viper Green. The build sheet is impressive and likely only surpassed by the performance that the package delivers. The price for this amount of work seems high at initial look – nearly $40,000 for a 944 seems pretty far out of line. But when you consider what the performance per a dollar is on this package, this is likely one of the best setup, cheapest racing Porsches you can buy in this performance envelope.
