In late 1985 Porsche introduced the 944 Turbo, a high-performance variant of the naturally aspirated model. Using the same 2.5 litre engine, this new model had a turbocharged and intercooled engine that produced 220 hp at 6000 rpm. Its turbo was the world‘s first car application using a ceramic portliner to retain exhaust gas temperature. The Turbo also featured several other revisions, such as improved aerodynamics, strengthened gearbox, standard transmission oil cooler, wider wheels, and upgraded suspension. Major engine component revisions, more than thirty in all, were made to the 944 Turbo to compensate for increased internal loads and heat. In October 1988 the 2.5 litre unit was replaced with a 2.7 litre motor, giving the 944 Turbo 250 bhp and a 0-60 mph time of around 6 seconds.
