1987 Porsche 944 at Spec Clutch SEMA 2013

LS-powered 550hp weekend warrior

Nov 6, 2013

Found at the Spec Clutch booth at SEMA 2013 is this 1987 Porsche 944 - originally a 944 (951) Turbo. Owned by David Norton, owner of Spec Clutch, it is a street and weekend track day car. Unique to the build is the 402cc LS2 engine with LS3 heads.

Norton says, "This is my fourth 944 Turbo, bought for track days. It's my favorite chassis because of the balance and look of car. My first Porsche was also a 951 Turbo."

Its aftermarket features include a Spec carbon clutch, Guard Transmission diff, custom 4- inch single stainless steel exhaust with headers from Stainless Works, Bilstien coilovers, Broadfoot Racing widebody aero, Lindsey Racing nose, GT Racing hood and Kognition Design carbon wing. The cockpit sensors are stock but work with the LS - a carbon dash is planned to drop weight.

To stay safe on track, a full roll cage and 928 GTS brake calipers slowing Fikse Profile 5 wheels are also equipped. Look out for this 550hp (on 93 octane) 944 at the owner's favorite track, Road Atlanta.
