The Porsche 944 Turbo S is One of Our Top 5 Front Engined Porsches
Porsche is well know for making rear-engined cars and is also known for mid-engined cars. What they aren’t quite as well known for is their front engined cars. Even though since the ’80s more front-engined cars have been produced than mid or rear-engined cars, when you think of Porsche you think the engine should be behind the driver.
Even so they have made some great front engines cars and below is our top 5 list of front-engined production Porsches.
- Porsche 924 Carrera GT
The 924 Carrera GT took the 924 Turbo and added flared fenders and an intercooler to make for a special car. The result was a true supercar for its time.
- Porsche 944 Turbo S
The 944 Turbo S is perhaps the best overall turbocharged package that Porsche has ever made. The model was only available in 1988, but in 1989 the changes that went in place for the S model made it to the normal Turbo model. Performance was very good it featured power and handling upgrades from the 944 Turbo Cup race car.
- Porsche 928 GTS
The 928 GTS is perhaps the best GT car ever made. With a 5.4-liter V8 that can put out 345 horsepower it is the perfect car for high speed cruising. The GTS is the last 928 model and the best was saved for last. It was both faster and quicker while still having incredible handling.
- Porsche Panamera Turbo S
The Panamera Turbo S may have two doors too many, but it is one of the fastest cars that you can get. This sedan is able to keep up with and beat most sports cars on the road.
- Porsche 968
The 968 is the best front engined normally aspirated sports car ever produced by Porsche. The car provided performance very close to the turbo charged version. A turbocharged version was made for racing, but sadly it was never released to the public and only 13 of the racing cars were produced.
