1989 944 Turbo Cup Replica

  • Below is a detailed listing of my 1989 944 Turbo which was previously converted to a Turbo Cup replica.  Very solid attention to detail went into this replica build, and no penny was spared and no corner was cut.  If you want a TURN-KEY track vehicle for those weekends at Mid Ohio or VIR, this Turbo Cup replica is for you!


    My 1989 Turbo Cup Replica


    In 2015, I purchased a converted 944 Turbo S to the Turbo Cup spec for G-class in PCA. The car is also eligible in SCCA & NASA. The car was stripped to the base chassis and completely rebuilt. Pretty much every gasket, bushing, bearing and bolt. I have a box of receipts from 2009 to current. Car has a title, and I currently have it registered for use on the road.

    I purchased this from a Rennlist member with grand intentions of taking my passion for flying fast jets to the track, but life (2 more kids, working 12-14 hour days, TDY, PCS...) gets in the way.

    Car holds many class wins at Road America, Sebring and Mid-Ohio. It also currently holds the lap record at Mid-Ohio in G class. You can see the full race history at http://rennpoints.com/driverhistory/?racer=684
