Thats correct the 1983 944 uses these manual latches that fit all 1983 - 1995 944-968 cars and sunroof panel. You simply pull and twist a mechanical lever/lock and up it goes for easy propped up driving with front latches still locked like bennkishh says or you can remove completely for storing in garage or back hatch area for full open top.

The 1983 944 had a little leather strap attached to sunroof panel trim that snapped into place on car so as not to bounce way up for safety but unless you drive crazy or go over a huge bump at speed you would not have a problem as the front latches are still locked in.
'83 944 ROW zermatt silver/black, sunroof & A/C factory deleted, houndstooth sport seats, 7Q - 220 LSD short fifth, F & R 23.3 MM 951 M030 suspension, 16" fuch's, manual windows, club sport mirrors, Blk/Wht gauges, rear seats & all sound deadening removed, 968 rear wing, fiberglass hood & 937 F bumper
