1987 944 na

Hi guys, I'm new here.

According to some sources (like the list here on Pelican Parts) the 1987 base model has same engine as the 1988 model, with higher compression ratio and 158 hp.

According to other sources (like the Porsche parts catalog) the 1987 is same as earlier base models (85.5) and only the 1988 has the stronger engine.

Does anyone know which is right?

Thanks
Haim

Not knowing opís location it depends on the country. I think your statement is correct only for US cars but Iirc for row cars the 82-87 had the higher compression (10.6:1) engines and the 88 was lower compression (10.2:1).
