I am pretty sure it will. I think the only difference is the 944 has the antenna in the windshield.

Well, there's two 944 windshields,
the pre 1986 one, which is identical to the 924/924s one,
and the later "flush" ones, which will also fit,
but you need
a) a 9 mm spacer frame
b) different wipers

Pretty sure he meant to say 'Pre 1985.5'

All pre 85.5 windshields are identical (except the Carrera GT which got the post 85.5 windshield). It takes much more than just a spacer to make a late windshield work.

I just had a new aftermarket 1988 944 windshield installed in 1994 968 by Triumph Glass here in Lafayette, LA for $195 (took 45 minutes at most). Looked good and this included a 3/4" rubber strip around it. Since there is a slight size difference. Looked great. This is a track car but would have used in a street car since the 968 windshield is $650 if you can find it.
