Porsche Crest 911/944 common parts?

Here I am at my job and Saturday is half gone and all I have done is work so far! (life is so unfair!) Darn, I just heard thunder which means another power blip is on the way which means I will have to go through the building and reset all the computers again, so I will make this short.

I have my suspicions that the 911 shared a few parts with the 944, specifically the steering wheels, seats, and possibly some wheels/rims? Can anyone confirm/deny/add to the list?

TIA

Same radiators?




Sure - there are a few. For starters, I've seen later seats, steering wheels, wheel rims (even phone dials on some 911s - but I think they look horrible on them).............and hood crests


Internally, they're just a different beast altogether.

Funny you brought this up. Just this afternoon I was reading a road test of the 993TT from an old magazine, and I was amused that the control panel for the AC/heating controls was the exact same as the '85.5+ 944. I'm sure a number of other interior parts, switches and seats are the same. Plus the 911s used Fuchs wheels (same offset, I think) until the end of the 80's.

Other than some electrical and interior components, not much at all. (obviously I am excluding nuts and bolts)

The DME relay used in some of the new cars work in the 944. Other relays as well.

Brake calipers were the same on many Porsche models.

The air-compressor, toolkit, scissor jack and some collapsable spare tires were also shared between the 911 and the 944.

It's easy to spot the same components if you have the PET CD-ROM: just look for part numbers on a 944 beginning with 911 or 964! Also: many of our parts are also from the 928 parts bin.

And I think the front motor mounts were also the same in the 911/944!

specifically - I have seen the three spoke steering wheel and cookie cutter wheels on 911's and the early seats look very similar also.
I am just wondering if I see these parts at a swap meet/used parts dealer if they are usable.

Oh and don't they use the same the rear hatch seal.
