Color options for the 1986 944 Turbo

An email regarding color options for the 1986 944 Turbo. The information presented includes the 1986 to 1988 Turbo models (but not the Turbo S model, nor the 1989 + Turbo model).


Do you have the factory colors available for the 951 in 1986?




Thanks for your question (and presumably for viewing my Porsche 944 Turbo Resource, as well)! I have the color options for the 1986 944 model (as in the normally aspirated non-turbo model); however, I believe the color options were the same for both models. According to my 1986 944 Brochure, they are as follows:

Copenhagen Blue
Sapphire Metallic*
Stone Grey Metallic*
Kalahari Metallic*
Pastel Beige
Alpine White
Garnet Red Metallic*
Graphite Metallic*
Mahogany Metallic*
Guards Red
Zermatt Silver Metallic*
Crystal Green Metallic**

* metallic paint colors are a more desirable (more expensive) factory option.

The paint codes that are given in this brochure do not match up to the actual paint codes (I suspect they were chosen to simplify the ordering process for customers); but I am fairly positive that each of those paint options is accurate for the 86 Turbo model as well as the standard NA model.

A bit of searching also lead me to Clark’s Garage (another good technical resource). There are only two differences according to Clark’s: Clark’s lists India Red (which I am fairly positive is Guards Red), and also lists a Pearl White Metallic option as well. You can view the entire list here:

I hope that answers your question! Please reply if you have any other questions regarding the 944 Turbo!
