Porsche Panorama, the glossy mag for members of the Porsche Club of America, put together an entertaining new vs. old test for the latest issue. It features ace hotshoe David Donohue putting the 1987 Porsche 944 Turbo through its paces against one of the new breed, a 2017 Porsche Macan GTS at Virginia International Raceway.
The 944 Turbo has less power, but also less weight to throw around; it’s also in the proper front-engine, rear-drive format. And it has a manual transmission. The Macan GTS is about as far from the 944 as you can get and still be a Porsche. It’s all-wheel drive, tall and way more powerful (217 hp vs. 360 hp).
Who wins? Take a guess, and let Mr. Donohue do his thing.
