Back on April Fool’s Day 2018 we published an article here about the reintroduction of the 944 by Porsche – total fabrication, Happy April Fool’s Day!. Anyway, it was by far the most popular, talked about and read article ever published on this site.

The FCR has over a thousand members who could attend, bringing something north of six hundred Porsches to any event. Monthly meetings usually bring fifty or more together, and this night was no exception.
Suspension upgrades and settings are a big discussion topic anytime performance-oriented 944/924S people get together. How can I make my car handle better on the track? How can I tune my suspension to make it work better?

Since the Cup drivers only see two road courses a year, seeing them attempt to negotiate Charlotte’s 2.2 mile, very tight road course would prove to be interesting to say the least.
When I got in the car, I had the key in hand but not in the ignition, and the battery light was on. Key in the ignition, turn it on, and the battery light went off. Crank up the car, and no battery light. The car started fine, light was out, all is good.
The third Monday of each month is Porsche Night at the ACE Cafe in downtown Orlando. For September there were a lot of nice cars there, and the 944 was well represented.
