LS1 Swapped 951: 1987 Porsche 944

This next car comes as a seller submission from TC who describes his Porsche 951 as a “very nice car”. Wait, what is a 951? The 951 is the Porsche internal designation for the turbocharged version of the 944. Porsche took the front-engine transaxle equipped successor to the 924 and boosted it to 220 horsepower…but that doesn’t matter for todays 951, because it has a Chevrolet LS1 V8 borrowed from a Pontiac GTO squeezed into the engine bay.

From the seller:

1987 Porsche 951 ( 944 Turbo) with LS Engine
This is a running proven car. I bought this car (conversion done 10 years ago) two years ago and have not been disappointed in one bit. But I have only driven it maybe 2,000 Miles ( thought I would use it more). I bought a 944S2 Race Car and while I can afford them both, why let one just sit?

Car had a reflector panel between the rear lights. I welded those holes up, but it need to be finished better
