PCA Hurricane Region Member Steve Bastian has loved Porsches since the 1980s, and instead of pouring his automotive passion into just air-cooled or rear-engined cars (he has those, too), his pride and joy is a highly modified 1989 944 Turbo that he lovingly refers to as a "944 RS." We saw it at PCA's Werks Reunion Amelia Island this year, and when we learned Bastian and the previous owner had more than $200,000 invested in it, we had to find out more.

Bastian's 944 Turbo is a far cry from how it rolled off the factory line, with the inline four bored out to 2.7 liters and 400+ horsepower plus braking and suspension upgrades to match. The exterior color is a custom formulation based off of Porsche Fashion Gray, and the interior has been spared no expense.
