Explanation of 85.5 year of make:
In mid-1985 the 944 underwent its first significant changes compared to ’83 – ’85 models. These included :- a new dash and door panels, embedded radio antenna, upgraded alternator (from 90 amp to 115 amp), increased oil sump capacity, new front and rear cast alloy control arms and semi-trailing arms, larger fuel tank, optional heated and powered seats, Porsche HiFi sound system, and revisions in the mounting of the transaxle to reduce noise and vibration. The “cookie cutter” style wheels used in the early 944s were upgraded to new “phone dial” style wheels. 1985 model year cars incorporating these changes are sometimes referred to as “1985B” or “1985 1/2″ cars.”
