Yawohl!  But the (944 and ) 951 (turbo 944) is a "whole nother" beastie.  Heads 
are the same as one bank of the 928, and it uses dual counter-rotating balance 
shafts (Mitsubishi patent, alas...).  Unlike the 924, which is *Audi* 
engine/tranny, designed and built in Nekarsulm (*Audi*), the 944 engine/tranny 
is all Porsche.  The later 924S is a 944 without the fender flares (cheaper and 
better Cd, so faster too).

(note two occurances of *Audi* in this response...)
