In the latest installation of its short film, Doublemint,  Aimé Leon Dore has revealed another collaboration with Porsche, this time featuring the 1986 944, the brand’s front-engined, rear-wheel drive coupé that was in production from the early 80s to 1991.

The film starts with a recap of the first part, where Action Bronson slides a Porsche key and what’s assumed to be an address written on a napkin, across a diner table. As the camera moves outside, the Guards Red Porsche 944 is revealed from under a car cover, its license plate changed and ultimately ends up being driven to a private air hanger.

While details are scarce, we do know, thanks to a plain-clothed cop in one scene, that the model is an ‘86 Turbo with a “dookie” brown leather interior. With the vehicle being rebadged to feature “Leon Dore” badging and ALD bespoke decals, it’s a mystery how the officer knew the model, however, it does indicate that the vehicle features a 5-speed, 2.5L Turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, boasting 217 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque, if stock.

Notably,  the 944 represents a departure from the 911’s rear-engine configuration and was designed to compete against other coupés of the era, like the Mazda RX-7 FC and the Nissan 300ZX. Other details we noticed from the video included stand-out gold 5-hole wheels, which match the bespoke decals and embossed seats that feature custom ALD branding.
