I had a late 85 944. I had a similar problem with a really rough idle. Under the hood where the throttle cable connects to the throttle body, there is a microswitch that will quietly click when the throttle is closed.(you can hear it when the car is off and you move the throttle plate by hand. This activates the idle circuit. Mine was dirty and was not closing, so the car would die. Take out the throttle body and clean the inside to make sure the microswitch is clicking. Hopefully that helps.
Check your air filter sounds like it is starved for air possibly
