Yeah, its got a 2.0L legacy lump, and a T5 V70, neither particularly fuel efficient.
So obviously a porsche is the answer to all my petrol price woes.
Im seriously considering selling the Foes FXR 4x and the Zigzag and trying to raise another 2k for a really cheap old porsche.
I just got it in to my head i need to own a porsche. Really quite badly.Posted 8 years agoschrickvr6Member
Yeah it's got the VW 1.8l lump, it was originally going to be VW badged but VW pulled out of the joint venture so Porsche released it.
I really fancied one to put my throttle bodied valver lump in but went for a MK1 Polo in the end for some insane power to weight ratio fun. The Audi 5cyl turbo lump is another popular conversion.Posted 8 years ago
I followed one on sat then saw that S2 on top gear last night. Woke up this morning with an over-whelming urge to buy a early 80's 944 S2.
Ive just taken out a loan to finish of the camper van and get it back on the road, which i should really do rather than blowing 3k on a 20 year old porsche.
Can you have a mid life crisis at 27?
Convince me not to. Really. Otherwise im going to end up selling a portion of my foes fleet to buy one…Posted 8 years agojahwombleMember
get one, I've had three and if you get a good one, they are cracking cars foe the money, regardless of the badging, the only problem is that you will have a constant stream of image conscious cockweasels whining " it's not a proper Porsche blah blah blah" well **** 'em. they are probably driving some diesel engined company shopping trolley and listening to coldplay. And consequently, their opinion doesnt count. Tha's my opinion anyway,which probably doesnt count either. so there.Posted 8 years ago
al – when you get it, can I come cruising for babes with Will Smith's summertime on the stereo?
You'd get asked to leave without stopping if you put Will Smith on!out
914 and 941/6's were awesome cars. Unusual styling, I'll agree but fantastic handling and full of character. 914/6's are cheap as chips (although pretty uncommon) to buy and will run circles around a comparable aged 911.
I agree they are cute, but they cost as much to run as a 911 apparently.Posted 8 years agobereavementmonkeySubscriber
I did that when i was 28 actually and bought a 924 lux in champagne… yes you may argue that it was really just a cross between a renault fuego and lada estate.
This was the worst purchase I ever made… in fact it made the 1989 mark 3 supra look like bloody Knightrider….
Now I have just spent 2.5k on whitelightning (or 2.8td Mitsubishi Delica Offroad Adventurer) With big ass tyres and room for ALL the bikes and kit.
That is what you should do.
Or not…. your choice obviously.Posted 8 years agosmiffyMember
lots of guessing, here.
the 24 had the AUDI 100 2.0 engine, the blown version was the same engine. The 44 has many more Porsche bits than the 24, which is a parts-bin potch of 1302S, Type 3, AUDI 100 and Golf bits. You need a mate with with the microfiches so you can spot the VAG bits if you are not familiar with them. agree with above, the Quattro motor suits the 24 beautifully, even the plain 2.2 5cyl is a step up in torque and sounds better than stock.
What would we consider an "early" 12, since they were made for such a short time? (I do like 912s, though).Posted 8 years ago
my rationale was/is this
Need to transport bikes and stuff and go to races (a lot in the summer)Posted 8 years ago
need something that can get dirty and is efficient and plenty of space
== a van
don't want to drive a van all day every day
would like something smaller, less efiicient and more, well, fun
== a 911 GT3.
My wife strangely agrees. So the WRX is now officially the company car (for my business so the boys are now fighting over it) and i am on the hunt for a van !
Your logic defies science, your wife must be the Balanese Goddess of Plenty and…………..does she have a sister?
I SALUTE YOU SIR! 😆
My usual foray into stealthy bike/car purchase territory with Mrs.T is a simple one – buy all the same colour and failing that escape through tunnel Harry and hope the Resistance picks me up…..Posted 8 years ago
I know, incredible although for a bird she is quite logical (she is an engineer after all). This is the woman that bought me a cheaper Ti wedding ring …. and a Fenn surfski – her logic being i would prefer that to a more expensive platinum ring. splendid, hence i married her…Posted 8 years ago
