- I want to buy a 944
Buy it with your eyes open. Get someone who knows the cars (nots just cars, but specifically Porsches) to pre-inspect it. They're cheaper than 911s of the same age (because they aren't as desirable) but people can use that to hide some right howlers.
And accept that it will be when it goes wrong (not if) and when it breaks down (not if). And that it will be more expensive than bog-standard cars when it does go wrong.
Still a Porsche though 😀Posted 8 years agosmiffyMember
I can't believe anyone is actually that interested in a 912. Do you guys actually know what they are? I can see no good reason to own one over an early 911. Slower, about as expensive to run and "not a 911".
I know exactly what it is, basically a low-spec narrow bodied 911 with the 4 cylinder from the 356, about 100hp. not a lot slower due to lighter weight and actually has better weight distribution due to the shorter engine. The plain unfussy finish and steel wheels give it a nice retro look, it appears older than it is due to older 356 and VW bits here and there. If you're not determined to keep it 100% original there's plenty of options for grunty boxers around these days. I like them.Posted 8 years ago
