My 4th Car — With a little regret I px`d my lovely Rover 800 for this Porsche 944. I had always dreamed of owning a Porsche, and the 944 was a quality entry level car. She was in good condition when I bought her, just some oxidisation on the roof and bonnet, which I got resprayed, I purchased a heater unit from Porsche, and replaced one of the fuel pipes, that`s all in four years. Due to an accident I could not use the car for around a year, and she waited patiently for me in the garage. When I eventually was okay to drive her, she stared first time. There was real sadness when I let her go.

Fast Understatement Porsche — It's a black beauty with a very powerful engine. Has a very good stability on the road. Is very fast i can hold a porsche cayenne V 8 and a cayman s with the 3.4 engine. Like other porsche's it is not cheap to hold! And I have a friend since i drive my 944: the man at the gas station :-)

Porsche 944 Turbo W/stage 3 Kit — This car was modified by a racing pit crew. It had a stage three kit that gave it about 75 more horse power that a regular 944 turbo. The kit includes upgrades to the clutch, air intake, suspension, exhaust and a computer chip...it had about 360 horse power and had been driven over 200 miles per hour.

Fast — Performance - Very good ( ~330WHP) What you expect from a Porsche Build Quality - Good (Audi factory) Appearance - Very good design (allmost timeless) Cost of Ownership - Not great . average 10L/100km Fun factor - On race track great drive . But turbo lag is noticable .

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Don't Buy New Parts, Scrap Yards And Mechanic Friends Are The Way To Go — Well its engine isn't in yet, so its kinda slow (doesn't move) and it needs some body work still. This will be on par with almost any production car, including the new GT3 RS. It will however be hopeless for casual driving off the track.
