1984 Porsche 944Review
Ray writes:

Amazing — I own the non turbo version so the acceleration is not what it could be. The car is the best handling automobile that I 've had the pleasure of laying my hands on. The trans is in the back to make for an almost perfect 50-50 weight distribution. One problem, which I knew before I bought the car, is all the little things that go wrong with it. Just make sure to keep it well kept or your going to blow a waterpump/timing belt and have to rebuild your engine.

Pros: The looks I get on the street

Cons: Little stuff breaking down

An Automatic 944 — My cheap find - I bought the car for $350 (and it RAN FINE) :)

Pros: Handled like a dream.  Was probably the most solid car I've ever owned.  Engine needed little to no work and maintenance was almost non-existant.

Cons: Was falling apart a bit on the inside.  But I loved it all the same.

Money Guzzler At 20 Years Old — Drives Awesome, powerful engine even after 20 years of service. Big electrical headaches ... but still a Porsche that is great to smile at in the morning!!

Pros: 50-50 weight distribution and great handling. Lots of fan clubs and sources for upgrades and spare parts. The perfect fixer upper project.

Cons: Can be costly if you want everything to work right, 4 cylinders is shy in power relative to the 928 beast.

50/50 Whieght Distrubution — handled great, interior was luxurious, faster then most 4 and some 6 cylinders. wasn't the best looking car but also wasn't the ugliest either. i liked this car because it was comfortable to drive, both in seating and ride quality, and it saved gas compared with an 8 cylinder.

Pros: handling was superb

Cons: not that quick

My 944 — She is brilliant to drive smooth, fast and really like to be pushed. There are some big faults like the driving position and steering wheel position. However when things do go wrong you need lots of money to fix her.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: The joy of driving her

Cons: Cost of parts
