944 — The car is fast. Parts are expensive. But there is not much that needs to be done. Overall ride for a sports car is phenomenal. I get about 28 to 30 miles per gallon. She sticks to the road like a true sports touring car!

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

Pros: Performance and comfort.

Cons: Price of parts

Porsche 944 — I love everything about this car - from the sound of the engine to the pop up lights. It handles excellent along the lanes. Love the fact that it's a real engine so I can pop the bonnet and actually work on it. Cheapest car i've ever had for running costs. This car is real fun to drive - reminds you what driving is really about!

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

Pros: the whole car and driving experience

Loved It And Miss It — I believe the 944 has timeless styling and impeccable handling. I would have another anytime, but might want a 944S or Turbo for more power. Style great interior and fun for the money. It was a great front engine Porsche even if it did start life as a 924 built for VW

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Handling

Cons: none

Porsche 944 — Well it is just a Volkswagen with a Porsche badge on it...but the engine, and looks of the car cant be matched by any cars in its time. 2.5liter GT motor plant gives a great push on those big rear wheel and makes for lots of fun.

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

Pros: Great looks for the age of the car

Cons: Small space for your legs to the seat

1985 Porsche 944 — With minor mods its a rocket, handels amazing and turns heads! The main performance upgrade is the mass air flow upgrade, its the best $1,000 you could spend. Second get a 951 head to add about 35hp, and a performance chip, then the car is a rocket. Its the most powerful 4 cylinder I have ever driven. The average fuel economy is around 30mpg. Upgrades and maintaining the car is very costly..... Its a Porsche! Timeing belt has to be checked every 15,000 miles and changed every 45,000 miles. BUY ONE YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!

Pros: Great Reliable car

Cons: Expensive to maintain
