This car is my favorite porsche. It is a true time capsule! These cars are for sale at as low as $2,000 for a nice one! If you are looking for a reliable daily driver porsche, get a 944!

As an affordable entry into owning a Porsche this has been a great car.Parts are pretty affordable ,a little tricky to work on.but basic stuff like brakes and oil change no problem ,if your set up.I am at 145,00 miles now , after nearly 80,000 of ownership.No real failures at all.Replaced timing belt twice as needed and replaced the water pump once.Brakes are really good , replaced pads & rotors awhile back , pad life more than reasonable.A good first , modern Porsche.
