Think I might buy

A late 80's/early 90's 944 ( perhaps a turbo ? ) ...

In general, what do you think of that idea ??

I'll never sell scooby, she's staying for life, not kidding, the keys to her will be prized from my cold dead hands ... I would like something a bit different for the weekends though, 911's are out the window for the minute, they are just too expensive to buy in the first place ... plus shows a distinct lack of imagination ...

Best case scenario I get something like :

1990 PORSCHE 944 Turbo FH 2dr 2+2 Coupe

Worst case something less power, but a porsche none the less ...

Re: Think I might buy

oh, I did not know that ...

well taking into consideration that, it'll be a 20 year old car, it's bound to break a bit, also take into consideration it wouldn't b a daily driver, infact it might not even get driven every week ( after the initial excitement of owning a porsche ) .... I mean scooby is nearly 16 now, she breaks a bit too, I don't really think that's enough of a reason not to own one, do you ?? I mean really ?? it's a porsche ??

I have to go out, but would love to hear more, I don't know about them, and get easily excited when I see a powerful motor that in theory I can afford to own, so bring me down to earth already ...
