I bought a 1989 2.7 late last year, that has had a shit load of fixing/bodgery down the years including full sills. I know it's nearly 30 years old but  my 1980 924 had no such structural repairs at an older age. It has a massive service history file and 13 Hartech service stickers under the bonnet. Ulp. It's a bit of a project ( usual old Porsche stuff, -locks, windows, trim etc) and scrubs up well as a 10 yarder but as daily sports car I prefer my 2.8 Z3. I'm not sure if the 944 is staying.

Have a piccy or two

The 944 is still my winner for driving position, I absolutely loved it.

 

Only got rid of it because was was the much slower N/A version and I found something better suited to my tastes (my wedge Supra).

Had a 924 back in about 2003 iirc.

Takes a podium finish on the shittest cars I've ever owned but it was 20 years old then and zero rust, not a smidgen so it must be a 944 'ting???

It really was truly awful though, can't see any entertainment value in one at all unless it's got a nice turbo bolted to it.

Dismal.

My old Man had two Capris, and suspect he would have preferred a 944.

Mrs_l1 has a want for one of these, and only agreed to get the legacy as a compromise as they're now so expensive.

One day, though.

I want one of these.
Somewhere I had a bucket list that proclaimed I would have one before I'm 40.

I'm 39 next week. TICK TOCK TICK TOCK.

Closest I ever got was having a pair of front seats in that trippy material that were meant to go into my Fastback VW but never made it through sheer laziness followed by a destructively stupid ex wife.

I've not had a bike in the back of a 924 or 944 ( in a Corvette yes) but today the Porsche had to step up for collection duties as the estate is still a bit broken after its European adventures earlier this week. Here it is with about five and a half foot of Z3 exhaust in the back. As the rear seats are useless for me they stay down.

Great cars. People seem to think that because they were (mostly) galvanised from new there'll be no rot now. 

 

Here's my '944'.

Used as my daily driver for work for about 3 years, also raced, rallied and generally thrown about like it should be. Not a spot of rust anywhere and only an engine mount needed replacing. Bought for not much, sold for lots when the prices went daft. Still miss that car.

This really is a HUGE job, with some complex fabrication needed. People say XJ40s like mine rust (I do myself), but they're nothing like this!

I didn't realise you were on here. Your write up of the 92forty event at Silverstone was fab. Having said that I can't find it so maybe I imagined it. Thanks anyway!

What a lovely motor, but bugger me, I don't want the bill at the end of that work!

I'm sure it'll be worth it in the end though.

This is costing slightly* more than planned, but it appears to have made the journey from the paint shop,

via an MOT (which it passed) & back to the body shop where they were filling every single cavity with wax this morning.
