The 1985 Porsche 944 we featured last month has been relisted at $1,000 more, strangely enough. Still, if there’s some flexibility on the reserve, this could turn out to be a water-cooled bargain.

It doesn’t always take a lot of money to have fun. However, in an era where Volkswagen Mk1 Golfs and GTIs and your garden variety BMW E30s are trending upward, it may seem a bit daunting to maximize your classic car dollar. But there’s always those old standbys, and one that ranks high on my list is the Porsche 944. If you opt for the “basic” version, you can keep the initial outlay reasonable while allowing room for upgrades and repairs. This 944 for sale in Portland, Oregon has well under 100,000 miles on the clock and provides a good baseline for those new to the P-car hobby.

At under $6,000, this 944 is priced right and should move fairly quick. There’s a few cracks in the dashboard and a bit of a patina, but nothing out of the ordinary with the car’s age and mileage. Whether you’re looking for a track day hero or just want a bit of style for the street, this car would fit the bill nicely.
