For years, the Porsche 944 soldiered on as a sports coupe. It wouldn’t be until 1990 that Porsche decided to test the waters with the 944S2 Cabriolet. Sold in limited numbers, the car would offer buyers a cheaper alternative to an open roofed 911. It’s longevity in the market was short, as Porsche unveiled a 944 replacement for 1992 in the form of the 968. Porsche would yet again offer a drop top variant in the new lineup, however. Let’s look at two very nice examples of these rare convertible Porsches, the first a clean 944S2 Cabriolet for sale in Maryland.

It’s unfortunate that Volkswagen has held firm in its refusal to bring the Mk3 Scirocco stateside. They feel the GTI is adequate to fill the sports car gap in the US market, last filled by this car the Corrado, since it’s exit from the US market in 1994. The choice for lower priced sports coupes is a bit slim these days, especially if you’re in the market for a German manufactured one. Go back two decades, however, and you’ll arrive at the end of the Corrado production run, which found the newly introduced VR6 engine slotted under the hood. The Corrado SLC, as it was dubbed, solved many of the teething issues inherent in the G-lader supercharged 1.8 liter engine that preceded it. This Corrado with 112,000 miles on the clock is largely original with records stretching back over a decade.

Being an East Coaster, I look upon car enthusiasts in California with envy. Washington, DC isn’t really a car guy kind of town. There’s a lot of fancy new machinery tooling around the block here, but anyone can go out and buy a new car provided they have the resources. The classics, however, seem scarce. As such, it makes me lust after a modern classic like this BMW 318i Cabriolet even more, just to stand out from the herd. There seems to be a never ending supply of clean, rust-free classics on the left coast and this open-roofed Bimmer fits the description.

Any good enthusiast of foreign cars should have a list of which unicorns they want for each new year of eligible 25-year old import status. This Golf Country reminds me that 2017 will be a big year for me. Just look at it. The first time I saw and found out about the Golf Country I bled from my ears because my brain was spinning so hard. What… The… F? Lifted 4WD Mk2 Golf seemed like the coolest oddball that I’d never heard of. The one comes adorned with awesome Country decals with a ragtop sunroof and has covered just 113k miles. I’m setting an alarm to remind me to set my eBay followed searched to Golf Countrys in three years.
