1983 Porsche 944 with 52k miles

Not a day goes by that I don’t consider selling my 2006 MINI Cooper S for a clean, lower mileage Porsche 944. It probably wouldn’t be the wisest financial decision I ever made, but every time I see one of these coupes from the 1980s with their wide fenders, funky wheels and pop-up headlamps I get the urge to pull the trigger. This 1983 944 for sale in Massachusetts is equipped with the base 2.5 liter engine, 5-speed manual and has just over 50,000 miles on the clock. Is there honestly a better way to relive your 1980s automotive fantasies for under $10,000?

White is a popular color at the moment, so this 944 should grab a lot of attention in that respect. The brown interior lets it down a bit, but it’s par for the course for the period. The phone dial wheels are a nice upgrade, as I preferred them over the cookie cutter rims we see pictured that come with the car. It’s nice that the seller isn’t trying to be cheap and sell the rims that are currently on the car separately, as many ads that we’ve come across try and do.

  1. Looks like it has optional sport seats. Those are very desireable and worth a pretty penny.

  2. The interior is for driving jennifer jason leigh to the baseball dugout.

  3. In the 80’s I got one just like this one as a graduation present. I still remember the awesome handling and the heavy feeling it had when accelerating. The pop out roof was also a great option, but today, the car is way to underpowered to have any fun with it. If I were in the market for a 944, definitely the Turbo would be the model of choice – even today.

  4. a nice set of FUCHS and Flock of Seagulls playing on the radio…ahhh the 80’s
    my uncle had one of the first here..took Euro delivery…Guards Red…handled like a go cart…
    but like Audmars said…woefully under powered even by the standards of the 80’s…
    the Turbo TurboS are the 951’s to have…..
