The Porsche 944. For years looked down upon air-cooled purists as the Porsche for those of lesser means, these well balanced hatchbacks have become the darling of the track day set and have been lauded for their merits as a machine that purists can enjoy on a relative budget. While the 924 from which it was derived gets chided on occasion for being slow, you won’t run into that issue with a car like this ’86 944 Turbo for sale in California.

The 944s have been accessible to enthusiasts on a budget for quite some time now. Only recently have we seen some later models and Turbo S variants bringing strong money. An early Turbo such as this with similar mileage can usually fetch in the $12,000 to $15,000 range. Not a lot of money for a lot of style and what has been deemed one of the best handling cars in recent memory.
