1987 Porsche 944

Alright, it’s time to go shopping in the bargain-Porsche aisle. In a world where poor-condition 911s can command five-figure price tags and pristine examples well into the six figures, the 944 remains the everyman’s Porsche. Sure, one will never be as exciting as a 911 Turbo, but the combination of a manual transmission and rear-wheel drive always provides a recipe for fun. So, if you’re looking to get into a Porsche for the first time, or perhaps you just want a good car for track days without having to worry about writing it off, then an entry-level 944 makes a great option. The example featured here is a 1987 Porsche 944 Coupe, located in Texas, that looks fantastic in its Burgundy paint.

First things first: the mileage as listed in the main ad is incorrect. As the seller states in answer to one of the questions at the bottom of the page, the mileage is 89K not 8,909. That’s a bit of a difference and it certainly makes us wonder what else may be incorrect in the listing. Some interior pictures would also be nice. But bargain shopping never comes without a few questions and the overall appearance of this car leads me to think that the mileage listing was a simple error and that the car should be in good shape. What this all means though is that bidding has been slow (it currently sits at $3,350) and if this 944 could be had for $6K or so then I think someone could be making out with a pretty good deal.

    I like the color on this a lot, but you must accept that driving a maroon car in Texas will make people assume you’re an Aggie fan through and through.

    And I ain’t no Aggie nor Longhorn, either, thank you very much. Ole Miss alum, here.

    944 badge is on the wrong side of the car; likely it’s had paintwork. Worth checking out for anyone serious in the car. 87 also saw the introduction of ABS, which is why the offset on the front wheels doesn’t look quite right. Honestly, 6K is probably all the money even if it’s 100%; a touch more and you can find a clean 16V S or 88 2.7 that are better choices for enthusiasts in many ways!

    Or, for a few more bucks, a Turbo. Such is the plight of the normal 944 2.5 and 924S.
