There’s no easy way to slice it; Porsches are expensive cars to own. Without a doubt the best way to get into a Porsche is to buy one that someone has already gone through and fixed, and even though 944s are some of the cheapest Porsches to own the same holds true for them. While most enthusiasts really lust after a well documented and maintained Turbo or late S2, buying into that market is going to set up back well over $10,000 – for some, out of their budget for an occasional car. How about the rest of the 944 line then? Well, if the early 944’s performance is a little too pedestrian for you, a simple solution is to look for one of the rare 1987 or 1988 944S models. With a 16 valve development of the already torquey 2.5 liter inline-4, drivers got the best of both worlds in a model that bridged well the gap in between the stock 944 and the gutsy turbo model. Today’s example is presented in classic Guards Red over tan:
Engine: 2.5 liter inline-4
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 89,113 mi

The car carries a branded title for minor damage, which may explain in some part why the original side trim and ”
16 Ventiler” badges appear to be gone. However, outside of that, the car has gone through a major mechanical restoration including all of the hard and expensive bits on the 944 – notably, the clutch has been replaced and the engine refreshed. Anyone who has owned a 944 will tell you that neither of these services are cheap or easy, making the $15,000 worth of recent mechanical bills believable. Additionally, the car has new tires and suspension pieces, all of which should make this car a near-perfect driver candidate. The work appears to have been performed at the Ruf Auto Center, a notable enthusiast dealer. At $8,500 Buy It Now, if you’re not terribly concerned with having a branded title due to accident or mileage issues and do some diligence in making sure the pretty exterior isn’t covering up some serious demons, this might just be a stellar deal!
