With evangelists like the folks at flüssig magazine, the front-engined, water-cooled Porsches are finally getting the respect they deserve. Long living in the shadow of the car they were supposed to supersede, the 911, these sports cars have now become collectable in their own right, praised for their performance and practicality. Today we’ll take a look at four examples of the breed, all dressed in black and ready for some action. We’ll start with this very clean 944 Turbo for sale in Los Angeles.
For years there was continuing rumors that Porsche would finally produce a four-door saloon, but it wasn’t until 2009 that the Panamera would appear on the scene. No matter how good of a drive the Porsche Panamera is, I just can’t get by the aesthetics. It’s certainly not the ugliest car ever produced, but it just has an awkward presence that puts its grand touring predecessor, the 928, in a good light. Futuristic for its time, the car has aged gracefully and late model examples such as this 928GTS have begun to appreciate considerably. This 928GTS for sale in Ontario, Canada has a reasonable 66,000 miles on the clock and the more common 4-speed automatic gearbox.
