Middle Class Porsche

November 29, 2013

If you’re middle class and middle aged and have a lot of financial obligations then here’s a chance to own a classic for not a lot of money.

The Porsche 944 never enjoyed the success like its big brother the Porsche 911. The 2.5L 4-cylinder engine produced a meager 150 hp which means it was never a fast car. It wasn’t much of a driver’s car either with performance being on par with that of a Volkswagen.

But all that doesn’t matter because it’s still a Porsche.

Body in Good Condition

Here’s a chance to own your very own sports car for the same amount of money as a car down payment. It’s a 1983 Porsche 944 for only $4000 and it’s currently for sale on Craigslist.

So why would you want to buy a dirt cheap 1983 Porsche 944? The same reason people buy base model BMW 3-Series sedans. It’s all about the prestige. You can finally say “Porsche? Yes, I’ve owned one of those before”.

For a car that’s 30 years old I’d say this thing looks to be in pretty good condition.
