2200 Miles Per Year: 1984 Porsche 944

As the prices for classic 911s, 912s, and 914s appreciate into the stratosphere of wealth that is ruled trust funders and dot-com boomers, I can't but help search for affordable cars with the famed Porsche cock & sausage crest.  Boxsters and Caymans are still plunging into the depths of affordability...but there is a Porsche that starts with a 9 that you shouldn't say nein to. Find this 1984 Porsche 944 offered for $9000 in Houston, TX via craigslist. Tip from Jeff.

  1. You had me at cock & sausage... :D

    Two original keys AND the two for the glove box as well?? That's something you don't read every day. This one pulls off the old school color combo very well to boot.

  2. My dad had a black one exactly like this, same year even.. it was awesome!

  3. Having owned (and loved) a 944, I can honestly say I haven't seen any looking this good, this old, for this low a price.

    Great car.

    Prolly needs a new timing belt, if it hasn't been replaced in the past 3-4 years.

    And worth finding a used windshield wiper motor (they wear out). 20 years ago, new ones cost $400! I remember thinking I could've bought a Japanese small block for about the same price.

    Would'a been hard to fit under the wipers tho'...

    1. Based on the number of receipts shown, maybe one of those is for a timing belt. I know the area where the car is shown to be. BIG and expensive homes so I'm willing to bet the owner has the coin to keep it top notch. I've never owned a 944, but this one looks like the one to get.

    2. Yeah...Raveneaux CC isn’t too dusty a place. I hope this one goes to a good home with someone who will actually drive the thing.

  4. When I was 19 I sold my 1970 396 SS Chevelle to buy an 944. It was a great car. I can't remember the aftermarket parts place in Long Beach where I ordered a louvered rear valance and a new throttle response cam. They would have a pretty fun yearly Porsche gathering.
    I am sure almost everyone that has owned a 944 has had to replace the leather shift boot that integrated up onto the knob.
    I thought it was an awesome car until I drove my friends turbo.

    I really like how clean the above one is. Great interior.

    1. I had a 1969 Chevelle SS (396 as well) when I was 18/19 years old. Loved the car, but it was a 4-speed with 4.11 rear gear.... *HORRENDOUS* gas mileage, but it sure would jump off the line.

    2. Haha cool! Mine was a 4 speed rockcrusher w/ 411 as well.

    3. I think the Porsche place was called Tweeks??? Any old P car guys here?
