Fresh Powder: 1987 Porsche 944S

I've been a serious skeptic of craigslist adverts for as long as I can remember, but craigslist started charging $5 to list a car, which isn't a ton of money, but certainly weeds out the scammers who post a million underpriced cars each day AND the idiots who post their car for some obscene price and hope to find a sucker who doesn't understand the marketplace.  A year ago I would have assumed this listing came from a scammer, but I doubt a scammer would pay $5 to list a car and this thing is probably legit...legitimately sweet.  Find this 1987 Porsche 944S offered for $5900 in Liberty Hill, TX via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

From the seller:

1987 porsche 944s
condition: good
cylinders: 4 cylinders
drive: rwd
fuel: gas
odometer: 136000
title status: clean
transmission: manual
This a mostly original Texas Rust Free 1987 Porsche 944S

Powered by a 2.5-liter Dual Overhead Cam 16-valve in line-four sending power to the rear wheels via a rear mounted 5-speed manual transaxle. The car was sold new in Dallas, TX and resided in the area since. 136k miles but this car could be daily driven. All functions work properly, A/C blows ice cold. Updated wheels with nice tires, original paint as far as i can tell. There are a few spots that have been touched up, and a few minor dents along the rocker panel. This 944 S is offered with a factory removable roof panel.
A clean Carfax and Texas title. $5900

  1. Yeah... that looks more like screaming deal than scammer. Scammers seemed to be working the sub-$4000 range more often than venturing that high in pricing.
