The 89's - early 91's are less desirable than the late 91's -94's as the early ones didn't have head gaskets.

Good sources of info are...

Generally, a Porsche that old NEEDS to have more miles unless its recently been resealed. Too few miles means no distibution of fluids =s rotted seals =s lots of leaks. but, ah, you knew that. You can however, buy my '92 C2 Cab w/ 144k miles :)

My 74 914 only has 103k on it, does not leak a drop and runs like a swiss watch. And, that is really unbelievable since it has a VW motor which were known to leak even before you put oil in them.
