<8000 mile 944. Should be interesting..... https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1986-porsche-944-29/ .
Beauty. My 924S would have been faster though and $10,000 less expensive. Yeah...I still think about that one all the time.
The water cooled Porsches bottomed out 4-5 years ago. Nice, low mile, desirable models have been climbing ever since, and should continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
There was a model update for the 86 (?) model year so you’ll see them referes to as “pre-85 1/2” or post. $12-$15K is a pretty good price for a S2 turbo. You’ll see them as high as $25 for really low mile, 030 cars (sport suspension package)
There will be $7500-$10K money pits and Run-Don’t-Walk Away $3500-$7500 cars for a few years now.
I have a 968 “last of the line” and many consider the transaxle Porsches to be the best handling cars they’ve ever made.
Wow. As many barks and cackles as my Duc.
A nice car, no doubt. But no mention of a maintenance history. God forbid they’re driving around on a 33 year old timing belt on “Special Occasions.”
"The seller reports that service in November 2017 included replacing the timing belt, coolant pump, and ignition system."
Damn. It’s early. I read it twice.
Change that to a VW 4 speed and that’s been me for the last two nights.
Came across this little beauty in Dinosaur, CO this afternoon - part of group of 356s heading to Flagstaff.
In Dinosaur ................... wow ! I’ll bet that was a spectacle for the handful of residents !

That picture more represents a Porsche than a Volkswagen.
A VW throttle has 4 components:
When I was working on my 912, I counted 128 parts to the accelerator. The friggin adjusters have adjusters.
what year is that? lol good thing it wasnt posted on the VW thread. had a throttle cable break @ the carb end on an old bug once and tied some string to it and drove it home by pulling the string through the sun roof!
buddy had one break on a moto @ the handle bar tube on the trail and we rigged it up to the front brake lever to get home. it actually seemed natural once you got used to it.
Sill at $13,500. I'm curious as to how high it'll go.
IME not much happens on BaT until the last 24 hours, especially the last 6.
LOL. My buddy and I had one break at the pedal on his about 10 miles up Potash Rd in Moab.
Pulled the cable out, ran it around through the wing window, and drove home. He could loop the cable around the latch for the wing for “cruise control.”
We later totaled that one when he tried to dodge a rock I threw at a squirrel and ran off the road and sideswiped a rock outcropping. . A nice ‘61.
The disassembled '71 911S ad "has been deleted by it's author" which probably means he either sold it or got tired of being hassled : )
Hopefully he sold it to someone with the wherewithal to finish it. Not someone who’s going to let it sit for 20 more years.
