Buying a 944... need guidance on what to buy

Every car has its "good years" and "bad years". I know these for Jeeps... but know nothing about Porsches. I'm going to buy a 944. Any help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Use: around town usage, partial daily-driver, some track time (autocross, etc.)

$$$: Would like to spend less than $7,000 on the car. But if $7,500 gets me to the "next level", e.g. "S", "Turbo", etc. I could be convinced.

Mechanical Apptitude: Moderate... but not on anything European. Changing a starter in a Jeep is probably simpler than changing a fuse in a Porsche (guess).

I've heard that 1985 1/2 and up is preferred and that the Turbos are worth extra $$$ - that is the extent of my famiarity with the car... beyond driving an 86 and being amazed with the handling and braking.

Again, any guidance would be a huge help - THANKS!
