Look for a $5k car and then you will have a repair fund. Nearly every 944 needs at least $1k spent on right now, before you drive it.

Looking at your budget, I think that a 951 is out of range.

Soemthing like a 86-89 944 would work. Look for service records, recent clutch replacement ($1500), timing belts and water pump ($1000 and up), suspension ($$$$$) and general condition. Junk 944s will always be that. Make sure you have the time, tools and space to work on the 944 or plan for regular maintenance and repairs. These are now old cars and soem Porsche specialist shops are beginning to not work on them unless they are in good conditon....
