i think you would be better off trying to find a 951 for that kind of money.but, if a 944s is your bag, go for it. the price seems high but the mileage is very low and they are fairly rare, especially with that kind of mileage.

If you could talk them down to 9 I would say do it. But I have to agree with Carter. Get a 951!

well you would never be able to get a 951 with that kind of mileage and maintained that well for that kinda money

are there any specialties about the "S"??any like hard to find parts and whatnot or are the parts the same as a 944na??

Thumbs down

IMO opinion there is nothing really special about S's except for the fragile head and low gearing. That price is way to high unless you are planning on collecting the car.

Cool

I think you should look for a 944 Turbo if you want to pay $10,000 for a 944. But that whats the 87 944 worth with the miles.

OK, sure the price may be a bit high... the mileage is good, the major service points are covered and by the choice of rubber, it appears that the owner was aware on top of things... I say, if this feels like the car you want, go for it.

Others may give you the go turbo nudge, esp considering the price of this one. On the other hand, you are looking at a low volume, less abused example of a still very powerful car. It's still quicker than those of us with older na's, you get to be part of the exclusive "S" car thing and if it's not what you want after a few months, you can still get into a turbo...


Go for it... but don't forget, do the right thing and get a the ppi
