strange 944 adv.

This add was in a local car sellin' magazine... My girlfriend spotted the two Porsches and thought I'd be interested. Both are 944's, one is shown as an 84, the other an 86.

On the website they have the years switched around... but they show the black one as a v6 in the paper, and on the website the price is $3,900, with miles "n/a"

The tan one is listed as $4,500 and is called a 76 on the website, 74 in the paper.

Anyway, the v6 caught my eye... Either someone made a typo error somewhere down the line, or someone did a strange swap... Why would you swap a v6 and not shoot for the v8? If you'ge going to do a swap in the first place, it would seem right to go all the way at least.

Why would an established, reputable dealer have a Hotmail email address? I don;t think it's a typo...

It looks like the info on them has been swapped. Anyways, on the website, the tan one has a "3.0 L engine"...maybe it's a v6?

it sounds like the dealership has dangerously little experience with Porsches.

Not today, back away, disco lady
