Average Age of 944 Owner

So whats the average age of a 944 owner you ask. Just fill in the appropiate age group your in (no lying now) and by the end of the week we will get a rough number.

I bought my 944 at 17, and am currently barely 18 years old. What about you?

To make the options more clear, you might want to change them to something like:

Under 20
20 to 29
30 to 39
... etc.

Do you post on Rennlist as well or am I confusing you with someone else?

If I remember math correctly (don't quote me on this).... the average now stand between the 31-40 age group.

Its always been my opinion that older Porsche's were favored by younger generations due to the lower costs. Frankly, if I could afford a new 911 I would be the first one in line but for the time being a 944 works well enough. That's not to say I don't enjoy the 944, it was ahead of its time and to this day well styled and fun to drive.

If you were given 100 grand to spend on any Porsche of your choice, would a 944 really be on top of your wish list?
