Posted: 944 Buyer's Guide - 911 & Porsche World magazine

I found this 944 Ultimate Buyer's Guide online, someone has scanned it in. Thought I'd share it with everyone.

pretty cool !!! They even made a mistake calling the 3.0L motor a turbocharged version, from what I understand Porsche made the decision not to use the turbo motor in the cabrio because it was not solid enough...I agree with that decision.

This article is taken from a British magazine, which is a great read if you can find it in the states. Quite a few of the "facts" are based on the British market, which of course is different than the US market offerings. In Britain & Europe), Porsche did sell the 968 CS - a turbo version of the 3.0l 968.

The 968CS was NOT a turbocharged car. It was a lightened version of the 968 coupe with better suspension and brakes.

There WAS a 968 Turbo S and a 968 Turbo RS, but very, very small numbers of these cars were produced.

CJ, it scrolls like Adobe Reader. Grab with the mouse and scroll. I found a couple of other interesting similar articles as well.

From what I know the 968CS was very popular in Britain, as it was priced cheaper than the standard 968 and had better performance and R&H. These brits... they love the crappy, bare-bone Lotus Elise, so a 968 CS must be a huge joy to them hahah!!

I've been lucky enough to have seen a 968 Turbo S in my life, it's the most gorgeous thing ever!! Honestly, I would even consider a 968 Turbo S over a 997 GT3 anyday, due to it's rarity!!

Sorry CJ, my mistake!

There's buyer's guides for 968 and 924 CGT too on the same site!

I know back issues can be ordered from http://www.911porscheworld.com/
