$4450 in 1999 for my first 944. It was absolutely pristine & near concours. Bought it from an old lady who really didn't know what she had, IMHO. It needed nothing and I drove it on countless road trips.

Totalled it exactly one year from the day I bought it.

$450 for a running 924S with the clutch pulled.

It had a $600 Sach's clutch in the passenger footwell.

Could have been a DD -- but it was bought to be our LeMons and is now
our primary ChumpsCar.

Spent way too much money on it -- but not related to making it a driver.

Ironically the second 944 we bought was for $460 -- just to make sure we
had spare parts for our first race. Bought a third and second parts car for $350.

The lowest I've paid was $4,250. That is purchase price + air conditioning hose. Car was totaled by a pick up slamming into the right rear quarter, got $4,850. Lowest I've "paid" is thus -$600.00

Least expensive to buy, was taking over ownership of a car that had been run without oil for the price of its towing and back storage fees. I don't want to add up what that car has cost.

picked up my 83 from the original owner 3 yrs ago with 186 K on the motor. Been parked for about 6 months. put a new battery in it, gave him 300 bucks (matched the cost to donate the car and get a tax write off) and drove it from Stanford University all the way back to San Diego. (before i new anything about timing belts). been using it as a daily driver ever since just performing routine maint. did do the belts and water pump for good measure

I bought a parts car for $300, but the dude I bought it from never came to my house to collect. So I guess the cheapest I've paid was $0. I'm guessing maybe he's calling it even for the air compressor he borrowed from me and blew up, but I don't really know.

$3,900.00 for an 84 NA, put less than $3,000.00 into repairs, maintenance and she's wonderful now! I'm also looking at a non-running 84 (sitting for years) this weekend and am negotiating for about $300.00. This new car will become my donor; do I really have to start collecting these cars?

Sheesh, maybe I should jump on the bandwagon and buy a $500 parts car just for kicks and giggles.

I paid about US$32000 for mine. I was able to drive it home. It was serviced to the book by a Porsche dealer. When the car was 3 years old the Porsche dealer told my wife it needed about $2000 of work doing to pass its first annual inspection. I told the dealer to put the wheels back on and I drove it away-none of those parts have been replaced yet. But if they were so knowledgeable why didn't they tell me then that the engine would need replacing in 2012.?

I think you should. The more folks that do that the supply and demand equation might tilt in my favor so I won't be upside down in mine.

I paid a lot for my NA, $6,000! But, it had only 38,000 genuine miles and it looked like it had just been driven out if the showroom. I have used it as a summer DD for 2 years and only had to replace the ac compressor for about $500 so far.

Love driving it best money I have ever spent on a vehicle.

I bought my 87 n/a last June for $3000, a few months later, I sold it for $4000. I repainted and polished the enginge and the interior looked fantastic. the guy I sold it to repainted the body then a few months later, lost his oil pressure. He was affraid to put more money into it so I bought it back for $2000 last weekend. After about 4 hours of working on it and realizing his main pulley was loose and wasn't engaing the oil pump, I have it back on the road with $0 out of pocket. All it cost me was a little homework, mostly from all of you, and some time.

My 924S, I inherited. Probably put about 1000 into it since I've had it, only had to do belts struts and new clutch hydaulics.
My 83 I payed 2000 for it drove it home and it didn't start again for 4 months, after about 1000 dollars got it running, sold it put a clutch in it for the new owner, who wrecked it and gave it back
My 951 I like to think I got a decent deal on, I paid 4000 for it with all the history from when it was new, has a few upgrades, needed a good buff and detail. And I've been daily driving it for about 4 months, rain snow and shine. And I love it. I will say for home much I've spent in parts I've easily spent twice that in tools. Gotta havem. Good tools are the best investment any one with a budget can make.

GAW, My intention is to completely part the car, inventory it bag, label and place it in my basement. Parts that will have no use to me or are completely worn/destroyed will find themselves at the local dump's recycling pile. At least this is what I'm planning... Every day brings on a new perspective. I'm actually heading out in a few minutes to the New England Car Show; I hope my wife and I don't come home with something new.

You know that's actually a good idea... I have an extra garage and an attic. I could get some good experience disassembling the car but not having to lose my DD in the process.

Running with no issues for $1500.

Late last year, the t-belt went, so maybe not "no" issues. I've still got less than 2500 in it with new wheels and tires, plus timing belt tools. Did all of the work myself.

I've had it almost a year, now. It wasn't running for about 4 of those months while I rebuilt the head. Aside from that, it was a daily driver.

Bought mine new in Aug 1983. Very hard car to buy at the time. Waiting list over 6 months. Dealers were getting above sticker price. I was fortunate to have a connection and just paid the sticker price.
