Swap Auto Trans into 944

Before you blow me up with, why would you do that you idiot... I want to get my son a 944, but he has some special needs where he will need an Auto Trans...

I have been looking around for a decent car at a decent price, but the Auto trans is hard to come by. The pool of Manual cars is much bigger. It would also be a good experience for him to do this.

Anyone have any articles or experience. I see plenty of articles on going to a manual.

Thanks for any help.

I'm in Sacramento area if anyone knows of any decent for sale under $5000.

What is it about the 944 that makes you want to get him that particular car?

We like that the 944 is a 4 banger for insurance reasons. We are already a Porsche family. I've had a 77 911s Targa for over 20 years. We both like the looks and he's a good kid, so...

Thanks for the offer of the $200, but I don't have that much time to do that much restoration.

this one is fairly local to me (30 mins?) and i could check it out if you were interested.
i have been a 944 mechanic since 2008 working on Pelican Parts/Rennlist users' cars and know them back to front...i could do any needed maintenance for you for a good price if you were interested...maybe i could drive it to you

If you want a automatic sports car, go find a fiero, or camero, less fuss less muss, I had a bad ass 87 fiero gt fastback, I regret sellin' it, but no issues. Good luck out there Hoss.
