- cruise control intermittent (might be able to fix before sale, have replacement that might work)

That's all of the redeeming and negative qualities I can think of, I'll add more if I think of anything.

I purchased the car with the intent to turn into a racecar but it was too nice of a specimen and I couldn't bear to strip it. I now have another 944 built race car so I don't need this one anymore and could use the money for race tires.
I've been daily driving this car every day since January (except in the snow) and its been a problem free, very fun, nimble, great gas mileage (~27mpg), and reliable commuter.
The previous owner was a Porsche mechanic that got the car as a wedding present. He never drove the car so it sat , rarely driven, in his backyard for years and that's where the paint problems and lack of mileage came from.

Asking $2,800 obo

Until I get some better pictures, please mind the tow bar, I was towing the car home before I got it insured
