In many ways the 944 was a landmark car for Porsche, demonstrating as it did that a successful sporting model could emerge from the legendary 911's shadow and be respected in its own right. Although the front-engined four-cylinder format terminated with the subsequent 968 series, the 944 paved the way for smaller Porsches such as the Boxster. Following on from the unloved 924 model, this was quite some achievement, and gives some indication as to the 944's merit. Between 1983 and 1991 the Porsche 944 was the benchmark sub-supercar coupe, and with used models becoming increasingly tempting, here's a guide to show you the best way to put a Porsche on your driveway for the price of a Punto.
You'll may well wade through plenty of rubbish looking for a decent 944, but there's no shortage of choice and this ups the odds of chancing upon a genuine car. Best bargains are 1985/86 Lux models, early S2 examples and late Turbos. If you track down a good 944, you'll wonder why anybody would ever contemplate buying a new coupe, when something so good can be yours for so much less. Putting a Porsche on your drive for £6,000 is a realistic proposition. It's worth it just to set the neighbours' curtains twitching.
