This early 944 example isn’t the most desirable year or spec. But it has a great ownership story. Namely, it’s a two-owner Southern car that’s been extremely well preserved, including a recent $5k service to take care of a ton of age-related maintenance items, including the timing belt, water pump, and most fluids, so the next owner doesn’t have to.
This one also gets bonus points for its great period color as well as those iconic Fuchs wheels (which weren’t fitted to later model years).
For a pure sports car with period appeal, the 944 is a great choice – as long as you pick up a well-cared-for example like this one.
It’s offered on craigslist HERE by a private seller in the DC area for $8500, which is reasonable considering the condition and recent work done.
