1989 Porsche 944 Turbo


47 of 250 red with chrome wheels

Porsche originally asked VW to make the 944 as an evolution to the 924, but VW sucks so Porsche did it themselves. It has a proper Porsche engine and some hips. It also happens to be my favorite Porsche.

This opinion is not shared by everyone, but if you take away wanting to show off, the 944 is objectively better than a 911. Proper sports car seating position and layout instead of the VW Beetle cockpit, perfect weight distribution, and so much cheaper you could either buy four of them or make one insane one for the same money as a good 911.

Even though prices have shot up, this is still one of the best deals going for cars from any time period.
