Hi I'm rather new here, been lurking for around a month. Yes I realize i don't have an av. Anyway, I've been thinking about getting what would basically be my second car. Currently drive a 13 year old mini van . What I'm looking for is something cool to look at and fun to drive. After watching an episode of top gear that air a while ago, which the drove "1500 quid" Porsches, they seemed to show that the Porsche 944 was a good buy. I am somewhat interested to hear what you guys say about the Porsche 944. It seemed to be the most reliable(according to top gear), and the 4 cylinder seems like a good balance of power and economy. These cars seem to go around 5,000 on ebay, so they seem cheap. Are there any other better Porsches that won't be maintenance nightmares in this price range (5000~9000)? I thought that there was another 4 cylinder Porsche with the body of the 911 around the early 1980s, the 912E, if I'm right what would that go for, and would it be a good choice as opposed to the 944?
