Brown and Tan: 1983 Porsche 944

It wasn’t that long ago that 80s Porsche 911s were selling for something in the $10k-15k range in okay condition. It wasn’t that they were under priced…it was simply that there were a bunch of them sold…343,134 aircooled 911s from the first 4 generations (1963-1997) to be exact, and they were expensive to maintain/keep. But about a decade ago something clicked in the mind of buyers and prices have skyrocketed from affordable to silly. What is strange is that the watercooled front-engine 924/944/968 lineup (that put money in Porsche’s wallet so the business could continue to make 911s) didn’t get as much love from this Porsche appreciation frenzy…but that’s okay, because I still want to own one and I don’t want (or need) to raid the kids’ college fund to do so. Find this 1983 Porsche 944 offered for $9500 in Long Beach, CA via craigslist.
