Back on April Fool’s Day 2018 we published an article here about the reintroduction of the 944 by Porsche – total fabrication, Happy April Fool’s Day!. Anyway, it was by far the most popular, talked about and read article ever published on this site. Even though there was another article explaining that it was all shenanigans, we still get mentions, reads and questions about Porsche’s intentions with the “new 944.”

On my Hagerty news feed yesterday this article came up – Ten Tempting Classics for Under $10K. Guess who is on top?
The minute that the deal was sealed, I knew that I had made a grave error. This was one of the nicest 924S cars I had ever seen, and I was short-sighted enough to trade it away for money.
