We Like To Drive…

 I mean, I like to drive, and that means that I control it all…and I want everyone else to be in control of their vehicles, too.  While I don’t ever see myself consciously getting into an autonomous vehicle, the thought that there will be fleets of these things out there with me is a little troubling.

Buying a Used 924S

Acquiring 924S and 944 cars is a disease for which there is no known cure.  We find parts cars, neglected cars and even good cars, but it seems that all of them have something that needs to be fixed or improved – thus the symptoms of the disease.

Mechanical Myths

“I will put some of this in it, and it will be fine.”  If it is leaking, it will continue to leak.  Magic fluids may help in an emergency, but eventually the leak will come back and it will need to be fixed properly.  Magic leak-stopping fluids may get you home, but they are not a permanent fix.

The Answer is Always 944

“But I want to do all of it.”
This is where the 944 shines. This is why the 944 is the perfect enthusiast’s car.
On Saturday you can go to the PCA autocross, and embarrass a Boxster or two. Sunday morning, you can go to Cars and Coffee, and park your classic Porsche up front.
On Monday, you can drive your 944 to and from work, read some forums when you get home, and order that coil-over kit you’ve been looking at. Next weekend you’ll embarrass three Boxsters.
When – especially when – you want to do all of it, the 944 has you covered.

Red-Hot 944! From Car and Driver

In the specifications page for the 944, the car was priced as tested at $21,000, comparable to the Corvette.  Options included leather sport seats and a digital AM/FM Cassette radio.  The engine showed 143 HP and 137 torques at 3,000 rpm – and the article mentions that with peak torque so low, you don’t have to push it to the redline.  

Kills Bugs Fast

Bugs get on your paint, glass, chrome, rubber, and whatever else faces the front of the car, depositing their dead, rotting carcasses and releasing all kinds of hellish chemicals. Here is a quick, easy, cheap solution.

The 944 Goes to the Track

Over 170 drivers and instructors registered to practice their skills at Sebring on the 3.74 mile seventeen-turn road course.  Several 944’s showed up to navigate the same course that hosts the 12-hour IMSA race each March.  The place bleeds motorsports history.
