    I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    The Turbo versions of Porsche cars always had that special fascination...congrats, nice toy.

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    Congrats Ryan , very nice car. Make sure you take some good pictures next time at Crystal cove .

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    Ryan! congrats!!!

    Thats fantastic, looks like its in great shape, keep the shinny side up now

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    hehe thanks guys, I've been wanting this thing for a while now. It will take some time for me to learn its capabilities. I tested the brakes a little, they bite pretty good and have a really linear feel. I couldnt really test the handling because theres a nail in the front left that I need to plug today. But the little things I did do with it, it did with confidence.

    Carlos, you know Im a safe driver

    RC, its not a toy so much as my daily driver... but hey, I'll go along with it if you do. :-p

    Ron, I will be going to CC in november keep your eyes open for when I post pics.

    :-p yeps, I think my dad wants to use it as a daily driver while the 36 is being revamped (and he doesnt want to put miles on the 964). I offered to let my friend barrow it but he doesnt have insurence that will cover it so his mom said no (cant blame her)

    I think my dad will fix the 6er up real nice though. Just another project for another time I suppose. And it was a great 1st car. Not too much power but it is also 5spd and I was able to learn a little bit of car control and heel toe down shifting etc.. in it.

    A 944 Turbo that isn't Red? What tha?!

    Looks Great! I love the wheels along with the color combo. Whats the name of that color? Have fun it it. Ive always loved 944's, especially 951's.

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    Congrats Ryan, hope to see you driving around in it soon.

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today



    color is "charcoal gray". I like how its low key. It was the color I would prefer and I got lucky in coming across it.

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    Congrats Ryan.. A beautiful car that brings back lots of nice memories.. Thx 4 posting.

    Tell us more about it...

    Very nice car and definately a great choice for still being at the forenoon of your automotive career.

    I do have to admit though that I am not that fond of chrome alloys - they remind me of Mister Columbo's investiagtions in Beverly Hills a decade ago!

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    Congrats, have fun!

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    congrats on the car, it seems its in perfect condition, wow it also has an extensive mileage!! -->porsche is porsche

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    Nice going, Ryan! I've had two 951S's - very good track cars!

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    My first Porsche was an '86 Stone Grey 944 Turbo . It was the ultimate " yuppie/DINK sports car " in the mid 80s seen often around Chestnut St in SF or N. Clark St in Chicago as opposed to the slightly more expensive 911, which was sorta known as an old guy's car around that time !
    Have fun !

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    I loved that car when I was in high school, Congrats

    Re: I got one of the best things from the 80s today

    Those are fun! Chip it if it hasnt been, Boost baby Boost!

    Congrats!
