Welcome, That would have been a hard decision for me to make. That Porsche looked really nice, but I love my Miata!

ya it was a hard one but honestly the miata is really nice too man and the fact that it costs way to omuch to maintain the 944 was the real deal maker.

+1....before I bought my miata the 951 (turbo 944 for those that don't know) was on my short list of possible toy cars...I LOVE them!


Damn, now I'm second guessing myself

The 944 was a 85 sable brown metallic. Non turbo of course. I really liked the car but it was just too much money to maintain, i had to pay nearly 1100 dollars to change the clutch. And its about the same to have the timing cahin and water pump replaced wich is a critical issue with all 944's.

I love the 951 too but if you think that the N/a 944 is alot to maintain its about double for the turbo 951.
