Porsche

Even among the crowded world of German sports car manufacturers, Porsche is legend.

Any Car Can Get You Around Town. Only A Sports Car Takes You There.


The Porsche 944 is everything that the Porsche 924 wasnt, and it has finally given legitimacy to Porsches efforts to become a power in the world of front-engine, rear-drive cars. One of our favorite engines, ever since 1977, has been the Porsche 928s overhead-cam V-8. It turns out that slicing a Porsche V-8 down the middle results in a line four that is very nearly as lovable as the V-8 from which it sprang. Porsche had to add Mitsubishis Silent Shafts to damp out the four-cylinder vibrations, but what they came up with was a great engine, and what that engine powers is a great sports car in the great Porsche tradition. If we all owned 944s, wed never be able to hold our jobs. The temptation to veer off toward the mountains every day on our respective ways to work would overpower us sooner or later, and mountain roads would replace career paths as the most important things in our lives. At a price of around $21,000, it is a bargain. The 944 defines the term drivers car.What it does is what car enthusiasm is all about. Drive it with Patrick Bedards studied, surgical precision, or Don Shermans hang- it-out-there-and-see-what-happens abandon, and either way youll always love it.
