might want to look into a 914. BEFORE you look away see if you can get a drive. i was recently talking with a 914-6 owner who has had many porsches and thinks this one is still the most fun for some reason.


914s are scoffed at by so-called "purists," but then so are 924s, so who cares? Trouble is, a 914-6 in decent condition is going to run you. Same with a 951. Even the 914-4s are running high these days, unless they are "projects."

An N/A 944, 924S, or 320i are all going to be in a similar price range--924S perhaps the best bang for buck of the three, and a better autocrosser to boot (lighter than a 944).

Function before fashion.
