Evaluation: Late 944 showing every single one of the 117,330 miles on its odometer. The paint is faded, chipped, and discolored. All the plastic is faded and discolored. There are huge rips and stains in the seats and popped seams in the shifter boot. It’s a struggle to find something good to say about this Porsche, because if it looks this bad, we can only assume what its mechanical state is. This is exactly the type of car they tell you not to buy at auction.
Bottom Line: Credit to the buyer at least, they could make more in parts than the $5,500 purchase price here. And that’s probably the most financially sensible option, because despite rising values, a 944 is still one of those cars that isn’t worth a ton of money, but will always be harried by Porsche levels of parts and service costs. It likely wouldn’t be worth much more than 15 grand, no matter what you spent fixing it up.
