Re: what porsche??? (jbell)

$6500 will get you a really nice 924 in tip top shape that will look gorgeous and run like a champ. it'll also get an great 944, or a 928 worn around the edges.
i'd go for a nice 924 for that price. not the turbo though unless you find a mint one and want to do some aftermarket mods for reliability
. if you get a 924, make sure it has the M-471 option, or at least has discs in the rear (better brake option).
good luck!

Re: what porsche??? (JveshG60)

hey obin, just curious... do they make mounting kits for V8's into the 914? theres a 914 at our local SCCA events and he's really interested in bolting in a northstar V8. the whole project sounds really really cool and i would love to see it, just wondering how easy it would be.

Well, if you're not going to go with the cool R/C car, I'd search for an old 1970s 911 Carerra. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

914 2.0L - Super nice cars, get the chrome 'appearance package' and some polished fuch wheels, and you're lookin good!!
How much are the 968s, are they still really expensive? Cause those are super nice.

Yup, if you look over in the other thread, the 2.0 I posted is casually for sale @ $6,000.
$5,500+ should get you a very nice 4cyl 914, and is what I'd buy if I were looking for a Porsche at that price point.

I really love the 968's, but in general they are still fairly expensive. Prices I see for the coupes range from $14,000 for early high mileage coupes to $26,000ish for lower mile, newer examples. The convertibles are generally a little bit higher, but I have no interest in those.
