Should I buy 1983 Porsche 944 for my first car?
Well, it would be my first car and it is a 5 speed. 167k miles on it and it is $4000. Is it worth it and would it be a good car for me to commute to school and to work? All it needs is a new head gasket cover. Guy put new brakes, brakelines, and a master cylinder in it.

$4k is very high for a car that isn't ready to be driven on a 944. For $4k you should be able to find a 944 in pretty darn good shape with the maintenance done ready to go. If all it needs is a "head gasket cover" then why isn't that done on a car that is priced to drive? Why was it off in the first place... More

Wow that is a very nice find. A bit high for a car in the 80's but it is a Porsche so I would snatch it up real quick. Back then a Porsche 944 was all he rage for it's handling and over all awesomeness lol Yeah! not sure what the insurance would be on that though.

LOL this is a rich mans tinkerers dream. If you want a car that will cost a furtune to repair with things like 4 250 dollar shocks and all kinds of expensive hard to find parts this car is perfect. This is not a good daily driver and is not a good cheap car for a high school student... More

not unless you can throw about $150 a month at it, excluding gas and insurance. If you're lucky.
