        I remember the Porsche purists hated those when they first came out, and still do. I thought they were kind of cool.
        Just groovin' to my own tune.

          when its bad, they get even more silent than Subaru INC.

          its actually scary, be as guru as an engineer or take a beating, and be unhappy.

          the 928 had poor oil slow velocity intake, tiny engine bay..and very runted as americans got them.

          Going about a four cylinder quest, as I have driven every design. I tried a 944. that had a familiar compression Porsche would play with..but that balance of an inline...cold not hold clutch or headgasket.

          they got their lemons. stay smart.

          I get one look at that oil filled coil in their classics and it puts a pit in my stomach. I'd be hacking more or less than I did for an 87 Subaru.

              I have a buddy that collects cheap Porsches. He's got a 924, 944 and a 928. A couple of them even run.

                I really like 944s. The 928 has a great engine.

                  911s and 928s are the ones I like.

                    I had an '86 Porsche 944, and it cured me of the desire to ever own a European sports car again, and sent me running back to muscle cars with a giant hole in my bank account. What a money pit. Every time I turned around it was another grand to keep it running.

                    Unless you're made of money, a glutton for punishment, or gonna put an American V8 drivetrain in it, my advice is to run away screaming if anyone offers you one.

                        928 has always been my favorite Porsche, 911s are cool, the old old stuff is cool, but I want a 928S, have ever since my dad showed me Risky Business.

                        Cool car!
                        Rumors of my demise by rollover have been greatly exaggerated.

                          I grew up across the street from a Porsche mechanic. He fixed them all, USA & German export.
                          I remember holding the relay board up with my feet on a test drive in a 928,.. at 120

                            Good stuff!

                            It's kinda funny though...
                            "20 years" sounds like a long time.
                            "1993", however does not sound long ago...
