The Engine’s In The Wrong Place, And There’s A Mysterious Liquid In The Engine Bay

1984 Porsche 944

For our younger readers, consider how absurd the title sounds in the context of the cars sold by Porsche today. But in the late ’70s and early ’80s, many Porsche enthusiasts refused to accept the front-engined, liquid-cooled cars (the 928, 924, and 944) as “true” Porsches.

Now, as the Panamera, Cayenne, and Macan dominate the showrooms – and the 911 is now water cooled – ┬áthat sentiment seems silly.

This 944 looks stunning, even with over 160k on the odometer. The seller claims it’s original paint – only a very close inspection would prove it, but it looks spectacular in the few pictures included. The dash likely has cracks, as it’s been covered, but otherwise this looks like a lovely example of an early 944.

It’s on Pelican Parts in Florida for $7500 or offer.
