Hitting Bottom – 1986 Porsche 944

September 29, 2013

One of the best places to look for great deals is in cars that are at the bottom of their depreciation curve. Often, this has as much to do with the car as with how many survive, or how popular it was. And it does appear that a high survival rate, due to robust drivetrains and zinc-oxide-coated bodies, is contributing to the low, low values of Porsche 944s, particularly the base models. For example, you can find this 1986 Porsche 944 in apparently very decent condition for only $3200 in, well, it’s hard to tell where it is – the listing does not specify location, and the car’s Illinois plates together with the seller’s northern Utah phone number do not give a definite clue. But the seller is moving cross country, so at least you’ll know he soon won’t be in the same location as the car!
