I don't know why some of you are so hard on the Porsches. I truly loved my 944 Turbo that I owned for 9 glorious years.
I had one recall during that period to install heat shielding around the exhaust and change the fuel lines. Other than that it was completely trouble free.
The sports car I owned before the 944T was a 1969 Jaguar XKE. Talk about a maintenance nightmare! Drive it a week...work on it 3 weeks. Beauty is on skin deep with this cat!
I don't think there are many cars out there that can be hot-rodded more than a 944 Turbo. It came stock with 217 HP but, with a minimal effort you could get 400 HP out of one. They are excellent handling cars with near perfect balance.
Would I want to drive a Porsche every day? NO! That's what the Benz is for! I look at Porsches as weekend or special occasion cars.
