    I think my next car will have to be a Porsche 944 Turbo...anybody had one of these? I'd LOVE to get a 911, or even a 928 (BAD A$$ CAR), but the 944 Turbo just looks cool.

    Just thought I'd say that.

    I like the 79 Carrera 2.7 too, the old ones are awesome. Who wouldn't like a speedster? Most people don't know that the 928S was faster than the 911's for most of it's production...Porsche V-8...how cool is that?

    A co-worker of mine has a 911 and 2 928's. The 911 is OK but he has scared the crap out of me in the 928's!

    I would go for the 928 just because it has more power than ANY 944, a stock V-8 that puts out over 300hp, GOBS of low end torque and is much more comfortable to drive.

    The best 944 you get has a 4 cylinder with a turbo. It puts out similar numbers to the 928 but the quality of a 928 is much better than the 944.

    But they're so EXPENSIVE!!!!

    I just want stuff I can't afford. 928 would be the dream, but it has to be the GTS..SMOKIN'. And hardly anybody knows about the v-8 under the hood. The headlights are cool too.
