well I figure it this way. Before I would buy a car off the lot and pay a payment of $300 or so a month and trade it in in 3 years and be upside down a couple grand. So, I figure its okay when I am upsidedown in these cars a little. thats $6k upside down, so I just drop the money into the car...
its the only sane way to think about it

Well as an aspiring 928 owner I have read all these threads in horror and amusement. The fact that I am still an aspiring 928 owner qualifies me to manage the TARP funds!

Maybe I will run into you sometime at a GTG, but you should really find someone with an S4 5 speed or a GTS so you can get the full effect.

When Imre gets his supercharged 85 back together I am sure he would be willing to take you on a white knuckled ride!

I paid $400 for my 87 928, I have over the last few years put a few bucks in it.

I guess I will have to keep my 928, I will never get my money out of it.

Hey, no one said you could count the cost of beer consumed while wrenching on your 928.

Good lord, you want to foster a bunch of divorces? NEVER add up the receipts. Hell my wife manages the credit cards so it's damn difficult to convince her that 928sRus is really a subsidiary of Home Depot.

Don't be scared off. There is no better value on Earth then the cost of entry into a 928 and the fun and enjoyment these cars give back -- are worth a few gremlins here and there.

The best way to avoid the "surprises" is to not be tempted by buying a neglected car for less money. Buy a car from a multi year owner and not a dealer. Make sure the seller loved it and did what needed to be done. Records going back to window sticker are usually proof of good care and help your odds alot.

Drive a bunch of them and don't rush. The hunt is half the fun -- for me at least. You know the right PO when you see him. He knows the car inside and out and you can tell he put his heart into it. Everytime I bought from someone like that -- I have been happy with my "new" car. I have typically paid more then market for a situation and a car as discribed above and think it's worth the extra $$$.

Buying from a guy who doesn't know anything about the car is usually a major red flag for big troubles down the road. You get what you pay for (usually) Good luck and be sure to post pictures when you get yours. If you found this site - I would bet that there is no turning back now. You know you want one!

1) Including all cars, probably 60,000 dollars

2) I have sold or traded or parted most of them. Some I made money, some... I did not. What I have left has about 25,000 in it, and I'd say I could get all of 5k for it.

3) When its done, for me - it will be priceless.

Iíll take you for a spin, just give me a little time to sort out the car. Tonight Iíll be firing it up for the first time in 2.5 years, then have to get new tires, some shake down runs and it will be ready to turn you to the dark side!!! As soon as the car is ready, Iíll come to one of the Saturday morning GTG in TO.

Iíve driven both, a 951 and a 32V 928 5-speed, and always preferred the V8.

Lets See...944 Turbo vs 928...in order of ownership

88 944 TurboS, purchase $13,500, spent $6,000 over 4 years, sold for $12,000. TCO $7500 $1875/yr.
90 928 GT, purchase $25,000, spent $3,000 over 2 years, sold for $27,000. TCO $1000 $500/yr.

With both of these cars mostly stock the 944 Turbo was a bit more costly to own.
The Porsche maintenance and repair facility I take my cars to say the 944 Turbos see a lot more shop time than any other Porsche model. And I still bought the next car...

A Hot Rod 500 hp 944 Turbo.
89 944 Turbo, purchse $11,000, spent $18,000 over 2 years (included new motor), sold for $10,000 when head gasket blew 4500miles after rebuild. TCO $19,000 $9500/year

Current involvement...
94 928 GTS, purchase $42,000, spent $3000 in 1 years, would entertain offers over $75K.

I paid $8000.00 about 6 months ago for my 87 S4. Drove it back to Vegas from Oregon, and had to replace the tires. Tires and alignment cost a grand. A few odds-n-ends, and a replacement owners manual, I think cost about $200.00. At this point with insurance, $ 464.00 thru Hagerty; $ 9664.00. I do need to replace the power steering hoses, fuel lines, heater hot water valve, carpet is missing under drivers side front mat, and carpet at the rear hatch is missing, and repaint the car. Also will have to get one of Roger's flex plate clamps. I imagine spending another $ 10,000.00 on the shark. I feel that if these fantistac cars are not considered collectable, It's our fault, we're the owners. I'am not about to give mine away. Also I didn't buy it to sell; I bought it cause I've wanted one for years, so happened I had some extra money.
