        Doesn't sound like very comfortable seating

              I'd be interested in just one if anyone has a decent one laying around. Doesn't have to be perfect but would like it to be true. Just bought a nice set for my 325iS and it would be nice to have a semi matching spare even if it isn't as pristine as my full set.

                I think I might have a single one floating around. I'll look this week..


                Where are you located Jon?

                  they seem cheap to enjoy and mod, well cheap as in about the same cost as an e30. non interference engine with enough power. I dont care about small nuances not working

                    the least desirable porsche ever made

                    Comment


                      so? doesnt mean it can't be fun to drive. I dont need a lot of power to enjoy driving... and these cars certainly handle good. you never see them!

                      Comment


                        ...run away. Run away fast. They handle like crap, are terrible to work on, and just all around pieces of sh*t.

                        I speak from experience.

                        Even though it's a fancy VW - VW gave up on it, and went with the Scirocco instead. That should tell you something.

                        If you want a liquid cooled front engine/RWD Porsche - find a 944.

                          specific examples Jeremy? I have been reading some tidbits and the engine seems straightforward to work on. The rear suspension is different but not overly complicated. I know they have electrical issues but that doesnt bother me.

                            The motor tends to overheat. A lot.

                            The manual transaxle is in the rear and was actually designed for a FWD, so it's a CF to work with. Everything seems to be in the way of everything else when you try to work on it.

                            Not to mention, it's narrower than a 944, so always felt top heavy to me in the corner department. And unless it's been upgraded, it's drum in the rear, solid disc in the front - so brakes feel like crap.

                            They just felt cheap. And for the amount of effort and money spent to get any kind of performance out of it, you could have just started with a 924S or 944.


                            Spend the extra 1800 (or try to work him down more) for this:

                            You'll end up spending that much just trying to get to that level.


                            ...or this for cheaper:

                              I have been wanting a late 70s sports car for fun. Almost bought a 78 toyota corolla liftback 5speed with 2tc last week but decided to buy Pioneer CDJs instead (much better idea hahahaha)

                                ...you realize the late 70's a low point for cars in general? It literally was a giant step backwards in performance for everything. If you want a late 70's "sports" car, get an E21 and throw either an M42 (your favorite) or an M20 in it. You'll be money ahead.

                                If you want something different - get a 76+ Vega, and throw a later Buick V-6 in it (direct bolt in) and turbo charge the hell out of it.
