Yeah. When they're behind the wheel. (insert wistful sigh here)

I second that. Another car that should have been!!!!! I would so want that!!!!

IS that a kit that can still be had or was that a one off custom?

Right now, we're transporting our 90lb German shepherd daily in much the same way with our Integra hatchback (he goes to work with us) It actually works pretty well until you want to go on vacation. Forces the wife to pack light though.

It just looks wrong . . . in the right ways.

I've got a 924, not a turbo, but a 924. It's a fun car, looking forward to finishing it. I've also owned a 944. For some reason, I like my 924 more, it's lighter, it is far easier to work on and parts aren't all that bad. The 944 maintenance seemed to never end and I got tired of always having it up on stands. When it ran, it ran like a champ, I took that car all the time every day to work in all weather conditions. Rain, snow, ice, dry, you name it and that car was FANTASTIC. I've read both sides where 944 owners claim they run like a top 24/7 though I haven't ever experienced that, and all the 944 owners I speak to and know are on the same maintenance boat I was now and then. At the same time I've read the same thing from 924 owners who say they're a PITA. Then again how many of us went out and bought a pristine 924/944 that needed absolutely NOTHING? You get a 20+ year old car, it'll need stuff, regardless if it's CIS or EFI.

The 924 on the other hand lacked the creature comforts the 944 had. But for fun factor I enjoyed the 924 the times I went out to enjoy it. I like nothing on cars though, I don't like ABS, I don't like power this, I don't like power that, I hate power steering. Maybe I'm "Weird" and hell, I even like the non-power assisted brakes on my 914.

I think when most people go after a car to modify they want a car with a good aftermarket, support in the aftermarket that parts are easily available for, so I can completely understand why the 944 would be "choice" for a track car or even a daily since CIS parts are getting more and more expensive, harder to find.

I'll always remain a 924 fanatic, but to each his own. I don't own a turbo, and I'm certainly not going to get riled up, I can understand any fan of a specific car getting upset, defensive or passionate about the car. I'm very passionate about my cars, I try not to be quick to correct people, but try to offer information for those that perhaps don't know a lot about it. The 924board crowd is pretty good about being informative and spent a ton of time with how to tutorials, information, statistics and everything you can think of on how to work on them and even upgrades and modifications. With parts availability very LOW and hard to find, the members who have came up with substitutions, alternatives and random places that have parts.

However, I realize my car will never be a "world beater". I KNOW my car isn't going to be the fastest out there, and I may not be the fastest driver out there (probably won't be). But I like my car, more than anything I have sentimental purposes behind it and it got me addicted to Porsches of all kinds. It was my "gateway drug" to Porsches, so to speak.

I actually sold my 944.. kept the 924.

To each his own flavor!
