Bought It Right

1986 Porsche 944 Turbo
$33,000 at RM Sotheby’s Amelia Island

Even though $33,000 sounds like a lot for a Porsche 944 Turbo, Hagerty says that a No. 1 example is worth north of $40,000. Add in the prestige of buying a premium example from a European collection, and maybe this one makes sense.



Paid Too Much?

1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S
$46,200 at RM Sotheby’s Amelia Island

Hagerty reports that this is right on the money for a totally perfect 944 Turbo S, but that still seems like a lot of bread to us-especially since most of that special Turbo S hardware became standard on the Turbo the following year.



Better Buy It Now

1991-’96 Porsche 968

Know what really might be the best 944 variant? The 968, the final chapter in the 924/944/968 story. Between the 1991 and 1 996 model years only about 4000 examples came stateside, with that number roughly split between coupes and convertibles. You can still buy one in the teens.




Online Market

1988 Porsche 944 Turbo S
$13,950 on Bring A Trailer

Legend says that Porsche only built 1635 copies of the 944 Turbo S for the 1988 model year. Yes, they’re rare, but perhaps this car is closer to reality: In December, this one fetched less than $14,000 on Bring a Trailer. Aside from a few small cosmetic issues, it looked clean.
