Why compete with an old-school Porsche 944 Turbo Cup car?

Besides helping launch Porsche Cup racing as we know it, the factory-built Turbo Cup provides an easier path than others to enter historic racing.

It got me thinking 944Cup car with racing history may still be attainable for the regular joes with a budget of under $60k.  The challlenge would be were to does search for one? I dont recall BaT or Cars n Bids offering any ( perhaps PCA ). I will add this to my bucket list, along with an e46Touring in stock form or with the s54 swap.  If anyone knows of a 944Turbo or e46T for sale.

Please feel free me to email me, Crossworth1 @ G m a i l .

I never drove a 944Turbo, but I did own and maintain to two 928GTS 5spd's when they under $50k.

Naturally, I regret selling the GTS, but  as the life style of a "regular joe's" goes. It is almost always a balaning act of finance for fun and family. 

Rule #1 family well being is paramount.

Could I afford a really awesome car if I didn't have a family? Yes. Would I trade my family for anything? Absolutely not.

I love my wife and kid to bits, and I know someday I'll be in a better position to buy something "fun."

The more I see/learn about the 944 the more I like them.

I was there when Chris shot this–I'm the person Ray is talking to off camera–and, yeah, he really does make a convincing argument for this. Hope to see continued growing interest in these '80s and '90s showroom stock-type cars.
