Just Because This Porsche 944 Is Beat Up Doesn't Mean It's A BeaterMichael Ballaban8/04/13 9:01amFiled to: lcbclittle car in the big cityporsche 944porsche752EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkWelcome to Little Car in the Big City, where I highlight fascinating cars I found walking around a town that is known for being bigger than everything else, but where every car is fighting to stand out: New York, New York.AdvertisementThe front-engined Porsche coupes can be odd ducks for many people. Porsche is famous for its 356, 550 Spyder, and (of course) the 911, all cars with the motor behind the driver. That's why finding one, especially in New York, is a bit of a rare treat. If you're going to get a Porsche, might as well just spring for the 997 911 Turbo, obviously.That means the ones who spring for the 944, its bigger brother, the 928, and its younger cousin in the Porsche family, the 968, connoisseurs of class and taste.ShareTweet Kinja is in read-only mode.
