Been thinking about finding another clean 914 for a few years. Then expanded my thinking to the up and comers; 924/944/968. Then convinced myself I was only casually looking and well, if you look at 968’s, might as well go big and look at the CS.

Found this one recently brought in from Japan. About 1900 CS’s produced from 92-95. None sold in the US but could be imported starting around 2018 (after 25 years). Availability is even more limited due to many RHD cars. Will take delivery as soon as I can arrange transportation in the next 2-4 weeks hopefully.

Very cool, looking forward to more info once it lands here! I've always had an interest in the transaxle cars including the 928 but never seriously thought about getting one so far. A 944 was the very first Porsche I ever drove (as a teenager) and that was an eye-opener.

Oh, yeah....the ultimate progression of the 944. This one looks fantastic as it's not all splashed up with the CS graphics that are so common with those. What a great get.

You know, that’s an interesting idea. I’m sooooo disappointed with every other car forum I’ve been a part of. Reenlist was ok at one time…not now. I have a Scout and the BinderPlanet forums sucks. Have looked at 968 forums and they’re terrible. Truly nothing can beat the easy format, activity and community that is 914World!!

We have 944s and 928s in our household. Would be nice to get a watercooled transaxle forum as a sub category on these pages.

You're right about the other forums.
I visit Rennlist forum every so often just to keep my fingers in the 951 world (I've been on there since the Porschelist days...) and now a bit more since my nephew just added a 944. It's painfully obvious how much better 914 world is, though.

Very cool cars and the final development of a real drivers car,shame they only built a handful of the turbo version ?.
Amazing handling even in the early version 944 ,mine was ROW 85 model with a 89 ROW 2.7 engine and MAF conversion,went well and was so much fun on sharp corners and twisty roads...miss that car for those reasons .
Don't agree with the comment about the side decals if you have one of these in the US why not flaunt it with them ...I would lol .
The CS is an investment car due to limited numbers,but even the basic 968 was as really good car and often underated.
Well done and post updates when you can ,cheers.

Thanks everyone. It may be a while before I can update. I admit I had to let go a bit with this car. Mark, it iappears to be a very clean car but has had a repaint which normally I’m dead against. But i tried to lighten up a bit this round. When the cars are so difficult to find in the first place, it’s tough to demand perfection unless you want to pay truly insane levels.

More to come at some point.

I think I agree with you on the decals. It’s a unique car and being a little garish somehow seems fitting or acceptable on this car. I think I’ll likely add them.
