It's comfortable and dynamically engaging, and while the A/C does not currently function, the serpentine belt squeals on cold starts, and the whole car smells of fuel with a full tank, it's been a great pleasure to drive this thing for the last year or so. [Before we continue, I'm going to disclose a few things. I am a part-owner and co-founder of RADwood events. The event I attended in this … [Read more...] about Is There A Better Car For Weekend Drives Than A Porsche 944?
