I confess that I don't get the 944 wing conversion. A CGT conversion yes yes yes, but 944?

I don't like it either, but there was a trend in the past of post-dating a car. To all of us now it's obviously pretending to be something else, and what's wrong with looking it like a 924 turbo? A 944 is pretty common and boring by comparison!

Based on the back dating trend with 964 911's trying to look like late 60's/early '70's versions, it won't be long before 944's get the narrow body treatment to look like '76 924's :lol:

Went for £6899 in the end. That's a fair profit for basically sticking it through an MOT........
