A Porsche 914! Before then I had seen the occasional sports car shoot down the road but I had never been close enough to touch and smell one, let alone sit and be driven in one.

An enthusiast’s guide to maintaining your 944 (and classics in general) – Part I


By Alex Proto

In many ways I’m your typical petrolhead… I’ve been around the track in anything from Caterhams to Jags, Porsches and Lambos. I’ve even subjected my trusty 944 turbo to multiple sessions at Brands Hatch and Snetterton, pushing this perfectly balanced beast to its limits (and,yes, past them… and into the pit).
