Porsche of the peo­ple

New Zealand Classic Car - - ONLINE THIS MONTH -

Michael Ahie tells us the bril­liant tale of get­ting his hands on a piece of his fam­ily’s his­tory and bring­ing it back to life. This Rover SD1 has been lov­ingly re­stored by gen­er­a­tions of Michael’s fam­ily and was un­veiled to his whanau with much cel­e­bra­tion.

Head to the­mo­tor­hood.com and search ‘SD1’ to read Michael’s ter­rific story. ames Black checks out vi­able Porsche own­er­ship in the form of the 944. Never con­sid­ered a purist’s Porsche due to its front en­gine, rear drive set-up, the 944 S2 proved its abil­ity to head off a few of the 911s of its day with a de­cent wheel­man at the helm. While the 928 has al­ready be­gun to spike, the 944 still ap­pears a good pack­age with a de­cent price tag. But will it ever be con­sid­ered a proper clas­sic?
