An 83 is definitely not a 924 with a different body, lol. The engine is completely different. While the early cars had lower horsepower, they are also lighter which makes them a blast to drive. ...

I don't think a 993 is any more expensive than a 996 provided you find a car that has been maintained properly and has good engine numbers. But...with that being said, I also don't think 25k is a...

I do not like to go past 7500 on oil changes in these cars. It is considered normal usage to add a quart of oil every 1000 miles. 0w-40 or 5w-40 are recommended.

Have you tried contacting your local PCA chapter? They can usually give you some pretty good choices for your area. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone off the top of my head in that area.
