How about a 924?

Direct bolt in for a 5 cyl TD, light weight, fantastic handling, already water cooled, and incredibly cheap.

I have a very sound 1981 with M471 (turbo suspension, wheels and brakes), and a 5000 TD just waiting their turn through the shop.  My eldest daughter's dream car is a diesel Porsche (OK, her SECOND dream car, since an orange '68 912 would be first, and maybe that is shared with an India Red 964).
