1989 Porsche 944 S2 3.0 Litre


Announced in 1981, the 944 was the third of Porsche’s new family of front-engined sports cars. A close relative of the 924 original, the 944 was constructed along similar lines and from a distance was hard to tell apart from its progenitor. Beneath the bodywork (50mm wider than the 924’s) was a 2.5-litre, 163bhp overhead-camshaft ‘four’ fitted with twin balancer shafts to counter the vibration often encountered in such units. The rear transaxle – a five-speed affair this time – was retained, while the 924-type running gear was suitably up-rated to cope with the 944’s superior performance. Subsequent developments included a Turbo, 16-valve 944S, 3.0-litre S2 models and a cabriolet, while the base model’s 8-valve engine grew to 2.7-litres. Porsche claimed a maximum power output of 211bhp for the S2 and a top speed of around 150mph.

First registered on the 1st of August 1989, this car displays a modest 92,000 miles from new with full service history to support. Supplied with a current MOT due to expire in July 2018 its last belt and clutch change was a mere 10,000 miles ago and a major service was undertaken less than 2000 miles ago.

With no scratched or unexpected paint chips on the body, all four alloy wheels are in perfect condition and its spare wheel, tools and air pump are also present. Fitted with a CD player with USB input, this wonderful example of arguably the most undervalued Porsches available, represents not only a fantastic investment opportunity, but also a practical and fun asset.

Described to drive, sound and handle exactly as you would expect, the car is completely rust free and ready to be enjoyed. Provided with an extensive history file.
