This is a very nice example of an increasingly rare production Porsche. It is a 1989 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet, Right Hand Drive, Manual Gearbox, and showing only 64k Miles from new and only 1 owner since arrival into the UK 17 years ago. It is a 1990 Model Year car with the larger 3.0 Litre Engine, Air Conditioning, finished in Crystal Silver with Burgundy Leather Interior and Burgundy Soft Top and Hood Bag. This colour combination is stunning in the flesh and must be one of the rarest combinations available. It needs nothing and ready for its next owner!
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.
This particular Porsche 944 S2 is a two owner car from new. An original UK specification car that was shipped to Hong Kong. The second and last owner purchased it from a local doctor in 2000 who then repatriated to the UK in 2002 shipping the car with him and has owned the car ever since. With its Original hood, immaculate interior, carpets and door panels, and all dials and gauges work as they should. It has had a recent intermediate service and new MOT with no advisories. Having covered just 64k miles in total this low mileage S2, from such long term ownership must be one of the best on the market today. Offered with sundry service bills, original book pack, Hood bag, current MoT and Swansea V5C document, this is a great value-for-money car offering performance approaching that of a 3.0-litre 911 Carrera at a fraction of the cost. Try finding another with this mileage, they are getting rarer and more expensive every day,
