Why a Porsche 944 S2
The 944 S2 Coupe is the rarest, best performing, most desirable naturally aspirated Porsche of the 944 family.It has nearly the same performance of the early 944 Turbo without the turbo lag and potential for major service expense.Except for the engine, the S2 shares all the performance features of the Turbo (i.e. exterior "Turbo" body styling, transmission, suspension, brakes).
Due to these characteristics it has become an appreciating collectible.I bought this well preserved example given that it's an enthusiast dream in being both an appreciating classic sports car that is reliable and modern enough to be driven daily if desired.
Media's praise for the Porsche 944 S2
"1989 - 1991 Porsche 944 S2 'A dynamic box-flared German that won't break the bank' - Collectible Classic"
... Yet the ultimate naturally aspirated 944 is the 944 S2, which arrived for the 1989 model year.
... Output increased to 208 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque - almost the equivalent of early Turbo models but without the low-end lag inherent to those cars.
... 'And so it is that the 944 S2 is now the better choice for American roads, horsepower figures be damned.The S2 revs more quickly than any Porsche this side of a 928, Producing instant power off the line - unlike the Turbo- and demands fewer around-town downshifts in the bargain.' "
Automobile magazine - 3/2017
"Unlike the Turbo model, the 3-litre 944 S2 possessed great pulling power through the range, ample at 3,000rpm, but still sounded fairly happy as it neared the 6,400repm maximum."
A Collector's Guide - Porsche 924, 944 & 968Michael Cotton
"The 944 S2 was arguably the most successful formula for the 944 model range. With a heavily redesigned 3-litre sixteen-valve engine, maximum power was a substantial 211bhp." Ultimate Buyer's Guide - Porsche 944 and 968 (1981 - 1995)Peter Morgan
