Lot 323 - 1992 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet *WITHDRAWN*
|Odometer reading||90,910 miles|
The Porsche 944 was built from 1982 to 1991 and was built on the same platform as the 924. The 944 was intended to last into the 1990s but major revisions planned for a 944 S3 model were eventually rolled into the 968 instead which replaced the 944. The 944 was a successful model and was available as both a coupé and cabriolet in naturally aspirated and turbocharged forms. In mid-1985, the Porsche 944 underwent significant changes. These included a new dashboard together with new door panels, embedded radio antenna as well as some mechanical changes. Also included was a larger fuel tank, optional heated and powered seats, Porsche Hi-Fi sound system and revisions in the mounting of the transaxle to reduce noise and vibration. The numbers built, reflecting the popularity of the model, made it one of the most successful cars in Porsche's history.
Registered to a specialist in London, the penultimate keeper owned this good-looking car since 1996 until 2015. Presented in classic Porsche Guards Red with black Logo Linen sports seats, the overall condition is good, it has recently had a repaint and all brakes replaced including discs and pads all round. Not only that but it benefits from a major service including all oil filters, plugs and coils. The alloy wheels have been stripped and refurbished, a replacement clutch fitted 3,000 miles ago and a cambelt replacement undergone within the last 6,000 miles. Supplied with a V5C registration document, a current MoT test certificate and the original handbooks, this is a sound and unmodified 944 S2 and one that has been used sparingly in the last few years.
DUE TO CIRCUMSTANCES BEYOND OUR CONTROL, THIS LOT HAS HAD TO BE WITHDRAWN.
