The Porsche 944 was built from 1982 to 1991 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 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.
This Porsche was originally registered on 10th March, 1989 and has recently been re-commissioned after a spell in storage. The current vendor has enthusiastically invested time and finances to ensure this 944 S2 presents in good condition. The blue coachwork has been 'refreshed' in places to a good standard and the matching velour interior trim is virtually unmarked. Supplied with the original handbooks, a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 10th January 2017, it is offered without reserve and could well prove to be a bargain.
