The Porsche 944 S2 was introduced in 1989, powered by a 208hp normally aspirated, dual overhead cam 16 valve 3.0 L version of the 944 S engine. The largest production 4 cylinder engine of its time, it featured a bore of 104 mm (4.1 in) and a stroke of 88 mm (3.5 in). The 944 S2 also received a revised gearbox to better suit the 3.0 litre engine. The 944 S2 had the same rounded nose and a rear valance found on the Turbo model. The manual transmission cars quoted performance figures of a 6.0 seconds 0–97 km/h acceleration time, (0–100 km/h being achieved in 6.8 seconds) and a top speed of 240 km/h (150 mph).
Finished in the striking combination of Alpine White with Cobalt Blue upholstery, ‘J73 KLR’ is understood to have been retained by supplying dealer AFN Porsche (London) Ltd for use as a demonstrator and indeed still wears ‘AFN’ branded number plates. Having covered 105,600 miles from new (a figure substantiated by 22 service entries and 26 MoT certficates), the 2+2-seater was originally specified with headlamp washers, leather seats, automatic heating control and an electric sunroof. Treated to a cambelt change at 104,052 miles, the 944 S2’s last main dealer service was carried out at 103,913 miles by Porsche Swindon. Presenting in fabulous condition throughout this is a real 90’s icon and reflects a car with half the mileage. Offered for sale with book pack, large collection of invoices, spare keys and a ‘no advisories’ MoT certificate valid until October 2021.
