Description

"Initially introduced in 1985, the 944 underwent significant changes in 1989, most striking of which, was the introduction of the cabriolet model. The S2 Cabriolet was supremely competent, very comfortable and decently quick. Powered, as it was, by the 210bhp normally aspirated, double-overhead-cam, 16-valve, 3.0-litre version of the 944S engine. The largest four-cylinder engine in production at the time. 
Few 944’s are presented in the condition seen here today. There is much to say regarding this extremely fine example. Give or take a few thousand miles here or a couple of months there, a near continuous Porsche or Porsche specialist service history accompanies this car as well as a fresh service just a month ago. New front and rear brake discs and pads were fitted earlier this year as well as a new handbrake cable and shoes, a new timing belt and associated tensioners and guides. Not only is the interior in excellent condition, but the paintwork matches it. Hard to fault, even in full daylight. Keeping the rain out is a new hood (2016) supplied and fitted by the Sheffield Trimming Company as well as new tyres all round that same year fitted to excellent Carrera Cup alloys. Freshly serviced and inspected by the vendor’s MoT testing station, it obviously passed with flying colours. The MoT test certificate, owner’s pack as well as much other paperwork are all in order and supplied with the car. A super example."
