This low mileage S2 Cabriolet presents beautifully in classic Guards Red. The paint maintains a deep, glossy shine throughout with little more than a handful of light frontal stone chips to report. Each panel remains straight and true, and there’s no evidence of corrosion in any of the usual areas. All the black trims, including the door handles and rubber window seals, remain in fine fettle with no fading or damage to note. Part of the 944’s charm is of course the pop-up headlights, both of which function without fault. Likewise, the electric hood still operates smoothly and is quickly stowed for those fair-weather drives.
Glancing across the pristine cabin it’s hard to believe this car is actually 30 years old. Both the seats and door cards are upholstered in soft pinstripe velour (cloth door cards a factory option) with supple leatherette trim extending from the bolsters to the headrests. There are no unsightly blemishes or worn areas to be found, even to the driver’s bolster, with other details such as the gearknob, steering wheel and dash still very fresh indeed. The switchgear is also unmarked, with modern refinements that include electric windows, heated and electric door mirrors, and electrically adjustable seats for optimal comfort and convenience. Another great feature is the factory-fit Panasonic CQ-F35 cassette radio, well suited to the interior aesthetic and pleasingly still in place after all these years.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The 3-litre engine sparks into life first turn of the key, producing a wonderful soundtrack as it propels you from 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds, and relentlessly on to a top speed of 149mph. The five-speed manual gearbox is essential to this performance and remains feeling as tight and precise as ever.
The engine bay is remarkably well preserved, not overly dressed but in outstanding original condition throughout. Looking closely there are no signs of any damage, corrosion, or poor repair to be found. Following inspection the car appears in great mechanical shape, most recently benefiting from a cambelt change in May this year at the current mileage.
WHEELS, TYRES AND BRAKES
The 944 sits on its original 16-inch Design 90 alloy wheels with coloured Porsche crests, all of which present to an impeccable standard. They are wrapped in a matching set of quality Bridgestone tyres that have seen less than 100 miles of use since fitment. The brake discs and pads also show plenty of life left, feeling strong and responsive on test, confidently pulling the car to a halt.
This low mileage S2 was first registered in January 1990. It was supplied new by our local Porsche main dealer, AFN Limited in Guildford. Most interestingly, when the first owner took delivery of her brand new car she actually lived in the lane opposite our current showroom! 30 years and just 1 keeper later the Porsche has returned to Kingsley, now offered for sale with its original ‘G944’ registration number and a mere 57k miles from new.
The car remained with its first owner from January 1990 until June 2016, when it was purchased by the current keeper for his large private collection. Despite covering very few miles in recent years the 944 has received two cambelt changes (most recently in May 2020), a full service, four new tyres, a new fuel pump and filter, battery, bonnet struts, and new brake fluid – all this within the last 100 miles or so. We have also had the car fully inspected on arrival with us for the new keeper’s peace of mind.
Present in the History File you’ll find an S2 sales brochure, price list, and even the original bill of sale from AFN Porsche, which shows this car to have cost an eye-watering £37,169.23 back in January 1990. A letter from the previous owner explains how the service booklet was unfortunately mislaid while also confirming that servicing was carried out by AFN Porsche and then Camtune in Godalming. Given the overall exquisite condition of the car it’s clear to see this one has led a truly pampered lifestyle.
