1991 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet
The Porsche 944 was produced from 1982 to 1991 and received many upgrades and improvements over the years that it was produced. It was a front-engine, rear-wheel drive car and was available in a Coupe or a Cabriolet.
The 944 S2 was introduced in 1989 with the 944 S2 Cabriolet being the first 944 to be offered as a convertible. The car featured a high performance naturally aspirated engine with a capacity of 3.0L but the engine had dual-overhead cams with 16 valves, 4 valves per cylinder, which produced 155kW – 15kW more than the 2.5L 944S. The changes made to the 2.5L were retained in the 3.0L S2 engine such as a self-adjusting timing belt tensioner, a larger capacity oil sump, magnesium intake tract/passages, a magnesium valve cover and a revised exhaust system, to mention a few.
The DME was upgraded to the Bosch Digital Motronic system and the car also received progressive springs for improved handling, larger front and rear anti-roll bars as well as a revised transmission and improved gearing. Top speed was 240km/h and zero to 100km/h was tested at only 6.4 seconds. Not bad performance for a naturally aspirated 4-cylinder car!
This specific car is a 1991 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet – 1991 was the last year the 944 was produced. An extensive amount of restoration work has gone into this car including:
- A full leather interior imported from overseas

- New clutch
- New engine mounts
- New brake pads
- New stainless-steel exhaust
- Power steering pump reconditioned

The car has done about 165,000 kms since new. The mileage counter has stopped working but the mileage can be traced on all the invoices and history of the car. Finished in black with a beige interior this 944 represents great value for money and a unique opportunity to own a very rare and clean example of a 944 Cabriolet.
