Vehicle Description

STK 2906 1989 Porsche 944 S-2

The Porsche 944 was released to the European markets in November 1981. The launch of the 944 was billed as a 'brand-new Porsche' in order to establish the merit of this front-engine Porsche. Sales of the 944 model went through the roof and it is rightly considered to be the financial savior of Porsche. The 944S2 Cabriolet model was introduced to the US market in 1989. The manufacturing process for the Cabriolet was a joint effort between Porsche engineering and the independent German company, ASC Inc. Partially assembled factory coupes were shipped to ASC where the top was removed and a complete second floorpan was welded in for strength and rigidly. The converted Cabriolets were then returned to the Porsche factory for completion. It is said that Porsche exported a total of only 16 Cabriolets to the US in this first model year. This 3-owner 1989 944S2 is a great example of one of these rare Cabriolets. The exterior has been refinished in vivid Mazda Soul Red and features include fog lights, pop-up headlights, a hatch-mounted spoiler, updated 968 rear fascia and manual convertible top. The interior is upholstered in black leather with color-matched dash, door panels and carpeting. Features include A/C (recently serviced), power seats, power windows/locks, leather-wrapped wheel, full instrumentation and an ATOTA AM/FM/Bluetooth stereo/navigation system. The rear seat has been removed and the repurposed area is now available for easy storage. The naturally aspired 3.0-liter DOHC inline-four is believed to be the factory motor and is now fitted with a 'Mega Squirt EFI Controller' system that can be monitored on the ATOTA display screen. The 3.0 features four-valves-per-cylinder and a free-flowing exhaust system. The factory-rated output is 208 horsepower and 207 lb/ft of torque. Power is transferred to the rear wheels through a rebuilt five-speed manual transaxle. The 944S2 suspension platform features front struts, shock tower supports, rear multi-link suspension, variable-assist power steering and power disc brakes w/298mm diameter rotors. Porsche Boxster BBS wheels mount 17" Cooper performance radials. The owner has furnished a comprehensive document listing service/dates for the last 7 years. This is truly a Porsche 944S2 Cabriolet to enjoy everyday, especially those 'drop-top' days in the mountains or at the beach. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
