NO RESERVE! - 1990 Porsche 944 S2 3.0

***NO RESERVE***

Highlights


・Clean tidy paint, 
・Recently had service and cambelt done, 
・Lovely cream leather interior

The Background


The 944 S2 was introduced as a successor to the 944 S in 1989 and was powered by a naturally aspirated Dual overhead cam 16v 3.0.

The toys were also upgraded from the previous model, with the addition of a revised transmission which saw the car score a healthy 6 seconds on the 0-60 times.

The wide boy bodykit and stance made it very popular and it was seen as the car to have in that late 80s early 90s period by those that could afford to own one.

Today they represent a very affordable classic Porsche ownership that’s still modern and reliable to be used daily if required.

The History


The owner purchased this car some 18 months ago with view to keeping it long term. It has spent its life well looked after from what can be seen of the paperwork and it has certainly been dry stored under cover for the entirety of its current ownership.

The owner spends his time between London and the family home in Barnstaple and now that London is introducing the ULEZ scheme it doesn’t make sense to keep it in London and so he has decided to let someone else enjoy it.

He has however, made sure that it has had a recent Service and cambelt for the new owners peace of mind.

The Paperwork


There are a number of receipts present for previous works large and small including recent tyres and also the major service and cambelt/waterpump the cars recently had.

There is also a service schedule with a lot of Porsche Dealer or specialist services stamps in it to back up the cars maintenance record. Present also is the V5 and a number of previous MOTs.

The Interior


The cars interior is in cracking condition with the cream leather being very nice. The drivers side bolster has some minor wear and there is a small amount of discolouration to the leather. The only downfall is a crack in the centre of the dashboard, as can be seen in the photos.

The car is fitted with an aftermarket Momo steering wheel which is easily removable and replaced with an original if a new owner is preferred.

The rear seats look to have hardly been sat in. Everything works inside as it should and it is classically Porsche in that the focus is on the driver. In summary then, not quite concourse but very tidy and with a few small tweaks could be very clean.

The Exterior 


Similarly the exterior is much like the interior, very very tidy. Finished in the lovely Baltic Blue , on the whole the paintwork is great with a deep shine to it, it is believed to be the original paint.

There is however a small amount of laquer peel on the passenger side rear quarter (pictured) the wheels have the odd curb rash here and there, there's a scuff on the passenger wing mirror and a small amount of corrosion starting on the passenger side skirt but as you can see overall it’s a very good looking vehicle.

The owner has also stated that the car will come with the expensive cover that he purchased for it.

The Mechanics 


Mechanically the car drives very well with no weird noises, knocks or bangs. The exhaust note is particularly nice and it’s a joy to drive.

Clearly mechanically it has been regularly looked after and the recent servicing, belts and water pump should give new owners a certain amount of peace of mind.

 **Had new timing belt, alternator belt and balancer shaft belt plus all new rollers fitted last year**

The Appeal


If the killer “80s wide boy” looks of this classic 944 S2 don’t get you excited, maybe the lovely note coming out of the rear end produced by that lovely 3.0 4-cylinder will… Or maybe the sumptuous figure hugging cream leather sports seats are grabbing your attention? 

This car has a lot to offer and whilst it has a few minor blemishes it is very clean for a 32 year old car and will not disappoint, i'm sure once you get behind the wheel and show it some bends on a Broad blast you won't even remember the odd stone chip.

 About the max bid process

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

About Max Bids

Anti-sniping

C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 10-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

If your bid is below the reserve price you'll bid that amount if you are the highest bidder.
If you are the highest bidder and place a bid above the reserve we will only go up to the reserve price.
Once the reserve has been met C&C will make sure you are the highest bidder using the bidding increments stated below, keeping you in the lead up until your maximum bid.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000£100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000+ £500.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.
