This ultra-rare and highly desirable Porsche is a rare survivor of a limited series built following the favourable reception given to a prototype “Sport Equipment” version of Type 944 S2. An internal Porsche Memorandum states: “After being driven by a number of the Management Team, verbal approval was given to the purchase of the parts to construct 15 vehicles”. This memo dated 7th February 1992, production of the 944 having ceased in 1991.
The SE´s improved specification included Koni adjustable dampers; shorter and stiffer front suspension springs, additional coil springs at the rear; adjustable rear stabiliser bar; engine output increased to 225hp, with improved torque from 4250rpm and ride high lowed by approximately 30mm.
Benefits listed include improved acceleration in higher rev range; flatter cornering due stiffer springs and increased roll resistance; more precise steering; improved responsiveness and confidence-inspiring handling; adjustability – can be turned to suit customer requirements and all-round better responsiveness. The downsides include a harsher ride, increased noise, and higher fuel consumption, but then increased performance always comes at a cost, not that this world troubled the SE´s target market.
It was understood only 14 cars were completed; indeed, so rare is this model that its creation was long thought to be a myth. As such there is a very little information about the 944 S2 SE. The Porsche Club GB records show that two of the cars were written off in accidents; only six, including that offered here, are known to exist today.
This car is offered from a ten yeas storage, has covered a documented 85.000 or so miles from new and a programme of re-commissioning/mildly restoration has just been completed. It comes with letters of authenticity from Porsche confirming that the VIN is one of the SE cars; a copy of the aforementioned Porsche Memorandum; sundry bills; a V5 registration document; and a full service history. A wonderful opportunity for the discerning Porsche collector to own one of the mythical beasts.
