Forget about the turbo, the 3.0-litre S2 is the pick of the litter.

Having undergone a mechanical restoration by the best in the business, this Porsche 944 S2 is a cracker to drive on the road, and on the track.

Over the years, the Porsche 944 came in myriad guises.

However it’s the 3.0-litre ‘S2’ model that’s the diamond in the rough. The earlier 2.5-litre cars can’t pull the skid off a custard, and the turbos literally break every-second-weekend, meaning the late model examples have become the examples to have.

This Australian-delivered car had undergone a thorough mechanical restoration by leading 944 specialists Buchanan automotive.

The chassis was also setup with a road/race focus too, with all-new suspension units, bushes and hubs as well.

About the car pictured – 1990 Porsche 944 S2

This late-model example was finished in Gletscherblau – or Glacier Blue – with a black leather interior and a five-speed manual transmission. It was delivered new by Autohaus Hamilton in New Sotuh Wales, Australia.

Factory options included a manual removable sunroof, electric seats, air conditioning and sports alloy wheels. The car was relatively original and had been restored faithfully in-line with the factory’s intentions.

The three-litre motor ran like a Japanese sowing machine and it still felt gutsy through second and third gear. Numerous NOS Porsche interior pieces has been procured and fitted to the car, and it also wore a rare 968 sport steering wheel too.
