The S2 saw the light of day in 1989, by which time the normally aspirated engine had grown to 3.0-litres in capacity. A total of 4,000 Cabriolet variants were produced before the 944 model range was superseded by the 968 in 1991.
This decidedly handsome example started life on Porsche's UK press fleet before being acquired by a Simon Jones of St Helier, Jersey. The comprehensive service record (20 stamps) confirms it remained on the island until at least 2006 before returning to the mainland. The Porsche is finished in the attractive combination of colour-coded Alpine White bodywork, Blue hood and Blue leather upholstery, and rides on 17-inch Turbo hollow-spoke alloy wheels. It boasts an extensive specification including: electric hood; factory tonneau; headlamp washers; electrically-operated sports seats, windows, and heated door mirrors; Porsche floor mats; central locking/immobiliser; and JVC radio/CD player. It is currently viewed by the vendor as having 'very good' bodywork, paintwork, four-cylinder engine and five-speed manual gearbox, and 'good' interior trim. It is now being offered complete with warranted mileage of 58,000 (the service history confirms a cambelt change at 52,766), Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, and MOT valid to April 10th 2016. A seemingly very pleasing proposition.
