The Porsche 944 S2 was introduced in 1989, powered by a 208hp normally aspirated, dual-overhead-cam 16-valve 3.0 L version of the 944 S engine. The largest production 4-cylinder engine of its time, it featured a bore of 104 mm (4.1 in) and a stroke of 88 mm (3.5 in). The 944 S2 also received a revised gearbox to better suit the 3.0-litre engine. The 944 S2 had the same rounded nose and a rear valance found on the Turbo model. The manual transmission cars quoted performance figures of a 6.0 seconds 0–97 km/h acceleration time, (0–100 km/h being achieved in 6.8 seconds) and a top speed of 240 km/h (150 mph).
