Introduced in 1982, Porsche's front-engined, rear-wheel drive 944 was a direct development of the 924 and was built around a re-engineered 924 platform. The company replaced the Audi engine with their own four-cylinder unit of 2.5-litres which, despite having few common parts, was effectively half of the 5-litre V8 that powered the 928. The 944 S2 saw the light of day in 1989, by which time the engine had grown via 2.7-litres to 3.0-litres in capacity, turning the newcomer into a 150mph car. For the first time there were two body styles to choose from - Coupe and Cabriolet. A total of some 9,352 S2 Coupes were produced before the 944 model range was superseded by the 968 in 1991. The right-hand drive 944 S2 being offered is finished in the classic Porsche hue of Guards Red and trimmed in contrasting Grey cloth and is fitted with manual transmission. Having been in current ownership since 1998 and displaying 83,850 miles from new 'J518 JFM' is offered with a collection of old MOT's and original handbook. This smart looking example is offered with an MOT certificate into February 2019.
