Footnotes

  • Announced in 1981, the 944 was the third of Porsche's new family of front-engined sports cars. A close relative of the 924 original, the 944 was constructed along similar lines and from a distance was hard to tell apart from its progenitor. Beneath the bodywork (50mm wider than the 924's) was a 2.5-litre, 163bhp overhead-camshaft 'four' fitted with twin balancer shafts to counter the vibration often encountered in such units. The rear transaxle - a five-speed affair this time - was retained, while the 924-type running gear was suitably up-rated to cope with the 944's superior performance. Subsequent developments included a Turbo, 16-valve 944S, 3.0-litre S2 models and a cabriolet, while the base model's 8-valve engine grew to 2.7-litres. Porsche claimed a maximum power output of 211bhp for the S2 and a top speed of around 150mph.

    This particular Porsche 944 S2 was purchased from its original owner by the current vendor in March 2009. At that time the car had covered 43,700 miles, to which the vendor has added a further 3,900, making the current total 47,600. Finished in Guards Red with of-white leather upholstery, the car is described as in generally excellent condition, the only fault notified concerning the passenger door, which does not respond to central locking. Offered with sundry service bills, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5C document, this is a great value-for-money car offering performance approaching that of a 3.0-litre 911 Carrera at a fraction of the cost.
