This 944 S2 is now being offered for auction out of New York while showing approximately 66k miles on the odometer.

Paint imperfections are noted including crazing most notably along the rear fenders, and additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.

The seller adds that an upgraded Blaupunkt radio has been installed, and very small separation of the seam is noted passenger’s seat. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly.
The largest displacement four-cylinder of its time, the 944 S2 carries a 3.0-liter 16-valve DOHC engine rated at 208 HP and 207 lb.-ft of torque.

This sale will include a clean title, a window sticker, owner’s manuals, a toolkit, and some documentation.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for viewing my auction. With the exception of having a modern Blaupunkt radio, this car is completely stock and unmolested, a rare find for this model! This is a great car but I have decided to simplify and will be selling a few of my several collector cars over the next year. Good luck bidding!”
