Up for auction is this 1990 Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet finished in Guards Red over a black leather interior.  Shown to be in a remarkably well-preserved state, this tastefully equipped 1990 example represents a fantastic value for any vintage Porsche enthusiast.  Having undergone a comprehensive mechanical service in 2018, this 944 is now being offered for auction in excellent driving condition showing approximately 83k miles on the odometer.

The eye-catching Guards Red finish on this 944 is shown to be in excellent condition with minimal signs of road going wear; detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with recent paint meter readings.  Noteworthy features include a recently replaced black canvas cabriolet top, custom yellow painted brake calipers and an aftermarket “Porsche” logo taillight lens.  This 944 rides on factory D90 wheels which come wrapped in healthy Kumho tires.

The black leather interior is stated to be in excellent original condition.  The seller confirms that the A/C blows ice cold and notes that all gauges, electrical components and accessories are fully functional.  An upgraded Alpine head unit has been installed along with aftermarket speakers providing the driver with greatly improved sound quality.  Factory options include power steering, power seats and a power-operated cabriolet top.

This S2 is equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.0L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at 208 HP and 207 lb-ft of torque.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a smooth 5-speed manual transmission making for an originally claimed 0-60 time of approximately 6.9 seconds.  In 2018, this 944 underwent a comprehensive mechanical service which included the following items:

  • New Belts
  • Cam Cover Gaskets
  • Spark Plugs
  • Fuel Pump

The sale of this 944 will include a set of two keys, original books and documentation, service records, tools, a spare tire, air compressor and clear title. The Carfax does show a mileage discrepancy, however, it is said to be a clerical error in which the seller is looking into clarification.  Do not miss your chance to own this well-sorted and tastefully equipped Porsche 944 S2 Cabriolet.

    The date listed on the tag is 10/89.
    In regard to your question on the mileage I addressed that issue in my very 1st comment here please read my statement. I contacted CARFAX and they concurred and agreed to address that in future reports.

    Work order says"water pump flange 'O' ring leaking at water pump r&r resealed flange 'o' ring.
    Never any hint of a over heating problem.

    You mentioned new O-rings and cam gasket. Those aren't typical landmark service items. Did it overheat or have a major engine issue that required a new cam gasket and new O-rings for the cylinders?
    Thanks

    My observations. ....for what their worth.
    The ultra low production S2 cab. is the best Porsche to have and enjoy. This Porsche has been a joy to own and very inexpensive to maintain. It is constantly under scrutiny most think it is a new Porsche model! Over the years we have owned almost every model ('67s up).
    All the the combined maintaiance on this Porsche would be 1 visit to the shop for any of the other Porsche's

    The removal antenna was placed for our trip home, I like entertaining my self on the road with truckers. I overlooked it's removal before some photos.
    Jim

  • Stryker14 1 month, 1 weekago

    What is the antenna coming out of the trunk right side?

  • jd-gt350 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    Well, I must admit this is a 1st but each to their own opinion. Yes the rear bumper pads were painted body color. They were not removed but loosen up ( 3 bolts each side ) cleaned, shot with a special primer, painted. I know this because I have directed several 944 owners how to do it.
    It was done before I purchased the Porsche the 1st time.

    Was the whole rear bumper re-painted or just the bumperettes? I would want to put them back to factory black. However, when removing them the paint would crack around them on the bumper if they were previously painted while on the bumper.

    Paint meter readings have been uploaded to the photo gallery.

    More info. on this PORSCHE:
    I have now owned it twice, an acquaintance owned it thru 1999, I purchased it from him for 6 years thru 2006, I sold it to another friend he had it for 12 years thru 2018 and I purchased it back now.
    My wife and I flew into Tucson had the Porsche serviced and drove back to K.C...1800 miles, over all 28mpg, no fluids added.
    I have access to a paint meter and I can confirm the paint is all original, PCAR did not post the photos. The top is a new high dollar($2281.03) euro top, I replace the rubber centered clutch the 1st time I owned it with a Sach clutch pack, pressure plate, throw out bearing, disc.

    @Maui928 LM3A as indicated on the build sticker is Guards Red. Correction noted.

  • Maui928 1 month, 1 weekago

    Correction needed; the exterior color is Guards Red.

    Hi,
    Please look @ the CARFAX PCAR provided. For 4 years the owner was able to pull into the Arizona inspection station and have exact mileage to the 1000. The guy should go to Vegas.
    The actual mileage was not recored till I had a total service done.
