I may be the only person on this board of the opinion that the S2 is the best of all the 944′s. OK, maybe the second best, the 944 Turbo S is tough to beat.
My fondness is derived in the fact that with the S2 you get all the styling and most of the performance of the Turbo cars without the headaches.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the turbo cars but the older I get the more I gravitate towards the path of least resistance.

There are a lot of things that are right with this car. Recent 90k maintenance, tasteful modifications, lots of detail work done are all things working in this car’s favor. My only hesitation is the “monster truck” look on the staggered rear wheels and the recent paint on the nose. In regards to the paint, without it you are dealing with 20 years of road rash. If it is done well, bravo! Being the glass half full kind of guy I will assume it is well done.
Good pictures and excellent description. Starting bid of $10k with no reserve. As I mentioned above, I am in the minority thinking this is a good deal. In fact, I could have it in my driveway for $11k shipped. If I was not stuck with a Clubman S I cannot seem to sell I would have to give this serious consideration. Best of luck to the seller.
