Although the appeal of the budget speed of the 944 Turbo is certainly large, the actual driving experience around town can sometime be a bit lacking and the expense of 25 year old turbocharged technology can be a turnoff. Luckily, Porsche offered its own solution with the 944S2. Well covered on these pages, the S2 offers early Turbo levels of performance from its 3.0 16V motor, with no turbo lag. I’ve said it was perhaps the best all-arounder Porsche has ever built, and I think overall that’s a realistic look at the S2; if all-out speed wasn’t your goal, the S2 offers practicality, lower ownership costs and enough power to take advantage of one of the best handling chassis ever made. Take a look at this 1989 example:

This particular example has been modified to suit track duty more, but remains a car you could drive to the track and home. For some, the modifications are probably a little too extreme. But for an occasional car to have a lot of fun in, this 944S2 offers a lot of performance for little money. It’s an excellent alternative to the standard E30 M3 crowd and 1/3 to 1/4 the price of many similar condition examples. It wouldn’t be impossible to revert this car to stock configuration, but you could buy a stock configuration one if that was the goal for about the same price, so you’re buying the modifications. To me, that’s not a bad thing; I’d probably sort some Turbo S-spec wheels and some original sport seats, drop the tint and call it a day. This car looks like a great deal!
