The 1990 model year marked the second to last year for the 944 and the first of a two year run for the rare 944 S2 cabriolet. Just shy of 2,500 cabriolets were ever produced. Carried over was the 16 valve, 3.0 liter four cylinder engine producing 208 horsepower.

MotorWeek road tested the S2 cabriolet back in 1990. They provide a good run down on how involved the assembly process was. Here’s the clip:
While over 100,000 miles might seem like a lot, the Porsche four cylinders are pretty reliable, given proper maintenance. Few cabriolets were produced in the first place, so survivors these days are becoming scarce. NADA lists average retail right around the seller’s asking price, so if the car could be had for between $10,000 and $11,000, this would be a good deal.
