1991 Porsche 944S2

The 1990s was considered a watershed moment for Porsche, for many reasons. True, the company was battling for solvency in an ever demanding marketplace, but some of the most interesting and most sought after models emerged from this decade. The 964 Turbo 3.6, 928GTS and 968 Clubsport are all examples of vehicles that represented the ultimate expression of their breed. True, there would be one more air-cooled 911 Turbo after the 3.6, but this would be the last non all-wheel drive Turbo outside of the limited production GT2 we would see, except for those out of specialist tuning houses.

In addition to the colorful model lineup, the variety of hues themselves that was available was impressive. I’ve never seen a 944S2 in Rubstone Red, but I’ve got to say, it certainly catches your eye. It probably is a bit polarizing for what is normally seen as a more masculine sports car, but in some odd way, it works for me. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Our friends at Flüssig Magazine spotted this one and shared it with us. The asking price for this S2 is right at the top of the range for these late model 944s and right about what a Condition 1 vehicle should bring in the eyes of Hagerty’s Price Guide. Now, obviously the color will be a very polarizing issue with this car. Personally, I like it, but there will be those who hate it. Also, you can get a very nice 944 Turbo for the price of this low mileage S2. If I were really in the market for an S2 I’d probably seek out a more subtle color, but I can’t help but appreciate the daring lengths Porsche went to with the color palate during this period, especially when I look at the drab and limited offerings many manufacturers have on tap these days.

  1. A fitting tribute as we kick off breast cancer awareness month!

  2. Comment of the week right there! You win 1,000,000 internets. Wow.

  3. Can’t believe this is a factory color! Perhaps it’s the pictures, but there’s nothing red about this, to my eye. That’s straight up pink, or maybe even magenta … not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  4. 0 to south beach in 6.4 seconds

    This car should have an appearance in a VH1 special titled “that’s so ’90s!”

  5. I love this color. Seriously. There is nothing wrong with it. To make it even more unique it should have burgundy cloth seats. Porsche always had and still has the most exciting colors and they even give you the opportunity to order paint and leather to sample.
