Any time I see an ad stating that a car is the nicest one available I like to imagine it being from an extremely conscientious seller who has looked through all of the available inventory and come to that conclusion. He even frequently checks for additional listings just to make sure his car remains the best one available and if not provides an appropriate update. This probably isn’t what happens, but it’s funny to me and makes looking at cars more entertaining. Is this the nicest 944 S2 on eBay? It very well could be! It certainly looks pretty good.
As the days have begun to turn colder I’m starting to reminiscence about the days of sunny, warm weather driving, and that makes this Cabriolet even more appealing. It is the promise of joyful open-top cruising. There are a lot of Porsches you could spend money on in order to achieve that goal, but if you desire something from an older vintage the 944 and 968 seem to offer some of the most promise for fewer dollars.
Here we have a Baltic Blue Metallic 1990 Porsche 944S2 Cabriolet, located in Florida, with just 20,843 miles on it. I don’t know that the 944 is as pretty as a 968, but its lines are quite clean and classic and when looking good provide just the right elegance to balance its sporting pretensions. I obviously like 911s quite a bit, but the 911 Cabriolet’s lines don’t always seem to work as well as they do on Porsche’s front-engined cars. So if you want the top down a 944 could be both a less expensive and better looking option. Maybe even the better option.
I have not been shy about my feelings on the Porsche 944 S2 cars. You get the the looks and darn near the performance of the turbo cars without many of the headaches. There are fewer of these running around than their turbo counterparts, even fewer with low miles.
Form the seller –

It recently had all the AC overhaul it has new springs and shocks, belts and everything that has needed doing mechanically has been done. The body is straight with no rust.”
One owner, check. Low miles, check. Immaculate condition, CHECK! All labels, the tool kit, the interior, paint, and engine compartment are darn near perfect. That interior, let’s call it linen in color is really hard to keep clean and it looks flawless. There is just a great deal to like here.
Even better it is available with no reserve, this S2 will sell. The eBay community must be excited as well, thus far there have been 41 bids with a current bid at $12,350. This is a $14-14.5k car all day long, I will be curious to see if potential buyers feel the same way.
