1989 Porsche 944S2 with 27,000 miles

What has the world come to? Are the days of the cheap 1980s cars dead? We’re in the days of $50,000 BMW M3s, $30,000 Audi Quattros, $20,000 Volkswagen GTis and $10,000 Sciroccos! And yet, there are still deals to be had, if you’re willing to look – and act, quickly. Because while the 944 Turbo and S2 have been on the “down low” for a few years, we’ve been watching clean examples rapidly appreciate, pulled up by their more expensive cousins. That’s as it should be, because frankly, of the lot, arguably the 944 Turbo is the best performance value of the 1980s, and the 944 S2 is perhaps the best all-arounder that Porsche has ever made. Those S2s are better balanced than all the previously listed cars, quicker than all of them, get better fuel mileage than all of them, and – arguably, I agree – look the best of the 944 production line. Yet the S2 has continuously been overlooked, almost taken for granted. Those days are going away, and opportunities to get a 944 S2 like today’s are going to be increasingly difficult:

Stunning Twos – 1989 and 1991 Porsche 944 S2s

Yesterday, Paul wrote up a nice looking 968 with lower miles. The problem with these low mile 968s seems to be that people ask a lot of money for them. Now granted, comparing the money that E30 M3s command compared to the 968 asking prices puts them in a less outrageous context, but compared to the prices 944 Turbo Ss or 944S2s command, they do seem out of line. Case in point is todays two stunning examples of the 968 prototype, the 944S2. Effectively the 968 was this car, restyled and with an extra cog in the gearbox. If you can deal with only 5 speeds and prefer the boxier styling of the 944s, these 944S2s are a screaming deal – for now. Let’s look at a black early example first:
