Classic Car Overview
AUTOMOBILE road test drove the whole crop of 1990 944 models and declared the S2 the best choice for U.S. buyers, summing up with, "And so it is that the 944 S2 is now the better choice for American roads, horsepower figures be damned. The S2 revs more quickly than any Porsche this side of a 928, producing instant power off the line unlike the Turbo lags and demands fewer around-town downshifts in the bargain." In the end, the S2 was the only version sold in North America during the last two years of production in 1991 and 1992. Nearly 20,000 total 944 S2 models were built in both coupe and cabriolet form (several thousand fewer than Turbo models), but fewer than 700 found remain in the U.S., making them among the rarest 944 variants to be found today. The 944 S2 was introduced in 1989 powered by a new three-liter, normally aspirated engine. At the time of its debut, it was the largest four-cylinder power plant in series production. The S2 brought increased power output (over 50 hp per cylinder) to the model, offered an excellent torque curve, and was capable of almost 150 mph.
Not only did the new model feature an integrated front bumper, the S2 made a cabriolet configuration available for the first time in the 944 range. Interestingly, the contract to build the 944 S2 was won by the American Sunroof Company. The windshield was lower than on the coupe, and a new tail-end treatment was utilized. Porsche even boasted the 944 Cabriolet was as quiet as the coupe with the top up. Once again, Porsche had managed to create a desirable open-top variant of its popular road-going sports car. Production of the S2 ended in 1991 together with the entire 944 line.
