Own­ing a 944 S2 Cabri­o­let

Classic Cars (UK) - - The Big Test -

‘I bought it sight un­seen from Scot­land in Au­gust – I’d never owned a Porsche be­fore,’ re­veals 944 S2 owner Gary Boyd. ‘I buy and sell cars on a reg­u­lar ba­sis and wanted a 928, but they com­mand a lot of money th­ese days and I’d driven all over the UK and Ire­land look­ing for one only to be dis­ap­pointed.

‘I con­tacted the dealer and found out ev­ery­thing about this 944 – he put me in touch with the pre­vi­ous owner, who lived in Bris­tol, and their tes­ti­mony matched the pic­tures and de­scrip­tion so I de­cided to take a punt. It was ac­tu­ally bet­ter than ex­pected and didn’t need any­thing other than new tyres and a cou­ple of anti-roll bar bushes re­plac­ing.

‘ The one thing I was told by eporsche that I was mad not to check for rust in the sills, but S2s don’t get af­fected as badly by this as S1s. The 944 drives bet­ter than a 928 any­way.’
