Owning a 944 S2 Cabriolet
‘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.’
