Perhaps one of the more unusual 944 S2's to come to market this year. A curiously well
specced example in a shade little seen on a Porsche. First point to note is the colour
does not translate to the screen. What you see below as a light blue is actually a
moody pearlescent turquoise blue. Trouble is, digital cameras don't do turquoise, they
see blue or green dependent on the more prominent colour, in this instance the camera
sees blue but this is not a true reflection of the colour...

Enthusiast owned by a Porsche GB member, this show car formed part of the display and
parade lap at the recent Silverstone Classic event where it was very well received. Has
also been featuring in classic vintage rallies and events and is known within the PorscheGB
circle with the most recent 2 previous keepers being enthusiast members of the club.

Often quoted but rarely accurate, this car is in very nice condition top to bottom and will
suit the fussiest enthusiast. Couple of thousand spent at Promax Motorsport, known to be the
No.1 944 specialists in the UK, on belts rollers water pump + much more noted below, fine
fettling. This vehicle is more or less unmarked and with a pristine interior showing little wear on
any component. Presents with a super clean engine bay, the engine has been stripped down
and rebuilt and the actual engine block itself has been detailed and all ancillaries too, quite
an eyeful and money well spent!

This 944 drives absolutely perfectly.
A number of visits to Promax this year have ironed out any imperfections.
The timing belts and balance belts rollers and water pump were replaced by Promax to the tune of
over £2000. A further £1400 has been spent replacing suspension bushes and castor mounts
and any other item showing even the slightest wear. The drive is nothing short of fantastic. As
such, it inspects at 100% and has a clean bill of health from the most respected 944 specialists
in the UK.

Finished in unmarked Tuerkisblau (translates to Turquoise Blue), the camera fails to
capture the exact colour of Turquoise, not to be confused with the similar Tahoe
Blue, turquoise is a far more exotic shade with hues of Aqua. The paintwork is
unblemished and the paint finish of the highest quality, wonderfully smooth like a
billiard ball with no textured orange peel. Stoneguards are present on each arch
and are as new. The sills are in perfect order inside and out, there is no corrosion
whatsoever on this car.
All rubber items are pristine with no perishing and around the glass, the rubbers and
window scrapers appear as new. Correct number plate mounts are present.
Badging and decals to the rear are new items of this year. Simply cannot be faulted
there is nothing negative in the slightest, this is a real stunner and will satisfy the fussiest
keeper. Windscreen was replaced recently (due to a solitary chip) so there is zero
delamination or clouding around the edges. Ready to show.

The immaculate theme continues aboard, the cream colour is called Linen. Linen
leather comfort chairs are piped in contrasting navy blue and are in as new condition
with no sign of wear. These were reconolised this year by a proper Connolly craftsman.
These are electric and all directions for both chairs are in working order. Carpets are
lovely and clean with no dirt or stains and the LCD clock is in working order.
Steering wheel and gear shifter in navy blue to match the dashboard and seat pipe
are in great order. A new set of fitted carpet mats finish the floors nicely. All the switches
in front of the shifter have been renewed due to the logos fading on the older parts.
Scores very highly again.

Original Design '90 alloys are in perfect order with no marks or kerbs
Nice coloured crest wheel centres and the lightweight wheel bolts are correct satin
black with no patina or decay. Each wheel is wearing a brand new Continental tyre,
the correct set up for the car..

205/50/16 Front

Peer inside the wheels to see lovely re-finished calipers and almost fresh discs, top marks
again, there is no room for improvement as you would expect from an example of this

Engine bay
Stunning, those dark photos do not do it justice. The engine has been rebuilt and at this
time fully detailed. By this I mean the engine block itself is finished in lovely bright silver
and all around the inner wings and bulkhead is super clean. Refinished mounts and intake
manifold in high gloss, the rocker finished in silver with red. The labour of love is obvious. No
dirt in sight with lovely paintwork as fresh as the rest of the car. Top marks again.

Lift carpet and the boot floor and wheel well appears as
new. The load cover is in working order, there is a complete toolkit and the original factory
suitcase-style air compressor. The spare wheel is unused.

Potentially one of the sweetest S2's in the land, we believe you will simply not find a better
condition or nicer looking one. The colour is unique and very rare. The level of detail in this
car is sublime with things like switches, glass, seals and gaskets replaced for no reason other
than patina. A real enthusiasts car that has been cherished, lavished and finely fettled by a
mature owner with little regard for expense. An item of passion to keep in your garage and
be very proud of. The mileage should be largely ignored. If we could ask more for this then
we certainly would, it really is that good.
