ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
This 944 S2 four cylinder 3.0 16v engine produces 220bhp at 6900rpm as verified on a rolling road, a slight increase of 9bhp more than a standard car. Maintained religiously by Addspeed Performance Cars Ltd, the number of invoices and expenditure will reassure the next owner of the care lavished on this car to provide faultless performance. Expect the factory quoted 0-62mph of 7.1 seconds and a top speed of 149mph to be better thanks to more power and less weight. The engine bay is very clean. The 5-speed gearbox provides positive gear changes thanks to a fitted short-shift kit and the clutch feel is beautifully weighted.

All owner’s manuals, service book and guides are contained in the original leather pouch. The car is supplied with two keys and Porsche immobiliser tags. To complete this fun package is a non-age-related 944 private registration number.
