Introduced in 1982 the Porsche 944 shared the same platform as the 924, but with far greater interior styling, its more muscular body with flared wheel arches (similar to the 924 Carrera GT) and a wider choice of engines all of which were developed in house, therefore making the 944 a true Porsche.
Porsche continued to develop the car throughout its life and had intended to carry on with major changes in a 944 S3 model, but develops eventually saw the 944 being replaced by the 968 model. With a both Coupe and Cabriolet body types available and engines in both naturally aspirated or Turbo the 944 saw many changes and the numbers built reflected the cars popularity.
Supplied new to AFN Porsche (the original Porsche concessionaire before Porsche Cars GB Ltd) this Porsche 944 was specified to a high standard and comes with the following specification:
- 3.0litre 211bhp 4 cylinder
- 5 Speed Manual Gearbox
- Finished in Cobalt Metallic Blue
- Electric Hood - recently replaced and in top condition.
- Electric Adjustable Sports Seats - Leather interior in immaculate condition.
- Adjustable Steering Wheel
- Electric Mirrors / Windows
- Headlamp Washers
- Porsche 16” Design 90 Alloys - recently refurbished
- Side Mouldings
- Original supplied with Blaupunkt Symphony stereo - now JVC with iPod connectivity
- Body integrated Fog Lights
The exterior of the 944 is in excellent condition and the metallic Cobalt Blue presents really well. Panel gaps are consistent around the car, lenses are free from damage, the original D90 alloys have been refurbished and the recently fitted hood is in top condition with a clear rear screen and her original blue tonneau stored in the boot.
Unlike many 944’s this S2 Cabriolet was originally ordered with figure hugging Sports Seats with the option-sheet being ticked further with the original owner specifying a full blue and electrically adjusted interior. The seats are immaculate, free from any scuffing and they provide the perfect driving position for either spirited driving or a relaxed country cruise. Interior electrics all work, as to be expected with a Porsche, she has a new set of over mats and is fitted with a JVC CD / Stereo headhunt, with phone connectivity.
Mechanically the 944 is in great condition. She has just over 109k miles (averaging less than 5k per annum) and starts on the button, the big 4 cylinder settling down nicely and showing great oil pressure. Out on the open road the torque of the 3litre engine comes into its own and original reports suggest the 3litre could reach 0-60 in 7sec and a top speed of 150mph, figures that would concern many a Turbo owner!
The 944 is a great car to drive and has obviously been cosseted and well cared for by previous owners. The supporting Porsche Club G.B history folder is HUGE with 20 previous MOTs confirming her mileage, previous Tax Discs, a full dealer pack including all supplemententary booklets and service book detailing 15 service stamps (ALL Porsche or Porsche Independents) and a further 9 stamps for fluid / belt / condition checks. We have also carried out a recent oil, filter, plugs service and although the car has done little mileage over the last few years we have also changed the timing / balance shaft belts in accordance with the Porsche service schedule. She has previously had a tracker fitted (requires reactivation) is fitted with an immobiliser and the folder contains invoices in excess of £10k! She comes with 2 Keys, Immobiliser fobs and the original Valet Key (nearly always lost).
Without doubt one of the best presented Porsche 944 S2 3.0 Cabriolets and coming with the all important supporting history file this car looks stunning with the hood up or down and is ready to enjoy the summer months either cruising to the south of France or enjoying local outings or being displayed at classic car shows.

I would like to extend my thanks to you both (Mark & Carl) for a smooth and totally hassle free purchase I made with you recently. I was on the hunt for my very first classic and from the first time I read your write up on-line I was captured, there were so many other B’s on-line but I kept returning to the stunning black one at Absolute Classics. Being an ex-pat living in Denmark I was relying on finding a car I could drive back and with Brexit looming just around the corner and not wanting to risk a no-deal scenario I took no chances as waiting could potentially cost me a whole lot more.
I contacted Mark at Absolute and told him of my plans, we agreed on a deposit and the car was taken off line for a week, so that I could make the necessary travel arrangements. I took a leap of faith and traveled to Lincolnshire and was picked up at the rail station in a lovely Jaguar. On arrival at Absolute Classics the black MGB was parked out in sun looking very sharp and after a tour of their other vehicles I could now have a good crawl around the B. It lived up to the description and was even better than I had expected, we struck a deal and Mark rushed off to the Post office to get the car taxed, before I began my trip home.
Mark and Carl had supplied me with some spare parts for roadside repairs and I set off towards Copenhagen, Mark thought i was bonkers! The weather was fantastic on the entire route and I could drive all the way with the top down. I drove down to London and spent the night with relatives, the day after I set course to Dover and drove up through France, Belgium, Holland and spent another night in Germany with more relatives. The next morning I pointed the B northward towards Denmark, kept at a steady pace throughout not wanting to stress the 40 year old vehicle too much and by late afternoon I arrived home in Denmark after covering over 1000 miles without a single hic-cup.
This car and the guys at Absolute have certainly lived up to my expectations, they go that extra mile for you, are trustworthy, and they keep their word and I would definitely recommend Absolute Classics to others who are contemplating purchasing a classic.
