In 1987 the 944 S was added to the Porsche line up. The 944 S was a high performance, naturally aspirated, dual over head cam, 16 valve, 187HP version of the 2.5 liter engine featuring a self adjusting timing belt tensioner. This marked the use of the first four valve per cylinder, DOHC in the 944. Small “16 Ventiler” script badges were added on the sides in front of the side body protective moldings. Performance figures included 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) being achieved in 6.5 seconds and a top speed of232 km/h (144 mph) due to 2852 pound curb weight. It also featured Bosch Digital Motronic 2 Computer DME with duel knock sensors for improved fuel performance for the higher 10.9:1 compression ratio like the 944 Turbo, the 944S received progressive springs for improved handling, larger front and rear anti roll bars, upgraded brakes, revised transmission and gearing to better suite the2.5 L DOHC engine's higher 6800 rpm rev limit. Production of the 944S was 1987 and 1988 only with only 3312 units produced in 1987 for the U.S. market.
We are pleased to offer this very exceptional 944 S. This is not your typical base 944. There are not a lot of these left and certainly not many as well preserved and maintained as this with ALL documentation from new to present.
