Seems like a pretty nice car for under $5k but are these things just perpetual money pits or something? Anyways, just thought I'd share.Originally Posted by Craigslist SellerTime to sell my 1989 944s2
Ill start with my background with 944's. Ive owned a 1983 944, 1986 Turbo, 1999 996 Carrera, and then this 944s2. Ive driven AT LEAST 20 944's either through pre-purchase test drives for me or my friends, or as a valet. There were only 3,000 and change 944s2 coupes made in its 3 year production, and its white color makes this one even rarer. This S2 handles far better than anything you can imagine. This car will make a turn as tightly as you can turn the wheel without a single screech from the tires. With its 3.0 liter inline 4 cylinder (still the largest production 4 cyl) It provides tons of torque along with its 208 horsepower. This car is also very light and is the perfect car for a driving enthusiast. I basically know every inch and every quirky thing about these cars, so Ill address most of them in this ad. I treat my cars as if they were my children. The car has high miles 242,000 with 3 folders of records each at least an inch thick. Records include all maintenance from 40,000 miles till now. including every oil change dated and recorded. I have receipts for EVERYTHING! These motors have been known to run upwards of 400k miles. My car is routinely inspected. Here are the specs:
New tires 16/40/225's
Rims plastidipped black but can be returned to factory silver in the matter of 20 minutes
GT3 vinyl's (also can be removed easily)
lowered around 2 inches, but clears every speedbump.
Weight taken out of the rear(sound deadening/rear baby seats) but have them if desired
Hardwired for radar detector
alpine deck/CD player
all windows tinted besides windshield
Autopower 4 point roll-bar
Leda performance struts/Hypercoil fully adjustable Coilovers ($2000 setup)
RECARO race seat
Autopower 5-point harnesses on both seats. factory belts also installed for convenience.
BORLA 3-inch cat-back exhaust
Fire extinguisher installed in passenger cabin, just for some race regulations. never used of course haha!
Fully rebuilt brakes with steel braided lines
Much more, just too much to remember. Again, I have all receipts and records. The car had a timing belt job around 30,000 miles ago. It shifts smoothly every time. A few small hairline cracks in the dash ( an issue with EVERY 944). No separation in the rear glass to its seal. It doesn't leak any oil or fluids. I brought it to one PCA autocross in my time owning it, and was surpassing the times of most 911 turbos there. Its truly a handling dream car.
