About the 944 S

Nov 13, 2013

The S version only existed for two years, 1987 and 1988, 12.000 where built, but 8.000 of those were sent to the US market, leaving about 4.000 for the rest of the world and about 2.800 ended up staying in Europe. Only 7 were sold in Portugal 1. The S has a 16 valve engine with an extra 30 horsepower than the regular version (190 hp).

It is not the most valuable or desirable 944, those are the Turbo and the unofficially named Turbo S with 220 and 250 horsepower respectively, but it’s pretty rare.
