Seller: botswana1978 (377) 98.2%, Location: Haywards Heath, Ships to: GB, US, AU, Item: 324169992865 For the 1987 model year, the 944 S (the S being the abbreviation of Super) was introduced. The 944 S featured a high performance naturally aspirated, dual-overhead-cam 16-valve 190 PS (140 kW; 187 hp) version of the 2.5 L engine (M44/40) featuring a self-adjusting timing belt tensioner. This marked the first use of four-valves-per-cylinder heads and DOHC in the 944, derived from the 928 S4 featuring a redesigned camshaft drive, a magnesium intake tract/passages, magnesium valve cover, larger capacity oil sump, and revised exhaust system. The alternator capacity was 115 amps. The wheel bearings were also strengthened and the brake servo action was made more powerful. Floating 944 calipers were standard, but the rear wheel brake circuit pressure regulator from the 944 turbo was used. Small '16 Ventiler' script badges were added on the sides in front of the body protection mouldings. Performance figures included 0-100 km/h (62 mph) being achieved in 6.5 seconds (Best) and a 232 km/h (144 mph) top speed due to a 1,296 kg (2,857 lb) curb weight. It also featured an improved programmed Bosch Digital Motronic 2 Computer/DME with dual knock sensors for improved fuel performance for the higher 10.9:1 compression ratio cylinder head. Like the 944 Turbo, the 944 S received progressive springs for improved handling, larger front and rear anti-roll bars, revised transmission and gearing to better suit the 2.5 L DOHC engine's higher 6,800 rpm rev limit. Dual safety air bags, limited-slip differential, and ABS braking system were optional on the 944 S.A Club Sport touring package (M637) was available as was the lightweight 16-inch CS/Sport Fuchs 16x7 and 16x9 forged alloy wheels. This version was raced in Canada, Europe and in the IMSA Firehawk Cup Series held in the U.S. Production was only during 1987 and 1988. It was superseded in 1989 by the 'S2' version. The 1987 944 S' power-to-weight ratio was such that it was able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds thus matching the acceleration of its newer larger displacement 3.0 L 944 S2 sibling.I have owned since 2012 there is a large history file from previous owner including photos. The car has had lot of money spent on it see below. The exterior is in good condition as is engine and gearbox etc. The drivers seat needs a slight repair to side. The car is SORN at the moment and has no MOT. I have young children, and it is no longer suitable for us and I cannot afford to keep as a second car. I have just spent £1750.00 on new steering rack, steering pump (new) and filter. New battery and complete set of belts. The car has a recent alternator and new belts, less than a few 1000 miles, new brakes and brake lines. Oil change and oil filter, Inner and outer track rod ends. The struts which hold up the rear hatch are new. Drives really well with new steering rack, 10 miles use. There is other work I have done and forgotten. Please contact me with any questions, car is in Pevensey East Sussex at the moment. You will need to do some work for the MOT, how much it costs will be dependant on what you do and how. I have one offer of part exchange which I am considering. I would prefer to sell to someone who would like the car. There are apparently only 136 left. https://petrolicious.com/articles/the-porsche-944s-isnt-a-car-its-a-way-of-lifeOn 21-May-20 at 11:22:13 BST, seller added the following information: The car was restored by a previous owner about 10 years ago milage was 31,000 less at that point, I have owned since 2012. The interior is ok needs a bit of TLC but is original. Car is completely original no mods. I have photos of the restoration. The issue is the MOT hopefully I have made clear in the text, you can speak to the garage the car drives very well it has just had £1750 spent on it as you can read. Any time and money you spend will be an investment, it is a great car to drive. The engine pulls like it should, though as I have two younger children I do behave myself. Condition: Used
