ReviewI have had a 944S2 Cabbie for 5 years now. It has been re-chipped, de-catted and tuned, the performance is fantastic. 0 60 in 5.5 secs 150 mph (just), 28 mpg, utterly reliable, everywhere you go people comment and ask what model it is. It is not just a classic - it's a master classic. INCREDIBLE VALUE AT £10,000 for the performance - it's amazing. This is the 2nd Porsche I've had, previously a 944 Lux (2,5) - junk in comparison. Insurance group 20, but only £250 fully comp!! There is not another car made I would swap this for, not even a Carrera S 4 - simply too expensive to run. 911's not in the same ballpark, slow and unreliable, overpriced and uncomfortable. A very happy man!
Best FeaturesDrop dead gorgeous. Looks, performance, reliability, mpg, badge, brakes, 4 seats. Convertible. Water cooled, unprecedented value for money. Just about everything really.
Worst FeaturesDe-cat exhaust - adds incredible torque special plugs, re-chip engine program and air filter provide 964 matched performance, quicker than 968. Turbo style wheels from 911 completely change appearance. Remove convertible hood motor, even quicker! Just incredible!
