THE PORSCHE 944 S2: 3.0 LITERS, 208 BHP.
Also in true Porsche tradition, the new 944 S2 engine's impressive specifications are derived directly from Porsche's successful racing heritage: high durability forged pistons; a new block pattern air intake system for optimum throttle response; active, regulated engine compartment ventilation with 3-speed blower; large, externally mounted light alloy oil cooler with thermostat for optimum engine temperature regulation; and modified digital motor electronics. Maximum torque of 207 lb-ft is reached at 4100 rpm; the engine's 208 bhp maximum power is achieved at 5800 rpm with the redline at 6500 rpm. The Porsche 944 S2 owner can depend on the balance of their automobile being fully compatable with the new high output engine. The suspension, transmission, competition tested four-piston brake system with ram air cooling, shock absorbers and stabilizers are borrowed directly from the famed 944 Turbo. All 944 features are standard, and include protective side mouldings.
