"Living with one"

Having always aspired to owning a Porsche I read and sought many an opinion before purchasing one I can, hand on heart say its one of the best descisions i've made. The S2 is the last in the model range benefitting from a 3 litre engine developing 211 bhp. This makes the car capable of 0-60 in 6.1 secs and a top speed in excess of 150mph.The handling of the car, being rear wheel drive with nearly 50/50 weight distribution is first class. It takes a brave driver to push it to its limit ! The driving position gives you confidence to use the cars power with good alround visibility. The car is also quite practical for a sports car, being blessed with a large luggage space to the rear, easily accomodating two golf bags and other items of luggage. The Downside to owning an s2 are Insurance costs, fuel consumption and the price of replacement tyres. Porsche as a company offer wonderfull after sales service and can't be too helpfull with all aspects of porsche ownership. If your looking for supercar performance with everyday usability and German reliability then a Porsche 944 S2 is the car for you .
