1992 Porsche 911 Turbo S2
Found in Vancouver, is a 1992 Porsche 911 Turbo S2 for $180,000 USD. This is 1 of 20 Road Legal Homologation examples built for the US Market! I have not seen one for over 10 years and it was a white one for sale in Florida for 55k. These extremely rare cars were built in conjunction with Porsche tuner Andial. These cars have a turbocharged 3.3L M30/69 flat six engine with a 5 speed manual transmission. The S2 option package included ported and polished cylinder heads, a K27 turbocharger, a larger intercooler, and revised cam profiles all of which significantly increased hp above the base Turbo.
This example is in guards red with grey leather interior. It had an engine out service in 2011 by Rothsport Racing in Sherwood, OR which included replacement of the clutch and flywheel, a turbocharger rebuild, a valve adjustment, new suspension components and more, while maintaining overall original condition (which is rare in these cars). This 964 S2 is offered with a Porsche CoA, service records, owner’s books, tools, contemporary literature, and a clean Washington State title. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Porsche history! More photos and details available by request.
The Turbo S2 was not officially issued a specific engine Type, which could have raised NHTSA scrutiny, only a modification parts list. Officially rated at 322HP, only 7HP more than the standard 315HP M30/69 3.3 liter engine – and often incorrectly speculated to be the same as the Type M30/69SL engine of the later model 1992 Turbo Leichtbau – the engine was based upon the 355HP X33 type M30/69S engine which had been an available upgrade on the 1991 Turbo from late spring 1991 (X33 option cars – 22 produced in 1991 and 170 in 1992). Although it has been referred to as Type M30/69S, that designation is ‘officially’ reserved for the X33 option which features a different parts list.
The 911 Turbo S2 parts list featured 964 cam shafts, a modified turbocharger and intercooler but retained stock cylinder heads. It differs from the X33 M30/69S WLS (Werks LeistungsSteigerung or Factory Power Increase) option which retained the stock turbo charger and intercooler but added special 930 cam shafts and modified cylinder heads. The following information on the 911 Turbo S2 is from the factory technical bulletin.
The 911 Turbo S2 engines were never officially dynomometered but the engine’s performance was heavily biased toward maximum power at high rpm, at the expense of low-end torque, which was congruent with the philosophy behind turbo charged Porsche racing engines. It is not clear if the engines received the same porting and polishing treatment of the race engines or if this labor intensive treatment was skipped as the engines otherwise had stock cylinder heads.
