And I thought the forum was self isolating........
 
they were getting a little expensive, my buddies 968 Tip Cab was £46k no wonder they did not sell many, that's quattro TT money today 30 years later

I think a lot were left unsold, my K plate 964 was sat for over a year before it was sold and the last of the 944s were also hanging around for a long time. It was a bad time for Porsche until the Boxster was released. Also had an SE, nice but not a lot of difference between that and the S2 except for a 968 steering wheel, coilovers and the chip, oh and the decals of which I have a spare set somewhere.

997 4S
944 S2 Cab;
964 C2 - Sold;
944 SE - Sold;
944 Turbo - Sold;
944 Lux - Sold;

I recall from 1991 (ish) that when the 968 came out the where many rumours circulating that Porsche Centres were discounting the stock of 944's to the tune of £10,000.   This did not go down well at all with those that had just paid the full brochure price just a few weeks previously.
 
A lot of goodwill and longstanding customers were lost to other makes as a result.

Blimey, it wasn't long (After release) before the 968 had to be cut on price as that wasn't selling either. They slashed the price by a fair margin stuck some bucket seats in, CS badges and some clever marketing and got rid of them a bit easier!
 
Maybe they should of stuck with the original plan to call the revised car the 944 S3

My lowly 968 Coupe cost £36,000 in 1992, not surprised they were hard to sell
