I used to have a 944 Turbo- 30 mpg on the way to the track, less than 10 while on the track. Then back to 30 mpg on the way back home.

I also had a 944 S2. Much better daily driver than the turbo- Low-end torque, no turbo lag, and much friendlier gearing. The Turbo is geared for the autobahn- Very tall ring & pinion.

The S2 didn't have the same gas mileage as the turbo, but it's awfully hard not to drive the turbo hard, dropping the mileage back down.

We'll see before too long how the 2.5 litre S does on gas....
