Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale WITHOUT RESERVE and SOLD to the highest bidder June 2nd – 4th, 2017 at Russo and Steele’s 5th Annual Newport Beach California Auction. Please contact us for more information. The Porsche 968 is a sports car made by Porsche AG from 1992 to 1995. It was the final evolution of a line of water-cooled front-engined rear wheel drive models. Like the 944, the 968 was sold as both a coupe and a convertible. The 968’s basic styling was an evolution on that of the outgoing 944, itself based on the earlier 924. In an attempt to create a family resemblance between models and associate it with the luxury 928 gran turismo, elements were borrowed from its upscale sibling. Others included a swooping headlamp design inspired by the 959 later incorporated in the Type 993 911. The 968 was powered by an updated version of the 944’s straight-four engine, now displacing 3.0 L with 104 mm bore, 88 mm stroke and producing 240 PS 237 bhp; 177 kW. Changes to the 968’s powertrain also included the addition of Porsche’s then-new VarioCam variable valve timing system, newly optimized induction and exhaust systems, a dual-mass flywheel, and updated engine management electronics among other more minor revisions. The 968’s engine was the third-largest four-cylinder ever offered in a production car up to that time. This example is equipped with the extremely rare 6-speed manual transmission. Out of the 681 Units allocated for the US in it’s entire production run only 168 were believed to be made with this extremely desirable transmission. The benefit of a full mechanical and body on restoration and a mere 20,000 miles driven since. This can be your ultimate fun in the sun affordable yet rare Porsche.
