1994 Porsche 968 Cabriolet

Description

The Porsche 968 was made from 1992 to 1995 and was the final evolution of a line of water-cooled front-engined, rear wheel drive models begun almost 20 years earlier with the 924. Taking over the entry-level position in the company line-up from the 944 with which it shared about 20% of its parts. The 968 was Porsche’s last new front-engined vehicle before the introduction of the Cayenne SUV in 2003.

 

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 litres with 104 mm bore, 88 mm stroke and producing 237bhp. 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 fourth-largest four-cylinder ever offered in a production car up to that time. A new 6-speed manual transmission replaced the 944’s old 5-speed, and Porsche’s dual-mode Tiptronic automatic became an available option. The VarioCam timing system was first introduced on the 968 and would later become a feature of the Type 993 air-cooled six-cylinder engine.

 

This lovely 968 Cabriolet is presented in Amazon Green with luxurious black leather interior and green piping.  This wonderful 6-speed manual example comes with a very comprehensive service history including recent works covering new clutch assembly and a complete electrics overhaul. A fantastic opportunity to acquire one of Porsche’s last front-engined grand tourers.
