Coupe Week: 1993 Porsche 968

$_4 (1)

We’ve saved the best for last for Coupe Week here at GCFSB. Porsche is a company with a colorful history. These days, though, not much emerges from Stuttgart that captures my imagination like the sports cars of my youth. Call me nostalgic, but I don’t aspire to own an SUV with an turbo badge on its rump, no matter how fast or capable it is. Then again, I am attracted to the odd special edition 911 and the new Cayman GT4 that recently dropped is rather tasty with its inclusion of a clutch pedal.

Always one to explore the hypotheticals, what if Porsche continued to develop some of the platforms of their past? The front engine, four cylinder experiment ended after an almost two decade run in 1995 with the 968 Coupe and Cabriolet. This was an extremely versatile platform, giving us everything from basic 924s to the beastly 944 Cup Cars of the late 1980s. This 968 Coupe for sale in Miami strikes a good balance between collector piece and high mileage runner and has the desirable 6-speed manual gearbox.

The 968 is one of those cars on my perpetual radar, mainly because they have gone underappreciated for years. Being a Philadelphian, I relate strongly to the underdog. If ever a Porsche deserved more attention, it was the ultimate expression of this formula that we first saw emerge in the mid 1970s. We’ve seen the 928GTS take off in value and early 928s are starting to move, as well. Sure, there were more 968s produced than the 928GTS, but in comparison the 911s, these are relatively uncommon. The last time I saw a 968 on the street was about 6 months ago and before that, I can’t remember. I’m hoping I can get my hands on one of these coupes before its too late, but given my notoriously bad timing in life, I’m not holding out hope.

  1. I could not agree with your sentiment more; I am in the same neighborhood both figuratively, and literally. I doubt that I will ever be able to make Porsche a reality, but a 968 like this one would be right in my cross hairs if I could.

  2. $18K is not bad if it’s well sorted out. These are rare to come by, so there really isn’t a said market price. $10-25K range? The key is finding out which maintenance items have been taken care of, including clutch waterpump timing belts etc.
