I believe this is a first for me. While I’ve written about the 968 previously, I’m fairly certain it’s never been the Club Sport. They’re rare so that’s not too surprising, but still given how often I’m on the lookout for early-90s Porsches you’d think at some point it’d have happened.
Like most any Porsche Club Sport model, the 968CS was a lightened and more potent version of the standard 968. While the 968 never was the most popular of Porsches they remain a lovely design even today and the Club Sport itself a highly sought after model. It was one of the favorite cars of our former editor, Paul. He featured them as frequently as was possible given their rare nature and the fact that they couldn’t be imported into the US. With it now being 25 years since they were first produced that problem should be more easily surmountable. If these were one of the cars of your dreams, then here’s your shot at one of these rare machines:
A Speed Yellow 1993 Porsche 968 Club Sport, currently residing in Canada, with 47,224 miles on it. This 968CS originally was delivered in Japan. There’s no word in the ad on when it made its way to North America, but it is said to come with extensive records so hopefully prospective buyers can work out those details.
Those of us not in the United Kingdom might have been a bit bummed by the steering wheel location on the Porsche 968 Club Sport we featured last week, especially since it was painted in a rare hue. But here we have another well-kept 968CS that has popped up for sale in Münster, Germany. It might not be as eye-catching as the example we saw for sale in England, but in some ways, white speaks to the purity of this machine. It was built with one purpose in mind: driving pleasure.
It’s been almost 20 years since the last one rolled off the production line, but I think it’s safe to say that the Porsche 968 has aged well. This was the end of the line for the water cooled, front engined four cylinder formula. These models were slightly derided for not being a true Porsche in their day, but as time has marched on they’re gaining their fair share of praise, most notably for being a track day hero. Still, these sports cars are a bit of a dark horse with collectors, making them a reasonable bargain for those seeking precision Stuttgart engineering.
While neither of the cars we’re about to feature could be considered bargains, they are interesting varieties not normally seen on our shores. The first 968 we’ll take a look at is one of my favorite Porsches of all time, the 968CS, or Club Sport.
