1992 Porsche 968 Cabriolet

I was pleased to see Hemmings Sports & Exotic Car prominently featured the transaxle Porsches in their latest issue. These are sports cars which are finally getting their day both in the Porsche and general collector circles. With increased respect comes an increase in values, of course. However, many of these cars are still within reach of the more modest collector, such as this 968 Cabriolet for sale in New Jersey. With well over 100,000 miles, you wouldn’t have to worry about using this Porsche as intended. Tired of the usual 911 Cabriolet? This might be the cure.

We saw a 1992 968 Cabriolet with 114,000 miles sell for $11,400 back in April 2014, so the price here is rather reasonable considering the time that has passed and the fact that this car doesn’t have that much more mileage on the odometer. Amethyst probably isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I wouldn’t turn my nose up at it, as it suits the more playful nature of the cabriolet variant. Sometimes I wonder why there is a disparity between the 911 and these transaxle Porsches. They are just as well engineered as their rear-engined brethren but offer a different means to an end.
