The 968 occupies a strange space in the Porsche world. Limited in production, good looking, well-built and with good chassis dynamics and performance, it should have all of the hallmarks of a collector car in today’s market. Many prominent automobile publications have bashed you over the head with that, too – it’s not just me banging on here. Petrolicious posts an article (the same one, usually…) seemingly every week about the Porsche 968 Club Sport, Hemmings has repeatedly said it’s the best of the breed, and Hagerty told you to get on board in 2018 and buy one. And when Bring a Trailer sold one in late 2017 at $36,250, it seemed 2018 was poised to be the year of exploding values on the 968.
But it wasn’t. Bring a Trailer has, so far to date, failed to present a match to that one-off. It’s not for lack of trying – quite a few have come up since, including a Club Sport, but they’re all below $30,000. For reference, they’re selling at about the same price as E30 325is – and I’d argue that they’re a lot nicer. So here we are in 2021, wondering exactly where the values on these cars will head. Today’s clean Guards Red coupe is priced right below that 2017 sale from BaT – so is it a deal?

1992 Porsche 968. Only 595 ’92 Coupes Sold in the US Market! Vin WP0AA2962NS820662. 51,739 Miles. 6-Speed Manual. Guards Red. Black Leather Interior. Clean Carfax. Clean Title. Timing Belt Service Done Recently. Books, Manuals, Partial Service Records, 2 Keys, Tools, Air-Compressor, Spare and a Jack. This great looking 968 comes in the classic colors of Guards Red on Black Leather interior, and the overall condition of this Porsche is quite nice. The car was registered new in Bethlehem, PA, where it remained until 2011. In September of that year, and with little less than 23K miles on the odometer, the car was purchased by a PCA member from the Los Angeles area, where it remained under his care until earlier this month. The car now resides on the showroom floor of our dealership in Oakwood, GA. The Guards Red paint on this 968 is very shiny, and from the photos you can see how emanating and presentable this car really is. It’s definitely a stand out on our country Georgia roads. The Black Leather interior is equally nice, and everything has been nicely preserved. Everything is fully operational, including the AC and the sunroof. The stock radio has been upgraded with a modern JVC unit, which sounds great. The stock OEM 17” Porsche wheels are fitted with Yokahama Advan Sport tires which are barely 2 years old and have plenty of tread. The performance of this 968 is spot on and nothing misses a beat! The essential timing belt service has been completed at 42K miles, which also included a new water pump and new front discs and pads. The 968 market has exploded, and these cars are rapidly climbing in demand/price. Low mile examples like this one will make for a great investment, and for a very reliable and fun to drive classic Porsche. Collector car financing available at competitive rates.

Guards Red is a great look on these 968s, and its no surprise that it’s the second most popular color they were delivered to North America in. The thing is, that number is still incredibly small; some 548 brought over here in that color means that seeing one of these new was about as unlikely as seeing a Phoenix Yellow M3 coupe – read: pretty infrequently. Somewhat ironically, the two 968 coupes I’ve driven were both this color; one back in the 90s when it was effectively new, and one in the early 2000s at Lime Rock Park. Both times I came away enamored; they might not be as punchy as the Turbo, but they’ve got a lot of grunt and they look great. This one is very nice; lower mileage, timing belt done, clean throughout, clean history from what’s disclosed. It’s priced at the top of the 968 Coupe market, but then it probably should be. This car doesn’t have the appeal of the original M3, but it’s probably a smarter choice for most and offers a similar experience in a lot of ways at a fraction of the price.
