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.

The lighter weight Clubsport model was offered from 1993-1995. Much of the 968 luxury-oriented equipment was removed or taken off the options list; less sound deadening material was used, electrical windows were replaced with crank-driven units, upgraded stereo systems, A/C and sunroof were still optional as on the standard Coupe and Convertible models. In addition, Porsche installed manually adjustable lightweight Recaro racing seats, revised suspension system and lowered by 20 mm for possible track use, 17-inch wheels (also slightly wider to accommodate wider tires) rather than the 16-inch as found on the Coupe and wider tires. The four-spoke airbag steering wheel was replaced with a thicker-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel with no air bag. The Club Sport has no rear seats, unlike the 2+2 CoupÃ© and was only available in Grand Prix White, black, Speed yellow, Guards red, Riviera blue or Maritime blue.

My other immediate question concerns the interior. Everything looks as I’d expect from a Club Sport, however the interior fabric and color listed on the CoA is completely different. And not only completely different from this car but completely different from any other 968CS I’ve seen. Is the CoA wrong or was this CS ordered with a very different interior? And, if so, what happened to it?
While I do love a Speed Yellow Porsche, and if any model is going to be painted Speed Yellow a Club Sport is that model, I’m not so enamored with the matching Speed Yellow wheels. But such is the nature of the 968CS. It was pretty common for the wheels to match, especially among the brighter hued variants. I think I could manage to get over it, but that is a lot of yellow. Interior questions aside, the rest of the car looks great and even those bright yellow wheels look well cared for.
Those on the lookout for rare, brightly hued, 968s might remember this ultra-low-mileage Speed Yellow 968 Carter featured last summer. With its sport seats and sport suspension it mimicked the 968CS in certain ways. It also was priced very similarly to this CS. For basically the same money I think I’d rather have the CS, but it is hard to deny the impeccable nature of that low-mileage 968. However, you couldn’t really enjoy it. This one I think you can and while $80K is a lot of money for a 968, relative to a 964 Carrera RS or a 3.2 Carrera Clubsport it’s actually quite inexpensive. In the world of rare Porsches we might even consider it a bargain.
