Cars are much more than the sum of their parts. They are touchstones in life and can bring back fond memories of years gone by. It’s the cars that hail from the early 1990s that do this for me, right around the time I was learning how to drive. Before the days of the Internet, I would peruse the pages of car magazines and lust after the Porsches I’d come across from the period. Especially the 968. There was something about this car that hooked me. A lot of the attraction was due to its rarity in comparison to the ubiquitous 911, being a sort of “alternative” Porsche but keeping the hallmarks of what drew people to the brand. Thankfully, the 968 is a relatively affordable proposition today and remains high on the list for me. When I find myself in a situation with more plentiful parking, this could very well be the brother to my R53 MINI Cooper S.
John from flÃ¼ssig magazine brought this Wimbledon Green 968 Coupe to our attention. Much like the 1993 928GTS we featured last month, this is one of those eye catching colors from the heyday of colorful Porsches. After speaking with Jeff Coe, 968 guru and owner of the Mint Green 968 Cabriolet, he learned this particular 968 Coupe was one of nine produced in this color combination with these options.

The ad copy for this car is a bit sparse and there’s no mention of history or records, so a thorough PPI would be in order for anyone considering it. However, the condition seems consistent for the mileage and it’s not everyday that you see a 968 in Wimbledon Green. It might not be to everyone’s taste, but I think it is an attractive, period correct color. If everything checks out, the price on this one is rather reasonable, making me kick myself that I don’t have an extra parking spot at the present time.
