Porsche’s front-engined sports coupes always have remained somewhat on the sideline and received short shrift from many enthusiasts. Some of that surely is due to their disappearance from the market two decades ago and the continued presence and success of the 911 of course does nothing to help in this regard either. On the second-hand market the 928 commands decent respect, especially a manual-transmission GTS, but Porsche’s 4-cylinder models haven’t yet been shown as much love. On the one hand, that’s a shame since examples like this 1994 Porsche 968 for sale in New Orleans feature some of the best dynamic handling traits in the Porsche stable. These cars were blessed with impeccable balance and as the culmination of the 4-cylinder line the 968 offers the best of what Porsche made available in this design. On the other hand, the market’s relative lack of care for these means that prices remain much lower than those of a similar vintage 911 and enable Porsche enthusiasts who do find great joy from these machines to get into good examples for reasonable cost.
CLICK FOR DETAILS: 1994 Porsche 968 on Excellence Magazine
Engine: 3.0 liter inline-4
Transmission: 6-speed manual
Mileage: 112,000 mi
6spd manual. Factory LSD. 3rd owner from new. All original, all stock. Almost all records since new including original window sticker. Owners manual, tool kit and air compressor. Never wrecked – never tracked. Always garaged – even at work. All major service completed within the past 12 months (including water pump, tensioners, belts, chain, seals, rod bearing set, engine mounts, etc…). Hankook Ventus mounted 10 months ago – 4K miles on them. Very good driver. Body 8/10, interior 8/10, mechanically 9/10. Amazon green. Cashmere and black interior. Drive anywhere. PPI’s welcome.
This particular 968 comes in the rather fetching combination of Amazon Green Pearl with Cashmere interior and it presents pretty well though we lack the detail photos, especially of the interior, to make a thorough assessment. But there certainly don’t appear to be any glaring issues and with its maintenance history available there should be resources available to interested buyers to make an informed decision. All together for a 6-speed equipped 968 the asking price is pretty reasonable at $15K. It’s a little higher than where some other examples have sold, but those we’ve come across also tended to have a few more miles. If the seller comes down on the price just a little bit I think this should make its new owner quite happy!
