1994 Porsche 968 Turbo S Tribute

There are rare Porsches, and then there are rare Porsches. The 968 Turbo S is a car that very few will ever get to see and a fair amount of Porsche enthusiasts in the U.S. don’t even know exists. The ultimate streetable front-engined Turbo coupe from the end of the run, the Turbo S took the old 2.5 8V turbo inline-4 to new heights of power by utilizing the newer S2/968 3.0 block with the earlier 944 Turbo S bits on top. Power reached over 300, a healthy bump over the existing 944 turbo and 968 16v. But there were only a handful made – around 14 between racing and street versions, making it one of the rarest Porsches ever made. This means you’re not likely to see one anytime soon – making the prospect of owning this replica much more appealing:

So the original build started with an already rare, and very low-mileage, 1994 968 Coupe. RennSport added the 3.0 turbo race motor, RS aero bits and those fantastic Speedline wheels. The result is pretty convincing; this car really does look a lot like the real chassis 001 I looked at last March. Real Turbo S and Turbo RS 968s rarely come up for sale, and one in this condition would likely be double the current asking price of this replica. You could either look at this then as a very expensive 968 Coupe that’s no longer original, or a worthy tribute to the legend you’ll never be able to afford. As impressive as it is, I personally don’t think I’d spend over $100,000 on a replica, but then I also don’t have over $100,000 to spend…

  1. There is a guy in my town (Gainesville) who lives down the road from me with a full turbo build 968. I’ve only seen the car a few times on the road and met him once briefly at a Porsche dealer reception. I think he said he was an engineering professor, and a very well known engineer/shop in Tampa did the build for him. Such a waste that Porsche didn’t build a full run of these amazing cars. But then, in the early to mid 90s, economy was not robust, and Porsche’s prices were escalating out of hand.

  2. Who is the lucky new owner?!
