Double Take: 1995 Porsche 968 6-speed

A few weeks ago, I took a look at a trio of Porsche 968 6-speeds. One was a rare 1995 model; only 259 were sold from that model year. As is often the case with 968 Coupe 6-speeds, the asking prices of two of the three were quite high and they still linger on the market, unsurprisingly. Well, today we have another double take of ’95 specific 6-speeds – how do they measure up to the last three we looked at?

Up for sale is this very clean and VERY hard to find, last year 1995 Porsche 968 Coupe 6-Speed! These 968’s were made in very limited numbers and this 95′ is 1 of only 259 Coupes made in 1995 and many of those were Tiptronic models! The very first Porsche to be fitted with Vario-Cam, 993 style interior and mirrors, and finished in Grand Prix white…this 968 is the one! This is a TRUE 2-Owner car with a full service history from day 1! The second owner who we acquired it from bought it in 1999 with 30k miles…same owner for the last 17 years! Comes with the original window sticker, ALL original keys, all books, air compressor, tool kit, spare, jack, and even the original straps for securing the removable roof in the trunk! This 968 has already had the timing belt and a new clutch done about 10k miles ago. Everything works on the car including the ice cold AC. It is a VERY nice spec with full power seats, heated seats, limited slip diff, hi-fi sound, two-tone partial leather, painted rear spoiler, etc! This car came originally with the 16” cup 1 wheels which we have, but we have sourced this beautiful set of correct Cup 2 17” wheels with new Bridgestone tires that we just installed. (Cup 1 wheels available for an additional $500, or subtract $800 if you choose to have only the Cup 1 wheels and remove the Cup 2 wheels shown) In the last 50 miles, we have done a complete tune up with spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor, and air filter. We have also just replaced the front rotors and pads. This 968 runs like a top, drives excellent, and is ready to go! These cars are getting hard to find and are just starting to go up in value.

Grand Prix White (L908) seems as though it isn’t as often seen as it was on the on the 944 Turbo. Only 299 coupes were imported in that color, the third most popular choice of a slow-selling model. Condition appears to be excellent and in line with the lower 96,000 miles. The car looks stellar on Cup 2 wheels though they’re not original; still, they’re about the perfect choice for this car. It’s a bit interesting that it was a manual car that had the limited slip differential optioned in, but did not have the Cup 2 package added. With maintenance outlined, this great looking late 968 is sure to be looking towards the top of the market – that means mid-$20,000 range. It’s far short at time of writing with only about $15,000 worth of bids.

You are bidding on my 1995 Porsche 968 Coupe. This car has been my weekend driver for the last couple of years, but I recently purchased a 911 C4S so the 968 is for sale. The car is dark blue metallic with a tan interior. It has a 3.0 l engine with a 6 speed manual transmission. The car runs and drives great. The ac blows cold and all power accessories work as they should. I own a European repair shop, so the car has been carefully maintained during my ownership. Please call me with any questions at 706-354-6700. Thanks for looking.

The fourth most popular color on the 968 Coupe, following Grand Prix White, was Midnight Blue Metallic (L37W/L39C) with 220 imported. The tan interior offsets the color nicely, though it must be said that at least on my screen the exterior is not well photographed. The car is claimed to be up to date on service and that everything works, though there’s no disclosure of what has been done. The Club Sport graphics look to be the correct factory item, but there isn’t an indication that the car is actually a Club Sport/M030 equipped car. The Boxster wheels are a not particularly good looking addition in my mind, probably replacing the original 16″ Cup 1 wheels – but they’re much more affordable than the proper 17″ Cup 2s. Still, despite some questions (like Autocheck’s claim that this car has had 10 owners?), it appears well priced at $15,500 – about what the bidding on the GPW car has hit with the reserve still on, and half of what the asking price on two of the three from December was. I wouldn’t expect it to stick around very long.

  1. Heated seats and LSD on the white one make it really rare. I’ve never seen heated seats on a 968. Keep the miles down and even this 95K car could be a good investment.

  2. What exactly is a “993 style interior”? Looks exactly like my 1989 S2 Coupe apart from the seat design. I’d have a hard time saying a seat makes the interior look like a 993.
    Absolutely beautiful car though – love the color combination.

  3. The next e30 M3??

  4. @Paul – interesting thought, but I don’t think so. The 968 doesn’t have the clout of the M3 in terms of appeal or race track victories. There also wasn’t really a subordinate run at the same time like in the E30 series, so there wasn’t one to look up towards or an entry level model (ie 318 owner hoping to have a E30 one day). Plus, it’s really overshadowed by the 928 GTS and of course the 911 range.

    But that’s a good thing if you want to buy one!
