1993 Porsche 968 Club Sport

While the final evolution of Porsche’s front-engine four-cylinder transaxle experiment wasn’t a resounding sales success, it was not for lack of trying. The standard 968 was certainly a competent and composed performance coupe; sure, it lacked the panache of the 300-horsepower Japanese imports of the time, but wasn’t that in part the point? It was an understated and well-built car that still looks nice today. And it wasn’t as if it also didn’t have some performance. Adding to that in 1992 was the launch of the lightweight Club Sport model. By eliminating some soundproofing material, the sunroof, and the air conditioning as well as fitting manually adjustable Recaro seats, Porsche stripped ~200lbs of weight out of the 968. The same 237-horsepower M44 was under the hood, but the “add lightness” formula worked and produced better performance.

The “must have” colors are Maritime Blue and Speed Yellow, but even if you choose a black one – these only came in five colors in ’93 – they demand a serious premium over other 968s:

Only about 1,900 of these special 968s were produced, so they typically fetch a premium. How premium?
