With everyone pouring over ridiculous Cayennes and Panameras these days (yeah, I just went there), we all forget about the simpler times at Porsche. This was a lineup filled with 911s and magnificently balanced front engined GTs. Here’s a really clean, two owner 968 cabriolet. And thankfully, it has three pedals.
The seller states:
Very nice 2 owner car. Only 60K miles, 6 speed, new clutch, Service are up to date, power top in excellent condition, Silver blue with gray leather and blue top.CD , Cold AC, climate control, Runs and drives excellent. Clean title, no dings and dents, carfax certified. Non smoker. Good tires. Good brakes.
I could think of a lot worse ways to spend $14,900. This car got me thinking that I could have had a Porsche for the price of my Cooper S. Granted, my Cooper S is newer and has less miles. Nevertheless, with 60,000 miles and a robust 3.0 liter four, this Porsche would be a solid investment and a lot of fun for someone in a more temperate climate. They are one of those early to mid 90s German classics that are becoming a rare sight on the roads today.
I’ll admit, I have a thing for the Porsche 968, especially a late model example such as this one. This car, located in my hometown, has been serviced by RS Barn, which is a well known shop amongst enthusiasts in the Delaware Valley.
The seller states:
Last year of this wonderful water cooled Porsche, best of 924/944/968 series. We got this car on trade for 993 cab. Car comes with all keys manuals and service history.We also have a complete tool kit and cargo cover for the car(not pictured).Tires are about 80% tread left. Car has only 20 miles since last service by RS barn in Newtown PA. Over $2500 spent to make it perfect, all fluids, timing belt, brakes were done .Everything to make a new owner happy. Interior is also in very good shape, everything including a/c works on this car. After careful inspection we discovered that the car had some previous paint work, but all panels, fenders ,doors are still original. Car runs and drives exeptionally ,and the torque of the Porsche 3.0L is really impressive.There are no signs of the track use, however I would recommend to the new buyer to take this car to the track, with perfect balance this car will outrun much more powerfull cars.No reserve on this one, Don’t miss it, and you can’t buy them every day.
This may not be the preeminate Porsche on everyone’s mind, but the 968’s handling is legendary. It could very well possess the best moves of any modern day sports car. With no reserve on the auction, it’s certain that this fairly clean example should see the better side of $10,000. Noted journalist Jeremy Clarkson agreed, however, it wasn’t his top choice, as we see in the following clip:
The first owner kept everything from new; including:
Meticulous maintenance records
Original Factory Window Sticker ($43,140)
All Original Books/Manuals/Pamphlets/Warranty cards
Press KIT that includes loads of Color Brochures and Dealer Sales info
Full COLOR dealer sales brochures.
COLOR Magazine Articles from dealer
Original TEMP TAG from new.
Letter from President of PORSCHE USA ( signed )
Original Porsche 968 Technical Data and specification brochure.
And Much more Misc. other documents.
Second owner picked it up and brought it to Georgia and had it for 3-4 years and kept it as nice as the first owner. It now resides here in Bonita Springs Florida and can be view at any time.
Mechanically its runs out strong with no problems. AC blows hard and cold and everything works.
Personally, I’m liking the color combo on the first one better, and it’s over three grand cheaper. I always put a premium on low mileage examples because in my mind it’s less road time and thus less opportunity for accidents and poor maintenance. But even if a PPI revealed that it needed some work, wouldn’t the three grand saved budget nicely to make for a nearly perfect example?
