It’s been almost 20 years since the last one rolled off the production line, but I think it’s safe to say that the Porsche 968 has aged well. This was the end of the line for the water cooled, front engined four cylinder formula. These models were slightly derided for not being a true Porsche in their day, but as time has marched on they’re gaining their fair share of praise, most notably for being a track day hero. Still, these sports cars are a bit of a dark horse with collectors, making them a reasonable bargain for those seeking precision Stuttgart engineering.
While neither of the cars we’re about to feature could be considered bargains, they are interesting varieties not normally seen on our shores. The first 968 we’ll take a look at is one of my favorite Porsches of all time, the 968CS, or Club Sport.
Model: 968 Club Sport
Engine: 3.0 liter inline-4
Transmission: 6-speed manual
Mileage: 63,932 km (~ 39,719 mi)
Price: €34,900 (~ $47,477 USD)
Well kept Porsche 968 CS in Maritime Blue with just under 64000 km! Very rare, accident free Porsche 968CS in Maritime Blue, a one-owner German vehicle. The Porsche was later fitted with a stainless steel exhaust system from Cargraphic, spacers and a KW coilover suspension. The Porsche 968CS is mechanically and cosmetically perfect condition and has not been driven on the track. The secret among young timers with cult status!

The 968 Club Sport is one of those forbidden fruits that, in a few years time, will be legal to import stateside. These lightweight, track oriented 968s take the basic 968 formula one notch further. Those familiar with them know they are one of the greatest track tools of our time. At almost $50,000 USD, that’s heady territory for a 968, but once a few of these start arriving in the US after they become legal to import, I’d suspect we may see some clean examples start fetching some strong money for those in the know.
Next, let’s take a look at this 968 for sale in Frankfurt, wearing a rare shade of Signal Green.
Engine: 3.0 liter inline-4
Transmission: 4-speed automatic with Tiptronic
Mileage: 78,000 km (~ 48,467 mi)

Andy Warhol once said “art is what you can get away with.” Colors like these are so wild that they just work. If you’re going to drive a sporting vehicle, you might as well have a little bit of fun with it at the same time. Signal Green is one of my favorite Porsche colors of all time. Obviously, the one detriment to this car, other than the price, is the automatic gearbox. But I have never seen a 968 painted this color. From everything I have read, it seems like the number of 968s painted in this color may be in the single digits. Whatever the case may be, these two Porsches are fueling my desire to own one in the near future.
