The 968 was made by German automaker Porsche between the years of 1992 and 1995. It was a water-cooled, front-engine, rear-wheel drive car that was a replacement for the 944 model. It shared about 20 percent of the parts with its predecessor the 944. The 924 and 944 had been produced, under contract, at the Audi plant in Neckarsulm. Production for the 968 was moved to the Porsche factory in Zuffenhausen. Like previous models, it came in both a coupe and cabriolet form. Its body was completely redesigned to look more modern, sleek and luxurious.
The 968 was powered by a redesigned version of the 944’s 2.5L four-cylinder. It was now a 3.0 L with 104 mm bore, 88 mm stroke and producing 237 horsepower. It was the second largest 4-cylinder ever made by Porsche. It was offered with a 6-speed manual transmission or dual-mode Tiptronic automatic transmission.
In 1993, the “Club Sport” version of the 968 was introduced. It was lightweight and performance-oriented. To save weight, many of the luxurious options were removed. The 968CS came with Recaro racing seats, rather than the standard leather. While the 968 was configured as a 2+2, the 968 did away with the backseat entirely. These weight savings resulted in improved performance; the 968CS had a 0-60 mph speed of just 6.3 seconds and a top speed of 160 mph.
Building on what Porsche learned from the Club Sport version, they introduced the 968 Turbo S. It was driven by a large 8 valve SOHC cylinder head, used in the 944 Turbo S, with 3.0 Liter engine block. This dropped the 0-60 mph speed to an impressive 4.7 seconds and raised the top speed to 175 mph.
While the 968 was not the best selling of Porsche cars, it has a following of passionate enthusiasts. Fans of the 968 praise it for its phenomenal balance and handling prowess, powerful 4-cylinder, and spacious rear cargo area.
