Porsche Certificate of Authenticity Perfect registration number - POR 968S Further details to follow. It might not have topped the sales sheets in the 1990s, but the Porsche 968 is now enjoying belated success as a classic car, particularly the rare Club Sport variant… Owing to its robust technology, the Porsche 968 has long been a hot tip among classic car experts. However, prices have only risen slightly in recent years, unlike those of its relative, the Porsche993, a car that now demands princely sums. The 968 Club Sport, though, is a little different. Introduced in 1992, the lightweight version of the four-cylinder sports car was actually cheaper than its ‘standard’ siblings, joining the range as the entry-level Porsche. Its attractive price coupled with special features such as the M030 sport package, Recaro bucket seats and painted Cup wheels meant sales should have been boosted. But just 1,538 cars were sold; a fraction of the 11,241 968s produced. Good examples today are rare, and demand higher prices than the better-equipped coupés and convertibles. Anyone who has settled into those Recaros and spent some time at the wheel of the 968 CS will understand why it's so sought after. On our way to the island of Sylt, the northernmost part of Germany, the CS comes up trumps. That large 3.0-litre engine, boasting 240HP, pushes hard and, when combined with the low weight (1,320kg) and a silky six-speed gearbox, it feels as precise now as it did 20 years ago. Comfortable cruising is not the CS’s strong point, despite its long wheelbase, but its taut suspension gives you that ‘seat of the pants’ feeling. With a spartan sports steering wheel, there’s some motorsport theatre, too. While it never held a place at the sharp end of the sales statistics, it does hold a place in the hearts of many Porsche enthusiasts. If Porsche were to introduce an entry-level, pared-back, front-engined sports car today, we don't think it could build them quick enough. A genuine C16, Great Britain registered 968 Sport assembled on the infamous Club Sport production line in Zuffenhausen Being one of only 306, right-hand drive, UK 968 Sports produced during 1994 and 1995 forming part of the run of the Club Sport model produced by Porsche and registered in 1994 the car could well have been driven home via the eagerly awaited channel tunnel which opened in Spring of that year. Badged as ‘968 Sports’ in the UK, all are genuine ‘ P35 ClubSports’ and my car is badged as such, with the Luxury Package option which included electric windows, rear seats, sunroof and other refinements. In addition, the car comes with the original sought after black 17 Inch Porsche Cup II wheels, reduced Radio preparation (a period Blaupunkt 'quick pull-out' radio cassette is still fitted, that was ideal for quick removal to save weight on trackdays), mechanically adjustable lightweight black fabric factory seats, specific to Clubsport Lux models front and rear, all in excellent condition, and to compliment the black body trim and decals. Coming with a full-service history comprising twenty-three service stamps and a binder bursting with reassuring notable invoices along with the leather Porsche document folder, owner’s manual, most of the original factory brochures, original tool kit, compressor and two keys this 968 is unable to hide its comprehensive ownership history. Reassuringly, the all import timing belt, tensioners and water pump were changed in the last 18months, with less than 1,000 miles use since.
