The time has come to sell my well known 968 due to lack of use.

I purchased the car in September 2017 with the intention of using it as a track car but my plans changed as I took my ARDS and my interests went elsewhere.

When I acquired the car it had just finished a season racing in the CSCC Modern Classic Series. It had raced in this series in 2014, 15, 16 and 17 with numerous class wins and podiums.

The car also won the 2014 Dunlop Porsche Cup.

When I collected the car and got it home it was clear she was a little tired so I sent it to William Crawford for them to go right through the car with the objective of making it reliable and safe. They undertook a lot of work (£6k invoice in the history file) including a suspension refresh. It then went to Neil Garner for a track geometry set up.

I then used the car for 2 and a half track days and it then sat in my garage until the end of this summer when I had the bodywork sorted and repainted. The bodywork is solid with no corrosion but various bits of contact damage over the years meant it looked untidy.

I have changed the oil and filter and fitted a new competition battery so it is ready for someone else to enjoy. To race it will need some stickers, a fire extinguisher service and it should sail through scrutineering.

I have an extensive history file for the car with an eye-watering amount of invoices along with all of it's qualifying and race results.

The car was dubbed the 'Purple People Eater' by EMC motorsport following a 600 hour build, the spec is great and it had pretty much everything thrown at it including:

Stripped and dipped bodyshell in Maritime blue
Safety devices welded roll cage
Firesence plumbed in fire extinguisher
Blue printed EMC steel liner racing engine
Single mass lightened flywheel & race paddle clutch (re lined 2017)
ECU remapped with lambda sensor bypass
239 bhp rolling road print out
Custom stainless steel exhaust
Gaz adjustable gold dampers
More recently:

2017 Sparco drivers seat and harnesses dated 2022 (original Cobra Suzuka seat installed on passenger side)
6 speed gearbox completely rebuilt by Prill Porsche Classics £3k (April 2017)
Full respray (July 2019)
New competition red top battery (August 2019)
Oil and filter change (August 2019)
The only known problem with the car which I haven't addressed is the rev counter not working, with the shift lights operational it never bothered me.

Included in the sale are various spares and three sets of genuine Porsche cup wheels.

The trailer shown is not included but would negotiate if someone was interested.

This car runs like a dream, it holds perfect oil pressure all day, coolant temp sits right and she doesn't burn a drop of oil. A true testament to Porsche and EMC, it will punch well above it's weight and capable of embarrassing more modern and expensive cars on track.
