When this car left the factory in May 1994, Porsche was hard at work developing its replacement—the Boxster. The 968 may have been "new" for 1992, but it was really just a heavy revision of the 944, which itself started life as the 924 in 1976. Selling what was effectively a 20-year old car wasn't good for Porsche in 1994, but it's great for us now.
The 968 represents Porsche's . It came with a 3.o-liter four-cylinder that offered 240 hp and 225 lb-ft of torque when new—impressive numbers for a naturally aspirated four. Equipped with the standard six-speed manual, a 968 Coupe would hit 60 mph in around 5.6 seconds, and would run to 153 mph flat out.
This car also offered the balanced handling that made the 944 a legend, thanks to 50/50 weight distribution. Styling was modernized too, with 928-esque exposed pop-up headlights and smooth body surfacing.
The car you see here is finished in its original Grand Prix White paint, and has only driven 66,000 miles since it was new. You can find a few imperfections here and there, but for the most part, this car is damn clean. It also comes with a factory limited-slip differential, which is essential for these cars.
Right now, it's with bidding up to $7000 at the time of writing. It'll probably sell for a lot more than that, though, since 968s are rare, and this one is especially nice.
