For Sale: 1992 Porsche 968 in Anaheim, California

Vehicle Description

This 1992 968 Cabriolet 6 speed (Manual) has incredibly low miles at 37,053 and impeccable service history with no accidents or paintwork at all. We just put brand new tire on her and she drives like a dream, suitable for any collectors garage. The 968 is the pinnacle of Porsches long-running front-engine, water-cooled, four-cylinder series (successor to the 944 and prior 928) but Porsche engineers didnt just make a few changes and call it good. They threw themselves into the project, ultimately replacing 80 percent of the 944s mechanical components and creating a sports car that could stand on its own. The 968s surpriseserious performance and valueis also its delight. Most of the cars fans will tell you that the 968 is seriously underrated, and they have a point, says Hagerty Valuation Editor Andrew Newton. They look great, theyre quite rare, theyre well engineered, and theyre pretty quick. Up until 201516, they were pretty cheap, too. Although theyve been on the rise for a few years, they still cost the same or less than their V-8 928 cousins (depending on the model), and theyre more fun to drive. The 199295 Porsche 968 shares the front-engine/rear-transaxle layout of its predecessor, preserving its impressiveand trademark50/50 weight distribution. In addition to its predictably responsive handling, the 968 received a 3.0-liter DOHC inline-four that produces 236 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a six-speed manual transmission (a Tiptronic automatic was also available), the 968 accelerates from 060 of 6.1 seconds and offers a top speed of 156 mph. Turbo S models (305 hp) go from 060 in 4.9 seconds; top speed is 175 mph. The 968s styling, courtesy of original 924 designer Harm Lagaay, includes a 928-esque front end, unlike hidden pop-up headlamps of the 944. Inside is everything youd expect from Porsche, as well as something you wouldnt: room enough in the rear (when the rear seats are folded down) to transport a bicycle, camping gear, or the family dogeven if its an Alaskan Malamute. And with a median #3-condition (Good) value of $17,550, its also affordable, even though its fairly rare. Only 4665 coupes and cabriolets came to the U.S. in four years. Oddly enough, Newton says, Weve seen the other transaxle Porscheslike the 924s, 944s and 928sat auction regularly, along with just about every other kind of Porsche. But the 968 has been curiously absent for the most part. That may change as 968 values rise. In fact, already on our radar is a 1995 model thats set to cross the block at Gooding & Companys Amelia Island auction . We wont be the only ones watching closely. The recent Hagerty Vehicle Rating confirms the 968 is growing hotter.
