A cool Porsche coupe for a value price made you stop and look at
this one. But as you dig deeper, you'll discover a grand touring
precision German machine that has supple leather, loaded with
features, and a motor that loves to sing with the six-speed. That's
what you get with this 1995 Porsche 968.
The 968 really does showcase the best from the Porsche family. The
headlights borrow the lines of the 959 supercar and also have the
928's cool pop-up feature; the bumper design echoes the 911 of the
era; and the rear has the spirit of the 928 GTS. Plus, the 16-inch
wheels are a sporty icon of the era with a design similar to the
911 Turbo. This actual mileage car is a true classic that has
passed the quarter-century mark, and so you'll find signs of use
and living. But the way the panels line up to showcase the unique
and sporty lines reminds you of the overall German build
The interior has a nice sense of sporty style. The race-inspired
bucket seats power adjusts to deliver your ideal driving position.
And this 968 has been built to be your perfect road trip companion.
That's why it comes loaded with power windows, cruise control,
anti-lock brakes, dual airbags, and a Blaupunkt AM/FM/cassette
stereo. Best of all, the air conditioning is blowing cold. So it's
perfect to remove the sunroof that's almost as large as the roof,
and cruise around open to the world - even in the summertime.
The brawny 3.0-liter powerplant is the one you want. It has
benefited from years of evolution and development to create a
powerful motor that fits well in this lightweight platform. This
one looks exceptionally stock and very tidy. Plus, we have a long
maintenance file to show a history of care. Not only did this motor
outpace just about every four-cylinder machine before it, including
the ultra-hot 944 Turbo, but it also has a smooth level of
refinement that you expect from the best Porsches. Making the most
of the motor, the 968 debuted the six-speed manual transmission, so
you can go from grand touring comfort to a backroad burner in one
downshift. In fact, with the lightweight nature, rear transaxle for
good weight distribution, and a sport-tuned fully independent
suspension, this is THE Porsche you want if you enjoy the long way
home. Add in power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, and the
grip of Nitto ZR-rated tires, and this is a true pocket-rocket that
moves with true telepathic precision.
Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, these 968s
are a true rarity with a short four-year production run (and this
final-year model was the rarest of them.) So while you may want to
give the paint a respray or add a modern stereo, this coupe has the
style, rarity, power, and maintenance to be overall irresistible.
