Working to update the 944 S2, Porsche engineers realized that the developments they were making were so major as to warrant an entirely new model line. With more than 80% of the mechanical components either new or significantly developed, there was little left of the S2 in its replacement. The styling was a major evolution of the 944 and borrowed elements from the yet to be released Type 993 911. Dubbed the 968, its straight-four-cylinder engine displaced 3.0 liters and produced 236 bhp. It incorporated VarioCam technology, the first system to provide continuous valve adjustment, and a six-speed manual gearbox. By late 1991, the 968 was readied for delivery.
This highly attractive Blue Metallic 968 version was delivered in 1991 in Austria. Accompanied by its original books and various documents, this confirms the car’s originality. It has had regular servicing throughout its life and drives very well. The car presents in very good condition throughout, undoubtedly becoming increasingly rare. A superb car to drive as well as to collect.
