Widely regarded as one of the finest handling front-engined, rear-wheel-drive cars ever made, the Porsche 968 was the ultimate development of the long-lived 924/944 transaxle range.For the real hardcore driving enthusiast, it was also offered in stripped out 'Club Sport' specification, with no air conditioning, sunroof, electric windows, airbags, rear seats, and no sound-proofing either. Revised track-focused suspension, Recaro seats, 17” alloys, and a close-ratio 6-speed gearbox were standard, along with a lusty 3.0 16v 240bhp four-pot engine with VarioCam timing. Winning Performance Car magazine’s ‘Performance Car of the Year Award’ in 1993, only 1,617 were made and all are keenly sought after today. However, for the UK market only, a further 306 Sport versions were made in 1994/95 which retained all the performance upgrades of the Club Sport but added rear seats, more comfortable front seats and electric windows.Supplied new by AFN Reading in March 1994, this Factory Black 968 Sport has covered just under 115,300 miles with an excellent service history consisting of 17 stamps in the service book plus supporting invoices. In September 2011 at 107,908 miles, it had a major £3,561 service when the timing belt and tensioner were replaced, new front brake discs and Brembo callipers were fitted along with EMC spec GAZ Gold shock absorbers. The car was last serviced in March 2016 at 114,563 miles when the belts were renewed yet again, and the clutch was also replaced shortly before that date.The 968 has been with its current owners for five years and is in very smart condition throughout. It will be supplied with all its original handbooks, many old MoTs, and is due to have a new MoT in time for the sale. Thrilling to drive and rare as the proverbial 'hen's teeth', the 968 'Sport', even in a slightly unpredictable market, looks 'Blue Chip', particularly at today's modest guide.
