Originally mooted as the 944 S3, the new number was probably more a result of pressure from the marketing department, but it was right for recessionary Porsche wrestling with struggling sales. Visually, it was the biggest step forward since the launch of the original 944 in 1981, with only the doors, roof and tailgate being carried over from the 944. The new front-end with 928 style pop-up headlamps did bring a touch of modernity.Itwas powered by an updated version of the 944's straight-four3.0-litre, now with 237bhp. Changes to the 968's powertrain included the addition of Porsche's, then-new, 'Varioram' variable valve timing system, newly optimised induction and exhaust systems, a dual-mass flywheel, updated engine management electronics and thedual-mode Tiptronic automatic became an option.First registered on the 24/05/1994, this right-hand drive (C-16) UK-suppliedPorsche 968 had been very tastefully specified inMidnight BluewithMarble Grey leather.It was optioned from newwith adark blue hood,Tiptronic (automatic) transmission, 17 Cup-style alloy wheels, the 'Cup' steering wheel and an upgraded stereo system compatible with a modern iPhone.With just threeregistered keepers to date, it's clear to see that this sparkling 968 has been well looked after over the years.It's inlovely condition and has benefitted fromrecent expenditure of around 5,000 on maintenanceand aesthetics ensuring the little Porsche remains in top form.The indicated mileage of 43,475 is supported by a comprehensive service history and the car is accompanied by itsoriginal Porsche book-pack containingthe service book/owner's manuals and the tool kit is also present. The MoT is up-to-date and valid until March 2021with no advisories. As you can see from the video attached to this listing, the electric hood operates as it should and we are informed by our vendor that the car drives as well as it looks.Today, these modern classic sports cars offer superb value for money and, as you would expect from one of the worlds most highly regarded sports car manufacturers, the performance matches the excellent build quality. These 968s look as good on the road today as they did when new in the '90s and running costs neednt be painful either with many marque specialists available for routine maintenance.Summeris just around the corner and this Cabriolet is a lovely example in a super colour, with decent history and very sensibly guided.Video of the Porsche 968 Cabriolet1994 Porsche 968 Cabriolethttps://youtu.be/90h08sCM4X4true
