1991-1995 PORSCHE 968 specifications Classic and Performance Car

Launched in late 1991, the UK had to wait until May 1992 for right-hand-drive versions of this ultimate development of the 944 theme. It continues with the 944 S2’s three-litre engine, but with variable valve timing to improve power, torque and economy. Visually it was the biggest change to the range, with only doors, roof and tailgate surviving unchanged from the 944. Inside, all trim materials were standardised with the 911 and 928, raising the impression of quality. Sales were disappointing, but 1993’s stripped out Club Sport version got buyers back into the showrooms.
