Porsche 968 Clubsport

The Porsche 968 represents the last stage of development of the Porsche transaxle models and was the direct successor to the Porsche 944. The specialty of these models is the engine installed in the front, with the gearbox in the rear of the vehicle. All model variants were equipped with a 3.0-liter four-cylinder in-line engine and rear-wheel drive. The weight of the clubsport variant, which was built exactly 1,538 times, has been reduced by 50 kilos by eliminating heavy comfort extras and the chassis has been lowered by 20 mm. Overall, the sports car was trimmed for use on the racetrack, and very light sports seats painted in the color of the car could be ordered as an option. The cup rims were also painted in the exterior color of the vehicle. The Porsche 968 Clubsport on offer was further optimized professionally for use on the racetrack and successfully took part in the Porsche Club Historic Challenge, whereby all original parts are available and the vehicle can thus be restored to its original condition.

The vehicle in detail

vehicle description

General

Porsche presented the Porsche 924, conceived as an entry-level model below the Porsche 911. Initially conceived as a successor to the VW-Porsche 914 manufactured with Volkswagen AG, Porsche developed this sports car on its own due to financial difficulties at Volkswagen. The vehicle was equipped with a four-cylinder front engine, while the transmission is located in the rear of the spacious sports car. This concept is known as the transaxle and has shaped this model series from then on. The Porsche 924 quickly became an absolute success factor for the brand, as it appealed to a wider audience due to its lower price and thus already accounted for almost 50% of vehicle sales in the first year. Ultimately, the model helped the group survive the oil crisis of the 1970s unscathed and by the end of production in 1988, over 150,000 vehicles had been sold.

As early as 1982, the successor model was in the starting blocks, which was also produced as a transaxle model. The Porsche 944 was immediately very successful and an impressive sports car, also due to its almost perfect balance. Instead of the four-cylinder engine developed by Audi and built into the Porsche 924, Porsche developed the unit in the 944 itself.
The last Porsche transaxle came onto the market after almost 10 years. The Porsche 968 was to be the last development stage of this series and was produced between 1991 and 1995. All model variants were equipped with a 3.0-liter four-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive. In addition to the Porsche 968, the basic model, there was also the 968 Clubsport, a sports car optimized for lightweight construction and lap times, a 968 Turbo S and 968 Turbo RS, which represented the absolute top in terms of performance and driving behavior. The Porsche 968 Clubsport produced 1,538 vehicles, while the Porsche 968 Turbo S and Porsche 968 Turbo RS produced 10 and 3 vehicles, respectively.

history

The Porsche 968 Clubsport was delivered to the first owner on March 22nd, 1993 by the Porsche Center Inntal. The sports car stayed with him for a few years before the vehicle was delivered to the new owner. Unfortunately, the exact history of this period is not known, but what is certain is that the car was only ever registered in Germany.
A TÜV report is then available from 2006, in which the clubsport has a mileage of almost 85,000 kilometers and has passed the main inspection without any defects. The owner at the time, a businessman from Bavaria, owned the vehicle until 2007, when the Porsche 968 Clubsport last changed hands. The vehicle has been in fourth hand since 2007 and has a mileage of almost 95,000 kilometers. The current owner drove the sports car on public roads for 2 years until he decided in 2009 to convert the vehicle to the Porsche Club Historic Challenge by a renowned Porsche specialist. To further reduce the weight, all carpets and leather upholstery were removed and the seats removed. Instead, the roll cage was expanded, a racing bucket seat was introduced and the original bonnet was replaced with a GRP bonnet. In addition, a removable racing steering wheel was installed, the original brake pads were immersed in racing pads and the engine was optimized, for which a performance diagram is available.
During the 2010 and 2011 seasons, the club sport owner successfully took part in the Porsche Club Historic Challenge. He drove an average of five races a year, each lasting over 30 minutes. After 2 years at the Porsche 968 Clubsport, he switched to a Porsche 997 GT3 Cup and only drove the Clubsport on public roads. At the end of 2012 the vehicle was deregistered and only taken out of the garage for movement journeys in order to avoid damage to the stand. In December 2021, a major service for over € 2,200 was carried out and all fluids were exchanged in order to sell the vehicle ready for immediate use.

particularities

The vehicle was professionally built for racing in 2009, with all original parts still available and included in the sales price. In this way, the vehicle can also be completely restored to the delivery condition on request. The vehicle also has three other sets of wheels, including two sets of rims with slicks and one set of rims with rain tires. However, these tires have to be replaced because they are almost 10 years old and accordingly hard.
With this sports car, the new owner of this very beautiful Porsche 968 Clubsport has the option of racing in a very sporty but inexpensive manner, or to restore the vehicle to its original condition. Regardless of how the new owner decides, the vehicle is sure to be a lot of driving pleasure.

Furnishing

The Porsche 968 Clubsport has German national equipment and some very important equipment features that are decisive for the price development of the vehicle. The sports car was equipped with the optional sports suspension and limited-slip differential, which increases the sportiness of the vehicle from the factory.
