In 1991, the Porsche 968 was introduced as the successor to the 944 and at the same time the last Porsche of the transaxle models. The basic model was offered as a coupé and as a convertible, although the sports versions such as CS (Club Sport), Turbo S and Turbo RS were only available as coupé. As mentioned above, the Porsche 968 was equipped with the transaxle concept and was powered by a 4-cylinder in-line engine with a 3 litre capacity.

The Turbo RS was equipped with a turbocharged 3 litre engine with 257 kW / 350 PS.
