81K ACTUAL MILES, CLEAN HISTORY, 6 SPEED MANUAL, LOTS OF RECORDS, COLD AC, NICE!
The four-cylinder cars are back with a vengeance at Porsche, so what better way to celebrate it than with the 968? This is more than just the last of the great front-engined four-cylinders, it's a rare droptop that has that has been preserved/maintained correctly to show you it still has all the right German moves.
The 968 is far more than an evolution of the 944. The lineage to the full Porsche family is instantly apparent. The headlights borrow the lines of the 959 supercar and also have the 928's cool pop up feature; the bumper design echoes the 911 of the era; and the rear combines the spirit of the 928 GTS with the solid red offered on the 911. So, it's all the best of Porsche in one car. Better still, this one has lived an easy life, and so Porsche's high levels of quality remain. The panels align tightly, the folding soft top still fits snugly, and the doors close with a firmness that few other manufacturers can match. And while the black paint still has great gloss for its age, grabbing just as much attain is the upgrade to modern 18-inch Porsche alloys.
The interior is as pure a driving environment as you'll find. Designed by the same guys who win at Lemans, it has hints of its legendary 911 brother with those supportive leather buckets. Of course it all looks great because this car has been given the respect it deserved from day one. Clear analog gauges are straightforward, and the manual shifter is the best one this side of a Mazda Miata's joystick. It's is loaded with plenty of high-end luxury (this IS a Porsche, after all) including power seats, power locks, cruise control, anti-lock brakes, dual airbags, and an upgraded Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and JL Audio subwoofer. But the features you're going to love the best are the power windows and power convertible top. Together, they mean you don't have to leave the driver's seat to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. And since the modern R134a air conditioning is blowing cold, you can even do this during the summer season.
The brawny 3.0-liter powerplant is the one you want. It has benefited from years of evolution and development to create a powerful motor that fits well in this lightweight platform. This one looks exceptionally original and all the wires & belts look exceptionally tight and tidy, so you know it's been properly maintained (we also have the records to prove it, too.) Not only did this motor outpace just about every the four-cylinder machine before it, including the ultra-hot 944 Turbo, but it also has a smooth level of refinement that you expect from the best Porsches. Making the most of the motor, the 968 debuted the six-speed manual transmission, so you can go from grand touring comfort to a backroad burner in one downshift. In fact, with the lightweight nature, rear transaxle for good weight distribution, and a sport-tuned fully independent suspension, this is THE Porsche you want if you enjoy the long way home. Add in power steering, four-wheel disc brakes, and the superior grip of new BF Goodrich gForce Comp2 tires, and this is a true pocket rocket that moves with true telepathic precision.
Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, these are a true rarity with a short four-year production run and less than 4,400 droptops produced in total. It's an amazing Porsche with so much appeal, and we are only now mentioning the ultra-affordable price. Oh yes, this is a hot deal that's going to be moving soon. Call today!!!
