In 1991, Porsche brought the 968 as successor of the 944 and 944-S2. In a period in which Porsche saw a declining number in sales, especially in the entry-level 944 model, it was decided to develop a complete new model as oppose to bring another ‘face-lift’’ onto the market. Reportedly over 80% of the parts from the 944 were replaced or adjusted for the 968. The 968 received a 3.0L four-cylinder line engine, coded M44/44 and delivering 236hp. Ingenuity introduced with the 968 were the introduction of VarioCam what resulted in variable valve timing and a tiptronic automatic gearbox.
The 968 was produced in Zuffenhausen-Germany between 1992 and 1995. As a result of low volume sales over the 3yrs time span, only 12776 were produced. Fast forward to 2020 and the low production volume results in a rare Porsche model with very high-quality standards. As such it’s grown into a collector’s item.
KCC has on offer this meticulous Porsche 968 from 1994 in ‘Horizon Blue metallic (code L37X) with only 61257 kilometres on the odometer. The car is in absolute perfect state. Its history dates back to Japan, where the car was newly delivered in 1994. The current Dutch owner has purchased the car from Japan back in 2008 and imported it into the Netherlands. Experts of Japanese culture will acknowledge that the Japanese attach great importance to norms and values. This is ingrained in their culture and comes from the Shinto religion. As a result, this discipline comes back in their general lifestyle, which equally applies to their cars! They take great care of them up to factory new level. Back to this Porsche 968 the above described is clearly in place. The car is absolutely in meticulous state and has very recently (OCT-2019) had full maintenance, and hasn’t been driven ever since!
The exterior is in very neat conditions, with no dents, dings or noticeable scratches on the panels. All panel gaps appear to be in original state and the car does not show any signs of previous accident damage. Measurement with our paint thickness gauge show the car has received a respray over time, which got confirmed by the current Dutch owner. He resprayed the car upon delivery from Japan back in 2008. This is not noticeable from the quality of the car.
Onto the interior; the car is equipped with a punctilious black leather interior with a black leather roof liner and does not show any wear and tear. Opposite to what one would most certainly expect on a 968, the black roof liner does not show a sliding roof. Its absence is somewhat of a rarity.
Technically the car is equally amongst the best in its class. As referred to the car received very recently very large maintenance in OCT-2019. At the time, timing belt with all ancillaries (rollers), waterpump, sparkplugs, distributor, rotor, oil+filter, fuel filter, front shock absorber bump rubbers and dust covers got replaced. The automatic gearbox got serviced with filter replacement. Furthermore, a brand new (original Denso) airco compressor was fitted and serviced with R134a. Finally, 4 new tyres have been fitted. And the best thing, afterwards only a few kilometres have been driven as a test-drive. Ever since the car has been in our storage, ready to roll during the coming 2020 summer vibes!
What is to be expected when inspecting and/or test driving the car; A car without a past in accident damage. Aside of a very tiny scratch on the front left fender, no imperfections on the exterior. An impeccable interior which appears to be close to new and technically up to the highest of standards. As a result, this car is ready to be enjoyed without the worry to have high maintenance costs in the nearby future.
