Footnotes

  • Announced in 1991, the 968 was the fourth of Porsche's family of front-engined sports cars. Restyled along 928 lines, the 968 retained its 944 predecessor's basic mechanical layout while improving on its specification, boasting a 2,990cc engine and six-speed manual transmission as standard. Porsche's big four-cylinder now boasted 'Variocam' variable valve timing and produced 240bhp, which was good enough for a top speed of 156mph, with 60mph coming up in 6.2 seconds. Despite its improved performance, the 968 had the misfortune of arriving at a time of recession and did not sell well. Stripped-out Club Sport and racetrack-ready Turbo S versions were added to the range before production ceased after only four years.
    Equipped with the Tiptronic automatic transmission, this right-hand drive Porsche 968 was imported into the Republic of Ireland from Japan in November 2007 and first registered in the UK on 7th December of that same year. We are advised that 'J723 FWL' was last serviced in May 2011 (at 92,220 kilometres) and has covered 93,340km from new (approximately 58,000 miles). Finished in silver with black leather interior, the car is described by the vendor as in generally very good condition and offered with sundry invoices, MoT to 21st July 2012 and Swansea V5C document. Air conditioning and a CD player are the only notified deviations from factory specification.
