THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Shortly after production of Porsche's 944 S2 variant, engineers in Stuttgart began work on the next set of significant upgrades for the model, for a planned final iteration "S3" 944 variant. During the development, engineers soon realized that over 80% of the proposed S3's mechanical components had either been significantly developed or completely replaced leaving little of the outgoing S2 behind. The styling, an evolution of that of the outgoing 944 S2 itself based on the earlier 924, borrowed elements from upscale siblings later to be previewed on the type 993 911. The 968's straight-four-cylinder engine displacing now 3.0liters produced 236bhp, incorporated VarioCam, the first system to provide continuous valve adjustment (a later feature of the 993) and a 6-speed manual gearbox (too, later to be used in the 993). Production moved from the VW-Audi plant in Neckarsulm where the 924 and 944 cars had been manufactured under contract to Porsche, to Porsche's own factory in Zuffenhausen. By late 1991, the type 968 was readied for delivery.

Production of the North American 968 Coupe began in September of 1991 and continued through October of 1994. Throughout the 4-year production cycle, only 2,234 Coupe examples were ordered - RS820075, vehicle 1,272 within the vehicle order sequence, completed final assembly in Stuttgart in April of 1993. Sold new in Harrisburg, PA this Guards Red example came factory equipped with Cup styled staggered 17" wheels and partial-leather interior. With factory code 718 on the build sheet, this spring of 1993 built 968 was reassigned an upcoming '94 to be sold as such – a sign of increasingly low sales figures for period Porsches, but complete with more décor than later budget constrained models. RS820075 presents a collectors' grade 968 that possesses the necessary attributes for any Porsche enthusiast's collection. Having traveled less than 4,200 miles this 968 comes complete with its tools, manuals, service records and a COA. With believed all-original paint and interior, a recent service inclusive of belts and fluids this car is one of the finest known on the market. Representing the culmination of the 944's legacy, RS820075 is an excellent entry into the transaxle community.
