*First UK registered in 1999


Announced in 1991, the 968 was the fourth of Porsche's family of front-engined sports cars. Styled along Porsche 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. Porsche's big four-cylinder now boasted 'Variocam' variable valve timing and produced 240bhp, good enough for a top speed of 156mph with 60mph coming up in 6.2 seconds.
Intended for enthusiasts seeking enhanced on-track performance, the lightweight Club Sport did without much of the 968's 'luxury' equipment; for example: there was less sound deadening insulation and the window lifts were hand operated, though features such as air conditioning, a sunroof, and an audio system remained available as options. The rear seats were deleted; the fronts replaced with lightweight Recaro competition seats; and a non-airbag steering wheel fitted. There was also a less complex wiring loom and a smaller battery; the result being a reduction in weight of around 100kg when compared to the standard 968. Improvements to the running gear included revised suspension, lowered ride height and 17" wheels shod with wider tyres. In 1993, the Porsche 968 Club Sport was voted 'Performance Car of the Year' by the UK's Performance Car magazine.
A left-hand drive model, this desirable, limited edition Porsche was first registered in the UK in November 1999. Accompanying documentation consists of copies of the car's last V5C Registration Certificate and the sales invoice issued by Gmund Cars Limited of Knaresborough on 5th June 2009 when the car was sold to the current owner.
The Club Sport has been on static display for a number of years and as such will require recommissioning prior to road use. Please also note this Lot is subject to UK import tax if it is to remain in the UK.
