Porsche 968 Sport – Fast Road/Track Day

To Be Auctioned


Porsche 968 Sport – Fast Road/Track Day – A well executed Porsche 968 with Fast Road and Track Day credentials finished in the instantly recognisable Rothmans livery.

Widely regarded as one of the finest handling front-engined, rear-wheel-drive cars ever made, the Porsche 968 was the ultimate development of the long-lived 924/944 transaxle range. For the real hardcore driving enthusiast, it was also offered in stripped out Club Sport specification, with no air conditioning, sunroof, electric windows, airbags, rear seats, and no sound-proofing either. Revised track-focused suspension, Recaro seats, 17” alloys, and a close-ratio 6-speed gearbox were standard, along with a lusty 3.0-litre, 16v, 240bhp, four-pot engine with VarioCam timing. Only 1,617 were made, however, in 1994 for the UK market only, a further 306 slightly different versions were produced and these were simply entitled Sport.

The Sport was produced on the same production line as the Club Sport and has very similar chassis and suspension. The key difference between the CS and the Sport is that the Sport has a bigger wiring loom and battery to cope with the extra electrics that have been put in, electric windows, tailgate release, central locking, etc. It also has the occasional rear seats, unlike the CS, and it has the comfort front seats.

This particular 968 Sport left the production line in 1995, leading a fairly gentle life until 2004, when it was prepared for a more exciting existence with a more recognisable livery and an enhanced specification.  Alongside the original 3.0 powerplant and 6-speed manual gearbox, its CV now includes a Wiechers Torsion Bar, lowered suspension all round, competition steering rack, Porsche 993 Turbo front brakes, Porsche 968 17’’ Cup Alloy Wheels with Nankang semi-slick road legal tyres and Koni Adjustable suspension which is poly-bushed throughout.

Now professionally repainted in Grand Prix White with Porsche Rothmans Graphics, the 968 stands out from the crowd, is on the button and ready to be used once again as intended; so much so, that our vendor informs us that it is “extremely quick and handles like a dream but is so forgiving on the road and track that it is suitable for a complete novice or a more time-served skilled driver”. It’s complete with a comprehensive history file including an original Owners Manual, current V5C registration document and freshly issued MOT Certificate giving the potential for an enjoyable ride to the circuit before the more frantic on-track action begins.
