1993 Porsche 968 Cabriolet “Barn Find”
3.0L L4 16V DOHC 16V M44/43 Variocam Engine
Six Speed Manual Transaxle
The zenith of Porsche's long running front-engine, four-cylinder 924/944 series culminated with the 968 in 1992. What started as an evolution of the 3.0-liter 944 S2 ended up being a car that Porsche claimed was 80% new, with production in Porsche's own Zuffenhausen works. The 968 shared the front-engine/rear transaxle layout of its predecessor, but at the front was now a 236-hp Variocam-equipped 3.0-liter DOHC I-4, and at the rear was a new six-speed transaxle preserving the trademark 50/50 weight distribution that this platform was famous for. The 944S2/Turbo suspension and Brembo brakes were carried over into the new model.
The Porsche 968 was wrapped in new bodywork with updated styling that drew from the 928 at the front, and was more integrated than its 924/944 predecessor at the rear. The 968 could rip off a 0-60 sprint of 5.6 seconds with a 156-mph top speed. Handling is neutral, forgiving, confidence inspiring, and predictable, which made for accessible and satisfying performance in a practical sports car.
This 968 is a true “barn find”, having lived in a dry, heated one since it was inherited in 2014. It has been run during driven to get a new convertible top installed. It is one of only 414 North American cabriolets built that year, and has never been driven in winter or bad weather. Its Guards Red exterior has clear protective film applied to the front end & mirrors. The Cashmere leather seats and entire interior are in very good condition. It is equipped with power seats, steering & brakes, ABS, and has a newer Nakamichi audio unit with CD player. The original tool roll and all books are included, as is a clean Carfax (with no accidents or issues reported) and a clear Michigan title.
