Porsche 968

The Porsche 968 was a sports car produced by the German automaker Porsche AG from 1992 to 1995. It was the successor to the Porsche 944 and was designed as a more high-performance version of its predecessor.

The design of the Porsche 968 was a collaborative effort between Porsche designers and engineers. The car featured a sleek and aerodynamic design with a low-slung body and wide wheel arches. It also featured a front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout, which was a departure from the mid-engine layout of the Porsche 944.

Production of the Porsche 968 began in 1992 at Porsche's factory in Stuttgart, Germany. The car was offered in coupe, convertible, and Club Sport variants. The Club Sport variant was a stripped-down, track-focused version of the car that was lighter and more performance-oriented.

The Porsche 968 was powered by a 3.0-liter inline-four engine that produced 236 horsepower and 225 lb-ft of torque. The car was available with either a 6-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission.

Sales of the Porsche 968 were relatively modest, with just over 12,000 units produced during its three-year production run. The car was well-received by automotive critics and enthusiasts for its handling and performance, but it faced tough competition from other sports cars in its class.

Today, the Porsche 968 has developed a cult following among enthusiasts and collectors. The car is prized for its unique combination of performance, handling, and design. It has also become a popular choice for track day enthusiasts and amateur racing drivers.

Overall, the Porsche 968 was a significant model in Porsche's lineup, as it marked the end of the 4-cylinder era for the brand and paved the way for the 6-cylinder-powered Porsche Boxster and Cayman models that followed.
