The front-engine revolution that breathed new life into Zuffenhausen in the 1970's led to some of the best Porsche's ever built.
Following on from the 924 & 944 success both in production and motorsport, the 1990's saw the last incarnation of the inline, 4-cylinder models - the Porsche 968.
For the 1993 Model Year, Porsche introduced a Clubsport version, tailor made for the driving enthusiast to excel on the racetrack and be competitive in motorsport. Striking in appearance, Clubsport's were made available in Speed Yellow, Guards Red, Grand Prix White, Maritime Blue, Black and Silver with colour coded wheels, race seats and "Clubsport" side Decals.
With its 240bhp, low weight of just 1,320kgs, revised chassis including bigger brakes & sway bars and reduction in ride height of 20mm, it was the way the Clubsport handled that really impressed. Sprinting from 0-100 in just 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 260km/h, anyone that has spent some time behind the wheel of a CS will understand just how balanced a performance package it is.
And as the closest thing to a road-going race-car around at the time, any wonder a 968 Clubsport won the famed Sandown 6 hour enduro in its Australian debut and went on to dominate in the Australian Super Production Championship with Jim Richards and Peter Fitzgerald.
Delivered new by Chellingworth Motors, Western Australia in January of 1996, CTS is pleased to offer this spectacular conditioned Porsche 968 Clubsport.
Finished in Polar Silver with Black Clubsport decals this rare car features the correct Black corduroy front seats, Silver finished 17” Cup 2 design alloys and automatic climate control and graduated tint.
Complete with original owner’s manuals and a fastidiously kept service history from Porsche specialist centres, the most recent of which was at 139,989kms, this 968 Clubsport has had the right tools turned by the right specialists since day dot.
One of just 19 cars made available for the Australian market this car will suit the most discerning enthusiast and collector.
The 968 Clubsport has long been a hot tip among classic car experts as a great investment. With this variant, Porsche created one of the best cars they ever built. It also created a cult classic in the process, cementing it as a true 90’s superstar, one that will always be coveted and continue to drive appreciation.
With such a limited number of Australian delivered cars, and in superb condition this is an opportunity not to be missed.
