Originally intended to be yet another facelift for the Porsche 944, the 968 only became a model in its own right after the Porsche management had realised that about 80 % of the mechanical components had been either modified or replaced altogether. The resulting car still looked very much like a 944 when seen from the side, or indeed from the inside, which was unchanged from the 944 S2. The front and rear sections of the car had been restyled, though, giving them a stronger family resemblance with the 928, and anticipating styling cues from the 993.
Production of the 968 – available as coupé or convertible – was no longer at Audi’s Neckarsulm plant where the 924 and 944 had been assembled, but at Porsche’s own Zuffenhausen factory. The 968 featured an updated version of the 3.0 litre inline 4-cylinder powerplant of its predecessor, which produced 177 kW (240 hp) and was mated to a 6-speed manual gearshift.
As of 1993, a Clubsport version of the 968 targeted customers who preferred a more lightweight, and therefore faster car to the rather luxuriously equipped, and more expensive, standard 968.
A very limited series of 968 Turbo S and 968 Turbo RS needs to be mentioned. With the 968, the era of 4-cylinder Porsche cars also came to an end… until almost two decades later, in 2016, the 718 Boxster revived this tradtition.
