From The Brumos Collection

Manufactured from 1992 to 1995, the Porsche 968 was the successor to the 944 and the final development of the four-cylinder transaxle models, which had begun with the introduction of the 924 in 1976. Evolutionary rather than revolutionary, nearly 80% of the 968’s mechanicals were either significantly revised or new over the 944. Advances included an enlarged three-liter DOHC inline-four producing 236 hp, VarioCam variable valve timing, optimized induction and exhaust systems, and updated engine management.

This 1995 Porsche 968 was supplied new to Bob Carlson, whose 24-year tenure at Porsche included overseeing all public relations for the company during a golden era in motor sports. The 968 was finished in Polar Silver Metallic over a gray leather interior, and came equipped with a sunroof and Tiptronic automatic transmission that offered the driver the ability to shift the gears manually. Purchased by The Brumos Collection in 2006, this car has traveled less than 15,000 miles from new and impresses with original finishes throughout. In preparation for the sale, a service including timing belt replacement was performed by Porsche Jacksonville in January 2019. The Porsche also recently received new tires and an alignment.

Offering sprite performance and handling, this 968 comes with its manuals, tools, original window sticker, spare, jack, and documentation. One of just 259 built for the 1995 model year and among the last five examples produced for the US, this well-presented, low-mileage 968 deserves your serious consideration.
