The 968 was well regarded and received excellent reviews, even if the UK market had to wait almost a year from launch to get it (blame the slow 944 sales for that). It was powered by the 944 S2's 3.0-litre 4-cylinder engine producing 225lb ft of torque and 240bhp. but with variable valve timing to improve power, torque, fuel economy, and most importantly, drivability. Visually, it was the biggest step forward since the launch of the original 944 in 1981, with only the doors, roof and tailgate being carried over from the 944. The new front-end with 928 style pop-up headlamps did bring a touch of modernity.The interior trim was standardised with the 911 and 928, justifying the inflated list price, but not enough as sales were rather slow, however, all that changed in 1993 when the stripped-out, back-to-basics 'Clubsport' (Vereinssport) was launched at £7,000 less. Not only was it cheaper, but the CS was also inspirationally good to drive. Porsche had set their sights on creating a car tailored for the driving enthusiast and, in particular, one with competition potential. This was achieved by removing all luxury-orientated equipment from the basic build specification, for example, less sound deadening material was used and the electric windows were replaced with hand-wound units. In addition, Porsche installed manually adjustable, lightweight Recaro racing seats rather than the standard power-operated, leather buckets, and revised suspension optimized and lowered by 20mm, with 17-inch wheels also helped the quest for lightness and crisp handling. With the no-frills approach, less weight, and clever suspension, Porsche could now focus media attention on the Club Sport's fast road and track abilities, and the CS achieved a 'Performance Car Of The Year' award in 1993 from Performance Car magazine in the UK. In total, just 1,923 units were produced, of which only 179 were right-hand drive, making the Club Sport a very rare Porsche indeed. This car comes with a detailed history including all original book packs and service books along with a carefully collated history authenticity.
