1993 PORSCHE 968 CLUB SPORT - 43,658 MILES

This Porsche 968 Club Sport is a superb example of a coveted lightweight special, finished in a desirable ‘purist’ specification. It is powered by the all-aluminium 3.0-litre four-cylinder engine, producing around 237bhp, driven through a six-speed Getrag manual transmission. The odometer indicates just 43,658 miles, which is believed to be correct.

Understood to be one of just 179 cars originally delivered to the UK, this Club Sport was first registered on 1 October 1993, and has five previous registered keepers on the log book. The seller acquired the car nine years ago via 911 Sport, which recommissioned the car as it had been stored for around 10 years. He has since covered some 3,000 miles behind the wheel.

Its bodywork and paint is reported to be in excellent condition, with no known panel damage. There may be a few very minor marks in the areas typically prone to stone chips, but it presents as a very smart example. This car appears to have all the pared-back features, including the manual boot release, and rear wiper delete. It rides on the 17-inch colour-coded ‘Cup’ alloy wheels, which are free of kerb marks, showing only some minor lacquer peel in a few places.

In the cabin, this 968 Club Sport has just two lightweight bucket seats, with the backs painted to match the Grand Prix White body colour, and upholstered in black Nomex fabric. The rear seats have been deleted, and it has manual-winding windows and no air-conditioning. The steering wheel and gear knob appear to be original, and there is a 1990s Kenwood KRC-658R stereo installed in the dashboard. All of the switchgear works as it should, and the seller reports no electrical issues or warning lights.

Its last scheduled maintenance was carried out in November 2019 at 43,453 miles by Porsche specialist Strasse in Leeds. This consisted of standard annual oil and filter service. Prior to this, it was also serviced in June 2018 at 42,586 miles, when the spark plugs were also renewed, and in May 2017 at 42,500 miles, when the cambelt and balance belt were both replaced. A full summary of the service history is included below.

There is a gap in the service history between 1999 and 2011, and the seller was told by 911 Sport that the car was laid up in storage next to a Porsche 911 during this time. After he purchased the car, 911 Sport carried out a major service, renewal of the drive belts, an overhaul of the brakes, and new tyres. A comprehensive technical inspection was undertaken to ensure that the car was in good running order, and it has been regularly serviced during his ownership since then.

The most recent MOT test was on 20 August 2020 at 43,653 miles, and the car was given a first-time pass with no advisories. The wheels are shod in Continental SportContact tyres all round, which the seller states are in very good condition, all with more than 5mm of tread.

Accompanying the car is the original leather bound book pack, including the driver’s manual and stamped maintenance record, as well as a Kenwood audio guide and a 968 Club Sport brochure. The tool kit, space-saver spare wheel, and one immobiliser fob are also present.

This Porsche 968 Club Sport is a superb example of a sought-after modern classic. While many cars with the same chassis upgrades were loaded with luxury options to become ‘Sport’ models, this Club Sport has the no-frills specification preferred by purists. Given its well-documented low mileage, and impressive cosmetic and mechanical condition, this will no doubt appeal to serious marque collectors as a 968 that ticks all the boxes.
