#1 Concours $39,800
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is 'concours.'
#2 Excellent $28,700
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is 'excellent.'
#3 Good $16,100
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. 'Good' is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
This car easily ranks between good and excellent!
The zenith of Porsche's long running front-engined, four-cylinder 924/944 series culminated with the 968 in 1992. What started as an evolution of the 3.0-liter 944 S2 ended up being a car that Porsche claimed was 80% new, with production now being undertaken in Porsche's own Zuffenhausen works as opposed to Audi's Neckarsulm plant, which had been utilized for the 924 and 944. The 968 shared the front-engine/rear transaxle layout of its predecessor, but at the front was now a 236-hp Variocam-equipped 3.0-liter DOHC I-4, and at the rear was a new six-speed transaxle or optional Tiptronic automatic transaxle preserving the trademark 50/50 weight distribution that this platform was famous for. The 944S2/Turbo suspension and Brembo brakes were carried over into the new model.
The Porsche 968 was wrapped in new bodywork that was the product of original 924 designer Harm Lagaay, with updated styling that drew from the 928 at the front and was more integrated than its 924/944 predecessor at the rear. Like the 944S2, the 968 was also available as a cabriolet with a neatly done power top. On the performance side, the 968 could rip off a 0-60 sprint of 5.6 seconds with a 156-mph top speed in six-speed manual-equipped cars. Handling was very forgiving, confidence inspiring, and predictable, which made for accessible and satisfying performance in a practical 2+2.
For Porsche enthusiasts, the 968â€™s performance and practicality, coupled with its low production numbers (only 4,665 coupes and Cabriolets were sent to North America between 1992 and 1995) has led to an enthusiastic following for these cars. The 968 has proven to be reliable as well
