The ultimate development of Porsche’s long-running 924/944 series, the 968 was launched in August 1991 and built alongside the 928 in both coupe and cabriolet variants, at the Zuffenhausen factory. Using an updated version of the 944’s platform, the 968 was powered by a sophisticated new Variocam engine, the big four pot unit displacing just under 3-litres and developing a healthy output of 240 brake horsepower and 305 Nm of torque. Mated to either a six-speed Getrag manual transmission or the Bosch developed Tiptronic five-speed automatic, the all-alloy motor boasted twin overhead camshafts, four valves per cylinder, with the Variocam regulating the inlet valve timing via an electro-hydraulic system. Other features included power-assisted ZF rack-and-pinion steering, ABS brakes as standard and revised suspension, while the 968’s bodywork was a blend of contemporary Porsche design language.
