This 1995 Porsche 968 Coupe has the most desirable six-speed transmission, along with less than 34,000 careful
original miles. There is a Porsche plaque on the passenger dash designating this to be a "Limited Edition Coupe,
120/258". As one of the last 968s made, this is an especially collectible example. The designation provides for a
few extras, including an upgraded stereo, metallic black paint, limited slip and gray leather. You can see this
plaque in the photos, as well as a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity which validates the breeding of this
vehicle. It is an original, unaltered (except for the radio) example of an exceptionally strong perfoming sports
car.
This has been my 18th Porsche of various types. The 968 is the pinnacle of the 924,944,951 lineage, but was
only produced for four years ending in 1995, and only utilizing 20% of the 944 parts in common. The 236 hp four
cylinder power plant produces 225 foot pounds, which is as much power at the standard 911 up until 1989. It rocks!
Zero to sixty is under six seconds along with an old school EU exhaust rumble. 50/50 weight distribution and
limited slip differential produces actually better handling than the 911 (and I love 911s too).
The condition of this car is impeccable. Clean carfax with no accident history. I've owned her for five or
six years and bought her from the past president of the Polish Porsche Club whom lived in CA. Prior to CA the car
resided in New Mexico. I think driven by a physician whom lived on a gravel driveway. The car is in show
condition with only very minor defects, namely stone chip repairs and a small cut in the seat (photo shows). One
chip is about the size of a dime and poorly repaired. It was covered up by a bra that I will send with the car but
didn't use myself. The seat cut is about an inch long, is superficial, and has not grown in five years.
EVERYTHING else concerning the car condition and maintenance status is excellent. Including the recent timing belt
and water pump service. She is an eye catcher and could easily be shown as is. It was recently chosen for the
cover of the regional Porsche Club magazine. The Blaupunkt Toronto CD that is installed will come with the
original cassette. Newer Michelin Pilot Sports over very, very nice cup wheels that are accurate and original.
Fully serviced and everything works like new.
There are no disappointments here. If you want the best, this is among a very few of the finest at the top of
the marque. With care, it should be a pleasing investment over time with a favorable return. I have obsessive
records for my ownership, and some from before. I'm very pleased to show the car to your inspector. I am
expecting to sell her to a collector whom recognizes the appeal to this rare type of Porsche, and welcome your
questions.

Porsche tuners 9ff, SpeedArt going bankrupt

Thu, 19 Sep 2013 11:30:00 EST

Times are tough in Europe right now, and that unfortunately has reaped disastrous consequences for some of its smallest niche automakers. Gumpert, Wiesmann, Artega and Lola have all filed for bankruptcy this year, and it appears that tuners are not immune to the tough times, either.
Word coming in from across the pond suggests that 9ff and SpeedArt - two of the biggest names in Porsche tuning - have filed for bankruptcy as well. 9ff is best known for the GT9, a radical hypercar barely based on the 911, while SpeedArt was once of the foremost tuners of Porsches.
Fortunately there are still plenty of tuners ready to take a wrench to your Elfen, but the reported demise of these two makes the market a little bit smaller and - for Porsche enthusiasts - maybe the world a little bit lonelier, too.

Porsche 911 and Citro"en DS lovechild would look like this

Wed, 06 Nov 2013 16:40:00 EST

The early Porsche 911 and the Citroën DS were two cars produced in the same era (though the DS launched in 1955, nearly 10 years before the 911), but they were vastly different from each other. The 911 was a uniquely German, pure-bred sports car, while the French-built DS had four doors and focused more on ride quality than sporting intentions. That made it all the more surprising when we came across the 911DS, a creation that binds the rear half of the Citroën to the front of an early, longhood 911.
The folks at Brandpowder are behind the creation, which we surmise was an exercise in design rather than an actual, completed project (some of the images look Photoshopped), but it's compelling nonetheless, with a turbocharged flat-six providing 260 horsepower. We hope someone builds it - though we're sure if that happened the early 911 crowd would cry afoul at one of its increasingly rare and valuable Porsches being grafted onto an old French car.
But as Brandpowder points out lightheartedly, perhaps the creation could transcend popular car culture: "The 911DS represents the effort of two countries, a genuine attempt to join their energy and talent into one thing. We hope Germany and France will be inspired by Brandpowder's story, as a metaphor for a better and greater Europe."

Motor Trend holds World's Greatest Drag Race for the third time

Fri, 23 Aug 2013 20:00:00 EST

As part of Motor Trend's Best Driver's Car competition, the buff book has held its third iteration of the World's Greatest Drag Race. With an airfield and a dozen of the world's finest performance cars at its disposal (oh, and a helicopter), the MT team did what any good group of enthusiasts would do, and tried to figure what car could cover a quarter mile the quickest. World's greatest drag race, indeed.
The contestants, as MT points out, cover a huge variety of engine types, drivelines, aspiration types and body styles, making for a genuinely varied and interesting field of competitors. Here's the full list of cars taking part.
