For a car designed as a stopgap model between the outgoing Porsche 944 and the forthcoming Boxster, the Porsche 968 was quite an achievement. Voted by Performance Car magazine the best handling car 1993, the 968 had a lot going for it. Despite its excellence, the four-cylinder Porsche was launched at a problem time, with recession hit Britain largely turning its back on the marque, associated as it was with eighties excess. This makes it quite a rare sight on Britain's roads, and coupled with the fact that it was only produced for three years, makes used examples less than commonplace.
If you're a fan of the marque you'll know about the 968's driver appeal, its reliability and ruggedness. If not, a test drive has the ability to convert even the most hardened cynic. Since the 968 range was axed at the tail end of 1995, Porsche have gone from strength to strength, but a drive in any 968 model is enough to remind you that many of today's sports coupe's would be treated to a receding view of the Porsche's bulbous rump should they try to mix it with Porsche's brawny baby.
You'll need to tread a bit carefully when looking for a good 968, especially the Club Sport versions, but good ones aren't impossible to locate. Find out as much as you can about the previous keeper and insist on a Porsche service history to maximise the odds of landing a decent example. The 968's rarity means that it could well become a future classic. For a powerful sports coupe that can still show today's pretenders a few tricks there may not be a better time to get hold of one.
