The 968 'Club Sport' or 'CS' was Porsche's attempt to appeal to track-minded enthusiasts by capitalising on the excellent chassis dynamics of the familiar 944/968 series. By lowering the car by 20 mm, tweaking the suspension and stripping off some of the 'luxury' elements of the 968 a credible 100 Kg weight-saving was achieved which allowed the CS to sprint to 60 mph in 6 seconds and then on to a top speed of 162 mph. The Club Sport was even crowned 'Performance Car of the Year' in 1993 by Performance Car magazine in the UK going some way to establishing the CS as a sports coupe with serious credentials.
This very presentable, right hand drive, 1994 example on sale here is finished in Solid Black with Black cloth interior complemented with red 'Club Sport' side-panel script and red painted 17" Cup alloy wheels. Originally supplied new in New Zealand this 968 CS was imported and registered in the UK in 2016 and comes with an appropriate V5 document.
The odometer currently shows a reading of 76937 Kms (48085 miles) and a major service was carried out in July 2018. This service included replacement of the timing belt and all ancillary belts plus the fitting of four new Michelin Sport tyres.
The VIN confirms that this is a genuine 968 Club Sport and comes with a six-speed manual transmission, three-spoke steering-wheel, non-electric windows, body-coloured spoiler, sunroof delete option and manually adjusted seats. However, there is the useful addition of air-conditioning, Blaupunkt Honolulu 50 CD player, the important limited-slip differential, a top-tinted windscreen, power steering and a pair of split-folding rear seats.
