Big Four: 1994 Porsche 968 Cabrio

I have to admit that I’ve had a soft spot for the front-engine water cooled Porsches from the 70s/80s/90s for a while…or maybe that’s a soft spot in my head…I dunno. What I do know is that my head would enjoy the California sunshine when I’m cruising around in one of the prettiest cars ever to come from Stuttgart and of the 2248 convertibles that were imported into North America between 1992 and 1995, this isn’t a bad way to go. Find this 1994 Porsche 968 Cabrio offered for $18500 in Newport, RI via craigslist. Tip from Cory.

This is a strong #3-#2 condition car. It’s a prime example of a 968. It is one of 47 cabs in Slate Gray exported to the US from Germany from 1992-95 and an unknown fewer number with Cashmere Beige interior. I’ve owned the car for 4 1/2 years and I’ve restored it to its current condition.

Two small rips on the dash at the defrost vents.
The manual seat adjustments for forward/back and recline work. The power switches for the lumbar/height adjustments do not. The switches wear and are normally the culprit. I replaced them on a 968 coupe I used to own. Not a difficult job.

I will include Porsche Certificate of Authenticity with sale and 17″ Cup 1 wheels. If you want those wheels, along with the original 16″ Cup 1 wheels, I’m pretty firm on price. Without the 17″Cup 1’s, I may be more flexible selling it with original equipment wheels.

Please, serious inquiries only. I don’t have time for tire kickers or joy rides. Thanks for looking!
