1992 Porsche 968The Porsche 968 is a sports car made by PorscheAG from 1992 to 1995. It was the final evolution of a line of water-cooledfront-enginedrear wheel drive models begun almost 20 years earlier with the 924, taking over the entry-level position in the company lineup from the 944 with which it shared about 20% of its parts. The 968 was Porsche's last new front-engined vehicle before the introduction of the Cayenne SUV in 2003. It was powered by an updated version of the 944's straight-fourengine, with a displacement of 3.0L with 104mm bore, 88mm stroke and producing 240PS (237bhp; 177kW); 4th largest ever 4 cylinder engine at that time. Changes to the 968's powertrain from the 944 included the addition of Porsche's then-new VarioCamvariable valve timing system. The engine was actually detuned to make it slower than the Porsche 911. Porsche Motorsports Research and Development built and provided a full "Race" version (stripped out 968 Turbo S) for Porsche's customer race teams. The 968 Turbo RS was available in two variations; a 337bhp (251kW) version using the K27 turbocharger from the Turbo S, and an international spec version which used a KKK L41 turbocharger producing 350bhp (260kW). Only 4 were ever produced, with one in 1992.
This car was built and tested with 143 miles on a professionally built engine using a MOTEC system and thousands $ in upgrades. It uses the original 16 valve engine and head to generate over 350 whp which can be further boosted with a special order upgraded K27 turbocharger. The original 968 Turbos used the 944 type 8 valve heads. The car is a USA registered car which was imported to South Korea while on assignment with the US Government. It's ready to find a new home back in the USA...or elsewhere. Shipping is included in the price.
