Bodywork Condition: Near flawless. Paintwork is in beautiful condition throughout, including side skirts & bumpers without stone chips or scratches, unmarked door handles and mirrors, wheels with no corrosion and paintwork that's so reflective it shows clear reflections of the surroundings when we photographed it. We did find 2 small pin dents on the driver's door and some chips of paint on the rim of the o/s/r wheel (See pictures of these). Too small to repair but mentioned to provide a complete report.
Note the underside's condition. This 968 was supplied new by Porsche Japan and has never been driven on roads with salt, grit, sand or mud so it's probably one of the very best left in existence.
Interior Condition: Unmarked, with no significant wear on seats, steering wheel, shift knob or carpets. It looks much like new.
As with many 968's the dashboard has developed some cracks on the original vinyl through age & shrinkage, so to stop this the previous owner obtained a neatly fitted dash mat which works well, whilst also reducing reflective glare.
Test Drive: Everything works on this 968 as it's meant to. Electrics are all in fine form (No rust or corrosion to cause bad earth, or failing relays!). From the first impressions of the unmarked interior to doors that still shut with a reassuring solidity; everything is as it should be. The engine settles to a quiet and smooth idle from cold start. Once warmed it offers effortless torque and a ravenously good rev range combined with a flawlessly usable 6 speed box with tight handling. In essence, this 968 is truly superb and will satisfy an enthusiast looking for the best available by far, with genuine low mileage from new.
OTR price: £12,695 includes: 6 month's road tax, new MOT, full valet just before completion and 12 month's comprehensive warranty (By the same company Porsche UK supplies it's used car warranties from).
If you're outside the UK, do ask about our FOB packags to deliver direct to your nearest port. Don't delay - as once this car's gone it's unlikely we'll be able to locate another of this calibre again.
This unique Porsche 968 can be reserved with a deposit of £1,500 for prompt shipping anywhere worldwide. For further information or to reserve.
I've been obsessing about this "star ruby/rubystone red" color all night, and what happens? I find a 968 coupe for sale...in this very color! Packed with 64,450 miles, this old girl's barely broken in, but here's the interesting bit. It was originally sold in Japan, and then brought back into England to be sold. What doesn't belong is the silly RS label on her flanks because a 968 RS didn't exist without the turbo...furthermore, the ad has the image of the engine with a description of a "3.o litre flat-four." Nein!
At any rate, this is one hell of a pretty 968 at a pretty good price providing it's as good as the ad plays it up to be.
