I've owned my 1992 Porsche 968 Cab for three years. Nothing has broken, I've only had to do the normal upkeep. Its build quality is much better than my Mercedes Coupe's! I installed a Promax chip for better torque. It really helps, especially in traffic with the AC on. I purchased it with about 42,000 miles, now it has about 53,000. Its radio was really bad and the top makes a little too much wind noise, but what a car! And yes, the girls do take notice!
The great build quality, looks, comfort (I'm 6'4"), and reliability. Porsche Club events are great.
This is my second Porsche. My first, a
928S. The 928 is a more powerful and
more luxurios sports car. However, I
prefer my 968 because of its agility,
design, handling and its practicality.
My 968 cabriolet is a 1992 model and is
still a head turner some 12 years
later. This car was always on my wish
list. I saw it in the back while
passing a dealership one night and just
had to have it. The next morning I took
the day off from work and was there
before opening with $$$. To all
prospective 968 owners: if you are
looking for an affordable, reliable
Porsche this is the car to get. Sorry
guys mine is not for sale. "Porsche
There is no Substitute"
Women love this car. Key features are
the 6 speed manual transmission,
convertable top, 17" 993 cup wheels
with 245 55 17 Pirellis in the rear.
Slate Grey Metallic Paint, 3.0 litre
variocam engine pushing under 240 HP.
The design is perfect.
There are no improvements that I can
think of. I think many cars of today
still need to catch up in more ways
I bought my 92 Porsche 968 about 9
years ago. I have no regrets. Being a
mechanical engineer, I appreciate the
design, the handling, the acceleration,
the brakes, the fuel economy and the
fun to drive nature of this car. I did
not baby this car and drove it nearly
every day except when I had a knee
operation. It has 102,000 miles on it
and still runs great. It looks good
and I don't plan on selling it anytime
Sporty looks and performance while not

handling but maybe to stiff for my
