Porsche 968 Coupe  
Outstanding Condition 
23 Stamp Service Record 
Meticulous Paperwork 
2 Owners & 85,000 Miles 
An Appreciating Model To Keep 
The pinnacle of Porsche's continuous development of its original 4cyl  
water cooled front engine, even today for the purist driver it remains 
a sensation almost unequaled in any other Sports car. The 968 is the 
ultimate evolution of that classic formula that had been refined since  
the late 70s. There is no substitute for condition, this 968 has been
lady owned since it was a young car and has never been stressed or
abused and as such is in remarakable order with a flawless service
record. Granted you may buy one cheaper however the quality of this
example will remain long after the price has been forgotten.
First registered 01.03.1993 by Porsche cars GB in Reading and remained 
in their name for 4 years until passing to its long term lady owner and  
Porsche enthusiast family who has maintained this Porsche wonderfully 
for the last 20 years. Finished in flattering Slate Grey the colour 
suits the model so well as does the tiptronic gearbox which gives the 
driver the option of lazy or spirited driving mode, it suits the peaky 
power of the engine very well indeed. The service record makes very good  
reading being maintained by OPC and other independents. Accompanying the 
fully stamped service book is an equally impressive presentation folder 
with £000s of bills and all previous mots. Lady driven this engine has  
never been stressed and with a relatively low mileage is still rather box 
fresh to drive, it has truly been a loved car.

Service History - 23 Stamps + Cambelt/Major Service 800 Miles ago 
The car wants for nothing looking and driving exactly as it should thanks 
to knowledgeable enthusiastic owners and those that are prepared to spend. 
The folder is thick with bills that even include the original sales 
documentation and historical letters between Porsche and the family.  
The file dates back to the mid 90s with all the previous mots and 4 
documented timing belt changes. 
In September 2016 and at 84989 miles the cam belt and balance belts plus all 
tensioners and idlers were changed by PCT Porsche specialist in Coventry. 
They also gave the car a major service and a brake fluid change. Other major 
work carried out of late is below. 
- New camshaft chain by dealer at 49000 miles 
- Gearbox overhauled at £2200 cost just 2000 miles ago 
- Complete brake overhaul front to rear plus refurbished hubs £1000 
- New alternator 
- New matching Bridgestone SO2 tyres 
- New battery 
As such this 968 is rather well set up and is a turn key ready to perform  
Sports car. 
Interior features includes full electric pack with windows mirrors and sunroof 
that also doubles up as a targa as it pulls out. Climate control, CD player,  
central locking and 4 way electric seats. Highly original with spec as it  
left the factory. Note all the correct amber lenses and side repeaters, the 
cup mirrors, alloys, the correct spec size and rating of tyres, total toolkit,  
first aid kit, red spare wheel, kompressor, leather owners wallet with all 
handbooks, and the luggage blind. The two original keys are present, with 
all factory labels correct to the boot, b post, petrol flap, under engine, 
and on the glass.  
The metallic paint work is truly stunning with no imperfections. A light 
detailing session reveals a truly original car with quality finish and 
no disappointing cosmetics. The alloys refinished recently by the wheel  
specialist have crested Black centres. All the black work and seals that  
can perish over time is equally fresh. The interior carpets to boot and  
floor are excellent. The dash is in excellent condition and all switchgear 
works as intended. The leather is well fed and again in excellent condition 
having being well treated. The engine bay is truly immaculate. Peeling the  
carpet away in the boot reveals how original it truly is as the images all 
suggest. I have inspected the underside and was amazed at how clean and dry 
it is with no corrosion and needless to say, no leaks. Anyone would struggle 
to source a better 968 and one that is properly set up ready to be enjoyed. 
This car will pass any inspection and reckon it to suit even the fussiest of
