The 968 came directly from the 944 but towards the end of its development, Porsche needed a more modern motorcar with which to present the advances that were coming from the factory at that time. From 1993 through to 1995, Porsche offered a lighter-weight 'Club Sport' version of the 968 designed for enthusiasts seeking increased track performance. Much of the 968's luxury-oriented equipment was removed or taken off the options list; less sound deadening material was used, electrical windows were replaced with crank-driven units, upgraded stereo systems, A/C and sunroof were still optional as on the standard coupé and convertible models. Porsche could focus media attention on the Club Sport variants fast road and track abilities. The Club Sport variant achieved a 'Performance Car Of the Year' award in 1993 from Performance Car magazine in the UK.
