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, air conditioning 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.

This is the car all 968 drivers dream of! This Porsche 968 Club Sport is one of Just 179 UK examples supplied new at Porsche Centre, Mann Island in Liverpool and was first registered on the 29th March 1994. It is presented in Guards Red with black cloth bucket seats and has a tinted sunroof. However, this is not just your normal 968! The previous owner set about upgrading it to create the ultimate Club Sport which he felt Porsche had failed to do! So he had fitted by marque specialist Ninemeister of Warrington, who are independent Porsche tuners, a US sourced ProCharger P1-1SC Supercharger which gives this fabulous sports car 350bhp and also upgraded the discs with Porsche 993 Turbo discs and calipers. A new limited slip differential was fitted and Leda adjustable suspension, making the car very fast and agile. The result is that this car is just as at home on a circuit as it is on the road! However, to increase the scope for circuit tweak ability, it was fitted with a nylon-bushed lightweight Pro Series anti-roll bar kit from Weltmeister in the US. The car comes with a comprehensive service history from new with its original service book, wallet and even has its original Vehicle Identification sticker in one of the books. This really is a ‘Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing!!’
