The Porsche 968 Clubsport is a rare and unusual car -- and it's unknown to most people, even Porsche enthusiasts. Today I'm reviewing the 968 Clubsport, and I'm going to show you all around the "GT3" version of the Porsche 968. I'm also going to drive the 968 Clubsport and show you what it's like on the road.

Well, radio was an option, like the AC.

Also, what are you talking about the 968 having the "same" transmission as other Porsches? It was the only Porsche ever to use an Audi 01E FWD longitudinal transaxle, grafted into the back as a RWD transaxle.

You missed the primary function of that "middle" position on the headlight knob. With the engine on, switching from the "left" position to "middle" turns on the driving lights in the bumper without lifting the main headlights. It also enables the fog lights, which won't turn on with the knob in the "left" position.

A lot of the these features are shared with the regular 944 and other models too

928 already using the same headlights, turn signal indicator, and e-brake location.

Clearly this is the TNG Data "car enthusiast" model. Where's Lore so we can turn down Data's feeling parameters?

I owned a 968 cab for a few years seriously better than a base Boxster 986 by a long shot( I’ve owned 2 Boxster) , 6 speed , 240 hp 4 cyl 3.0l (one of the largest 4 cyl ever made) , 50/50 weight distribution, driven alot of 968 and 944s over the years . Driven a 968 with a v8, 968 turbo, 944 with a 968 turbocharged engine , countless 944’s Na and turbo, the 968 is an updated 944 pretty much , they share all the same steering wheel, dash, trim ,center console , front/rear seats, gauges instrument clusters are all the same since 1985.5 and up , the only different are the door panels they have some cool inlays by the door handle , they have a nice clock in the center console , you can buy the mirrors and door handles and install in 944 .. don’t get me started on the mechanical parts because they share like 80% of the same stuff lol besides the lights of the 968 lol they are awesome cars to drive , I had regular seats so it was comfortable too

They made only 12 Porsche 968 TurboS and they were faster than the 993 TurboS at the time. They are like unicorns and could fetch $378,000.

This is a fabulous car. No airbags either : love it ! You made such a big issue about the headlights, but the 928 also had the same thing, so it wasn't unique to this model.

I had a 968 and it’s a headache to maintain the engine. Porsche doesn’t have good track record with front engine cars and the 968 probably the epitome of it. Timing chain and belt is a head ache. Plus finding original parts is expensive and hard. Stick with a base 911 if you want a cheap Porsche.

JALC-x Пре 6 месеци
9:44 popup headlights are more intended to allow for better aerodynamics rather than just making the 'front end look cleaner' so that when they're down and not in use they don't interrupt the flow of air and create drag so the idea here is that despite being exposed when they're down they allow air to pass over them The 300zx ended this trend by having innovative headlights that allowed them to work properly at a steep angle for the first time in any car so that they could be in use while also not interrupting the airflow; same reason the diablo used the 300zx's headlights when they stopped using pop up headlights

Doug, a few other items that were unique to the 968, but not specific to the CS version, were Porsche's first use of variable valve timing known as Variocam. You should of felt that change in power at higher rpm while driving which coincides with the intake cam changing position (only on intake). Also I believe the 968 was the first production Porsche to use a 6-speed manual in 1992. The 911 didn't get one until the 993 in 1995 and also used the same variable intake cam tech. These are fairly important details in Porsche's history and helped drive the tech into theirs cars in the later 90's and beyond. One final thing is the high performance of the brakes that at the time were tested and allowed track use without fading in stock form where most other performance cars at that same time faded badly (aka BMW M cars and the like). I prefer the 968 brakes to my modern BMW anyday. If I had let you borrow a car that was anything unique, I would of informed you of these important details. Now if you could find a 968 Turbo S to review that would stack up better with modern cars or even a Turbo RS if you're lucky enough to find and drive the 1 in 3 made.

Funny how theres plugs and cheapness all over the place, he calls it weight saving, but the Japanese or Koreans do it, he calls it, "cheaping out"
K H Пре 6 месеци
They made a 'Sport' model sold only in the UK which was like a Clubsport with some trim bits added, the usual seats and a bit more comfort but still some of the weight savings and the chassis/suspension mods. They also apparently made 15 or so with a turbo. Also 70-80k USD is ridiculous as the fetch 20-25 UKP in UK.

This video misses an important point: this car is a transaxle; which makes it corner better then normal rwd cars with the engine upfront. (particularly on track this has great advantage) Other then that fun video.

"CS" is not uniquely abbreviated on Porsches. They also have "GT" for Grand Touring, "T" for Touring, "S" for Sport and "RS" for Rennsport,

9:30 The 928 had headlights like that for years. 12:57 The parking brake location is carried over from the 924. 13:16 The 924 and I'm guessing the 944 had the key ignition to the right also. 14:21 The rear seats in the standard model fold down flush and give the same amount of cargo space. 15:47 There's been many 4 cylinder Porsches. Not unusual.
