The 1995 Porsche 968 is available in both a coupe and a convertible version. Although equipped with a modest 3.0-liter, four-cylinder engine, it packs quite a kick, delivering excellent speeds and performance alongside its sporty competition. It also stands out for its sleek, tapered design, compared to its stouter Porsche brethren. Because it was produced in smaller quantities than previous years, parts for it can be difficult to find, as well as costly. The upside is that it offers some of the best handling amongst the competition. Dropping the range of models featured in the past, the final year is a collectible vehicle for both its rarity and its outstanding performance and features. Offering style and performance, it serves as a fun, leisurely vehicle and has an excellent amount of trunk space, making it practical for everyday use as well.
