1992 Porsche 968
The Porsche 968 would be the final iteration of Porsche’s transaxle 4-cylinder cars, having begun almost 15 years prior in 1976 with the 924. In that time, the Porsche transaxle cars had gone from being a curiosity, to a respected and capable machine in its own right amongst the automotive world. A successor to the 944, the 968 retains the earlier cars’ rear transaxle giving it almost perfect weight distribution, leading the car to feel well planted in through corners. The 3.0 liter engine was the first to use Porsche’s VarioCam variable intake camshaft control providing the driver with optimum power throughout the rev range. As the last of the front-engined rear-wheel drive sports cars from Porsche, the 968 is a capstone piece of Porsche history.
