NO RESERVE 1994 Porsche 968 Cabriolet 6-Speed

Now up for auction at no-reserve is this 1994 Porsche 968 Cabriolet presented in the rare combination of Slate Grey over Cashmere Beige.  According to the 968 Registry, this example is one of only 47 Cabriolet’s to have been imported to North America in Slate Grey, and only 11 examples delivered in this particular color combination.  Originally sold from Parsippany Porsche of New Jersey, this 968 has remained under the care of its current owner since January of 2017. With approximately 84k miles showing on the odometer, this 968 Cabriolet has undergone a recent timing belt service and is now being offered without reserve by its seller in Rhode Island, accompanied by its original books, a collection of records, and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity.

This 968 is said to have been recently treated to a full glass-out respray in its rare factory color of Slate Grey. The cabriolet top and window were also replaced in December of 2017 including new cables and frame restoration, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery. This 968 wears factory 7.5x17” Cup 1 cast alloy wheels in the front and Maxilite-reproduction 17” Cup 1 wheels in the rear, which are currently dressed in Hankook tires.

Inside, the cabin is configured in Cashmere Beige and black with partial leather seats.  Factory equipment includes a power-operated cabriolet top, a central locking and alarm system, automatic climate control, power windows, mirrors and seats as well as the optional HiFi Sound System (490). The seller reports two small hairline cracks on the dashboard near the defroster vents as well as separation of the center console lid. A Continental Bluetooth stereo has been installed and is reported to be fully functional along with all other accessories aside from the power seat switches.

This 968 is equipped with its factory 3.0 L inline 4-cylinder DOHC engine paired with a 6-speed G44 manual transaxle. When compared with the outgoing 944 S2 model, the 968’s powertrain featured newly-optimized induction and exhaust systems, a dual-mass flywheel, updated engine management electronics, and the “VarioCam” variable valve timing system which was a first for road-going Porsche models.  Regularly scheduled maintenance is said to have been addressed by the seller including a service in March of 2020 which included a new timing belt, balance shaft belt, roller, and tensioner.

This sale will include the original owner’s manuals, warranty book, tool kit, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, a binder of receipts, and a clean title. Offered without reserve while finished in a rare and timeless color combination, this open-top transaxle Porsche provides an opportunity that is not to be missed.

    @PaulLittell top video uploaded to the cloud. Sorry, had to shoot it myself. Should be up on the site shortly.

    @fishbone_alpha Thanks for the info

  • fishbone_alpha (seller) 3 weeks, 5 daysago

    @PaulLittell Sure, I purchased the paint myself from Sherwin Williams auto. I prepped the car, had it professionally done, and then I wet sanded/cut it/polished it myself to save some labor cost. Will video the top function first thing.

  • fishbone_alpha (seller) 3 weeks, 5 daysago

    @PaulLittell The car has been with me since I purchased it from the owner in Manalapan, NJ in ‘17. I’m in the Navy, so VA Beach, Pearl Harbor, and now Newport with me. Paid quite a bit to ship it to and from the mainland.

  • PaulLittell (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 5 daysago

    Can you please tell me [and perhaps others] what the $400 slip for 'paint' means in relation to a high quality professional paint job?

  • PaulLittell (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 5 daysago

    Lovely looking car. Had one. Sold it and miss it. Need another. Can you do a video of the electric top mechanism in action? The invoices show an interesting geographic history. Where has this car been and is it now in RI?

    COA uploaded to the cloud, along with some key receipts.

  • fishbone_alpha (seller) 4 weeksago

    @mginn Unfortunately they do not. They were the 16” wheels and in bad shape. I intended on replacing them anyway. Sold them on to a 944 owner who reconditioned them.

  • mginn (registered bidder) 4 weeksago

    Do the original wheels come with the car?

  • Gto100 (registered bidder) 4 weeksago

    @fishbone_alpha thanks

  • fishbone_alpha (seller) 4 weeksago

    @manuals4ever Will do, it will have to be this evening so please be patient. I will post some contents of the binder as well. I've been meaning to do that so I'll just take care of it tonight.

  • fishbone_alpha (seller) 4 weeksago

    @Gto100 I understand, it's a bit misleading. Great question and rest assured, the forward/aft, and recline adjustments are manual only. The switches control lumbar and height adjustment.

  • manuals4ever (registered bidder) 4 weeksago

    Can you post the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity?

  • Gto100 (registered bidder) 4 weeksago

    Have you looked into the seat adjustment switches and why they do not work ? I am 6’2 so need the seat adjustment if I was to win this

    @356Man yes it does, and it blows cold. The climate unit and interior temp sensor was replaced as well.

  • 356Man (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    Does this car not have A.C.,or did you just fail to list it.?
