Chassis no. WP0ZZZ96ZPS815626; Engine no. 42P02672. White over black cloth. 2990/240hp, 6-speed, Recaro competition seats, 17-inch wheels, factory cassette stereo. Comes with an extra pair of Recaro seats.

Evaluation: Rare stripped out Club Sport version, which was sold without insulation, power windows, rear seats, or a steering wheel airbag. Represented with 73,073 km (45,405 mi). Last serviced three years ago. A few bits of paint have come off the rear badge. A few small rock chips on the nose. The interior looks spotless. Some dirt and wear under the hood. Overall, the condition matches the mileage.

Bottom Line: The classic Porsche trend of sportier but more uncomfortable cars selling for big premiums extends beyond 911s. This 968 Club Sport, which is among the quickest and most desirable of the four-cylinder front-engine transaxle cars (924, 944, and 968), sold for over twice as much as a base 968 in this condition ordinarily would.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
