Chassis no. WP0ZZZ96ZRS800073. Riviera Blue over gray cloth. 2990/236hp, 6-speed, Michelin tires, tools, spare, jack air compressor, storage bags.

Evaluation: Japanese market RoW (Rest of World) 968 showing 70,825 km (44,009 miles). Ignore the mileage: it has been extraordinarily well-looked-after and detailed to perfection. It is also finished in gorgeous Riviera Blue over gray cloth seats with Porsche script that look way cooler than the regular old leather buckets seen on most 968s. This is an exceptional car. The color and sunroof delete are also huge pluses for Porsche people.

Bottom Line: The last, most developed and quickest of the front-engine four-cylinder Porsches, the 968 is worth about three times was it was 10 years ago, but this price still exceeds anything we’ve seen for a base model car. It also far exceeds the $89,250 it sold for just last November on Bring a Trailer, and it’s not like it flew under the radar on a Porsche-packed site like BaT. The 968 is a relatively rare car, but if we start seeing more of them pop up for sale after this result, we won’t be surprised.

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.
