If you can't afford to hop on the raging-bull market for the unequaled Porsche 911, that's okay. They are lousy and unbalanced, ready to swing like an axe into the nearest tree. Here we have an example of what Porsche can do when they build a car with the engine in the correct place: the front.
The 968 was the final iteration of Porsche's transaxle experiment; an evolution that started with the 924 and continued with the 944 and 968. This particular example is a manual-coupe unicorn from a model series littered with underperforming automatic transmissions and blasphemous convertibles. Plus, it was built in an era when Porsche over-designed every component of their cars. This will be as solid and long-standing as the Egyptian pyramids.
For some reason the market never loved these front-engined Porsche's too well. Maybe someday it'll appreciate like the 911 and get the respect it deserves.
