The 968 was developed directly from the 944, which meant adopting its well-honed and well-proven running gear, whilst presenting a fresh design aesthetic that made it feel like a significantly new model. The standard 968 was a great all-round sports car, but as a last hurrah to this enduring lineage Porsche wanted to create a car tailored more for the pure enthusiast and, in particular, one that would excel in competition. In late 1992, the 968 Club Sport was introduced and, whilst it was mechanically identical to the standard 968 and shared the same 3.0-litre engine (producing 225lb-ft of torque and 240bhp) and 6-speed gearbox (situated at the rear axle, which helped give the car it's excellent weight distribution), it differed in a number of important ways.This track-focused run-out model adopted the philosophy of less is more by removing all luxury-related equipment from the basic build specification. With the no-frills approach, less weightand clever suspension, Porsche could now focus media attention on the Club Sport's fast road and track abilities. As soon as the press got hold of the Club Sport and discovered what a brilliant drivers car it was, the credibility of the 968 went through the roof. Even Walter Rhrl reckoned it was the best handling car that Porsche made (after driving an example previously owned by our vendor).The CS achieved a 'Performance Car of The Year' award in 1993 from Performance Car magazine in the UK. In total, just 1,923 CS examples were produced worldwide and it's now rightly regarded as one of the best driving Porsche cars ever made.The car presented here is a very special Club Sport and was first delivered new to Dr Ing h.c.f. Porsche at PorscheStrae 42, Stuttgart 70435; chassis 96ZRS815311 was ordered in almost standard specification with the only exceptions to Clubsport puritanism being a sunroof and a Blaupunkt RCR42 radio cassette.As enthusiastswill know, the standard factory Club Sport specification comprises lowered suspension, colour-coded wheels, lightweight fixed bucket seats, reduced sound deadening, manual window regulators/mirrors, cable boot release, a lighter wiring loom/alternator/battery and only a single radiator fan.Registered as one of the infamous factory S-L cars, S-LU 8167 spent almost three years in Porsche ownership at Zuffenhausen performing official duties as a 1994 Model Year car.Between 1994 and 1996m, the service book shows 4 services, all stamped by the factory service centre at 4,900km (03/94), 22,783km (09/94), 44,680km (06/95) & 58,460km (01/96) and showing the same Auftrag Nr. (order) of 73534530.On the 3rd July 1996, an official warranty card shows the warranty being extended at 61,000km and a TUV Certificate in November 1996 shows 63,000kmIn November 1996, German documents show the ownership was transferred from Porsche to Friedemann Schnieder of Frth, Nuremberg and registered as F-E 7635.In January 1998, the car was imported into the United Kingdom at 82,200km by a James Whitely who passed the vehicle to renowned Porsche specialists, 'AutoFarm' in Oxfordshire. Its first MOT was dated 27/01/98 and it was registered as L826 LTF on the 30th January 1998 prior to being sold onthe 6th February 1998to Alan Durrant of Bristol.It then passed through two more owners until purchased by Bob Maclaren & Steve Bennet of 'Circuit Driver' magazine (Steve subsequently became editor of '911 Porsche World') in April 2005 at 118,000km.
