Club Sport in lightweight trim specification

The lightweight Club Sport was aimed at the enthusiast seeking pure driving thrills without the need for certain luxuries. A Club Sport with all manual features weighs between 50 - 100kg less than the coupe (depending on the options fitted to the coupe) which is as a result of the changes listed here. It should be noted that the Club Sport treatment is not as radical as the alterations carried out to the RS versions of other Porsches, however there are enough changes to make a noticeable difference.

Club Sports in true lightweight configuration can be hard to find, resulting in them commanding the highest prices of all 968s, but when compared to other lightweight models they do currently seem to be undervalued. However, over the last couple of years the prices of all 968s have started to increase and many are now starting to be added to private collections.

Although commended for its handling prowess, the Club Sport does have some practicalities - you can even fit in your spare set of wheels and tyres to take to the track!

Above top: For the UK market, the Club Sport decal was a no cost delete option. Originally wheels were mostly colour coded to the body. It is often written that Club Sports were only available in 'black', 'guards red', 'maritime blue', 'grand prix white' and 'speed yellow' but cars were produced in many other colours between 1994 and 1995

Right: with the removal of the central locking and electric rear hatch release, access to the boot can only be gained by using the manual pull release behind the rear seats. A plastic cap is in place of the normal rear boot lock
