I think you mean 968 CS as in ClubSport. The 968 ClubSport is a rare version of the 968 that was stripped down for lightness and with a tuned suspension and braking system. It was available in Europe only. The 968S, or 968 Sport, is somewhere between your run-of-the-mill 968 Coupe and 968 ClubSport. It is a tad lighter, has the tuned suspension, but isn't quite the track star of the 968CS.

The 968 Sport wasn't specifically available in the US either though a Coupe with M030 option suspension is as close as damit.

Now there was the ultra rare 968 Turbo S and 968 Turbo RS. More info...

968 Turbo S : http://vista.pca.org/stl/968t.htm
968 Turbo RS : http://www.968turbo.homestead.com/

Karl.

PS - There's one mistake on the http://vista.pca.org/stl/968t.htm page. The compression ratio of the 968 Turbo S was 8.0:1, not 7.5:1 as posted on the page.

um i think there are only like 6 turbo Ss in the entire world, and they are worth more than any of us can afford to spend on a car

Only 14 turbo Ss and 4 turbo RSs were built. Porsche didn't build a 'regular' turbo model as it would have been too close to the 911 turbo of the time.

If your pockets are deep enough, you can of course turbocharge or supercharge a regular 968

Check this link for pics of an RS:

you are wasting thread space by replying... isn't this forum about porsches?

because last time i checked, that's what i was asking about... i didn't know some questions were worth more than others...

i do hope to get a 968 after my 944. is it wrong of me to ask questions now or later? either way, i'll be asking them eventually.

does it take much to put a turbo on a 968?

Asking if you should replace that timing belt is like asking if you should re-use a condom that may have in hole in it with a hooker.

924S Clubsport? There are plenty of 924S without power options and some with "sport" suspension too. Is that what you mean?

Never heard of a 924S Clubsport.

I know there was a 944 Clubsport, as well as a 944 Turbo Cup.

I don't recall the specific differences between the S and the RS other than they made fewer than 10 RS (think they made 6)

Short answer, the S is priced somewhere around $75,000 USD, have not seen an RS other than in the museum in Stuttgart.

944 ClubSport? Never heard of it.

The closest thing I can think of is the 944 'sport' option that gave the car factory KONI yellows (like on mine).

A few owners have turbo'd their 968s. PorscheG96 on this board (he doesn't post that often anymore) has turbo'd his gorgeous 968. Maybe look around at 968.net for more info.

In the UK, a 924S spec'd like that is called a poverty model.........

Sounds like someone specially ordered it, which all the better for you.
I'm very suprised about the lack of passenger mirror as I thought that was mandatory.

Rare? I don't know about that, I read Porsche made more 968CS models than regular models!
