+1.

Would love to hear about all the factory original 968 turbo S parts that were used to build it.

Exact details no, Emanuel knows though. Cost was north of $150K for parts. I see that this car sold back in 2012 for $72K at the Amelia Island auction. Somebody got a deal there, so it will be north of there now.

FWIW - I came across this parts list a few years ago. You can try to run them through the typical webstores and will find that they just.don't.exist. anymore.

Fortunately, you can build a much better performing turbo S now with all the new products. I plan on doing just that with mine.

true that, but if you want to build a period correct 968 Turbo S you would need all those hard to find parts to do it right.

Yes, very true, but I am not that guy, I try to modify every single Item I can on all of my vehicles. If it is newer and better, I will change it.

Jeff,
I am looking at a coupe and hoping you can give me option info and any history you might have on the car.
It’s a ‘93. VIN 820195.

Looks like a black/black coupe. This is the most popular color and combo on the coupe.
3 factory options,
LT partial leather in black,
249 Tiptronic transmission
437 full power 8 way driver's seat

I have not seen the car before.
Jeff
