Carrying on a tradition which had been started by the 924 25 years earlier, the 1991 Porsche 968 offered a budget-priced Porsche to the enthusiast which was far more refined and civilized than any of its ancestors. Too refined and too well-honed for some Porsche's fans' liking, in fact. It used one of the biggest displacement four-cylinder engines in recent production history, which had balancer shafts to run smoothly, plus 16 valves for more performance, in fact over ~:0hlip (22kW) more than the 944 S2's similar engine. The gearbox was set at the rear to maximize weight-distribution and it balanced the car beautifully. So good was the handling that people remarked it required less driver involvement and hence wasn't a real Porsche. This Club Sport model rectified that, with 17-inch (432mm) wheels, no back seat nor power windows thus saving 117lb (53kg) weight.
