If you are looking for a 4 banger P-car to race, this is the one.
Originally raced in the Firestone Firehawk series with modest success, it was alternately garaged and lightly run for the decade that followed. If you are into racing nostalgia, the vintage Kelley-Moss sticker speaks to the track prep, while the vintage Speedvision and Professional Sportscar Racing stickers remind you of an era before the Speed Channel decided it was better to show reality shows than actual racing. How did that work out Speed Channel?
A significant investment in bringing the best out of this great 968 Firehawk race car, has created a class winning, season champion of a car, that is both safe and an absolute pleasure to drive.
Noting that Firehawk 968's were listed in Porsche Club specs, but there was actually no specific rule set to regulate them, this car was the standard to which the rules were created. If you want to race a 968 Firehawk, this was by definition, the first!
Here is a partial list of the interesting features of this car.
o Porsche Club Log Book
o Original Porsche 3.0 Liter 4 Cylinder engine
o RS Barn header
o RS Barn cams
o RS Barn chip

o Original Porsche Motorsport lightweight single mass flywheel (this is worth the price of the car itself)

o Racepak G2X GPS and data logging system
o Moton Club Sport 2-way adjustable shocks front and rear

Not only that, there are some additional fun things we are throwing into the mix. Ever try to get 968/944 rear glass? Well a spare comes with it to save you that pain.
Want to run 16" wheels so you can play with the spec 944 boys? A set of BBS three piece 16" wheels and spares come with it.
Need a spare set of 18" wheels? Got you covered, with Hoosier race tires that have never seen pavement to boot. Oh, and for a real fun weekend get some take-off Michelin Cup tires. I promise, you will pine for them from then on.
We still are working under the original MCO from Porsche. That said, the fun we have had tracking this, makes it very much a "used/as-is" car, and it is listed as such.
With a huge 3 liters at its disposal it has all the grunt you could ever need, and with the MO30 ventilated brakes I have outbraked Cup cars to loud cries of "foul!" If you want a piece of history, a fast race car, or just a lot of fun to chuck around the track, this is THE car.
