Notes

The front and rear suspensions of the 968 CS are 20 mm lower than those of the 968 (shorter front-axle springs / modified spring brace adjustment at rear axle).

The 968 / 968 CS with M 030 special running gear is fitted with a front axle with height-adjustable spring struts. With the exception of the 968 U.S. version with M 030 equipment, the front and rear axles were also lowered by 20 mm over the standard 968.

The M 030 special running gear offers significantly tauter characteristics than the standard running

The 968 CS with M 030 special running gear is fitted with a limited slip differential with a locking ratio of 40% (normally supplied as M 220 special equipment).
