It was more than a facelift and there were significant powertrain upgrades. Some suspension improvements and refinements as well. It's an objectively better car in almost every measurable way. I just thought they looked ugly and never really cared for them.

As for the 968, seems like a odd engine choice big displacement 4 cylinder 3.0l 4 cylinder and 2l 6 cylinders

Yeah, the 968s look goofy af, a weird combo of 928 and 964 styling cues grafted onto the 944.

The 944 Turbo is where it’s at.

Yeah, something like that to be overly kind.
Now, how do you really feel?
