Launched in 1976, the Porsche 924 received a rather lukewarm welcome from the motoring press. Known to have begun life as an Audi / VAG project, the front-engined, water-cooled newcomer was criticised for not being a 'proper' Porsche (much like the 912 and 914 before it). Although few could fault its balanced handling, many considered the coupe to be under-powered. No stranger to forced induction, the Stuttgart manufacturer responded by harnessing the exhaust gases from the 924's 1984cc four-cylinder engine. Introduced in 1978, the resultant 924 Turbo developed a quoted 170bhp and 181lbft of torque (177bhp and 184lbft from 1980). Reputedly capable of 144mph and 0-60mph in 6.9 seconds, its performance was on a par with that of the contemporary Ferrari 308. Suitably upgraded with stiffer suspension (coil-sprung front / torsion-bar rear), four-wheel disc brakes, and stronger five-speed transmission, the new model married power with precision. The 924 Turbo remained in production for five years by which time some 12,385 are thought to have been made.

This particular example was first registered in August 1982. Originally Black, the car was repainted in the tasteful Brown it now wears in November 1987 and benefits from a desirable manual transmission. The interior boasts a matching brown vinyl finish with Pasha pattern velour seat centres and door card inserts and maintains a largely period-correct specification. Featuring a Clarion radio cassette player, electric windows, and door mirrors, exterior elements consist of a 'Turbo' front panel and bonnet, quad air intakes at the front, a NACA duct on the near-side of the bonnet, correct 15-inch aluminium alloy wheels and a ‘Targa style’ removable roof panel.

Having been off the road since 2014, ‘the car was purchased by its current owner in June of 2022 and subsequently recommissioned. Now displaying 9,549 miles (presumed 109,549), this presents an opportunity to acquire a well-respected classic, now MOT and tax-exempt. The current V5C document displays 8 former keepers.
