After much success with the 911 Turbo, Porsche launched the 924 turbocharged version in 1978, often identified by its internal design code 931. The engine is powered by a KKK (non-intercooled) turbo, its head is modified as are many other details of the engine to ensure power and reliability. The result is 170bhp giving a top speed of around 225 kmh and 0-100 kmh in just over 7 seconds. Externally, the Turbo model immediately stands out with the NACA duct on the front bonnet.
In 1981, the 924 Turbo was revised, the KKK turbo was replaced with a larger one, able to better withstand the stresses and generally requiring less maintenance. Electronic ignition is adopted, which together with an increase in the compression ratio of 7.5: 1 to 8.5: 1 brings the power to 177bhp.
The 924 Turbo you see here has been with just one owner for many years and kept in dry storage. The Porsche has benefited from much recommissioning work in recent times, with a number of bills to support the works completed. With straight bodywork and room for cosmetic attention to the interior, this is a well estimated car which we are sure will be a rewarding driver to further improve.
