Porsche 924

Coupé, 1976

Highlights

  • 1st series
  • 2nd hand
  • Only 81t km history

Even before the production of the VW-Porsche had ended, the Swabians received the development order for an independent VW sports car. But things turned out differently and Volkswagen stopped the project. Instead, Porsche developed the car independently until it was ready for series production. The new one was called 924 and with it the Porsche company entered new territory, because for the first time a Porsche had a front engine. In order to compensate for the unfavorable weight distribution, the 2+2 seater with the large tailgate was fitted with a transaxle manual transmission – i.e. a switch box on the rear axle. Ultimately, the 924 remained in the range from 1976 to 1985, laying the foundation for the transaxle model era at Porsche.

The vehicle in detail

The Porsche to be purchased in this auction is a 924 from 1976, i.e. a very early example. This transaxle athlete was first registered in May 1976 with the chassis number 9246103406. According to the seller, the Porsche is a re-import from Italy. A partial history confirms the history of this 924, the car has 2 owners in total. 2 vehicle keys are still available, an H-approval is not yet available, but the most recently completed TÜV is valid until June 2024. In addition to an appraisal, the matching numbers given are also worth mentioning.

The silhouette of the Porsche 924 is unmistakable: low front with pop-up headlights and high rear with glass dome. This transaxle sports car was completely repainted in the color red in 2017 in the Netherlands – due to this painting work, which was not too long ago, the body of this Porsche is in a rust-free condition. In addition, no major defects can be found on the exterior that could cloud the good overall external condition of the 924. Furthermore, there are no modifications to be noted that deviate from the original condition on the exterior. Neither the front bumper nor the rear bumper show signs of parking bumps or other damage, and the current owner rules out an accident during his tenure.

In terms of rims, this 924 has its original aluminum rims – mounted on these are tires in very good condition, which according to the current owner have only been mounted for 3,000 kilometers. The brakes can be found in TÜV-compliant condition, and there are no deviations from the original condition in the area of the chassis.

The partial leather seats of this Porsche 924, which have a pattern that matches the paint color well, are contemporary. 2 cracks can be discovered on the leather side bolsters of the driver's seat, otherwise the partial leather seats are in good condition. A few cracks can be seen on the dashboard and the 2-spoke leather steering wheel shows some signs of wear, as does the gear knob. The equipment of this Porsche 924 is a bit sparse and the only feature is the contemporary Philips cassette radio, but everything you need to drive is available in this 924. In addition, all instruments, displays, switches and controls in the interior function perfectly.

3 deep-set round instruments adorn the driver's cockpit: The 5-digit speedometer of this transaxle athlete shows a mileage of approx. 81,000 kilometers. Based on various available documents, this mileage seems credible.

The water-cooled in-line four-cylinder engine in this 924 delivers 120 hp, and the gears can be engaged without any problems via a 4-speed manual gearbox flanged to the rear axle. In June 2022, this Porsche underwent a last service, according to the seller, defects in the drive train cannot be listed.

In view of the age of the vehicle, which is now 46 years, the underbody of this 924 impresses with its extremely well-preserved condition. A Porsche 924 combines mass production technology with long-term quality, its appearance with the pop-up headlights simply creates sympathy. If you would like to secure an early copy from the early days of the 924 model – and in a cult color combination at that – this copy is recommended, because it completely revives the zeitgeist of the pure 1970s.
