Porsche 924 Carrera GT

At a time when Porsche was still not concerned about profitability and sales records, a homolocation model was developed based on the successful 924 Turbo: the 924 Carrera GT.

Extensive adjustments were made compared to the base model 924 Turbo: Forged pistons, a modified intercooler, a larger turbocharger with 0.75 bar boost pressure and wear-resistant camshafts, 210 HP were generated in addition to other optimizations and an acceleration of 0-100 km / h in 6.9 seconds allowed. Among other things, modules from the 911 he series were used in the power transmission and also in the chassis. The brakes were taken over by the 911 3.3 Turbo.

The explosion comes at just under 4,500 tours. Suddenly the arms become long. The steering wheel wants to wriggle out of his hands, the back of the head sticks to the headrest and the pupils become wide, very wide. This is how a four-cylinder turbo feels when it does not roar behind the driver in the Porsche 718. If it is not from 2016, but from the 1980s. The highway is GT district: The seat with the black and red pinstripe fabric is felt only a few inches above the asphalt. He wags his way through the curves, barely dodging the rear and barely bending to the side. The deep built-in four-cylinder and the gearbox on the rear axle ensure a good weight distribution.

Details

Visually, the 924 Carrera GT with front fenders, as well as fender flares on the rear axle and the front bumper with front apron made of polyurethane (PU) with 20% glass fiber content both lighter and more resistant to rust and generally provide more stability. Thinner glazing further reduced weight and reduced buoyancy with the larger rear spoiler.

The Porsche Carrera 924 GT is a limited edition of 401 pieces, available in 1981 in three colors only: red, silver and black. About 200 of these were delivered to Germany to so-called special customers. This is the number 132 and one of the few black copies. This is probably the only vehicle that was so long - until 2018 - in first hand. His first owner has accompanied this vehicle on his business trips abroad until he had to give up the car for health reasons. The vehicle was purchased by a renowned collector in 2018. From this collection also comes the second available 924 Carrera GT in silver. He had the vision on this perfectly preserved base to put the first 924 Carrera GT mostly in a new condition, sometimes even better than new, to experience the pure and original driving feel of the factory condition. In a workshop specializing in Porsche Transaxle models in Southern Germany, a masterpiece of craftsmanship was meticulously developed: The vehicle was built from the ground up with original parts that were partly restored to new condition with the aim of restoring their original condition. Over 500 working hours and almost € 50,000 were spent on this. A newly developed exhaust system that withstands the thermal pressure compared to the original one was specially designed for this model. In particular, the complete axles, the suspension, the suspension, the brakes and the rims should shine in new condition. For this purpose, the engine and the transmission, and the clutch were overhauled and adjusted if necessary.

The result is a sensation: The vehicle drives like the first day and makes the real time jump back and lets forget that this is a model from the 80s.

In addition, over time, a complete documentation of this vehicle has been created, which will be handed over to the new owner in addition to the on-board folder and the complete set of keys.

Conclusion: This Porsche 924 GT is a moving piece of automotive history and a special opportunity in this state to acquire the 924 par excellence. In the classic and most sought after color combination ebony black, with only one previous owner, comprehensible history and documented restoration, as well as matching numbers this vehicle is equally suitable for a collector as a driver. If you're looking for a 924 Carrera GT without compromise, with many parts new or even better than the original ones, you've made the right choice to enjoy the car for the next 40 years.
