Description

The Porsche 924 Carrera GT is a rare homologation special that was conceived for the FISA Group 4 competition requirements. Revising the engine from the Turbo, the 924 Carrera GT boasts an impressive 210bhp and incorporates a heavily upgraded suspension, lightened body panels and upgraded brakes.

Our 924 Carrera GT is just 1 of only 75 right-hand examples ever produced and believed to be one of the lowest mileage cars in existence. Supplied new via official Porsche dealer, Ian Anthony Sales (Knutsford) Ltd on the 8th August 1981, this car was commissioned with an extensive list of factory options that include; sunroof, sports steering wheel, electric windows, electric driver’s door mirror, heated & adjustable passenger door mirror, Panasonic stereo, electric aerial, Fuchs forged alloy wheels (911 type), sports shock absorbers, rear window wiper and headlamp washers.

The car was acquired by a previous long term owner, a prominent Porsche collector on the 31st August 1993 via AFN Ltd, London with just 1,500 miles on the clock. He used the car sparingly over his 28 year ownership, which was evident from its low mileage of 3,279 miles when he sold the car to us earlier this year.

It has been recently recommissioned with works that that included; new brake discs, callipers and brake hoses, new Pirelli P7 N4 tyres, new Bilstein rear shock absorbers, the rear silencer replaced, the fuel tank was removed and cleaned, Bosch accumulator valve & fuel level sensor replaced, timing belt, pulley and wiper blades replaced plus the oil, air and fuel filters. All of the parts removed during the recommissioning still accompany the car, and in addition a fresh health check was completed in April 2021.

The car still retains its original Porsche handbook pouch, service/warranty supplement, driver’s manual, service centre handbook, original spare keys, Meta Trak security system and a well-documented history file.

A very special example of a car that is recognised as “the ultimate 924”.
