1981 PORSCHE 924 Turbo
The Porsche 924 arrived in 1976. Designed by Dutch designer Haam Lagaay, a member of the Porsche design team, he envisioned the 2+2 coupe to be practical and agile.
Using a transaxle rear-wheel drive with a VW 2.0 litre engine, the power may have been quite low by Porsche standards but this was to become the perfect entry level Porsche at a time of need. The 924 was a huge success from the outset, and in the second year Porsche sold more than 25,000 units.
Once launched, the 924 was developed quickly. Next on the upgrade list was a five-speed gearbox, followed by a three-speed automatic option. It was in 1979 that things got more interesting with the release of the 924 Turbo.
Using a KKK turbocharger and a modified cylinder head mated to the revised 2.0 litre bottom end, the power was pushed to 170 bhp - getting close to the much more expensive 911 SC.
A car that was later developed further with the 924 Carrera GT, an homologation special car built in 250 units.
