Description

The Porsche 924 was a sports car produced by Audi in Neckarsulm on behalf of Porsche AG of Germany from 1976 to 1988. The 924 was intended to replace the Porsche 914 as the company’s entry-level model.

Although the water-cooled, front-engined 928 gran turismo was designed first, the 924 was the first road-going Porsche to have a front engine rear wheel drive configuration.
The 924 made its public debut in November 1975. It was loved by enthusiasts for its performance and sales success with just over 150,000 produced during a 1976–1988 production run, and an important profits generator for the company.

This 1983 Porsche 924 was first registered in April 1983. It was delivered in Zermattsilber metallic LY7Y with electrical Side Mirrors M398 and Leather Sports Steering Wheel M431, Casetteholder on the middle Console M423.

The current owner had the car seasonally registered from April to October and it was always parked in the underground garage. He is the 6th owner.
The previous owner had it as a third car in the heated garage, that’s where I picked it up and who in turn had it from a collector from northern Germany.
I had all repairs done by Spurwechsel and the car passed the TÜV test in May without a blemish. Valid until 05.2023

I’ve been living in Berlin for almost 20 years, I’ve never owned a car in my life, but I’ve always loved to drive, but there was never a need to own a car.
I still remember the 924 very well from the 80s and a few years ago there was a golden 924 in the neighbourhood and I realised again how much I love this car. There was still no logical reason to buy a car, but I got more and more involved with the idea. 2,5 years ago I asked a friend (who is a specialist in oldtimer) if he could help me to get a 924 in good condition and then everything went very fast.
I’m not superstitious, but everything about the car just fell into place. The previous owner lived a few towns away from my parents-in-law, built in 1983 (just like me) and the day of the first registration is my brother’s birthday. My wife also fell in love with the car immediately and we have enjoyed taking various trips in the most amazing car in the world over the last 3 summers.
It is with a heavy heart that we are now parting with the car, as unfortunately we no longer have the time to use it properly since the birth of our little daughter and the car is far too beautiful to be left to rot in the garage.
When my daughter is out of the woods, I will definitely come back to the 924 owners’ club. I love this car.
Mileage according to the speedometer 69,151km. According to the workshop and the wear marks, they assume that it has a maximum of 169,000 km on the clock. The owner had the shock absorbers completely redone at the beginning and then had small things repaired.

The car is in very well kept original condition. It seems to be mostly in its original paint.
The Paintthikness is mostly between 180-250 μm and no signs of an accident are found. It probably had some repaint on the left rear as here the paint is 200-300 μm and you see some minor paint on the rubber of the quarter window.
This Porsche 924 is a perfect entry level Classic with prices on the rise. It has a daily driver condition which makes it a perfect city car to be enjoyed for grocery shopping during the week and driving on country roads on the weekend.
