Description

The 1976 Porsche 924 was a complete departure by the company, in that it featured a front mounted water cooled engine. The 1984cc engine was essentially an Audi unit which Porsche then tweaked to 125bhp. The power went to a rear mounted gearbox/transaxle, the advantage of this layout was that it gave the car near perfect weight balance which naturally improved the handling.  The 924 was clothed in a pretty two plus two body shell which featured a large glass hatchback giving access to a relatively large rear boot making this a very practical sports car. The 2-litre engine, which powered the earlier models, developed 125bhp and the maximum speed was in excess of 125mph. Things were to improve with the arrival of the 924S which was fitted with a 2.5-litre engine with 163bhp available. With its sure-footed handling, the car was to prove a great success and nowadays is a popular choice as a potential future classic.

This particular 924S was supplied new on 1st May 1987 by Dingle Garages, Colwyn Bay, Wales. The Porsche Certificate of Authenticity shows the car was finished in Alpine White with an interior of black leatherette & black cloth inlays and had optional equipment such as a sports steering wheel, rear wiper, sunroof, electric windows and power steering.

Accompanying the car is a well-documented maintenance history with the first 7 stamps in the service book from the supplying dealer in Wales and thereafter from marque specialists, Road Range of Liverpool. The last major service was carried out in July '15 by OCD Porsche of Wallasey at a cost of £1,178. The car itself is in superb condition, with sporty red brake callipers, great paintwork and presentable wheels containing their original Porsche wheel centres. The toolkit is present, as is the book pack containing all the manual / service records and even the original stereo puller!

This two-owner car is now showing 94,867 miles on the odometer and is supplied with a UK V5c and an MoT until November '16. This car offers the next owner affordable Porsche ownership at its best, and we strongly recommend viewing this great little 924S!
