Footnotes

  • Volkswagen's decision not to proceed with their designed-by-Porsche 914 replacement led to the latter taking on the project themselves. The first-ever Porsche to use a front-mounted, water-cooled engine, the 924 arrived in November 1975 and drew heavily on Volkswagen/Audi components: the 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, overhead-camshaft engine being a development of the Audi 100's and the four-speed transaxle a VW-sourced unit. With 125bhp on tap, the sleekly styled 924 was good for a top speed of 125mph with 60mph coming up in 9.9 seconds. A Porsche-designed five-speed gearbox and improvements to the suspension were early developments, and in 1978 came the first truly high-performance 924 - the Turbo. The latter's extra 45bhp raised top speed to around 150mph and this figure would be further improved upon by the 924 Carrera GT. With a price 30% less than that of a 911, the 924 was an instant success and would become the best selling Porsche model of its day, extending the marque's appeal to a sector of the market that previously could not have afforded one.
    Representing a great deal of performance and style for relatively little money, this particular Porsche 924 has been used as a second car and has covered only 43,351 miles from new. Refinished in red with black/grey interior and described as in generally good condition, the vehicle is offered with MoT to May 2010 and Swansea V5.
