Footnotes

  • Volkswagen's decision not to proceed with their designed-by-Porsche 914 replacement led to the latter taking on the project themselves. Launched in November 1975, the resulting 924 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 unit. A five-speed Porsche-designed 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. A road model with competition potential, the luxuriously equipped Carrera GT was launched at the 1979 Frankfurt Show. Easily distinguishable from lesser 924s by virtue of its bonnet air intake and widened wheelarches, the Carrera GT was built in limited numbers - around 250 are thought to have been made - to gain homologation for rallying and Group 4 events. The standard version came with 210bhp, but this could be boosted to well over 300bhp for racing. Three cars were entered by the works in the 1980 Le Mans 24-Hour Race, finishing 6th, 12th and 13th. For 1981, in the February of which year the 100,000th 924 left the factory, two more limited edition derivatives of the Carrera GT were offered. Produced for that season only, these were the GTS and GTR, the former being a 245bhp lightweight variant, although still road legal to comply with homologation regulations, while the latter was an even more powerful competition car intended for racing and rallying.
    One of only 59 Porsche 924 Carrera GTS models built, this unrestored example remains in very good original condition and incorporates all the correct GTS features. Used on the road and for track days, this rare and exclusive Porsche model is presented in road-ready condition and offered with MoT to July 2009 and Swansea V5.
