1986 Porsche 924S, 2,479cc. Registration number C232 DAH. Chassis number WPOZZZ92ZGN402901. Engine number unknown.
The Porsche 924 was put into production in 1975, it was the company’s first front engine, rear-wheel drive car, beating the 928 to market. A Bosch fuel injection system was standard giving 95bhp, the rear transaxle gearbox gave the car near perfect weight distribution for outstanding handling.
In 1984, Volkswagen decided to stop making the 2.0-litre engine blocks which left Porsche in somewhat of a dilemma. The 924 was considerably cheaper than the 944, so dropping the model would leave a void in the range. The decision was therefore made to fit a detuned version of the 944’s 163bhp 2.5-litre engine.
The suspension was upgraded, brakes beefed up and five lug wheels added, thus in 1986 the 924S was born, with power stated as being 148bhp.
The 924S had a short life as in 1989 Porsche dropped it from sale along with the base 944, deciding instead to concentrate on more upmarket cars.
DAH, with black leather and a sunroof, was first registered in June 1986 and last MOT'd in 2011 at 81,266. It was found during a house clearance in York and apart from three tax discs from 2004/05 there is no paperwork. Please note that the engine turns over but will not fire, it appears the aftermarket immobiliser may be the issue.
Sold with no paperwork, this 924 should be a relatively easy restoration project to get back on the road.
