This is a first-year production model Porsche 924 in an attractive exterior color and with a manual gearbox.
History of the 1977-1988 Porsche 924
Porsche in the 1970s was a company that thought it had its direction figured out. The air-cooled cars (911 and 914) were to be phased out and replaced with two new water-cooled designs: the Porsche 924 and 928. American-born CEO Peter Schutz was eventually to throw this plan out the window when he extended the life of the 911 indefinitely. But for a brief period of time, the 924 and 928 looked like the future at Porsche.
Developed originally as a Volkswagen by Porsche (which was VW’s de facto research and development department at the time), VW got cold feet about a sports car that would not share a platform with any other VW product so it sold the design back to Porsche who produced it at Audi’s Neckarsulm plant. It was a fundamentally sound bit of engineering, front-engine and rear-wheel drive with a rear-mounted transaxle connected to the engine by a rigid torque tube in lieu of a conventional driveshaft. Weight distribution was 48/52. The 924 was clean and attractive with a useful glass hatch continuing the fastback roofline.
Today, the 924 (particularly those in bright colors like this one) can occasionally be more desirable than the more complex and maintenance-intensive 911 and 944. With fully galvanized bodies, the 924 can be a durable, simple fun first Porsche. The remaining few good ones are worth seeking out.
