EXTERIOR
Finished in Ocean blue metallic, this Turbo looks sensational.

The paint work is exceptional . Ownership has clearly been fastidious and it appears the car dry stored throughout its life with an impeccable undercarriage, and a near new factory quality finish across lights, glass, rubbers and plastics.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
All of the alloys are in excellent condition and are shod in a matching set of Michelin Pilot Sport tyres, which have plenty of tread remaining. The red Porsche calipers are immaculate, and the discs and pads only show minimal wear.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new in October 1996 this very high spec LHD Turbo has been very well maintained.

The 993 Turbo coupé was introduced in 1995. It featured a new twin turbocharged  engine displacing 3.6 liters and generating a maximum power output of 408 PS (300 kW; 402 hp). Air-to-air intercoolers, electronic engine management, redesigned cylinder heads and other modified engine internals completed the new engine. The 993 Turbo was the first 911 Turbo with all wheels drive, taken from the 959 flagship model. The electronic engine management helped the Turbo to achieve fuel efficiency far superior to its predecessors. In connection with two catalytic converters and an on-board-diagnostics-system including four oxygen-sensors, the 993 Turbo was the cleanest sports car of its time. The Turbo’s bodywork differs from the Carrera by widened rear wheel arches (approximately 6 cm), redesigned front and rear bumper moldings, and a fixed “whale tail” rear wing housing the intercoolers. New 18 in (460 mm) alloy wheels with hollow spokes were standard.

The factory X50 pack increased the performance of the engine to 450bhp.

The 993 Turbo was one of the first production cars in the world to have OBDII disagnostics system. (the 3.8-litre and GT versions didn’t have that system, and the normally aspirated 993 variants didn’t get it until 1996 model year). The successors of the 993 Turbo since have had water-cooled heads. The car also had brakes that were larger than those on the base Carrera model.

PORSCHE 924 CARRERA GT HOMOLOGATION SPECIAL

Porsche 924 Carrera GT Homologation special

1980 Porsche 924 Carrera GT – not for sale, but here to bring to your attention. This is 1 of only 406 cars produced between 1980 and 1981 for homologation. There were only 75 right hand drive cars built within the 406 total and of the 406 made, there were 100 race cars so by any standard, these were rare cars.

Right now, these cars represent extraordinary value for money, so now is the time to buy, because the Porsche 924 Carrera GT is a tremendous car with huge capability and proper race history. They are fast even by today’s standards with 210bhp, a 150mph top speed and 6.5 secs 0-60 mph so no slouch. Dare I say it, but they handle better than a 911 and there’s room in the back for two small people. If you show up at a motorsport meeting in one of these, it is instant respect.

Just watch the following link and listen to what Derek Bell has to say about the car. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRcUHsccXhY

If you want one of these cars, jump in to the driving seat now, select the dog leg first, press the loud pedal and enjoy..

After a successful sales run of both naturally aspirated and turbo models in 1980, Porsche unexpectedly released the Porsche 924 Carrera GT, making clear their intention to enter the 924 in competition. By adding an intercooler, increasing compression to 8.5:1 as well as various other little changes, Porsche was able to develop the 924 Turbo into the race car they had wanted, dubbing it the ” Porsche 924 Carrera GT”.

Visually it differed to the 931 in that it had polyurethane plastic front and rear flared guards, a polyurethane plastic front spoiler, a top mounted air scoop for the intercooler, a much larger rubber rear spoiler and a flush mounted front windscreen. It lost the 931’s NACA duct in the hood but retained the air intakes in the badge panel. This more aggressive styling was later used as motivation for the 944.

In order to comply with the homologation regulations, the 924 Carrera GT and later 924 Carrera GTS were offered as road cars as well, producing 210 and 245 hp (157 and 183 kW) respectively. Clubsport versions of the GTS were also available with 280 hp (209 kW; 284 PS), and factory included Matter rollcage and race seats. 924 Carrera GT variations were known by model numbers 937 (left hand drive) and 938 (right hand drive).

The ultimate development of the 924 in its race trim was the 924 Carrera GTR race car, which produced 375 horsepower (280 kW; 380 PS) from a highly modified version of the 2.0 L I4 used in all 924s. In 1980 Porsche entered three 924 GTRs at the 24hrs of Le Mans, which went on to finish 6th, 12th and 13th overall. Also building a 924GTR rally race car, and two other GTRs (Miller and BF Goodrich).
