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).

The Porsche 964 is the company’s internal name for the Porsche 911 manufactured and sold between 1989 and 1994. Designed by Benjamin Dimson through January 1986, it featured significant styling revisions over previous 911 models, most prominently the more integrated bumpers. It was the first generation 911 to be offered with Porsche’s optional Tiptronic automatic transmission and four wheel drive as options.

The 964 was considered to be 85% new as compared to its predecessor, the Carrera 3.2. The first 964s available in 1989 were four wheel drive equipped “Carrera 4” models; Porsche added the rear wheel drive Carrera 2 variant to the range in 1990. Both variants were available as a coupe, targa or cabriolet. The 964 Carrera was the last generation sold with the traditional removable Targa roof. A new naturally aspirated engine called the M64 was used for 964 models, with a flat six displacement of 3.6 litres. Porsche substantially revised the suspension, replacing torsion bars with coil springs and shock absorbers. Power steering and ABS brakes were added to the 911 for the first time; both were standard. The exterior bumpers and fog lamps became flush with the car for better aerodynamics. A new electric rear spoiler raised at speeds above 50 mph (80 km/h) and lowered down flush with the rear engine lid at lower speeds or at rest. A revised interior featured standard dual airbags beginning in 1990. A new automatic climate control system provided improved heating and cooling. Revised instrumentation housed a large set of warning lights that were tied into the car’s central warning system, alerting the driver to a possible problem or malfunction.
