Description

The time is ripe for these outstanding sports cars from the 80s, which quite rightly bear the Porsche coat of arms - if, despite all our affinity for the 911, we step back a little and dampen our emotions a little in order to look at the facts with an objective, broad perspective, Porsche did everything right. The transaxle front engine era began with the 924 and 928 and brought the Porsche brand, particularly with the entry-level Porsche 924, to many average earners for whom the 911 was simply too expensive. Consequently, from the basic 924, alongside homologation models such as the 924 Carrera GT and various rally versions, the top version 924 turbo was created in the first and second series, with which one could put fear into the hearts of a 911 of the time. The 911 SC available at the time with an initial 180 hp was in practice not a bit faster than the 924 turbo. In all other disciplines, however, the smaller brother eagerly collected points and, objectively speaking, was the better car all around. Starting with the heating, through the foolproof chassis to the practical trunk, it overtook the already iconic 911 and became the first choice for those looking for “value for money”. With the 924 turbo, he got the rationally better sports car with all Porsche qualities such as a hot-dip galvanized body, long-term maintenance intervals, significantly lower operating and maintenance costs (in addition to the much cheaper purchase price) and finally more family-friendly all-round properties. Our 924 turbo on offer was ordered by its original owner from northern Italy and was then used in the same way that Porsches were primarily used in Italy - from the first day only for the great moments. A weekend on one of the northern Italian lakes, a vacation on the Ligurian coast, a trip to the Dolomites, and in between waiting in the sheltered garage for the next pleasure trip. You have to know that Italians generally have no problem driving to work in the city in a Fiat Panda or VW Polo all week long. In any weather and parked wherever there is space. Or to park until there is enough space... But this only happens in the rarest of cases with the Sunday car in the garage, which is only intended for special trips and just for enjoyment. No daily stop-and-go, without the usual everyday stress, not in winter, therefore without salt or other adversities that cause cars to age faster elsewhere, such as in Germany... so much for saving the honor of the Porsche, which will be available from then on were allowed to mature in wonderful Italy on the first day of approval. So our vehicle came to Bergamo and was only driven approximately 65,000 km by its owner - a professional musician and therefore practically always on tour without his Sunday Porsche. Until we took it over. We immediately did a full TÜV report, but didn't register the car and instead waited until today. As a result, he was spared from German high-speed motorway stages throughout his life in the Federal Republic of Germany. It is now a rare Porsche of the second turbo generation. Finding good examples is now like looking for a well-quoted needle in a haystack. One topic now deserves special attention - the structure and body. Most users of national origin took advantage of the carte blanche of a galvanized body to drive their Porsche 924 carefree through all seasons. The manufacturer's 10-year guarantee against rust perforation further reassured the owners and strengthened Porsche's reputation for offering long-term quality. Now not only 10, but in some cases well over 40 years have passed and we are in the year 2023. And so the realization is strengthened that even “long-term” cars were not developed and built to last forever. An expert look at the sensitive areas of these vehicles shows us the sad reality today and quickly destroys the dream of eternal youth, especially with these models... Connoisseurs of transaxle models know what we are talking about. We are all the more pleased to be able to offer you a still brilliant, rust-free 924 turbo SII in one of the sportiest color combinations that suits a Porsche like no other. It is probably thanks to its origins that the body is still in very good condition today, no comparison to a model with a “typical” German delivery. Anyone who has already dealt with these models in more detail usually knows what the 924 is like. The car's technology also has no abnormalities.
