Brief History of the Porsche 924 Models Production Figures
924
The 924 was imported into the US with a 2.0 liter engine until 1982. The production of the 2.0 engine, with the cast iron block, and aluminum alloy pan and head, continued till 1985, the last year the 924 was sold in Europe.

The 924 was originally equipped with a four-speed gear box, while a five-speed gearbox and an automatic option were available in later years. Some cars in the intervening years were produced with the 016Z Audi five-speed transmission, which had the inverted 'German' gear-shift pattern.

In 1986, the 2.5 liter aluminum block engine and drive train from the 944 were transplanted into the 924 body, and sold as the 924S. Except for visual similarity with the 924, such as the bodywork and the round side marker lights, this is a very different car when it comes to performance, maintenance and upkeep.


924 Turbo
Porsche upgraded the performance of its 924 with the introduction of a turbocharged model in 1979. While the lower end of the engine remained unchanged, many improvements were made to the upper end of the engine as well as the drivetrain. On the outside, the car gained alloy wheels, a distinctive NACA duct in its hood, and a rear spoiler. Horsepower increased from the aspiro's 125 bhp to 170 bhp in the turbo. This car's internal project number at Porsche was "931", and for that reason many owners refer to their car that as a 931.

924 Carrera GT
In 1980, Porsche homologated four hundred copies of the 924 Carrera. Power was increased to 210 hbp thanks in part to the addition of an intercooler. To get this power to the road, wheel dimensions were enhanced with 7J x 15" rims all around. The bodywork was tweaked as well, with wider flares over the wheel wells and extensive use of polyurethane panels instead of steel.

924 Carrera GTS
Fifty-five copies of the GTS were produced, of which some smaller number were Club Sport variants, destined for competition. The latter included an aluminum roll cage. Horsepower was again increased, this time to 245 bhp.

924S
Has the 944 drive train in 924 body, lighter, more aerodynamic and faster than a regular 944. The 88 models had a"sport" option available - these cars make excellent autocrossers and are worth more
