1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GT

Porsche’s racing engineers developed both the road going homologation special and the racing car side by side. The 924 Carrera GT was based on the 924 Turbo, but was widened and lightened considerably. By boosting the Turbo-pressure and the compression, the blown four cylinder engine produced an impressive 210 bhp.

Production of the 400 examples required started in August of 1980 and despite the high price and the fact that it was available in black, red or silver, they sold like hot cakes. The 924 had always been praised for its great handling and with the additional power and wider track, it was a proper road racer.
