Philip Raby Porsche Porsche Sales and Service This 1986 Porsche 924S has an astonishing history. It has been in the same ownership for the majority of its life. It was originally the gentleman’s company car and he liked it so much, he bought it and cherished it. The fastidious owner kept every document relating to the car’s servicing; each time it went into the workshop, he wrote a polite letter, outlining the work required, and copies of these have been kept. There’s even a record of a parking ticket! Last year, the Porsche was recommissioned, with a major service including new cam belts and tensioners, water pump, spark plugs and more. We have just serviced it again, changed the power-steering pipes and reservoir and fitted four brand-new Toyo Proxes tyres, so it really is in excellent condition for its new owner. The 924’s Guards Red paintwork is in excellent condition and the car has the correct ‘telephone dial’ wheels. The interior is finished in black ‘Porsche’ pinstripe fabric and is also in good condition, apart from the inevitable small cracks to the dashboard top. The 924S is the last and best of the 924 range, with the same 2.5-litre engine as the 944, but in a lighter b
Variant name:S ,Variant: S 924s Le Mans Special Edition (1988) Technical Data Engine Capacity 2,500cc Transmission 4 Speed Manual Weight 1,080kg Exterior Colour White Interior Colour Grey/Gold Pinstripe The Porsche 924s is a luxury sports car which was produced in Germany. This car came off the production line on the 1st January 1987 and was first registered in 1988. It is one of only 74 cars made for the UK market. The 924s Le Mans was a limited series to celebrate Porsches 12th victory at the Le Mans 24 hour race. This car looked very good cosmetically for its age however after further examination we found that the underside of the car was badly corroded. After extensive repairs including welding new inner and outer sills we stripped the car to the bone and it was fully resprayed. While this work was being done we refurbished all the original components that we could and we replaced any parts that were beyond repair. This car has had 2 previous owners and boasts an impressive 125BHP, our car also has 4 cylinders with 8 valves per cylinder, as well as a 4 speed manual gear box with white exterior with a lovely grey/gold pinstripe interior. Porsche only produced 980 cars and they came between the months of July and September 1987. The cars either came with a black or white exterior however they all had the distinctive ‘Le Mans’ lower door sticker. The interior of the cars only came in black or grey with Ochre or Turquoise. All the cars were given a 15” ‘telephone style’ wheels which were available in either White with Ochre inserts or Black with Turquoise inserts. The cars we 10mm wider at the front and 15mm wider at the back compared to the standard cars. The special edition cars were given a bigger diameter anti-roll bars and gas shock absorbers to enhance cornering stability. Only 74 cars were made for the UK, 37 of each colour. We have done all that is possible to keep as many original parts as we could, to preserve the cars authenticity. Any parts that have been replaced have been meticulously prepared and the car is as it would have been when it rolled off the production line in 1987. We are proud to be able to say that all the work carried out on the car has been done within our business, and this car is a pure testament to the capabilities of our staff. We are sure that the next owner of this fantastic example will be delighted with their purchase.

The theme for the competition was “40 Years at The Front” which in 2016 coincided with the 40th Anniversary Celebrations since the launch of the first “transaxle” Porsche; the 924. At Porsche we are lucky enough to possess a brand and model history that is the envy of most other manufacturers. With a history spanning over 65 years we have sold over 130,500 vehicles in the UK market alone. 75% of all these vehicles remain on the road to this day and they are celebrated and cherished now more than ever. Furthermore, Porsche Classic models make up over half the vehicle parc in the UK, so our journey began with our vehicle of choice; a 1982 Porsche 924 finished in Glacier Blue having covered 78,200 miles. The entire vehicle was stripped for a full body paint, both wings replaced and the paint was removed back to the metal, this was then resurfaced and resealed before a full respray. At our Centre we carried out a complete strip and rebuild of the engine with the entire engine being cleaned and vapour blasted. This car also benefits from a lovely service history. To finish our restoration a new Porsche Classic Navigation was fitted, new tyres, service and MOT.
