1980-1981 PORSCHE 924 Carrera GT specifications

1980-1981 PORSCHE 924 Carrera GT specifications Classic and Performance Car

Based around prototype ideas for the forthcoming 944, which you can see in the distinctive bloated wheelarches, fabricated from flexible polyurethane. Porsche built 406 Carrera GTs to homologate the 924 for racing at Le Mans. Based on the 924 Turbo, engine output was boosted by another 40bhp thanks to an intercooler and internal modifications. The Carrera GT was sold only in red, silver or black, and just 75 right-hand-drive examples were built for the UK market. No surprise then that prices have been rising here in recent years as their rarity and abilities are recognised.
