1979-1983 PORSCHE 924 Turbo specifications

1979-1983 PORSCHE 924 Turbo specifications Classic and Performance Car

With Porsche at the forefront of turbo technology, and the 924 chassis ripe for exploitation with more power, this car’s development was inevitable. Thanks to a 45bhp power boost that raised top speed by nearly 20mph, a five-speed gearbox and uprated suspension, the 924 Turbo was very well received and over 12,000 were sold over a five-year period. Easily identified by the row of four extra air intakes in the nose panel and NACA duct in the bonnet, they also got five- rather than four-bolt wheels and were the first 924s to use the discreet but effective rear lip spoiler.
