1985-1988 PORSCHE 924S specifications

1985-1988 PORSCHE 924S specifications Classic and Performance Car

A master of subtlety, the 924S appeals to those who are fond of the ‘Q-car’ concept – there’s a lot more going on than the body leads you to believe. Aside from the Teledial wheels and extra ‘S’ on the badge at the rear, nothing gives the game away that this is virtually a 944 wearing the 924’s slimline bodyshell. However, it’s all there, from the new 2.5-litre overhead-cam engine to the four-wheel vented disc brakes. Engine power was raised from 150bhp to 160bhp for the 1988 model year, at the same time as Le Mans editions in black or white were offered with lowered, uprated suspension.
