1987 Porsche 924S

After 1988, the Porsche 924 disappeared from the lineup altogether, leaving Porsche with a decidedly more upscale lineup until the arrival of the Boxster in 1998. Before the 924 exited stage right, the 924 evolved into the 924S for the 1986 through 1988 model years. With a detuned version of the Porsche 944’s 2.5 liter engine and upgraded suspension, Porsche was able to keep the price under $20,000 at the outset. Now, with news of Porsche developing a series of flat-4 engines, is another affordable Porsche soon to be in our midst? Until then, someone can sit back and enjoy this extremely well preserved, low mileage 924S for sale in Florida.

This is an all original 1987 Porsche 924S, non-sunroof car in a beautiful color combination. This is the first year, of a 2 year run that Porsche brought the 924 back to the states as an “S.” It has the larger 2.5 liter engine, with the light 924 body and 50/50 weight distribution. It has a 5-speed manual transmission and original Blaupunkt stereo.This car has been loved and cared for it’s entire life by one owner since new. Every major and minor service has been performed. Everything in this car works, including the air conditioning. It wears the original metallic silver paint and has never been in a collision. It is a true example ………you would think it was 1987 all over again. If you have any questions, please call 813-376-9264.

Thanks,

A clean 924S such as this presents a bit of a dilemma, as 944 and even later 968 models still change hands for reasonable sums. So if the seller is a bit too optimistic on the reserve, it might have a tough time as some buyers may opt for the more powerful stablemates for not much more cash. Then again, the 924 certainly has a following and if pictures do not lie, this appears to be one of the best you could find at the moment. Around $10,000 is about the upper range for excellent examples of the 924S. In this case, I’d suspect this car to pull somewhere in the $7,000 to $8,000 range.

  1. Same combination as my father’s car; these have remained unbelievably flat in the market for the past two decades. You’re right, unfortunately as good of a car as the 924S is, you can get into a bit rougher Turbo, higher mile 944S2 or even a budget 968 for not much more than the asking price of this car – and all of them are a bit more fun. I’ll continue to keep an eye out for another 88 SE though, they’re pretty cool – lighter and have the higher compression motor!
