1982 Porsche 924 Turbo

Back in 2020 I looked at a late ’80 924 from the end of Series 1 production.

1980 Porsche 924 Turbo

A nice example, it had a rolled odometer but was in nice shape overall and had an asking price of just under $12k. That probably seems like a lot for a 924, and indeed – it is; you can get later and arguably better (in some ways) 944 models for the same price. But put it up against some of its contemporaries in the same price category; the Scirocco, the GTI, the BMW 320i, and the late Mercedes-Benz C107 models, and to me the 931 compares pretty favorably. If you’re looking for a fun package for not a ton of money, they seem like a worthy option. Today I found a late Series 2 car in a rare shade, so let’s take a look:

When the Turbo 924s came out, and Road & Track magazine said, ‘At last, here’s a 924 that deserves to be called a Porsche,’ he explains. The Turbos were much better accepted than the normally aspirated regular 924 cars. It’s very practical, mechanically simple to service & maintain, it has to be said, wears the right badge emblem. While still in the shadow of the cars that followed (the 944 and 968) good 924s are now increasing in value, so if you want an affordable Porsche but don’t fancy a Boxster, now could be the time to buy collect them.

Okay, before we get to the elephant in the room, let’s consider what we’re looking at. I believe the color is Gambia Red, which was a one-year-only color on the 924 (though also available on early 944s). It has the standard options; most had the removable roof and this one also has a period Blaupunkt stereo. The rest of the bits were standard on late 931s; air conditioning, four-wheel discs, performance suspension, etc; all came with the fairly high $23,000 asking price; that would get you two GTis in 1983 with money to spare when new. Condition is pretty good but not outstanding, and no real history is disclosed – just a lot of dealer mumbo-jumbo. So is the rare color worth a bit over double the price of the last one? Well, you saw where this was going a while ago. There’s just no way to justify the $25,000 asking price to me, and I really love the 924. At half that amount it would still be a hard argument, but $25k gets you into a very nice 951 today.

    Great color…but really. I can think of noone who would not first buy a 951 for that money…and 67K miles is not particularly low either.

    Some delicious word salad in this listing for sure!
