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:
While Porsche might be the king of à la carte optioning, in the early 2000s they offered a series of packages lumping some desirable extras together. The two most commonly seen are the Technic and Comfort packages, which added things like Bose audio, power-adjustable seats, and xenon lights. But one that is rarely seen is the GT package. Basically, this gave you a turned down GT3; you got M030 suspension, Aerokit, and stainless-steel exhaust tips for a visual approximation of the higher-spec car. Today’s example takes that one step further with also GT3-specification 18″ Sport Design wheels and sport seats. It also has only 34,000 miles and yeah, the IMS was replaced. What’s left to complain about?
