Up for auction at no-reserve is this 1978 Porsche 924 finished in Malaga Red over a tan leatherette interior. Representing Porsche’s original water-cooled transaxle sports car, this 924 was delivered new on March 9th, 1978 from Gardner Motors Porsche/Audi in Bernardsville New Jersey. It would remain under the care of its original owner up until 1999 before being acquired by the second owner who kept the car up until 2019 when it was purchased by the seller. It is now being offered for auction without reserve by the seller in New York accompanied by the original owner’s manuals, warranty book, and a collection of service records.
This 924 is presented in its original color of Malaga Red (L30C), and the car is suspected to have been previously refinished. Some cosmetic flaws and imperfections are depicted in the photo gallery. This example rides on factory 14” Tarantula wheels with an additional full-size spare located in the trunk.
Inside, this 924 is appointed with a tan leatherette interior featuring a brown dashboard and upper door panels. The cabin shows to have been well preserved aside from a tear in the passenger seat upholstery. A protective cover has been applied over the dashboard and the original 8-track radio remains in place. At a reading of approximately 34k-miles in September of 2007, the 5-digit odometer was replaced with a used unit. The current odometer reading is approximately 21k-miles and the true mileage on the car is reported to be closer to 38k-miles. The A/C system is present but is currently inoperable as the compressor clutch will not engage.
This 924 is equipped with a VW/Audi-sourced 2.0L inline-four engine that sends approximately 110 HP to the rear wheels through a 4-speed manual transaxle. A collection of service records will be included detailing a history of routine maintenance throughout the years.
This sale will include the original owner’s manuals, warranty book, an assortment of service records, and a clean title. At no reserve, this 924 offers a perfect opportunity for any enthusiast looking to get behind the wheel of a vintage transaxle Porsche.
