DT: 1979 Porsche 924

Up for auction is this 1979 Porsche 924 finished in Guard’s Red over a brown leather interior.  Equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission mated to a 2.0 L inline 4-cylinder engine, the 924 was introduced as Porsche’s original front-engine sports car.  This 1979 example is said to remain in excellent overall condition with a comprehensive full service and inspection performed in November of 2019.  Showing approximately 27k miles on the odometer, this well-maintained Porsche 924 is ready to begin its journey with a new owner.

Reported to have been fully repainted under previous ownership, the exterior finish is said to remain in fantastic condition while displaying minimal signs of wear.  Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery.  Distinctive features include pop-up headlights, a large glass rear hatch and factory 14” black finished wheels which are currently dressed in an older set of Michelin tires.

The brown interior is said to be in excellent condition with a protective cover placed over the dashboard that shows only one area of slight warping.  Factory features include power mirrors and a Blaupunkt radio.  The cabin is noted to be highly original with the only modification being an attractive gauge on the center console.  The seller confirms all gauges electrical components and accessories to be fully functional.

Power comes from a naturally aspirated 2.0 L inline 4-cylinder engine rated at approximately 125 HP.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a desirable dogleg G31 5-speed manual transmission putting ultimate control in the hands of the driver.  In November of 2019, the current owner had commissioned a full inspection followed by a comprehensive mechanical service at a cost of over $3k.  During this time the following maintenance items were performed.

  • Remove and Replace Engine Oil Pan Gasket

    @ninpo4me Look at my 924S-Special Edition on The deal tank. 146k miles extensive mtc history, 1 of 500 U.S. market, non sunroof rare, and 160hp etc, etc and mine was painted red by original owner and it had orange flame decals like a hot rod on the sides which the second owner removed when the elderly couple bought it, stupid move but hey, the car has never had body work. Some people just do weird things. Original interior 146k miles and the dash looks 99% new still which shows among other things how well it's been cared for. Make me an offer! ;)

    Can you please confirm if the AC and the heater works?
    The slide levers tend to get brittle with time.

    @ninpo4me @ninpo4me, color change. Interior is all original and excellent. Miles are original.

    Is there any information on why such a low milage example needed a repaint? These cars have 5 digit odometers. Is it possible that this car has over 100k miles?
