Up for auction is an exceptional 34K-mile (55K kilometer) 1988 Porsche 924 S. Not often do you come across such a well-preserved piece of Porsche history. This example was originally purchased from Norden Autohaus in Edmonton, Alberta before being sold to a family friend in 2002. From then on, the car is said to have been sparingly driven and well-kept which led the current owner to purchase it just this year. Having not been registered by the current owner, this shows as a 2-owner vehicle and is currently being offered in exceptional condition with just 34k miles showing on the odometer.
The Guards Red paint is stated to be in exceptional condition. With only minor signs of road going wear including a few rock chips on the original front windshield and a small scratch above the front bumper valance, it is clear that this was an incredibly well-cared for vehicle. The seller states that the front passenger fender has been professionally resprayed due to a few scratches that occurred while the car was in storage. A few key features of this 924 include a factory rear window wiper, tinted top windscreen, detachable roof panel, and power assisted steering.
Inside, you will find an extremely well-preserved black interior that features a factory 363mm 4-spoke steering wheel along with partial leather front seats and an original Blaupunkt head unit. This 924 boasts a crack-free dashboard along with fully functioning electronics. This 924 is truly a rolling time capsule.
The 1988 924 S shares the same suspension, engine and braking system as the 1988 Porsche 944. The 2.5L engine is capable of producing 156HP and is connected to a 5-speed manual rear-mounted transaxle that is said to shift with ease. Service records dating back to new will be provided with the sale showing that the vehicle was well-maintained throughout its life.
