1981 Porsche 924
For sale is my classic 1981 Porsche 924
This car is a great introduction for a first time Porsche owner. It's practical performance and affordable cost of ownership were the reasons I chose this 924 as my first Porsche.
A small warning, once you've owned a Porsche you will find it disappointing driving anything else.
A Porsche is all about the driving and this 924 is no exception it's handling and breaking are every bit as satisfying as a Porsche should be.
Great on the corners, direct feedback from the non power assisted steering, breaks that are better than most modern cars and reasonable take off.
What you don't get is the crushing cost of ownership, the complication and the inflated price tag of a similar vintage 944, 928 or 911.
This car has been regularly service and I have done many small repairs and parts replacement. With the aim of making this a reliable daily classic car.
Recent work include:
4 new Yokohama tyres
New fuel pump
Whilst not perfect this vehicle is original and complete.
This car has been a joy to drive and own. Being reliably used as a second car for weekend drives around the region and on the occasional commute into Melbourne.
The paint (Guards Red originally Brown) is in good condition with a few small stone chip, shopping centre scrapes and gutter bruising to the front spoiler. Whilst not in concourse condition and the front seats need some repairs this car is something special for an almost 30 year old vehicle.
The engine and and transmission are in great order for their age and have never let me down. Air conditioning not working.
Selling to upgrade. Will be sad to see it go, I really enjoy driving this car.
Don't miss this opportunity to make this car your first Porsche.
Ready to drive away.
Please contact me if you have any questions, would like additional photos or would like to arrange an inspection (highly recommended).

Turbocharged Porsche 924 acceleration
It's my budget fun project: 1981 Euro 924 which I turbocharged (IHI turbo, 951 Intercooler, EFI+VEMS v3.7 ECU). At 0.9 bars of Boost it makes 245 hp/320 Nm. Has 944 brakes and driving circles around 944's and 968's (on par with 951 S).
0-100 km/h is 5.8 s, top speed 257 kph (measuerd with RaceLogic Performance Box).
1989 Porsche 944 2.7 8v Car review (Full extended review)
This week DreamCarGarage1 go back to a time when big shoulders pads were in, mobile phones were the size of bricks and not all Porsches looked like 911's. But can a Porsche from the 80's really be worth buying or will it just be a load of rusty junk? Stay tuned as David takes a mint Porsche 944 for a ride across a beautiful slice of Shropshire countryside. Enjoy!
