For almost 30 years Porsche stuck to the rear-engined format and so it was a surprise in 1975 when the 924 was announced and it had a water-cooled, in-line engine at the front. It had a sporty 2+2 body. As is Porsche's way the car was developed and refined over the years with the addition of a turbo version in 1978, although this ceased in 1982.
In 1985 the 924 was replaced by the 924S using a de-tuned 2.5-litre 944 engine. This is a book of contemporary road and comparison tests, new model introductions, technical and specification data, development, racing, buying second hand, long-term tests.
Models covered include: Carrera GT, Le Mans, Lux, 5-speed, 924S, Supercharged, Automatic, Turbo.
Over 300 illustrations.
