Modified 1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GT For Sale

Here are a couple of photos of a 1981 Porsche 924 Carrera GT with some modifications, including a GTR body kit.

With a total production run of just 406 cars, the 924 Carrera GT is an extremely rare beast and thanks to the rather agricultural roots of the basic 924, is amongst the lesser-loved vehicles to emerge from the famous Stuttgart firm.

That lack of love is far from deserved. Despite the pedestrian VA/Audi underpinnings, the basic Carrera GT produces 210bhp from its turbocharged four-cylinder motor and comes with balanced handling that soon grows on its drivers.

Just 406 Carrera GTs were produced as part of a program designed to homologate the model for competition. This particular car is LHD, meaning it carries the 937 model code. You are unlikely to ever see a Carrera GT on the road, much less parked at the kerb.

You could, however, own this particular, thanks to it being on sale as a project car. We have no idea how much work will be needed to get the car back on the road and running reliably but at less than £15,000, it could offer relatively cheap entry into the rarified world of limited-run Porsches with competition pedigrees.
