Love it. The 924 GT was a GREAT looking race car in my book. Source: http://www.porsche.com/uk/accessoriesandservice/classic/924-gtp-restoration/ In 1980 Porsche entered Le Mans with three examples of the new race car which were piloted by teams from Germany, USA and Great Britain. Titled the 924 GTP, each car raced under their national colours in the highly competitive 'Prototype' class. 924 GTP 002 remains the only Porsche factory owned race car ever to compete under a British flag. Having been used for further testing the car was officially retired in 1982. 35 since its launch and to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Porsche 924, Porsche Cars Great Britain and our network of Classic Partner Centres will return the car to its former glory. Porsche Centre Glasgow will handle the suspension and brakes, Porsche Centre Swindon will restore the engine, Hatfield the gearbox and finally all plumbing and electrics will be the job of Porsche Centre Leeds. Full restoration of the body work and trim will be the responsibility of Road & Race Restorations, one of the Porsche Recommended Body Repairers with extensive experience in the restoration of specialist race cars. All the latest updates on the restoration process can be found below and in the gallery. 1980 924 GTP 002Bodywork: Lightened production body with fender extensions and front spoiler as well as doors and engine lid of plastic, plexiglass windows Chassis: Independent wheel suspensions, whisbones and McPherson shock legs in front, steel semi-trailing arms in back Progressive coil springs, Bilstein gas pressure shock absorbers Brakes: Inner-vented, dual circuit disc brake system from 917 with center-lock wheels Adjustable brake balance Wheels: BBS rims front and rear: 11.75 x 16 Dunlop Racing, front: 275/600 x16 Dunlop Racing, rear: 300/825 x 16 Gearbox: Fully-synchronized, 5-speed Porsche gearbox, 924 reinforced, slod drive, ratios to suit the course Clutch: Single-plate, dry clutch (Fichtel & Sachs) with sintered lining Engine: Four cylinder, in-line engine, water-cooled with turbocharging and charge-air intercooler, mechanical Bosch/Kugelfischer fuel injection and dry sump lubrication Bore: 86.5 mm/3.41" Stroke: 84.4 mm/3.33" Capacity: 1983.9 cc/121.02 in³ Compression: approx. 6.8 : 1 Output: 320 hp (235 kW) at 7000 rpm Max. torque: 39 mkp/282 lb.-ft. at 4500 rpm Dimensions: Wheelbase: 2400 mm/94.6" Track, front/rear: 2534/1504 mm - 60.4/59.3" Length: 4200 mm/165.6" Width: 1850 mm/72.9" Height: 1200 mm/47.3" Fuel capacitiy: 120 litres/31.7 gal.
