Hey guys, recently acquired a 1981 924 Turbo. It'll arrive at my house next weekend, but I'm getting confused because its most certainly a 1981 model according to the chassis number, and from everything I've found in my research that should make it a series 2. Thing is, the engine has the oval shaped intake manifold with the turbo badge stuck on, which is unique to the series 1 turbos. Unfortunately I didn't take photos of the engine number, but I thought I'll ask if anyone knows if Porsche continued to make series 1 cars into 1981? And if so, when was the cut off date? Everywhere I've looked said they stopped S1 in 1980. The car is very original and I assume it was the matching engine, but maybe it was changed out over the years with an earlier one...is there also a definitive list somewhere on all the updates that differentiate the S1 and the updated S2 models? thanks in advance to anyone that can shed some light!
Porsche 924 Turbo/924 Carrera GT replica + nearly a complete spare car worth of spare parts. **** Huge price reduction **** I bought this 924T with a blown engine, I went a bit over the top with the rebuild and then proceeded to run out of time and money to finish it off. With a young family and massive work commitments, hence no time to do anything with the 924T, I have finally, reluctantly decided to sell it as an unfinished project. I have a couple of sheds full of spares, basically a complete 924T, less the bodyshell, including disassembled engine, torque tube, snail shell transaxle, F & R suspension, brakes, rear sub frame, L & R doors, bonnet, glass hatch, many, many boxes of small stuff. There's a set of 944 phone dials (as in most of the pics) and set of Compomotive (UK) 15" 3-piece Fuchs replicas. So what does it need to get it going again, the engine needs to be assembled, the block is bored, just needs a flywheel & clutch decision/purchase made, then the bottom end can be lightened and balanced, before the short motor is assembled. I was going to use either a SPEC brand clutch or a Sachs Performance clutch from Germany. There's a rebuilt standard turbo (done by Rotormaster in Somerton). The the engine needs to be put assembled . I was going to purchase one of Dan's (Ideola) water to air intercoolers, I was going to go with an aftermarket ECU, probably Link G4 or s/h Motec. There's probably more details/items that I haven't remembered, so i'll update the post when there's more to add. The car was road registered and driving when I bought it a few years ago. It had recently had a Victorian Roadworthy Certificate, so it would not be super difficult to get back on the road. I was going to get a club permit for it (about 1/7th the price of full Vic rego). It will need pads and rotors, probably a reconditioned steering rack, some suspension bushes. If you're looking to get into a good 924 Carrera GT replica project, with lots of spares, this would be a great option!! Edit: Price drop.How much do I want for it? AU$4,950 O.N.O. (just buying a new Carrera GT body kit will set you back about $3K) If you purchase this car, you will need to pick it up with a tandem trailer. Then you will need to come back with another tandem trailer to pick up all the parts. There's a lot. Car is located in Montmorency, VIC. PM me for more detail.

Hello all, Stumbled across PFA while googling last night, I've had so much fun reading the forum that I thought I'd introduce myself. I live in Queensland and have had a '81 924 turbo since 1999. This was my second Porsche, I had a 77.5 924 for 2.5 years however sold it when I moved to the turbo. The 924 turbo is stock (apart from stereo head unit, speakers in doors) however plan to install a water/ air intercooler (without damaging/ modding car) at some stage in next year or two. Five years ago I purchase an '81 SC coupe which was my introduction to air cooling and 911s. Car is stock apart from the stereo head unit and normal upgrades (eg. tie rod ends if remember). Spent a weekend recently sorting out the sunroof (does anyone know a source of wind deflectors) and enjoyed open air motoring during the Qld Porsche club's 40th aniversary drive. I became a Porsche fan at the age of 12 when I played Test drive on my commodore 64. When out driving with my family when growing up, I'd send them nuts as I'd always jump out of my skin with excitement whenever I saw a Porsche go by. Would have liked a 911, 928 or 944 as my first Porsche however could only afford a 924 at the time. The 924 series have increasingly grown on me over time, these days I rarely see any others on the road (in 2014 there were 65 924 turbo registered in the UK, I doubt there would be more than 20 registered in Australia). Increasingly I find that car enthusiasts are actually impressed at seeing the 924. The general public always want to know about my 911, most wouldn't recognise the 924 as a Porsche. When I purchased the 911 I was tempted by 928s and 951s however I really wanted to live my Test drive fantasy. Love the sound of the 911, and the feeling of driving history, however I'm still amazed at how 'old school' the driving positon feels. When new, the 924 turbo was a similar price to the 911SC, I once wondered why anyone would have bought the 924 over the 911. After driving them both (especially with something in boot) the practicalities and turbo fun of the 924 does present a certain charm. I was never super impressed with the 996 series however over the last 12 months I've developed a real itch for the turbo, GT3 and GT2 variants. Spent an enjoyable weekend last weekend drooling over a turbo s and GT2 and was suitably impressed with a carrera 4. I look forward to taking one for a spin one day. Actually stumbled across this forum trying to scratch this particular itch, normally I just lurk on 924.org, rennlist and pelican. Next Porsche (dream Porsche)??? Yes the million dollar question. Up to relatively recently I would have said a 993 turbo however their appeal has diminished for me a little in recent years. Strong contenders outside the 996 range would include 924 GT, series 2 944, 928.. possibly a Cayman (all 911 series considered by default). Recently had a sit in a Macan, they seem to be somewhat of a 'bargain' and have a decent towing capacity (3500kg). Suspect final decision wlll be based on how much I continue to enjoy track days. Thanks all for listening to my ramblings, keep up the good work with the forum.
