Lovely 1984 Porsche 924 2.0 in iconic Guards Red with black pin-stripe velour and leatherette interior, black carpets, removable targa-style sunroof, and desirable optional extra Turbo-style alloy wheels. Five-speed manual gearbox. As a late UK Lux spec car, it comes with electric windows, electric tilt and remove sunroof, electric heated mirrors, electric boot release, leather steering wheel and gear gaiter, rear wiper, and tinted glass. It is a completely original, looked-after example with a relatively low mileage. With around only 500 924s left on the road in the UK, it is rare to find one in this condition. INTERIOR The cars interior is in excellent shape, making the cabin a lovely place to spend time. The leather steering wheel and gearstick both have minimal wear, with no nasty holes or worn areas. There is the inevitable cracking on the top of the dashboard, but nowhere near as bad as some. The carpets, leatherette doorcards, interior trim, and switchgear are all in great shape. The front seats are excellent, with no rips, tears, sunbleaching, or bolster wear. There are small splits along the seams on the bases where the vinyl and velour meet a relatively simple fix. One of the rear seat bases has a small tear in the velour. The rear luggage cover roller blind retracts as it should, and the leatherette bag for the removable sunroof panel is present. A late 1980s Blaupunkt Dusseldorf SQR49 cassette-radio and recent speakers are fitted, which work well and sound great. All the interior and dash lights work exactly as they should. EXTERIOR From the outside, the car is a real head-turner. The bodywork looks fantastic from a few feet and the Guards Red really pops in the sun. However, on closer inspection, minor blemishes (filled-in scratches and stonechips), rubbed-through edges, and crazing on the bonnet are all visible. The car has received paint in some areas in the past so there are now several slightly different shades of red. There are also some minor dings, but nothing a PDR expert couldn't fix. The wheels are straight and undamaged but do have some white worm on the diamond cut faces. The car is rust free and has a fully galvanised bodyshell. MECHANICALS Mechanically, the car is ready to drive and has benefitted from a lot of work over the last 2-3 years. The fuel and ignition systems have been thoroughly overhauled and set up by an expert in Bosch K-Jetronic. The throttle response is now excellent, and the car pulls cleanly and strongly through the rev range. There are no problems with the hot or cold starts that can plague these models. A Dansk stainless exhaust is fitted. The gear lever shaft has been replaced so the gearshift is tight and smooth. The steering is light and precise, and the car runs on recent Pirelli tyres. The electrics have been systematically cleaned and tested, so all the electrical systems and lights work exactly as they should. The car has been given a detail inside and out, and was fully serviced (Mobil oil, OE Beru sparkplugs, new OE oil, air, and fuel filters) on 7 January 2021. Very few miles have been done since. The cambelt and tensioners and water pump were replaced with Continental/Meyle items in April 2017, at around 100,000 miles. The car is now on 106,000 miles. HISTORY Unusually, the car comes with details from the DVLA of all the cars previous keepers, and correspondence with some of the former owners. It is clear that the car has been looked after throughout its life. This correspondence includes details of a mechanical overhaul circa 2006 / 80,000miles that included a new clutch, steering rack rebuild, brake refurbishment, new injectors, new engine mount, and a head overhaul with new valve seats and a full decoke. Unfortunately, the invoices that documented this work (which cost over 3000) are no longer present. The car was sold initially by AFN Porsche in Isleworth (the original dealer plates are present) and is believed to have been an atrium car, i.e. one that was on display in the showroom. Also present are the Certificate of Authenticity from Porsche, MOT certificates going back to 1990, a huge sheaf of invoices for work since 2017, and the original service book and folder, with stamps at 14/06/84 976miles; 02/10/84 3027miles; 05/02/85 6255miles; 28/10/85 12222miles; 26/11/86 23877miles; 10/10/87 28012miles; 08/09/88 34819miles; 02/10/89 39481miles; 04/09/90 46875miles; 23/07/91 49318miles; 16/09/92 52369miles; 08/06/93 56769miles; 07/01/21 106223miles. OVERALL, this is a lovely car to drive that can be used as fun, everyday transport or a practical starter classic. Ignore the rubbish about the VW van engine. This is a nippy little sports car with fantastic handling that never fails to turn heads. I have enjoyed owning it over the past few years and have used it regularly without trouble. It has been used to travel between West Yorkshire and London several times, for numerous trips to Ikea, and in summer 2020 was used for a trip to France with
