In 1980, Porsche introduced the turbo-charged 924 Carrera GT. Previously, the 924 was seen as a lackluster feat of badge-engineering with an engine from an Audi van. The Carrera GT instantly changed the image of the front-engine Porsche. Racing models would be introduced that would dominate several important international races winning their class at Le Mans. The turbo-charged Carrera GT delivered stunning performance in an aggressive new styling package featuring flared wheel arches front and rear as well as a prominent hood scoop to feed cold air to the turbocharger and its exotic intercooler. Only 406 examples would be produced to satisfy homologation for the racing models. Beatle George Harrison bought a black one that I used to see him driving near his home in Henley-on-Thames.

Plans for this Vehicle
I plan to restore an original Porsche 924 Carrera GT as well as to convert 924s to Carrera GT specifications.
