Description

This Porsche 924 Turbo is a rare car in its own right; low ownership, low mileage and a fabulous service history.  Add that to the list of “unobtanium” parts and hundreds of man hours that have been employed to create a Carrera GT homage and you get something very special.

Having been subjected to an incredibly thorough transformation into a Carrera GT homage whilst at the same time stripped to bare metal and bodily restored, it’s one of the finest 924’s we’ve come across.

Unlike most tribute cars, the work carried out in this case was done by skilled professionals with a full photographic record of the process.  Showing how carefully the rear wings were cut and reprofiled to correctly take the original Carrera GT extended arches is just one example.

During the transformation, the engine had a top end rebuild and was enhanced by a Mittal Motors distributor improving the engine’s performance. At the same time the suspension was refreshed, the interior had new carpets and headlining, whilst new Recaro heated and cooled seats were sourced for some added support and comfort.

Driving this car does not disappoint, great mid-range punch and the extra grip from the wide Fuch alloys make it the king of B-roads, obviously whilst looking “the part”.
