924 Carrera GT – Replica

Among others, GT Racing has been making a kit of body parts that replicate the Carrera GT that was homologated and raced as a 924T (931) in the early 80’s.  I had the opportunity to build one of these kits in 2001, using a 1988 924S as a base, and it turned out quite well.

The Shame of Ownership

Will our cars ever get to the classic level that the 930 or 89 911 Speedster has attained? Probably not, but if you browse the national auction sites, you will find that these cars are bringing higher and higher prices on the block.  

Brakes…There’s a Problem…

Here at 924S944.com, we have a theory – there are no cores, so therefore no rebuilt calipers.  Unfortunately, you cannot print out calipers on your 3-D printer – at least, not yet.  Until that happens, there will be few calipers at the auto supply store.

2.0L 924 GT Makes Racing History

In 1980, Porsche declared their intention to go racing with a special version of the 931 called the 924 Carrera GT.  With only 406 examples made for homologation, this rare Porsche had 210 horsepower, Fuchs wheels and a five-speed transaxle.  The front fenders are the same as were used on the 944 when introduced in 1983 with flares on the  outside of the rear fenders to accommodate wider track.
