From time to time, 924S944.com rescues and sells a few cars. Listed here are cars that are either for sale or coming up for sale soon.
924S944 does not do complete concours restorations. Instead, we refurbish cars to be great driver’s cars with all or most of the factory systems working as they should. Since we are in Central Florida, we concentrate on air conditioning! Sunroofs work, hatches work, no leaks, no electrical gremlins – just like you would make it for yourself.
1988 Porsche 924S Special Edition
66,000 Miles One Owner $25,000
This is a wonderful ONE-OWNER 924S Special Edition that is in ORIGINAL CONDITION! It even has the original cloth seats – not reproduction. At the Porsche Werks Reunion at the Amelia Island Concours last year, this car won Third Place in its class! If you are looking for a 924S Special Edition in original condition, this is your car.
The 924S Special Edition was produced in July 1987 as some of the first 1988 924S models that came off the line. There were 980 built worldwide with around 500 of them shipped for the North American market. This makes the 924S Special Edition one of the most rare production Porsches ever made.
So what is so special about the 924S Special Edition? This model is a “lightweight” that was produced with weight savings in mind. Gone were the power windows and power mirrors – instead, it has crank windows and lighter plastic side mirrors. Even the right side mirror was an option! The M030 suspension option was included with height-adjustable 250# coil-over front struts and larger rear torsion bars, paired up with 944 Turbo sway bars and Koni Sport shocks. Porsche staggered the wheels with 15×6 on the front and 15×7 on the rear. While a few were built with the optional sunroof, most were delivered without a heavy power sunroof. North American cars all came with air conditioning, power steering and a Blaupunkt cassette radio, because we are Americans and we want those things. The 1988 924S and 944 2.5 single cam came with a higher compression ratio, boosting horsepower from 147 to 160. (That doesn’t sound like much, but is it an almost 9% increase!)
