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.

924 ITB: Update

It seems that when Audi designed the 2.0L engine for the 924 and other cars of the early and mid seventies, they decided that strength was important. So, the crankshaft and connecting rods are all forged, not cast. That instills a lot of confidence in this little engine as far as longevity.
