The definitive history of the internationally popular Porsche 924, including motorsport. Expert guidance on buying a 924.
Over 220 illustrations, mainly in colour, acquired with the full assistance of Porsche.
Designed by Dr Porsche to a Volkswagen commission, the 924 broke the Porsche tradition of an air-cooled, rear mounted power unit. This sea-change in Porsche design philosophy dismayed many diehard Porsche fans, but succeeded in making the marque more accessible and led to a whole line of very fine front-engined Porsches. Affordable, durable and with excellent performance and handling, the 924 is now well established as a desirable and practical classic.
