Options : All regular factory spec of this Limited Edition car, including lift out sun roof, twin electric mirrors, electric windows, 4 spoke thick rim leather steering wheel, special edition "spider web" alloy wheels, sports suspension including front and rear anti-roll bars.
The seats, for instance, are pin-striped black leather with white piping while the Porsche script on the doors compliments the interior along with a 36cm diameter 4-spoke leather steering wheel.
On the outside, they were finished in Alpine White with subtle red, yellow, black, striping gracing the sides. They also had 6Jx15 lattice wheels like the 931, only they were 4 lugs shod with 205/60VR tires while the underpinnings included uprated dampers and front/rear sway bars.
With production figures on the low, almost exclusive side, and not knowing how many are actually left, this version can only increase in value. The price seems market correct, then, all things considered.
If this indicative of where special edition 924s are headed, the other models, aside from the Turbo and S variants, can't be too far behind. We can thank their scarcity these days on being cursed with the stigma of "Cheap Porsche" and thus neglected, discarded and treated as if it were some worthless Korean car.
Those sacrificed to the crusher will unfortunately become the reason values go up...what a shame. Buy up what's left of 'em because in 10 years time, you're going to kick yourself for passing up that faded Guards Red one behind the shitter of that Piggly Wiggly you passed on the way to work everyday.
