"ah..." you may say, "it's just another 924...there's plenty of those." but you'd be an idiot in saying so because with only 3,536 made, it's almost a rarity to see a first year 924 S—even rarer still, one with LSD.

this is very important little car that packs a good amount of historical significance. you see there's a little known fact the Porsche was at one point intending the 924S to be the 944, that is to say they planned on putting Porsche's newly made four-cylinder lump into the 924's slender physique. when CEO Schutz saw the 924 Carrera GT's aggressive styling, he was sold on that design and declared that the upcoming new 944 should follow that.

what Porsche did with the S is essentially add the 944's engine in a detuned state by knocking back the compression from 10.6:1 to 9.7:1 going from 163bhp to 150bhp. had Porsche not done this, the 924 S would've given the 944 a pants-down spanking in the speed department, since it slices through the air far better than the swollen-fendered 944 with a .33cd. the S would then be uprated to 160bhp towards the end of it's life in 1988.

that being said, you may be taking a leap of faith with this particular specimen. the seller claims "no balance shaft belt," and some "engine repair" made by Porsche which means you need to do some serious investigation before committing to it especially since this car never left the Fatherland...i.e. driven hard and probably put away a wee bit wet. still, though, she's worth it for the LSD gearbox if nothing else...it would make a kick-ass commuter car to boot!

viel Erfolg mein schatz!
