1981 924 CARRERA GTS CLUB SPORT

New Condition! 40 original miles One of only fifteen 924 Carrera GTS “Club Sport” homologation specials 2.0 litre 270 HP 2337 lbs total weight.

The Porsche 924 was initially developed between Volkswagen and Porsche to replace the victorious 912 and 914. The 924 would become the new level entry car for Porsche. It was designed using a front engine and rear wheel drive layout, making it Porsche’s first road-going front engine production configuration. The 924 was revealed in November of 1975, featuring a 4-cylinder normally aspirated engine. Three years later, a turbocharged version was introduced to the market, and it was an instant hit around the world.

In 1981, Porsche decided to enter Group 4 racing utilizing the 924 production model. The 924 Carrera GTS variant would be 330 pounds lighter, with a lowered suspension and feature an upgraded engine producing 210 HP, the first step into making the 924 a true race car.

Following this, Porsche took another step by creating 50 street legal samples named the Carrera GTS. The car featured fixed headlights, slightly wider wheel arches, and a lightweight hood held in place with hood pins. 3 of these examples competed at the 1981 24 hours of Le Mans and finished in an amazing 6th, 12th, and 13th overall. With this successful recipe, Porsche created 15 examples of the Carrera GTS Club Sport, featuring a larger 2.0L 270HP engine and additional oil coolers, making it one of the fastest production cars Porsche had ever built at the time.
