1985 Porsche 924

Ideal starter classic Porsche from long term ownership; 2.0 litre 5-speed showing just 52,296 miles with 22 old MOTs and 31 service stamps

Dating from August 1985 this tidy and low mileage Porsche 924 shows just 52,296 miles which look to be genuine, and therefore uncommonly low mileage for its age.

Finished in Guards Red and sitting upon a set of polished face 15inch alloy wheels the car looks well. With our vendor since August 2015, he has cosseted the car during his tenure and kept it in a stock state. The paintwork although bright has suffered some fade in places as pictured but is largely presentable.

Under the bonnet, we find the VW/Audi/Porsche collaboration 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine (with Porsche designed cylinder head) which develops 123bhp driving the rear wheels via 5-speed manual transmission with a conventional H-pattern ‘box.

Inside, we find half-leatherette/cloth interior with manual adjustment, sun-roof, electric windows, electric mirrors, headlamp washer jets and original radio – a charming place to be with small rear seats for children or unlucky adults and usefully sized hatch back boot with spare wheel.

The history file includes the V5C showing 5 former keepers, the owner’s pack and service book revealing it to have been supplied by Swinford Motors Porsche dealer of the West Midlands. The book contains an impressive 31 service stamps, 18 of which were by Porsche main dealers, the rest by independents. The last service stamp is undated with no mileage (as with the last 11 oddly) by Central Garage of Hereford. In addition, we find 5 further stamps for brake fluid changes.

The file also includes a Top Gear ‘top drives’ book for planning epic trips, period sales brochure, Octane mag featuring the 924, 22 old MOTs dating back to 1993 at 25,554 miles up to the current, valid until February 2022 at 52,241 miles which recorded just 1 advisory for corrosion to a brake pipe/covered in grease/other material. An additional file of invoices for routine maintenance, parts and correspondence dating back to 1988 at which time the mileage was recorded at 19,140 miles.

Ready to be enjoyed this low mileage example must surely tick many boxes for any budding classic car enthusiast offering ample performance and lower running costs with the cachet of the Porsche badge on the bonnet.
