With Porsche at the forefront of turbo technology, and the 924 chassis ripe for exploitation with more power, this car’s development was inevitable. Thanks to a 45bhp power boost that raised top speed by nearly 20mph, a five-speed gearbox and uprated suspension, the 924 Turbo was very well received and over 12,000 were sold over a five-year period. Easily identified by the row of four extra air intakes in the nose panel and NACA duct in the bonnet, they also got five- rather than four-bolt wheels and were the first 924s to use the discreet but effective rear lip spoiler.
