The 1976 Porsche 924 was a complete departure by the company, in that it featured a front-mounted, water-cooled 1984cc engine that was essentially an Audi unit which Porsche then tweaked to 125bhp. The power went to a rear-mounted gearbox and the advantage of this layout was that it gave the car near-perfect front/rear weight distribution which naturally improved the handling. The 924 was clothed in a pretty 'two plus two' bodyshell which featured a large glass hatchback giving access to a decent rear boot making this a very practical sports car. The 2-litre engine, which powered the earlier models, developed 125bhp and the maximum speed was in excess of 125mph.Things were to improve, however, with the arrival of the 924S which was fitted with an 'all-Porsche' designed 2.5-litre engine with 163bhp available. With its sure-footed handling, the car was to prove a great success and nowadays is a popular choice as a potential future classic.
This UK-spec, right-hand drive 924 S was supplied new in February 1987 by Follett Porsche in London to Mr Ashley Munir who purchased it as a gift for his daughter. From new, it was fitted with power steering, a sunroof, electric windows, an alarm, and a Hamilton Palmer music system, all factory fitted. The car was her pride and joy and she used it very sparingly, covering just 6,600 miles during her 27-year tenure. It has been maintained and serviced by main Porsche dealers on a regular basis from new, including all the fluids being changed, and is supplied with its original book pack and service history. It has to be seen to be believed as the condition is truly exceptional and is offered directly from the Stuggart Collection with 6,623 miles from new. An amazing and extremely rare opportunity to buy a totally original and highly usable classic Porsche that is, pretty much, unchanged since new.
This car has formed part of a significant collection for the past few years. In preparation for the sale, the engine will be flushed, filled with fresh oil and a new filter fitted, the fuel tank drained, flushed and filled with 20 litres of fuel, fitted with a new battery and issued with a fresh MOT Certificate. A safety check will also be carried out along with an inspection report included in the history file.
