Porsche 924 Specials & Motorsport Models

The 924 Carrera GTP, GTS and GTR make up the core Porsche 924 specials, all three racing variations made in very limited numbers. Only six GTP cars were produced in 1980, three of which were special LeMans race cars. The cars had the 2.0L turbocharged 924 engine and increased boost to increase output to 320 HP and a top speed of 180 mph. Porsche built fifty-nine of the Carrera GTS in 1981, this ultimate street 924 GTS Club Sport included some race parts, but even in street trim had such things as an aluminum roll cage, lightened body, 935 seats, 911 Turbo brakes, and 280 horsepower. The Carrera GTR was the ultimate 924 Street/Race Car in 1981. The GTR had larger flares, larger wheels and tires, improved brakes and a whopping 375 horsepower from the 2.0L turbo dry-sump engine.
