Not a normal Porsche 924
In 1980, Porsche entered the 924 at Le Mans, and needed to homologate a race car to meet Group 4 racing regulation. The homologation version was called the 924 Carrera GT that incorporated wider front and rear wings.
A step up from the GT was the GTS, of which 59 were made. These are more powerful than the 924 Carrera GT thanks largely to running increased boost and are easily distinguished by the enclosed headlamp covers replacing the pop-up headlights on the GT, and an intercooler in front of the engine rather than on top of it. Beneath the beefy body is also a proper rose-jointed suspension, with aluminum semi-trailing arms and coil springs rather than the torsion bars of lesser 924s. Courtesy of that 245hp and 247lb ft of torque, the 1,984cc slant four is good for 0-62mph in 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 155mph.
15 of the 59 were Clubsport models, which were even more powerful and lighter than the GTS with 280hp. The Clubsport model also featured a Matter Roll cage, stripped out interior and 935 racing seats. The doors and hood were also constructed out of a Kevlar composite.
With just 750 kilometers, this 924 GTS Clubsport was just acquired by the Ingram Collection from the original owner. It was purchased from the Porsche factory with a complete spares package and is most original example left in the world
