Porsche 924 spare parts
The Porsche 924 was regarded as the successor model to the VW Porsche 914, but was then launched on the market by Porsche itself. The plan was to produce a low-cost sports car with a high proportion of large series production parts from the VW/Audi program, which would be included in Audi's official sales program. The development project, in which the Porsche still ran under the designation EA 425, was stopped by Volkswagen in 1975 due to economic difficulties. Porsche completed the vehicle after acquiring the design rights and started series production in November 1975.
Motor and prices
The model produced from 1975 to 1988 is the first Porsche to use a water-cooled front engine and the transaxle drive concept. The transaxle design was rare at that time, but not a novelty. This type of drive was already used in models produced before the First World War, but also in 1937 at Skoda. In the Porsche 924, the front engine was connected to the gearbox on the rear axle. The 2-liter four-cylinder in-line engine, which was initially installed, came from the VW group and was installed in a modified form in the Audi 100 and the VW LT commercial vehicle. The manual transmission and the drum brakes are also from the Audi 100, the control arms from the VW Golf and the suspension struts from the VW Käfer. With a whole range of components from the VW/Audi program, the production costs could thus be drastically reduced, resulting in a basic price of just under DM 23,000.
Also the body of the 924 was very different from its predecessors. The design developed by Harm Lagaay is characterized by a long, forward sloping front end with folding headlights. The headlights opened automatically when the lights were on and were not visible, creating a smooth surface with low drag. The Porsche 924 combines several stylistic elements of previous vehicles. The rear window is similar to that of the Jensen Interceptor from 1966 and the rear side windows are reminiscent of the Honda Civic from 1972. On the other hand, the 924 was also the basis for various successor models.
Due to its origins in the VW group and the parts used in its construction, the 924 was not seen as a fully-fledged Porsche in its day, but today it is increasingly recognized as an old- and youngtimer. The price of the 993 is on the rise, which is why purchase advice is currently recommended.
