1986 Porsche 924 S
Tidy 2.5 manual coupe in
desirable Guards red showing just 91,900 miles with history for recent
expenditure inc. new ECU and timing belt
Dating from August 1986, this smart 924 is the bigger
engine ‘S’ variant with the pokier 2.5 four-cylinder unit mated to 5 speed
manual transmission. Finished in Guards Red with blue half vinyl and pin-stripe
interior. The car features electric windows, part electric seats, lift-out
sunroof, electric mirrors and heated rear screen.
Sat on lovely period Tele-dial alloy wheels the car looks
rather neat and svelte with the black 924S script on the lower door sections.
The car shows 91,900 miles which cannot be verified due to a lack of history.
The history file does however include invoices detailing much recent expenditure
through 2019 including a replacement timing belt, 4 new plugs, new clutch slave
cylinder, brake light switch, oil cooler seal, washer pump and wiring diagrams.
A note on file from the previous owner suggests the car was also treated to a
replacement ECU although no invoice could be located.
The car is understood to run and drive well and can be
seen running in the video for this lot. There is a current MOT which runs until
December 2020 showing six minor advisories. Given the condition, suggested
mileage and recent expenditure we think this represents affordable, and
enjoyable entry to the retro classic Porsche world and looks both good fun and
good value at the guide.
