Porsche 924 Carrera GTS

In late 1980, Porsche produces a limited series of 50 particularly sporty versions of the 924 GT. The 924 GTS is intended as a racing and rally version of the transaxle sports car. The engine performance is increased by 35 horsepower. Power is transferred to the rear axle via a strengthened, specially-cooled, five-speed gearbox. The lightweight body with an aluminium engine lid and doors as well as plastic fender flares and a front apron contribute to the car’s low weight and impressive aerodynamics. Mounted on the engine lid is an air scoop for the charge-air intercooler. The side and rear windows are made of plastic. The sports suspension and braking system are adopted from the 911 Turbo. On an individual basis, the 924 Carrera GTS can be approved for road use.
