The energy crisis in the mid-1970s forced VW to halt a joint venture for a new sports car. Porsche therefore created the 924 as its own entry-level model to its vehicle range. It already had the striking design feature of the large glass tailgate in an early design phase. The 924 with watercooled front engine and transaxle principle was built at the Audi Neckarsulm plant from 1976.
