PORSCHE PRESS KIT 1979 - Germany - 924

The most popular sports car that Porsche has ever developed.

Porsche 1979

In its fourth model year, the successful Porsche 924 is technically unchanged. The model constancy valued by Porsche buyers, which, in addition to the six-year long-term guarantee, has a considerable effect on the price of used cars, is of course no accident. Like all Porsches, the 924 was developed with a view to the future for a long production period.

The 2-liter, 4-cylinder engine of the 924, which has a top speed of over 200 km / h, develops 125 hp at 5800 rpm. In the transaxle system, it is connected to the gearbox and differential on the rear axle via a central, rigid tube. As a result, Porsche has achieved a practically balanced weight distribution and optimum driving behavior.

The only changes to model year 1979, in accordance with customer requirements, relate to new colors, fabric-clad door insides and the now standard equipment with light alloy rims.
