1988 Porsche 924S Special Edition
1988 Porsche 924 S
1988 Porsche 924S Special Edition.This is the Porsche you want! A limited production model, only 500 of this lightweight (756 option code) racing inspired model, the “club sport” model of the 924 line, were produced by Porsche for the US to celebrate their victory in the 24hrs of LeMans. In the rest of the world this model (755 option code) was referred to as the 924S LeMans.
Some of the basic mechanical features of the 1988 Porsche 924S are a 160hp 944 engine (10hp up from 1987) and aluminum suspension.For this Special Edition model the car the suspension was lowered an additional 10mm in the front and 15mm in the back, larger anti-roll bars were used both in the front and rear, and special yellow Koni adjustable shocks were also added along with offset sized wheels 6in the front and 7in the back. The exterior of all of the cars in North America was Porsche 941 black and in keeping with the lightweight ethos it came with only one small side view exterior mirror on the drivers side. The interior was also lightweight with roll up windows, lightweight burgundy carpets and gray/burgundy striped cloth seats.This particular car was ordered with both an optional sunroof and air conditioning.Hagerty’s shows this car has a nicely appreciating value for standard 924S.
Full disclosure: AC and power antenna do not work, some cracks on the dash, light just went out for the oil pressure gauge (I'll probably replace it this weekend).
This car has been refurbished mechanically with a new timing belt and water pump as well as a new clutch installed by a respected vintage German car shop, The Arvada German Garage, less than 200 miles ago.New struts for the hood and rear hatch have been put in place and a performance throttle cam was added.
The exterior been refurbished as well.When I obtained the car it was equipped with side skirts and a front spoiler, which were removed.I did leave on the rear skirt as I believe it enhances the looks. Multiple small dents have been removed and the paint buffed out. Vinyl side stripes have been added but could be removed at owners preference (to me this dresses the car up nicely). The paint shines nicely as you can see in the photos. There are a few nicks/scratches but overall it looks very very nice.The original staggered width phone dial wheels have all been refinished, look fabulous and have the desirable painted center crest.The front window was replaced due to a small crack near the mirror.
Refurbishment of the interior involved replacing the original seats with similar vintage Porsche 911 black vinyl seats and an older 924 black vinyl rear seat.The original seats will come with the car but need refinishing.Personally I would keep the vinyl seats in the car for driving and only re-install the originals if I were going to take the car to shows frequently.
Included are the original owners manual, maintenance books and paperwork from 1988-1994 as well as all work I have done on it over the last few years. Also the original seats front and rear will come with the car.
