Chassis no. 92A0433231. Monaco Blue with red pinstripe over black. 1985/110hp, 5-speed, phone dial wheels, Kumho tires, sunroof, air conditioning, power windows, JVC cassette stereo.

Evaluation: Showing 35,191 believable miles that are represented as actual. Clean wheels. Mild scrape on the bottom front lip. Paint looks original, and quite good. The plastic rear spoiler is a little dry and dull but not bad. Excellent all-original interior. Remarkably clean underneath. Very, very few 924s have been so well and consistently kept as this. It’s a great example.

Bottom Line: Like 914s, 924s suffer from an identity problem. They were originally designed in a joint venture with Volkswagen, were built in an Audi factory, and came with a coarse, buzzy, water-cooled 2.0-liter Audi engine under the hood. Even compared to the “cheap” Porsches (914s, 944s, Boxsters) they aren’t worth much at all.

But they make a simple, fun first Porsche and this one has been treated like a more valuable car. It was withdrawn this year from Mecum Monterey, where it would have gotten more Porschephile eyes on it and probably would have brought more money, but this is still a strong, sound price for it.
