Evaluation: Showing 19,389 actual miles. A few sizable chips on the nose and front bumper but otherwise good original paint. Clean plastic and glass. Interior shows nearly no wear. Carefully owned and maintained 924 S, the last of the series and the only one to have a proper Porsche engine, even if it is water-cooled and in the front.
Bottom Line: Dismissed by many enthusiasts and neglected by many owners, the 924 does actually have rather desirable and collectible variants, like the Turbo and the Carrera GT. The 924 S is, on balance, a good car thanks to its detuned 944 engine rather than the 2.0-liter VW engine of old. In effect it’s a cheaper, narrow-body 944. These have still been in “cheap Porsche” territory for much of their existence, though, so this massive price owes a lot to the fact that it’s one of the rare examples treated like a much more valuable car, seldom driven and always maintained.
