It will be interesting to see how much that reaches. I guess non-originality will put a few potential buyers off

Certainly unique in the market. There should be some well endowed wallets for that auction adding to their car collections. For someone collecting Porsche's in the multi £100,000's regions this car would still be pin money for £20k. Can't see it going for more, but lets see. Could be a 'bargain' for someone considering the cost to the OPC to do the resto

I remember being heavily drawn to this car at the NEC, largely because of its fab seventies colour and its oversized tyres

Not sure about the 944 being its "big brother" - more like its tubby sister! :grin:

Seeing the green 924 in museum in Stuttgart sparked the decision to buy one for myself two months later.

The signal green 924 n/a at the Porsche Museum is one of the best looking Porsches in there ....
