Superb low mileage 924 Turbo, these 80s classics are only going one way now...
*Guards red with an unmarked cream and brown pasha interior coming with a fresh Mot
*In a private collection for the last 7 years with only occasional use, having been with its former owner for over 20 years
*A series II, this car has the higher horsepower and increased reliability over the early 924s by use of the smaller turbocharger
*A fine example of the marque, and may represent one of the few remaining opportunities to acquire such a low mileage example


No its a series 1 by nature of its chassis number and defining S1 specs
No it is an S1 so its less than S2
No its no more reliable/unreliable than an S1/2, but given its an S1 and not an S2 its unreliable buy your definition ....
No same confusion as above. S1 has larger turbine, smaller compressor and vis a vis. Turbo size does nothing to reliability

Poor copy and pasting of previous incorrect t'internet data :dope: :dope: :dope:
