Excuse me Ben if I'm splitting hairs, but the S is also n/a, so can we call the base model the 2.0 or just plain 924 as per Richard's list?

A bit pedantic surely?

The S is a model in it's own right and universally understood.

Perhaps for consistency use 924, 924 turbo and 924S as we have in the Buyers Guide?

I only mentioned it as I've seen others make the same suggestion. It doesn't bother me as I know what NA refers to.

It would actually make more sense to put the turbo in the middle, both for chronological order and because many of its specifications are the same as either the 924 (coolant etc.) or the 924S (brakes etc.)

Nice work Ben!

I prefer 924 to NA too, and I agree that the 924 turbo would be better between the 924 and the 924S.
