1986 Porsche 924 S 2.5 petrol
Fabby Porsche for plebs, looks best with dents
Clutch release fork bent(!)
Oil/water intercooler seals failed.
Exhaust manifold cracked.
Engine mounts failed.
Various trivial electrical faults.
For a fourteen year-old, 6,000 guilder car, this has been fabulous fun.
Despite the list of mechanical faults, only one (the clutch) actually resulted in a breakdown (the others being merely expensive). This car has ALWAYS started, and with one exception only has always got us home, in great style.
It's fun to drive but rather expensive to maintain (seems to be 4 or 5,000 guilders each year). Worth every cent though.
The downside... I've had to spend almost 1,000 guilders on badges (I've had nine stolen, at about 100 guilders a pop). Booooo!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
