1980 Porsche 924 Turbo Series 1 from North America
Fast fun for a little money
Seats had tears when purchased.
Several small oil leaks due to dry hoses.
Sunroof seal needed replaced.
Purchased car for $1200. After some general maintenance, the car runs like a top. It is seriously fast with very little turbo lag. As my wife describes it, "You are running and then someone comes behind you and starts pushing you faster."
Handles better than anything I have ever driven. 90 degree turns easily at speed in 4th gear.
We owned a Cavalier and now a Jimmy for daily drivers, and the old 924 is by far our favorite. Has handling and speed, with fuel economy in the mid 20's mpg.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
