1983 Porsche 924 LUX 2.0 from UK and Ireland
A great cheap entry to Porsche virtues
Car bought as a restoration project. Items replaced are typical for any car this age:
Drivers seat torn (now repaired)
Dashboard cracked - normal.
Welded inner wings.
All new brake lines.
New Rear suspension.
New HT leads and plugs.
2 rusty front wings- now replaced.
Faded paint - now T-cut back.
Fuel leak - now repaired.
Replaced starter motor - quite common problem.
Great looking car - especially in Guards Red.
Handles very well.
Great balance on corners.
Power is OK - could handle more, but reasonably brisk beyond 3,000 rpm.
Still in good shape thanks to galavanized body (buy post 81!)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
