PostSubject: PORSCHE CARRERA GT VERY RARE CLASSIC CAR !!!!   Sun 30 Mar 2008, 10:13 pm

I would like to look at Mr David McCalmont's, 1981 Porsche Carrera GT.



This car was first reveiled at the Frankfurt Show in september 1979 and is largely based on the 924 Turbo.

This is a very RARE vehicle indeed and in the Porscha World many people would say that after the Carrera model, only numbers 9 and 11 should follow.




But only 406 of these 924 Carrera's were built and sold around the entire world, and with only 75 sold in Britain, it is a collector's dream to have one of these beauties.

The 924 Carrera GT stands out because of its plastic front wings and wheel spats with the unmistakable distinctive bonnet air scoop.But under the bonnet it was given an intercooler, that the ordinary 924 Turbo didn't have and this is what makes the GT so special.


So lets have a closer look at Dave's Dream Machine:-

AUDI POWERED 2LTR STRAIGHT FOUR
TURBOCHARGED AND INTERCOOLED

210 BHP @ 6000 R.P.M

£19211


TYRES

Here is a video link to the 924 GT in a full on race. Listen to that engine sing up the rev's.....

INTERIOR :-




Have a look at this video of the owners club in the UK and see the many different types of this Beast.

It is believed that there are less than 35 of these 924's left, out of 75 sold in the UK and that this one, 924 DNX, number 287 from the original batch of 406 made, is the only example in the entire island of Ireland, to Dave's knowledge.

So if you see the car at a show, why not stop with David and admire this beautiful rare porscha model.
