My son and I just bought this car as a project. It runs pretty well except that it overheats. If anyone can give me advice on that we would appreciate it. It seems to me that the cooling fan is not coming on when it should. The car is also missing the cover (shroud?) for the timing belt. This is our first experience with a Porsche and I have not worked on cars since I rehabilitated a '56 Chevy about 35 years ago.

I purchased this car in 1983 when it was one year old and had 15,000 miles on it. It was autocrossed in Hawaii with the Hawaii Region. The car is Guards Red with power mirrors, windows and air conditioning. It has a five speed transmission and a 160 MPH speedometer. It has an autocross cam and has been lowered about 1.5 inches and has 150 lb springs in the front and Bilstein gas shocks.
The car took first place in Autocross at the 1991 Parade in Boston. I continue to enjoy driving it and it has 60,000 original miles. The engine and clutch are as strong as ever.

My car was brought from Germany in 1998. It is metallic platinum with a black interior. It was
recently fitted with 15" four bolt CSA `phone dials'. My hot start problems were eliminated completely by unplugging the cold start valve once the engine warms up. Nothing is worse than driving up to the gas pump, and then having to push your new Porsche home! Where did my Ferry Porsche embroidered seats come from?

924Central.JPG (56618 bytes)Your Webmeister. Newly purchased from another 'lister for restoration as a hot street car. The car has been rubbed out, some interior has been reinstalled, and it's running again. Still remaining are fix of the usual battery box corrosion (extremely bad in this car), followed by new floor carpet, and then a killer stereo. I'm thinking a sealed enclosure to replace the rear seat with 2 6.5"-ers and 2 8" subs, one on each side, with paired amps behind each seat for power. Should move the tunes pretty good. Oh, yeah, I'll be cranking up the boost and dropping in a 951 intercooler to make it move as well as it sounds. :)

Former customer car that had a mishap with a tow hitch on a tall truck. The car had a ripped in two nose panel, smashed headlight bucket, and rolled over hood. I replace the nose, hood and headlight, the car still needs paint. I've swapped out the entire front and replaced it with new joints, bushings, rebuilt steering box, and boots. The front has progressive rate springs, Koni Sport adjustables struts, vented rotors and metallic race pads. The rear was replaced with a sway bar mounted torsion assembly equipped with Weltmeister bushings , torsion bars and Koni adjustable sport shocks. A full flush and brake bleed was done. A four wheel alignment to exact spec was done after the new components. The car runs stock 15 inch web style wheels. The worn out shifter has been replaced with a new one. The motor has new vacuum lines, plugs and factory wires. The turbo popoff/bypass valve has been completely rebuilt.

The car is really starting to come together. Future plans are to add a 0-15 psi boost gauge and a
controllable boost regulator. The next step is one of two options, add a factory GT intercooler or add a 944T intercooler in the nose. Replace the speakers, repair a torn side bolster in the drivers seat, replace the rear cargo cover and repaint the exterior to original colors with decals. Also to replace the rims with polished 16 inch factory optioned flat dish wheels, 6 inch on the front and 7 inch on the back. I may add a larger front sway bar .

The car is grey with a black interior. Factory options are leather sport seats, rear wiper, center arm rest, four spoke leather steering wheel. All the electronic work along with ice cold AC. I should also mention this is a non sunroof coupe. All the tools , including jack are there.

This is a 1982 924 turbo (931) which was built 10/81. It was originally a champagne color but was repainted all white by the previous owner. The paint is very nicely done except that the under hood and trunk areas are still the original color. The interior is the dark brown. When it runs right it's very fast. It's in remarkably good condition but for deteriorated stitching on the leather steering wheel, faded trunk area carpet and split seams on the driver seat. It has the 15" spider web wheels. The sticker near the spare in the trunk show the following codes: Type 931 352

1982 Brown 931. Black leather interior. Purchased car as restoration project. It has 4-wheel disks, spider web 5-lug wheels, and all the extras, including sunroof. Having a Porsche has been a dream sins I was playing with Hot Wheels. I have only had it sins September. It doesnít run yet but it is all there. I have cleaned it up a lot sins it came home with me. The day I went to see it, it followed me home on the back of my pick up (on a trailer). It needs a lot of TLC and a new Turbo but all in all it isnít a bad project. I canít wait to drive it.

I bought my 82-931SE in 2000 from a fellow PCA member who had carefully stored it away in a garage in the Catskills for over a year. It was originally purchased in Roslyn, NY and seems to have spent most of it life as a Sunday driver. Since then, its been my daily driver and I've been replacing all those little things that suffer due to lack of use. The car is in exceptional condition for the same reasons though. Its a very late production 931, and has the 944 a/c system and controls, as well as many more early 944 parts. Unique to this Porsche is option E-18,which I believe is option E-18. PCNA can't even identify the option, but it's on the build sticker. Best guess is that it's a marketing option, and a few people I've spoken with have seen this decal set in Europe, but not for a long time. It also has sport buckets, small diameter 4 spoke wheel, and original 16" 924 offset wheels.

Updates include euro bumpers (in progress) , late hatch with a 944 spoiler and third brake light, and a clarion z series stereo with CD changer. More at http://members.rennlist.com/924guy, thanks for looking.

82larsson.jpg (77347 bytes)Last spring, I sold my VW Beetle and bought this 1982 924 instead. So far, I am really pleased with the car. It is in really good original condition and has done about 145 000 km (90 000 mls). It also has a few optional extras, for instance electrical rear view mirrors and a Porsche alarm system. What really impresses me about the car, though, is the way it handles. This more than well compensates for the rather boring 125 hp engine. As far as I am concerned, the 924 model definitely deserves genuine classic car status. Hopefully it will become a true classic in due time... /Fredrik Larsson

Well let me tell you about my car.  Again, I'm 16 years old and live in .  My 1982 Porsche 924 is silver with black leather and entire black interior.  Some of the features are CD player, Air Conditioning, and sunroof.  I had my transmission rebuilt in early November '98 and I'm about to take it in to have a new clutch put in.  I've just ordered Weltmeister 250 lb. front springs, K&N Air Filter, and Dino Steering Wheel.  In August '98, I had some new Borbet 15's wheels put on. Some of my upcoming plans are to work more with the handling, such as new anti-sway bars and torsion bars.    I hope to one day be able to race my car as an autocrosser. I've been looking around for an EGR (speedometer) box.  If you know of anybody that would have one, it would be great.  Thanks.

Jim Rogers FL.
At this time I am completely stripping the wrecked 931 I have, and in the process of looking for a good body, The mods I am looking at doing are pretty simple once I have the engine removed. First I will have a set of forged pistons made (there are a couple of companys that will do for a good deal) so I can run higher boost about 15psi without blowing the engine(to run this boost I will use the wastegate spring from a 911 turbo wastegate). I will have to get stronger Piston rods  to hold up under the stress. The crank will be balanced and polished. As you can see the first thing is strengthining the bottom end.(hint). I am still working on the idea of using the K27(944turbo) water cooling coupler on the 931 turbo to keep the tempature down. I am also doing some R&D on how to apply an intercooler, I have the technical drawings of the carrera GT intercooler but it may not cool as much as I need it to. I must say adding an intercooler is the easiest bolt HP for the 931. I may have to use a higher flow fuel pump. The head is a different story it is the weak link in all 924's. so I have not started on it yet. I hope to yield 250+HP, I am not only doing this to make my car faster but to prove to some nay sayers that it can be done by any do it your selfer for under $2000.00. Less than the cost of a 944 turbo (average cost $6k and UP) who's stock HP is 220 or the 944turbo S 250.

Seriously there is no secrets this in formation is availble to any one I am just using it to prove a point that the 924's are alive and kicking.

I am also looking at biulding a bolt-on turbo for the 924 I have the drawings know I need a car to do itIt will add 50-100 HP to a stock 924( not Bad)

Purchased a running nightmare! But with dedication and perseverence, this 924 is now really something! Our market is small in comparison to others, but still large enough to allow sourcing of used parts, making this project something of a budget fairytale.

The motor received the most attention, with some nasties eventually ironed out. The exhaust kept failing before the first silencer, eventually traced to a worn right engine mounting being the cause, too much flexing in one place! The sump breather pipe also blocked, and eventually was replaced after a number of memorable, but completely useless, remedies were attempted to regain smooth idling! But now it runs well.....

While slow off the mark at 2000m/ 6000ft altitude, it becomes lively after some 4000rpm. An upgrade on the cam, and a lighter set of alloys with Bridgestone Potenza rubber have made a dramatic difference to the driving experience. We have some really long sections of motorway between cities, and this car is an absolute pleasure out there. Pity about the small fuel tank in such conditions.

Replaced the boot-carpet backing, which had rotted, with 1" chipboard, cut to shape, then stuck the carpet back down onto this. Above the side wells, I mounted 2 decent quality 6" x 9" speakers, thus avoiding having to dismantle the side panels to replace rear speakers. The sound here is good, but watch loading onto the speakers, they are susceptible to damage. The front speakers in the doors work well too, much better than the central dash-mounted unit, though that now works well as part of the mobile-phone system!

The beauty of this car may be summed up in its simplicity. It accomplishes so much, so well, and without fuss, that it makes even semi-skilled drivers feel like champions, while returning them home again safely, time after time! And affordably too!
