PORSCHE 924/944 (1975-93) CAR HISTORY

Car review on PORSCHE 924/944

The Porsche 924 was conceived in the early 1970s as a joint project with Volkswagen/Audi, to be designed by Porsche but produced and marketed by Volkswagen using as many stock VW parts as possible. The engine was the fuel-injected 2.0-litre unit from the Audi 100 - also found in the VW LT van -and, while the rear transaxle was new, the gears inside were Audi, too.


It was only when the fuel crisis began to bite hard, and sales of the ugly-duckling VW-Porsche 914 began to flag, that Porsche realized it was faced with the prospect of having no cheap sports-car to sell in the second half of the 70s. With the 911's future also uncertain, Porsche decided to take over the project as a pure Porsche model, with production subcontracted to VW.


Launched in 1975, the 924 was an instant success. However, tills was no 911: the van-derived engine could be raucous when pressed, even if it endowed the 924 with brisk acceleration and a 125mph (201kph) top speed in its long-legged fifth gear. More impressive was the handling, The perfect 50/50 weight distribution giving the 924 a well-balanced poise that allowed even novices to drive quickly and safely, with precise, informative and light steering — not unlike a 911's — allied to slight roll angles. The gearbox was pleasant to use and a few 924s were even built with automatic transmission.


The 924 Turbo of 1978 hardened the model's performance image in the late 70s. Its 170bhp came courtesy of a KKK turbocharger. Top speed surged from 125mph (201kph) to 141mph (227kph), and acceleration was almost in the super car class with 0—60mph (0—96kph) in 6.9 seconds. Stiffer suspension and better brakes meant the handling was even more polished. Cooling slots in the nose and discreet spoilers singled this model out from the ordinary 924.


In the 1980s, the 944, with a proper Porsche 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine — effectively half a 928 V-eight - finally shook off associations with the VW LT van, although the 924 itself lingered on until 1985. In fact, the 944 was a very different car with big wheel-arches, fatter wheels and tires and a lower stance. It got twin cams in 1986, and was joined by a Turbo version in 1986, that was good for nearly 160mph (257kph). The last-of-the-line three-liter models came in both closed and convertible forms. Even then the model did not die: the 1993 Porsche 968, which lasted until 1995, was a radically evolved version of the 944.
