1986 Porsche 924S, 2,479cc. registration number C427 XSC. Chassis number WPOZZZ92ZGN401227. Engine number 43G05647.
Porsche introduced the 924 in 1975, it was their first front engine/rear wheel drive car. Developed in conjunction with VW/Audi, it was built with the block from the Audi 100 but fitted with a Porsche designed head and when fitted with Bosch K-Jet Tronic injection made 95 bhp.
It was an entry level Porsche, its straight line performance was good but no threat to a 911, but with its rear transaxle gearbox had perfect weight distribution for outstanding handling. It proved to be so popular that it even remained on sale alongside its replacement, the 944.
XSC was sold by Glen Henderson Motors of Glasgow to Alistair Ferguson on the 2nd February 1986, then came Roger Smith and Dr John Barton. There are 20 Porsche main agent or specialist stamps in the service book and our vendor had the cambelt changed at 104461 miles in 2016. Michael Charlton bought it in 2002 and it was sold to our vendor in 2013, at that time it had 103,950 miles on the odometer. During his tenure he has maintained it at home including replacing brake and fuel lines. The MOT expired in 2018 at 104,463 miles, only some 500 miles in 5 years, since when it has been dry stored.
Due to advancing years he has decided to part with it and it was driven onto the trailer for delivery from the North East. Spicers have driven it around our compound and found it handles well although the brakes are binding and the windows do not operate.
Sold with the V5C, service book and owners manual, DVLA MOT history since 2006, various receipts for parts and photographs. The original interior is in particularly good condition for a 1986 Porsche. It will need recommissioning for road use.
