1978 Porsche 924 Review

There Is No Substitute. Unless Its An Ls1 Powered Porsche. — v8 LS1 dominates all. Extra body add-on's make this car up to date and appear to be a brand new car, yet most people cannot believe this is car is as old and in some cases twice as old as they are.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power

Cons: MPG - But I chose it.  God Bless America!!!!

1978 Porsche 924 Review

Love This Car! — Performance - Very fast car, handling is amazing. Build Quality - I had alternator fixed and haven't had to do anything since. Appearance - Love the exterior, we had it painted and changed the rear hatch a little (took the hatch from a 944) and love it. Cost of Ownership - Cheap to drive, hightest fuel but it runs forever, insurance not that bad. Fun Factor - I love driving this car, way too much fun.

Pros: Beautiful peace of machinery.

Cons: No A/C - but hey, it is thirty years old!

Sadly Underrated By Nils

The 924 has always been laughed at, and I really don't understand why. It's a lovely little car, a true sportscar and it's fun to drive it - especially on small country roads. Read More
