Porsche 924 GTS Clubsport

Porsche 924 GTS Clubsport

Toughened for the 24-hour performance test: Porsche 924 GTS Clubsport

24-hour performance testing on roads and at the race track: Since 1923, an endurance race is held in the northwestern region of France. At the end of the 1970’s, Porsche decided to participate in the most important international endurance races in Le Mans. As per the Group 4 rules, for this Porsche had to build at least 400 homologation models. Porsche manufactured 406 and added the legendary moniker of Carrera GT to the vehicles. Porsche set a milestone with the Group-4-legible car. The 924 Carrera GT started 1980 with storming rains and strong winds and made a great start.

Wider, lower, sleeker

The sleek sportscars were available in red, silver and black and made 210 PS. This meant a substantial power increase from the then current top model (170 PS). In order to transform this increased power into driving performance, the car was made to be wider and lower, thus giving it a much sportier and matured look as compared to other popular models.

The price of Porsche 924 Carrera GT in 1980 of 60,000 DM was exactly as exorbitant as that of Ferrari 308 GTB. In terms of maximum speed, both these automobile behemoths were well matched, while accelerating the Porsche clearly outpaced the Ferrari.

Next evolution level: the 924 Carrera GTS

Derived from the Carrera GT, Porsche developed the evolution step, the 924 Carrera GTS. A total of 59 units exclusively in shining red left the factory floor. The cars can be easily differentiated from the Carrera-GT-models because of the headlights. The performance figures were again bumped up – a mind blowing 245 PS now resided under the engine hood. The GTS marked a new evolution series: It got a different drive train, the brakes of the 911 Turbo and the racing seats of the 935. Thus, Porsche was able to bring down the weight to 1121 kg. Porsche spent a lot of money for these modifications: Each car cost 110,000 DM. However, there was quite a way to go in terms of price and performance, as the future would show.

Tremendous power increase: 924 Carrera GTS Clubsport (CS)

Nothing could be faster: 270 PS and an unbelievable fighting weight of 1060 kg. With the 924 Carrera GTS Clubsport (CS), Porsche stretched its limits and reached the zenith of all road-legal Porsches. In order to keep the weight of this high-performance package low, even damping materials and other comfort elements were removed. This led to the phenomenal acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h in 5.2 seconds.

Porsche priced the Clubsport variant with a sticker price of 125,000 DM. The GTS CS was the most expensive road legal Porsche of the time by quite a margin. For comparison: The Porsche 911 SC could be had for 53,000 DM.

Built by hand: the Porsche 924 GTS CS

Porsche built 44 units of the 924-GTS-model and 17 units of the 924-GTR race car in Zuffenhausen. However, the absolute rare Porsche 924 GTS CS was built by hand in the development center in Weissach. Only 15 examples left the factory. Nine of them found their home in the USA, only six remained in Europe.

Already on the road to new records: hand-built Porsche rarity

Our car is one of the six 924-GTS-CS examples which remained in Europe. The Porsche was sold by the John Britten Garages London in 1982 to the English racing driver and team manager Richard Loyd and was in his possession for almost 30 years. The hand-built rarity has a low mileage of 42,000 km.

The Porsche 924 Carrera GTS CS has been thoroughly technically restored, so that the new owner can make new records with it.
