1979 924 Turbo Research


Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 924 turbo; Year: 1979; Engine (type, size, modifications): 2.0; Total Mileage: 70,000;

I am currently restoring an unusual 1979 924 turbo. the car is a european specification "grey market" car that has been fully modified with factory carrera gt body parts. these are not the aftermarket fibreglass pieces available domestically. Anyway, I have been trying to figure out some info on this car and do some research on it, particularly, who in germany might have modified the car. I contacted Porsche in germany and they informed me that due to legal reasons they can not give out information on where the car or to who the car was delivered. they suggested a certificate of auth which really won't tell me if the car might have been sent to the factory for these modifications. any thoughts comments or recommendations on how I could get some information on my car would be great. the extent of my restoration of this unusual car will depend upon what it actually is. I understand that there were 6 carrera gt prototypes built by porsche in and around 1979. is this one? not sure. the vin# is 9249400099 so it is one of the first 100 924 turbos built.
