1981 924 Turbo Overheating

Engine

Vehicle Information: Model(924/944): 924 Turbo; Year: 1981; Engine (type, size, modifications): Stock?; Total Mileage: ??? Odometer stopped working.;

I recently bought a 1981 924 Turbo as a fixer-upper. The seller told me the car knocks under heavy boost. I didn't notice the symptom during my test drive, but on my drive after purchasing the car I noticed that the car gets quite a bit hotter than my 85 944. The heat gauge has been replaced because it wasn't working properly. The generic heat guage reads up to 210F (borderline red) at operating temperatures. The Fans seem to cycle normally. The Seller told me 924Turbos run quite a bit hotter than 944s. Is this true? This is normal for a 931?
