Carrera GT | Porsche 924 | Daddys-Carparts
After a successful sales run of both naturally aspirated and turbo models in 1980, Porsche unexpectedly released the 924 Carrera GT, making clear their intention to enter the 924 in competition. By adding an intercooler, increasing compression to 8.5:1 as well as various other little changes, Porsche was able to develop the 924 Turbo into the race car they had wanted, dubbing it the "924 Carrera GT".
A 924 Carrera GTR campaigned by GTi Engineering in 1982 and 1982. Visually it differed to the 931 in that it had polyurethane plastic front and rear flared guards, a polyurethane plastic front spoiler, a top mounted air scoop for the intercooler, a much larger rubber rear spoiler and a flush mounted front windscreen. It lost the 931's NACA duct in the hood but retained the air intakes in the badge panel. This more aggressive styling was later used for as motivation for the 944. In order to comply with the homologation regulations, the 924 Carrera GT and later 924 Carrera GTS were offered as road cars as well.
Clubsport versions of the GTS were also available. 924 Carrera GT variations were known by model numbers 937 (left hand drive) and 938 (right hand drive). The ultimate development of the 924 in its race trim was the 924 Carrera GTR race car.
