Hi I am considering buying an E reg 924s Le Mans, I believe these are rare limited editions, 37 in white and 37 in black.

Can anyone tell me how many there is left on the road as "how many left" doesn't seem to narrow it down to just the Le Mans ?

Also any other info greatly appreciated ?

Thanks in advance

The 924 Register database reveals 18 cars, 12 black and 6 white, only one of those is not confirmed by chassis number.
There may be more Le Mans cars that are incorrectly named on the database.

Hope this helps, I wonder if you are looking at a 'new' one to the Register?

Hi Craig

Do you still own it ?

That's quite strange how you bought yours so very close to Wallsend/North Shields were the previous two owners that owned mine are from...

No, bought it 2003,it was written off 2006!!! I argue it wasn't my fault. So definitely maximum of 36 black ones left. I was visiting my dad in Durham when we saw the ad in the local rag, got it for £1800, wasn't perfect cosmetically but mechanically was very tight, drove brilliantly. Me and the mrs remember it fondly. Any more details on your potential purchase?

Hi folks,I,ve just dropped in from the 944 site next door,I am a 44 S2 owner for 7 years now, but have always been interested in The 924 especially the turbo.
I have recently made contact with a lad here in Ireland selling his 924T, I have yet to arrange to view but,in my opinion it is a cracker; 69,000 miles(genuine afaik),Green on green 2 tone,beige leather interior,clutch and gearbox and brakes recently done,
lots of up to date work done,paint in good nick for a 32 year old car..All in all it seems a very good car,the price is very good (I think),condition seems better then my s2, and that has been a pile of money...
For me these cars are;Rare getting rarer,Now classed as classic here in Ireland 56euro road tax as opposed to 1400 a year for s2,I have spoken to the selleron a couple of occasions he is genuine and I have found out originally from my locality.I would be delighted to here from some owners here about their experiences with the mark and any major troubles,and if they like me consider the hunch to be worth following up on(Idont think this opportunity will come around any time soon again ,and even in the UKgood ones are few and far between

The car is currently posted for sale on Carzone.ie
Cheers, Ciaran

Hi Paul, just bought my Alpine White early model Le Man 924. After checking out google these earlier ones with 2.0ltr engine also seem quite rare. Only thing is these where an 1980/81 car and mine is 1984 Looks exactly as they do in the pics has the same interior etc. Still has Yorkshire JCT original number plates and door sill proctector plates and only done 50k last owner had it for around 10 years and hardly went out in it. Also still has the option sticker in the boot. Wondering how many of this model may be left?
Appreciate any feedback.
Regards Greg.

I have owned a few Porsches including all of the 924 range except a proper 924 Carrera GT.
Of all the sports cars that I have owned, Porsche and others, the 924 Series 2 Turbo is far and away the best fun car. The fuel consumption is better that 30mpg overall, fitting new cambelt is a 20 minute job, My car was faster than my 911 2.7S and it was totally reliable in the 7 years that I owned it.
When looking for a 924 Turbo, the Series 2 (identified by the side indicators) is arguably the better car. The turbo boost comes in much earlier than the series 1 making it nicer to drive (unless you like a kick in the seat ay 4K rpm. It is faster than the series1 and more economical.
 
Having said that they are both fine cars.
