The Porsche 924 Turbo 924turb2

3 years after the 924 emerged, Porsche
realized that it just wasn't enough, and everyone was bored with it.
It wasn't fast enough and it wasn't sporty enough. The answer? A
turbocharger, of course.

For the 1980 model year, the 924 appeared
as a turbo and a normally aspirated model. The 924 turbo was a FAST car,
especially when tested against the base model. The new model offered better
brakes, an updated body, the turbo engine, and much more pleasureful driving.
You can easily recognize a turbo 924 by its 4 front vents, as well as the
NACA duct on the hood. It also came with a new wrap around spoiler on the
hatchback. Then, when you drive it, you'll definitely recognize it!!
