This is a rare and collectable Porsche. The 924S Le Mans of 1988 is a limited edition to celebrate Porsche’s 12th outright win in the Le Mans 24-hour race. Just 74 were supplied to the UK, of which half were black with turquoise detailing, and the remainder were finished in Alpine White with ochre detailing – like this superb example. The special trim extends to ‘Le Mans’ side stripes and body-coloured wheels with ochre inserts.
Inside, the Le Mans boasts supportive and comfortable Sports finished in grey with Ochre pinstripes and piping. The door cards have the same treatment.
However, there is much more to the Le Mans than this. The suspension sits 10mm lower than standard, with firmer springs and dampers, plus an uprated front antiroll bar; all this, combined with the 924S’s near 50/50 weight distribution, makes the Le Mans the best-handling of the 924 range. There is also an electrically tilting and removable sunroof, while the engine output of 160bhp is the same as that of the contemporary 944.
This low-mileage example is in fantastic condition, inside and out. We have just undertaken a large amount of work to bring it up to our standards, including changing the cambelt, rectifying some oil leaks, a full service, fitting new ignition leads and distributor cap, replacing all the brake flexible hoses and brake pads, changing the clutch and brake fluids, and we have fitted four new tyres. This Porsche now wants for nothing. It even has a ‘924’ registration plate!
