The Porsche 924

The Carrera GTR delivered in 1981 was the homologated racing version developed on the basis of the Carrera GTP. It also had a 2.0-litre turbo engine that developed 276 kW (375 hp) at 6500 rpm. The bodywork of the 17 racing cars produced differed in part from the GTP. The rear wings did not have a straight tear-off edge and formed a flush transition to the rear lights similar to the 924 Carrera GT.

The car was sold to private racers at a net price of DM 180,000 and was also used by Porsche in Le Mans. 

Details I

In 1981, this 924 GTR was first delivered to Richard Lloyd/GTI Engineering, sponsored by the world-famous camera manufacturer CANON as one of 17 924 GTRs built. The car was driven by Richard Lloyd and racing legend Andy Rouse. Both drivers competed extremely successfully in the IMSA class and achieved the following results, among others:

  • 4-time class winner of seven races
  • Participation Monza
  • Participation 6hours Silverstone „not beeing classiefied“
  • Participation in Le MANS as class leader, retired after reaching the 6-hour mark.

Details II

In 2007, the car was imported from the USA to Europe and continued its history. A collector from NRW / Germany bought the car from a German racing car specialist and it is still in his possession today. In the meantime, further event participations followed, including "SPA", "Goodwood" and most recently "MOST" in 2019. The car has a valid FIA passport! More information about the history of the car can be found in our exposé.
