SOTW: PORSCHE 924S
Finally, shed is back in a Porsche. It's no 911 but it's good enough for us.
Actually I didn’t remember much about any of that, but I do remember motoring writers up and down the country taking the piss out of the Porsche 924. It was the archetypal hairdresser’s car, the un-loved, underpowered, bastard lovechild of a failed relationship, a puny weakling with a VW engine at the wrong end. Not worthy to wear a Porsche badge, they said.
But I was a teenager at the time, and I didn’t give a monkeys about any of the reviews. One of my schoolmates had a fine looking mother, and crikey, did she look glamorous behind the wheel of her 924 S coupe.
Fast forward to 2009, and I’m not sure where a low-mileage 924S would fit into my life. A low-cost entry into the Porsche 924 Championships perhaps?
