They say it's a 924 and I see some of the features, but it looks more like a 944.

it's a 924 Carrera GT - the version of the 924 raced at Le Mans in 81 and 82... the later version (Carrera GTP) used an all-Porsche engine, an engine that would later morph into the 944's... so in essence, the 924 Carrera GTP is more 944 than 924... I'm not sure if that one is a REAL Carrera GT, but it looks pretty good.

Yea, it says "replica" so that makes it a pretty, but ultimately not very valuable car. Not worth the kind of $$$ they're asking for it IMHO. Kind of like kit Cobras - they look awfully nice but ultimately the discussion among anyone serious gets around to "is it a kit or is it original" - the difference being doubling or in some cases tripling (or more) the value for an original - many tens of thousands of $$$.

That's a lot of Del Taco!

I'd love to know what an ORIGINAL LeMans 924 would be worth. . . Yikes!

Car price includes the excessive socialist Euro taxes. Read the text. Probably less than $5,000 for just the car.

If you want a replica get a 924S and have at it.

I had mine built by Straton Motorsports (407) 629-1911) in Winter Park, Florida!!
MO30 turbo bars, yellow adj. Konis, 4-point cage and this next weekend the completly rebuilt trans. goes in along with the TORQUE-BIAS LSD.
I can return some pics of my car to anyone that sends me their e-mail address.

What kind of taxes? Import taxes?
It´s not so expensive here to change a car documentation.

3. Skull symbol similar to NAZI symbol as your logo
4. You like WW2 GERMAN Panzors tanks
5. You like cool and aggressive like pirate symbols too.

This forum is like a rollercoaster! A very fast, unpredictable, unsafe rollercoaster.

2. You bark a few GERMAN words -> I saw few ones here doing
the same,USA people....maybe german spies?

3. Skull symbol similar to NAZI symbol as your logo ->Let´s say it as "similar to an old tank division"

4. You like WW2 GERMAN Panzors tanks -> What the heck,I luv military! Panzer,Abrams,Leopard....planes,submarines...We are men after all!

5. You like cool and aggressive like pirate symbols too. -> We look like aggressive sometimes...just for fun.Everybody here knows i´m gentle and polite,and good person.And modest,of course.

So,with my attorney here,i can say loudly that any like to nazi is pure casualty.I´m with the right,freedom,no oppresion or assasination side.

So,with a new rollercoaster turn...Did you know Spain is the third car manufacturer country in the world,after france and germany?
Interesting,I read it today.
