Convert 924 to 924s?

Is it possible to convert a 924 into a 924s? Halfway through the inspection of my car the claims adjuster says oh! the computer just beeped we passed $3600!

I assume that Porsche made more than trivial mods to the 924 body to mount it to the 944. Or did they?

While I know it would be better to save the 924s running gear for a 944, I am not opposed to going retro for philosophical reasons. Actually, I am not opposed to my 17 y/o doing it for the next year as a life lesson!

Help me with info please!

Thanks

Is it possible

My 924s is going to be totaled by insurance.

Is it posible to put a 924 body on my 924s (944) drivetrain?

Or is it too much trouble?

Very big job. To start, the motor mount configuration is entirely different from the 924 to the S. The S mounts to the crossmember, the 924 mounts to the body. You could do the swap starting with a 931, as it's similar to the early 944 in many respects - suspension and brakes being big ones. It's a doable conversion but time, labor and money-intensive (can you weld?).

Go and have a look at www.924board.com and search this topic there. You may find more info. Pelican is great for 944 stuff.

HTH and good luck.

Shouldn't be that bad, but having now driven the later cars - I'd say take the total and go buy a complete 924S!! They drive so much better - and it's not like a 2L car is rare or anything...
