924 CARRERA GT prices?

Anybody know pricing or available cars for sale? Were these ever US spec cars?? Odd car that I am not even sure why I want depending on current pricing.

Thanks

You should probably be able to find one for 35-40K plus shipping to US and taxes. They were never officially imported and there are only a handful actually in the states.

A good replica could be built on a 931 chassis for around 15K. However if I where gonna go the replica route I'd build a GTS tribute on a 924S chassis and swap in a 951 engine and transmission.

I personally wouldn't want to buy a real one unless I was planning on mothballing it as an investment. They're just too darn rare and expensive to be driven around on a regular basis.

There are some listings here,

They can be purchased for 35-40, I agree with that. But I think that $15k put into a $2500 car is a complete waste of money. A real 924Carrera GT will only go up in value.
15K into a 924 will get you a $3500 924. Another thing 35k is not a lot of money for a limited production Porsche, its the 911RS version of the 924, and RS's are going for 300K these days.

Yes and no. If you are looking for the 'look' and not the expense, then a CGT replica is the way to go. I'm currently building one of these for a track-day only car. Not interested in maintaining any historical accuracy, as I have removed the interior of the car, including the tar stuff. I needed the CGT kit for the looks and weight reduction, and to use early offset cookie cutters. The 931 I'm using is a Euro, sunroof delete, and no rear side hideous blinkers.

And, on the other hand, those that are looking for more of a CGT tribute car, the 931 is still a decent platform for the build. Matching interior specs might be unobtainable, but, red or black on black with leather sport seats and decent carpet would work. I don't think 15k is even in the ballpark for a build like this. I say it's a lot cheaper.

I think a solid CGT replica, body and paint done right, suspension upgrades and engine mods, plus FMIC pushing 250hp would get you quite a bit more than $3500 in the used market. $7500 is more likely, maybe a bit more.

Of course that will be less then what you put into it, but creating a replica is always a losing proposition money wise, be it a 911, 951 or 924. And yes depending on your DIY skills you could get away with less than 15K but it seems a very rare thing for projects to cost LESS than estimated. 15K for a done right, on budget build.

Having said that I'm betting the OPs longing for a 924CGT has been a bit tempered considering he could get a decent 930 for the same price.

No no more 930's right now. I am on a mission to go through a list of cars I always wanted. I am not a find it and keep it kind of person.

The problem is I am currently living in CA and if there were no US versions unless someone else has gone through the CA headache for me I am onto my next one on the list.

If someone knows one in the States send me a PM and you never know. I buy a lot of cars.

I am also in Calif and have been a long time fan of the 924GT. The short answer: SMOG.

I only have seen one for sale locally. That was about 7 years ago and it was registered out of state. That ended my interest.

Good luck but I doubt you will find one. They weren't worth enough to validate the cost of making one legal here.
