    This is a well-considered article. It did make me reflect on my bias against the 924. I much prefer the 944 looks, but significantly I was not aware of a sketchy reputation for the early 944 engines. DT is right that I would not want to adopt a money pit. Maybe I will take a closer (and less jaded) look at the next 924 that comes up in my area.

    I've thought about buying a 924S. Classic early body style, but with a 944 engine. Makes a bit more power stock, and should have more aftermarket options if you feel the need.

      No real aftermarket options on the 924S (short of a V8 swap). If you mean suspension/brakes/wheels then you need a 944 with wider fenders. The 924S is a fine car stock, if you want to upgrade it you would be very unhappy you didn't get a 944 to start with.

    The 924 made between 95 and 110 hp when new from its Audi engine. The one you want is the 924S which made 150 hp from a Porsche made engine.
