I was going to call it 70s green over grey…but Inari Silver with Onyx Metallic just seems more fancy. And fancy is what you’d expect from a turbocharged Porsche with a NACA duct on the hood…but the Porsche 924 Turbo isn’t an expensive car when crossing the auction block nowadays, particularly in comparison to the 911 or anything with more initials behind its badge. Find this 1980 Porsche 924 Turbo bidding for $1,500 in Twinsburg, OH via Pcarmarket.com (which is not a urologists car marketplace like I first assumed…it is for Porsche people).
I wish I could tell you that I’ve got some magic crystal ball that’ll tell me what makes/models are going to see serious appreciation in the next decade or two…because I would never have guessed that 80s Porsche 911s, 60s Ford Broncos or 90s Toyota Supras would trade for the coin they get these days…But […]

The Porsche 924 Turbo was the answer to the question that… wait…what’s this another 924 Turbo in the span of a week, these are piles of junk — hey, you leave the 931 alone, it had the coolest hood you could buy in 1980. Hey, there Mr Porsche, you are forgetting about the Z28 Camaro’s […]
