BaT History (1 entry)

This 1979 Porsche 924 is one of 1,292 limited-edition Sebring ’79 models built to commemorate the manufacturer’s contemporary racing victories. The car is powered by a 2.0-liter inline-four paired with a five-speed manual transaxle and is finished in Guards Red over black leatherette and red-and-blue plaid cloth. Equipment includes 14″ eight-spoke alloy wheels, pop-up headlights, a removable sunroof, fog lights, a cassette stereo, and a heater. This 924 was purchased by the seller in September 2021 and is now offered with a Porsche Production Specifications certificate, the owner’s manual, and a clean Indiana title in the seller’s name.

The car left the factory finished in Guards Red and is said to have been repainted under previous ownership without Sebring edition-specific factory stripes and scripts. Equipment includes pop-up headlights, Hella fog lights, a removable sunroof, power-adjustable mirrors, an electric antenna, black front and rear bumperettes, and a single exhaust outlet. Work performed under previous ownership in 2021 reportedly included the replacement of the sunroof seals and latches, the door handle and side mirror gaskets, and a ceramic coating treatment. Delamination along the edges of the rear window can be seen in the photo gallery below.

The three-spoke steering wheel frames a 170-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and gauges for coolant temperature and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows 48k miles, approximately 400 of which were added under current ownership. The odometer was broken under prior ownership, and true mileage is unknown.
