Porsche - Porshe 924

The Porsche 924 was the first front engined rear wheel drive road car carrying the Porsche name, built from 1976 to 1988 as the replacement for the 914. The 924 had started off as a design excercise for VW, but it was shelved because VW went down the Audi route by developing their Polo, Golf and Scirocco. So Porsche later used their existing design work to build their new 924, to be built at VW's Audi plant. The Porsche 924 two litre engine was fuel injected, but due to the US emissions situation the US versions of the 924 were rather tame in performance, until the advent of the 924 Turbo! By 1988 Porsche decided to concentrate elsewhere and closed down production of not only the 924 but also their 944 model.

- Porsche 924 tyre size was originally 165R14 out of the factory, with H speed rating, fitted on a 5.5" width wheel rim. Blockley produces this high quality 165R14 tyre size with the original H (130mph / speed rating. Later models of 924 with the slightly wider 6" wheel widths were fitted with the 185/70R14 tyre size - although this 185/70VR15 will fit either wheel rim width. See full details of these Porsche 924 tyre options below:

- By 1979 the wheel width was increased to 6" and was now fitted with with a 185/70R14 tyre size, and Blockley also produces this 185/70VR14 size, with high speed rating and period correct look.

- Porsche 924 Turbo had tyre size 185/70VR15 with a V speed rating, from the begining of its production. Blockley produces this 185/70VR15 size.

All three of these high speed rated period correct tyre sizes are produced by Blockley, with the guarantee that if they are not the best tyres you've driven on, we will refund! See full details of any of these tyres below:
