By 1980 it was obvious that things in the automotive industry were getting better...although domestic offerings were still horribly overweight land yachts with suspension components borrowed from playground equipment...but the Germans (instead of trying to take over the world, again) were starting to figure out the automobile. Find this 1980 Porsche 924 offered for an undisclosed, but firm, price in Indianapolis, IN via craigslist. This post is part of DT's 2016 Birthday Celebration of 100 cars; enjoy the ride!
It would be a few years before rubber bumper fangs were entirely purged from new car showrooms, but at least the little German sport coupe offered fun handling, and decent power to weight ratio (110 horsepower and 2400 lbs). I'd save my money for a 924 Turbo, but for the Concours car on a budget (ConCoors? Can-o-coors?), this could be fun.
Yes! We made it to the 80s. Stay tuned!!
