Professionally prepared to recreate the original ‘works’ 924 Turbo rally cars now residing in the Sinsheim museum. Complete with its FIA/HTP, Logbook and FIVA Identity Card.


A fantastic and very rare opportunity to own a competition car that fits in so well in today's strong historic rally world. This beautifully constructed 1979 Porsche 924 Turbo FIA Historic Rally Car was accurately built as an homage to the original ‘works’ rally cars now residing in the Sinsheim museum. The build emphasis was on accuracy but some concessions were made to modern materials in the interest of safety and, of course, it's a race car and needs to be competitive. Finished to a very high standard and the attention to detail is impressive. 

The engine work was completed by an ex-Porsche ‘works’ mechanic who worked on the original cars back in 1980, and the build specification is in line with the original Porsche build with Bilstein shock absorbers front & rear, Bilstein road springs front & rear, alloy sump shield, encased period copy fuel tank in boot area, stainless steel exhaust, internal fuel lines, Brembo brake linings, uprated organic clutch, twin brake master cylinders, hydraulic “umbrella” handbrake, glass fibre bonnet, glass fibre period copy wheel arch extensions, Perspex rear side windows, Perspex tailgate window, Fuchs alloys, dog-leg ‘straight-cut’ gearbox (spare). There is an extensive spares package.

Since the build was completed, the car has twice been entered into the Monte Carlo Historique rally with ex-works Porsche legend, Jürgen Barth, and his original co-driver, Roland Kussmaul, recreating their entries in the ‘works’ cars in 1979, 1980 & 1981.

The car has an Historic Technical Passport valid in 'Racing & Hill Climb & Rally' to 31st December 2028, an MSA Stage Rally Logbook, a FIVA Identity Card, and a UK V5C document ready for transfer or export.

This is a fantastic opportunity to take ownership of a beautifully constructed rally car eligible to compete in FIA Historic Rallies such as the Tour De Corse, Modeno Cento Ore, Monte Carlo Historic, etc.
