The Porsche made 924 series of cars had two new things for a Porsche made car - automatic transmission and a front-engine rear wheel drive for a road-going car. First produced in 1976, this car was brought out to replace the earlier Porsche 914 model. They became so popular, that they continued to be made for the next twelve years.
The Porsche 924 Carrera GTR racing variant with a 2.0 litre produced an astounding power of 375 hp. Weighing less than a ton i.e. 935 kg allowed the car to do 0-100 km/hr in less than 5 seconds and have a top speed of 300 km/hr. Porsche entered three of these cars for the first time in 1980 at the Le Mans and came up with excellent results.
During the 50th edition of the Le Mans held on 19-20 June, 1982, a Porsche 924 Carrera GTR sponsored by tyre maker B.F. Goodrich (now owned by Michelin) drivers Jim Busby & Harry Bundy (USA) and Frenchman Marcel Mignot drove this car. This team came first in the IMSA GTO category.
