The Porsche 924 Turbo with a 2.0 litre supercharged engine was a car that was a refinement over the original 924. Launched in 1979, this new car model bridged the gap between the performance of the Porsche 924 and the Porsche 911 SC.
Though the body was the same as the original 924, a number of small changes were made that added to the overall performance of the car. A few examples are,
- Between the headlamps there are four slit openings for better cooling
- NACA scoop^ provided on the bonnet for efficient cooling
- aluminium wheels
- the provision of a rear spoiler provided allowed the drag coefficient to be further reduced from 0.36 to 0.33
Over 11,000 cars were produced until 1984.
^ an aircraft design (later implemented in racing cars) that was developed in the late forties by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), USA that allowed air intake faster without creating any extra air-drag
