Hi, I'm new from Japan.
I bought a 1979 Porsche 924 last month.
It's nice car.

Those wheels are pretty cool. Do you know what they are? You should post a photo over in Rasta's official wheel thread.

Thanks.
I think no RHD 924 had imported through official importer in Japan.
Most Porsches are LHD in Japan.
Because LHD is a status symbol like "I'm driving foreign car ",
expensive import cars are mostly LHD.

Hello! I'm a brand new 1981 Porsche 924 Turbo owner. Ever since I learned to drive, I have wanted a 924. I always told myself it was impractical, so I never bothered to save for one. After some recent thinking, I decided that "you only live once!" I'm excited to embark upon this journey and am looking forward to the fun ahead.

giving everybody some thanks off the bat. i'm pretty sure i'll be getting help from some, if not all of you, within the relative quickness. My first time owning a 924, in fact first german car all together so honestly don't have a clue as to what i'm getting myself into.

@ SaxJazz12

Nice looking car, Dude!

Get rid of that cheapo fog-light underneath the bumper - the toofah has built-in ones in the rear light cluster.

And what's the deal with the Honda badge under the number plate?

Hey all,
I can't really claim to be new, but have finally got some time with the new job so my 924 is due for some attention. Hopefully there are some pictures here of my pride and joy, '78 924. It has the flares front and rear, running 265/50/15 tyres on the rear. A custom retrimmed interior, using the original porsche black trim.
