The Porsche 924 Carrera - evolution to excellence
By Roy Smith
Forewords by Norbert Singer, Jürgen Barth & Derek Bell.
The 924 Carrera was a homologation model built to qualify the 924 model to race in Group 4. One of the great supercars of the 1980s, the 924 Carrera was considered by many to have better handling characteristics than Porsche’s flagship 911. The book features interviews with many of those involved with the car at the time together with race stories, statistics, and a unique exposé of component failures during racing. More info.
