Porsche created the factory 924 D production (DP) to compete in the United States SCCA championship series. The program was a success as the 924 DP won the championship in 1980 and 1981 before rule changes made them ineligible to compete further and dominate the series.
The 924 DP cars were known internally as the 933 and only 16 chassis were produced, making this one of the rarest cars Porsche ever made. They were unable to be sold as completed cars so they arrived in 3 large boxes and had to be assembled after arriving in the United States.
This is car number 14 and it is presented in factory correct condition, with a multitude of original factory race components and modifications intact. This particular car was first owned by Bob Holbert who began assembly. It was later sold to Vasek Polak. The car ended up in cold storage until 2012, when it was recovered and completely restored in Germany.
The 924 DP was designed during a litany of period factory tricks, and the end result is far removed from the street going 924.
Factory modifications include lightweight fiberglass components, a roll cage and a lightened chassis with Plexiglas hatch and windows, full coil-over suspension, mechanical fuel injection, side exhaust, dry sump oil system, snail shell transmission with factory LSD, 935 race seat and harness, a full gauge package including 10K tachometer and three piece magnesium race wheels.
