The Porsche 924 was initially developed between Volkswagen and
Porsche to replace the victorious 912 and 914. The 924 would become
the new level entry car for Porsche. It was designed using a front
engine and rear wheel drive layout, making it Porsche's first
road-going front engine production configuration. The 924 was
revealed in November of 1975, featuring a 4-cylinder normally
aspirated engine. Three years later, a turbocharged version was
introduced to the market, and it was an instant hit around the
In 1981, Porsche decided to enter Group 4 racing utilizing the 924
production model. The 924 Carrera GTS variant would be 330 pounds
lighter, with a lowered suspension and feature an upgraded engine
producing 210 HP, the first step into making the 924 a true race
Following this, Porsche took another step by creating 50 street
legal samples named the Carrera GTS. The car featured fixed
headlights, slightly wider wheel arches, and a lightweight hood
held in place with hood pins. 3 of these examples competed at the
1981 24 hours of Le Mans and finished in an amazing 6th, 12th, and
13th overall. With this successful recipe, Porsche created 15
examples of the Carrera GTS Club Sport, featuring a larger 2.0L
270HP engine and additional oil coolers, making it one of the
fastest production cars Porsche had ever built at the time.
This example was hand-built and completed on 11 February 1981 at
the Weissach facility, then shipped to Bob Hagestad Porsche-Audi in
Denver, Colorado. It was sold to its first owner, Dr. William
Jackson, an ophthalmologist and well-known Porsche collector from
Pine Cliff, Colorado, on 23 July 1982.
Known for his discerning eye and exceptional taste, Dr. Jackson was
one of the first American collectors to appreciate the significance
of early Porsche racing cars. At its height, Dr. Jackson's
collection included some of the most important examples of the
marque, from four-cam Spyders and rear-engine prototypes to
significant Turbo era 911s.
After 24 years in his personal collection, Dr. Jackson sold the
Carrera GTS to John Dixon at the Taj Ma Garaj in Dayton, Ohio in
August 2005. The vehicle was subsequently purchased out of that
collection in 2019 and entered the respected care of Garage 26.
Recently serviced in 2021, the car received new engine belts,
engine oil, spark plugs, etc.
Upon arriving at Canepa, every vehicle is treated to the "Canepa
Difference." This includes a complete mechanical inspection,
services as needed, and ultimately road tested by Bruce Canepa. A
concours level detail is part of the Canepa Difference, with
everything cleaned and detailed to a show level
finish-underbody/chassis, suspension, exterior finishes, trim, etc.
The front engine compartment, trunk, as well as the interior are
also cleaned, ensuring that the Carrera GTS is presented as though
it had just rolled onto the showroom floor. With the remaining step
being the exterior, the finish is polished and waxed to "as new"
This rare and very desirable 924 Carrera GTS "Club Sport" is
supplied with a tool kit, spare wheel, jack, factory literature,
dealer correspondence, COA, and a file of service receipts. With
its incredibly low mileage, this truly rare and exciting Porsche
collectible is not to be overlooked.
