Porsche 924 S

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Drive-it Day Special The 50 Greatest Drives - Mur­ray Scul­lion

Why do peo­ple still lam­bast the Porsche 924 S for only hav­ing four-cylin­ders? They fail to re­alise that the 924 is one of the most in­tu­itive and sup­ple sports cars ever to wear the Porsche badge. It con­nects driver to road and the clout from the 2.5-litre straight-four is more than enough. It howls through the rev range and is so, so smooth – you could mis­take it for a six-pot. It’s punchy too – with peak torque de­liv­ered at just 3000rpm.
