1987 Porsche 924S Baja Rally Car Is A Multi-Colored One-Off

The Porsche 911 Safari is one of the most iconic vehicles from the Stuttgart manufacturer’s stable but to anyone without a seven or eight-figure bank account, is completely unattainable. Fortunately, we have stumbled across a more affordable alternative in the form of a 1987 Porsche 924S prepped for rallying.

The classic German sports car, currently up for sale on Bring A Trailer, has undergone a series of comprehensive modifications to make it unlike any other 924S on earth. It may not have the heritage of a 911 Safari but it certainly looks the part.

According to the listing, the car was partially repainted in its original Guards Red by the seller and then adorned with a number of white and gold vinyl accents. In addition, the 924S includes the front nose and black hood of a 924 Turbo and front and rear bumpers which have been drilled out.

As for the rally-inspired parts, they start with 15-inch Braid Fullrace TR wheels wrapped in 215/75 BFGoodrich KO2 tires. There is also a custom suspension system, a Yakima roof rack and basket, a custom tube frame front nudge bar, RotopaX fuel jugs and mounts, a Warn winch, mud flaps, skid plates, Hella 500 rally LED lights, and a CB radio antenna.

Inside, the seller has equipped the car with a 944 short shift kit, a Momo Monte Carlo steering wheel, Lloys rubber floor mats, a Garmin GPS system, and an auxiliary switch panel with USB ports. Powering the car is a 2.5-liter inline-four cylinder engine pumping out 150 hp and mated to a five-speed manual transmission with a Traction Products limited-slip differential, new timing belt, clutch kit, drive belt, engine mounts, lower crank seal, and crank sensor position sensor.

At the time of writing, the highest bid was sitting at $2,250 with seven days left in the online auction.
