Porsche 924

After Porsche created the 912 and the 914 as a lower cost alternative to the 911, it wasn't until the 924 came along in 1974 that they saw real success. It was different for a Porsche, with styling that looked very different than a 911, complete with a front mounted water-cooled engine.

The 924 could reach a top speed of 125mph and set the stage for the 944 that was to succeed it.  1988 was the last year Porsche produced the 924.
