Porsche was commissioned by VW to produce the project known internally as EA435, purpose being to produce an inexpensive sports car that could be sold to the masses. With the looming oil crisis and economic downturn, VW pulled the plug and sold the rights back to Porsche which became the 924 and saw production from 1976 to 1988. This new model became the much needed revenue stream to continue to develop and improve the flagship 911.

In 1977 a select number of 924's were designated to be the first limited edition (M426), The Championship Edition or The Martini Racing Edition. This distinction was to honor Porsche with its dominance in the LeMans, World Championship of Sports Cars, World Championship of Makes and the US Trans Am Championship races - Porsche won them all in 1976. With the Martini Racing Edition, Porsche finished 3000 of these vehicles in the same exact way with the Grand Prix white exterior, light alloy wheels, performance suspension with front and rear sway bars, red-white-blue Martini Rossi pinstripes, two tone interior color pattern with blue piping and Martini racing stripes on headrests, and a plaque mounted on center console commemorating the World Championship of Makes victories. Martini 924's are very difficult to find now and the package looks pretty mild compared with later production models. Of all the variants with the four-speed Audi gearbox, this was the one to have.

This two owner 924 is in very nice condition inside and out with ultra-low miles. Car is in remarkable condition for being 37 years old and the paint retains a great shine and finish. Interior of the vehicle shows great with carpet in very nice shape and seats in near perfect condition. Car was owned by the first owner up until 2008 where it was sold for the first time and cared for with care until recently when we acquired the car. Vehicle has the badge on the center console, factory right wheels and spare, owner's manual, sales literature, shop manual and a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Car has been cared for and serviced routinely and retains almost all factory features. This is a true time capsule and one that will continue to appreciate as the Porsche brand sees monstrous year over year gains.
