Auto Transport for Porsche 924 The first appearance of the Porsche 924 took place in November 1975 at the harbor of La Grande Motte, Camargue in the South Of France. The 924 proved to be a success that took Porsche out of the red and also produced a steady inflow of cash. This allowed Porsche to continue building and developing the 911. Later, the 924 was replaced by the 944 in 1982 in the United States, but was produced until 1985 in the rest of the world. The Porsche 924 was an automobile produced by Porsche AG of Germany from 1976 to 1988. This 2 door coupe replaced the 914 as the company's entry-level model, and was the car that eventually retired the 912. It was the first Porsche model that was powered by a water-cooled, front-mounted engine.

The front-engine, rear wheel drive arrangement was normal for most other automakers, but it was quite unusual for Porsche. They had before only used mid or rear-mounted engines. For the 1986 to 1988 model years, the car was made with the engine from the 944 model and thus became the Porsche 924S. The 924 was at first meant to be a Volkswagen's flagship car. Volkswagen had commissioned Porsche to design the car. However, due to growing concern over the oil crisis, Volkswagen put the project on hold, and eventually dropped it entirely after their decision to move forward with the Volkswagen Scirocco model instead. Porsche, who itself needed a model to replace the 914, made a quick deal with Volkswagen, and agreed to buy the design for a hunk of change. It turns out they paid $10 million less than what Volkswagen paid Porsche to design it. This deal really only turned out well for Porsche as they had the car, the design and all the sales.
