Seems like they would make a nice update if they could be fitted. . .

What's different about them? I've never looked that closely at them...

IIRC they sit further out...kindof aligned to the outer shell of the car....like most newer cars....but i fear it would look dumb on the 924...the quarters aligned with the body and the door windows inward by 15mm

if one would get 968 doors and quarters tho.....and 968 windscreen..then yes...i bet the 924 would look just as modern as the 968 does with some small mods...

hmm...speaking of that...i might do a photoshop study



oops...i might have found something...
is it me or there is a difference between the angle the quarter pannel windows go up?

EDIT: yep...there is a difference...just look at the red 44 and the silver/blue 68

Good eye, Morghen. The opening in the body does appear to be slightly different.

I think the 968 side mirrors would be a great upgrade for Shaggy! The flags just don't work so good with the nice curves of the narrow bodied 931.

Was the wing the same size?

I'm not seeing the difference in the angles Rasta and Morg are talking about. To me, the quarter glass - not the hatch appears to be more rounded.

the wing is fiberglass (so lighter) but is the same size.
