OK, this came up not far from me and it's intriguing. It's listed as a 1979 (with title) and has some Carrera GT -like bits but the owner doesn't know anything about it.

The hood scoop is on the wrong side, there's no intercooler, and the body looks more like a 944 (rear flares are molded to body vs bolted on).

gonna need a vin for that one. looks like a heavily modified 79. or perhaps somebody actually installed a 2.0 into a 944. it looks like the fuel pump blockoff on the 931 head is actually cast over..... is this some weird rare factory car? what injection were they using? this is quite the mystery.

It’s a 931 engine with what looks like a manifold for carbs?
The vented nose is also 931..

There's just so much on this car that doesn't make sense...

944 body
1979 title
Carrera GT hood scoop (on the wrong side)
Recaro seats

It's for sale near me and only $1300, but I think I'm likely to pass unless someone here thinks it's worth anything. I'd like to have some of the bits but I don't think he's wanting to part it out yet.

FYI, I should have a new video about my 931 restoration sometime this week. New carpet has just arrived and I'm anxious to get it going!

That sounds like a TON of fun...but I've got to sell a couple of cars first. My 931 will be up for sale in the next month or so, looks like we'll be moving across country and I've got to pare down to 3 cars.

Agree with above, there is a lot going on here:
-944 body, at least the front fenders and rear panel.
-931 front nose
-924 NA engine (base on alternator location) with 931 head, this result in a very low compression ratio.
-modified to run carb

Somebody build a WTB 924 GTS using the wrong platform, once again; happen all the time.

The 931 nose panel hold some value as well as the 931 head (depending on condition).

It's a 1980 924 turbo, as far as condition and options, it's best just to watch the videos. I'll put a link to the playlist here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLukxB8bYuv7oLTVln6h0HqZLrWXi1n50X

Let me know if you have any questions or things you'd like to see specifically.
