You can use the cap from the later 924 just doesn't look the same but gets you out of trouble.

I believe they're the same as several late-70s VWs and available from aftermarket suppliers. Motorad or Stant part 46132 are what I'm coming up with. It looks like in the US at least, the cap changed around 1980 - maybe that's when the evaporative emissions system came in? Anyway, no need to track down the OE Porsche cap: I'd see if that Stant part number means anything to your local parts store, or order one online.

There are aftermarket ones available in black (they are the same as some VW's) some wouldn't look out of place on an early car
