The Turbo version of the 924, which was available as of MY 1979, bridged the performance gap between the 924 and the 911 SC.
The body of the 924 Turbo was based on the 924. In the front section, it differed from the standard model through various air openings: - Vertical air slots in the front apron to supply air to the brakes and the oil cooler - Four air openings between the headlights, as well as a NACA air opening on the right in the bonnet for aeration and ventilation of the engine compartment. The 924 Turbo also featured a black rear spoiler on the rear lid. The aluminium wheels with spoke design were secured with five wheel nuts (like the standard 924 model) instead of four.
The supercharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder in-line engine of the 924 Turbo initially developed 170 hp. In MY 1981, the efficiency of the engine was improved and power output was increased to 177 hp.
