924 Carrera GT Identification

Identifying a genuine 924 Carrera GT is easy if you know what to look for. If all of the following items are present and correct, you are almost certainly looking at a genuine car. A good initial check is the chassis number, which for a 937 should have the letters 93ZBN7 in it. The clue here is the "7" after the "N", giving 937, which is the 924 GT's Porsche designation. The chassis number code applies to RHD 924 Carrera GTs, even though they are technically Porsche 938s. A Porsche 924 Turbo, designated by Porsche as the 931, will have a "1" after the "N". The GTS was built in Stuttgart rather than Neckarsulm, so it has an "S" in place of the "N" in the chassis number. The "7" is still there but the final numbers should only go up to 59.

The full list of checks, in rough order of priority taking into account importance and ease of location:

NB: Polyurethane (PU) - for those who are not sure - is a flexible plastic. If pressed it will deform quite easily but reform to its original shape. Replica panels are invariably made of glass fibre, which does not have the same flexibility. Porsche first used polyurethane fenders on the 928, and later for the wheel arch extensions on the 993 GT2. Some car makers use PU on modern car wings such as the Toyota Yaris and Renault Megane. If the brake ducts, yellow CGT sticker, or thinner rear hatch glass are missing, check for crash damage.

Pre-purchase inspection (PPI)

Any Porsche garage with front-engined experience will be able to check a 937's mechanical condition, but guaranteeing authenticity could be different without first-hand experience. John Robinson at Peter Morgan in the UK has experience of the 924 Carrera GT. Website
