The 924 GTP 002 has now safely arrived in the UK and is undergoing a thorough inspection. As you can see from the photos it certainly needs some work.
The restoration teams from each Centre have met at
The 924 GTP has now been reunited with its original 1980 engine. This development returns 924 GTP 002 to its ‘true’ pre-development testing condition as it would have been for the 1980 Le Mans race. In addition a new mould for the front end has been made to replicate the original nose. Damage to the floor pan has also been repaired and the shell has been stripped and cleaned in preparation for painting.
The body shell of the 924 GTP has now been completely restored and has been returned to
After a gruelling six months of hard work, 924 GTP 002 is back to its former lustre as it would have arrived at Le Mans in 1980. The car was revealed at the

*Data determined in accordance with the measurement method required by law. Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP), a more realistic test procedure to measure fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. Fuel economy and CO₂ emission figures are only intended as a means of comparing different types of vehicles tested under the same test cycle. New WLTP homologated vehicles are therefore not directly comparable with any vehicles tested under NEDC. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Extra features and accessories (attachments, tyre formats etc.) can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel consumption and CO₂ values. Additionally, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, electricity consumption, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
