1979 924 Limited Edition Sebring '79 5-Speed

A great buy for a rare 924

Built to celebrate Porsche’s incredible racing success for the year in SCCA and IMSA Camel GT title, the 1979 924 Limited Edition Sebring ‘79 was “a very special 924, loaded with exciting extras tht set this one apart from the rest.” - (Porsche Marketing Department). The cars were painted in Guards Red and featured a Yellow, Black, and White racing stripe with Black alloy wheels. On the inside, the Black leather interior is highlighted by Plaid seat inserts and door cards.

This 1979 924 Limited Edition Sebring ‘79 5-speed is one of just 1,400 produced and shows 32,000 miles on the odometer. The Guards Red paint appears to be in good condition showing just some paint chipping in the gallery. The seller notes that the rear quarter panel was painted in 1981 and the car is void of the racing stripes and Sebring ‘79 decals.

On the inside, the interior appears to be in good condition with minimal wear throughout. Mechanically, the car has been well kept and comes with a stack of service receipts including a most recent service in 2023 consisting of repairing a fuel line, cleaning the intake system, rebuilding the fuel-distribution system, replacing the ignition control module and more. Overall, a nice example of a rare 924.

924s have average around $10,000 for the last few years with Limited Edition such as this Sebring ‘79 and Martini Editions getting about a $5,000+ bump depending on condition and mileage. Our Spotlight car sold at a final bid of $8,200, which was well-bought even had this been your standard 924. But to come away with a Sebring ‘79, congrats to the bidder.
