Porsche 924 Carrera GT - exciting but still undervalued?

There are great cars, everybody knows and others that are almost forgotten. One of the second kind is the Porsche 924 Carrera GT, built around 1980 on the basis of the "people Porsche" 924 that was quite far from being really exciting. But by adding 85 hp, widening the body and optimizing suspensions, brakes and interior the 924 became a seriour sports car, and in GTS and GTR disguise a proper race car even. Only 406 GTs, plus 78 GTS/GTRs were built, that's a very small number. So you would think these cars fetch high prices. Well at least the GTs don't . So if you are looking for a cool car to drive and hope to get a decent return on your investment this is certainly not the worst car to buy. And according to period tests it was really great to drive and with less than 7 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h quite quick. Go for a white one, if you find one, as this was the racing color of that time. At least myself, I have it on my list of cars to potentially buy in the near future.
