    One of the most overlooked Porsche cars, and for good reason, being that it's slower and not as striking looking as cars like the 911, 928, 935, etc. That being said it's still quite cool. With the exception of the GTS and ClubSport, every trim of the 924 looked quite mature and as such, handsome.

    Cool. I have a soft spot for these. Saw my first one when one of my older cousins bought his 914(used) on Long Island, back in 1980. I liked the bubble hatch.

    Cool because it has a Porsche badge and even if it's the least expensive one, they can be a lot of fun.

    Spawned a legion of imitators, some of which were a lot cooler (the RX-7 FC comes to mind). Usually, that would be uncool, but I like this one just enough that I’m going to give it a decent cool.

    I've never been a fan of this car. I don't know what it is, I just don't rate this a performance car. I do like Porsches but the 924 is nothing special when you consider the other amazing vehicles that they've produced. Uncool.

    Cool Porsche, albeit slightly reminiscent of a Renault Fuego.

    Just about old enough to be a low cool.

    This, well, I guess it's just me, but, I love these Porsches (Porschi?). A nice departure from there typical mid/rear engine designs and wholly 80s in style. These and the 944 are my favorite Porsche model.

    It's actually a point of contention even in German what the correct plural of Porsche should be but in English it is definitely Porsches.

    924? Definitely Cool

    The regular model is pretty ugly and uncool, but the Carrera GT model is a low cool.
