Interested in what surely qualifies as one of the weirdest


out there? Well, we’ve got a treat for you. Let us introduce the


924 DP


. If you’ve seen one before, count yourself in the minority, because there were only a few of these shooting brake conversions built by Porsche tuner DP Motorsport back in the day — three if you believe

this listing

, or nine if you take the word of various

other reports

we found. This one happens to be for sale, listed for a cool £30,000, or $38,226.

The base car is a 1976

Porsche 924

, but was converted to DP Cargo spec in 1986. To accomplish the look, DP Motorsport grafted on the rear roof section of a

Volkswagen Passat

for a completely flat roof loading area. Proportionally, it’s a bit weird but so, so intriguing. One could call it the predecessor to the



Panamera Gran Turismo

as the first wagon-esque Porsche. According to the listing, this particular DP Cargo is the only one without the widebody 944 bodywork. It looks clean this way, but the widebody does give it a meaner stance.

DP Motorsport

didn’t just give it an appearance makeover, though. The powertrain was upgraded to full 924


spec. Even with the extra power, the 2.0-liter still only made 170 horses. Similar to other photos we were able to scrounge up on these rare cars, it has a massive exhaust tip. Presumably, it makes a fair bit of noise. This car does come from the same guys that took the overall victory at

Le Mans

in 1979 with the Kremer K3.

The 924 you’re looking at here has been living its life in Stockholm, Sweden its whole life, and received a bit of TLC as of late. That said, any car with the 924 Turbo powertrain is a bit of a gamble when it comes to reliability. Previous owners appear to have driven this one a fair amount, as it has 79,638 miles on the clock. We doubt many people will want to squeeze into the back, but it’s a legitimate five-seater instead of a 2+2 now. There is significantly more space for all your baggage when you take your Porsche shooting brake on holiday, too.

Ultimately, someone might

buy this car

because it’s special and weird. Porsche 924s, even of the Turbo variety, are not worth anything close to this price. DP Motorsport is not a company to dismiss as a lame


tuner, though — that makes this particular car even more special.
