924 transaxle architecture

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — Grenis @ 7:27 pm

The Porsche 924 is based on a front-engine/rear-gearbox architecture; On the photo below you can see the position of the engine, which is quite inclinated on the left side. This is why the 924 capot can be so low, despite the front-engine position.

The gearbox is linked to the motor via a “torque tube” guiding the power to the transmission.

La Porsche 924 est basée sur une architecture de type moteur avant / boîet arrière. Sur la vue éclatée ci-dessus, on peut voir la position du moteur très incliné à gauche. Ceci explique comment le capot de la 924 est si bas, malgrè la présence du moteur à l’avant.

La boîte de vitesse est reliée par un tube de force (“torque tube”), qui envoie la puissance vers le train arrière.
