It was a derivative of the 100LS engine family, I believe. That whole engine
line was later sold to AMC.
<<did Audi and/or VW share any engine designs with Chrysler? >>
The original (they weren't actually very original, but ...) Omni and Horizon
hatchbacks used a 1.7L version of the VW 827 engine family; aka the
Golf/Rabbit/Jetta engine family of that time period. I think that chrysler
bought the manual gearboxes from VW as well.
The 924 was also built by Audi at its Neckarsulm factory.
