Vehicle Description

Wouldn’t this Porsche 928 S be a real alternative to the classic 911?

This 928 S in its stunning garnet red paint has recently been brought back to its country of origin after 30 years in the US. The odometer displays a low unwarranted mileage of 48,100 mls. The V8 four-valve engine with a capacity of just short of 5 litres transfers a whopping amount of power to the rear axle and accelerates the car according to the advertising in under 7 seconds to 100 km/h.

The interior shows well and is in a very decent state of preservation, considering its age. Leather seats, door panels, dashboard and steering wheel are all held in a beautiful bordeaux. The car is equipped with cruise control, power windows and a Blaupunkt Monterey radio. The Porsche runs on the original “manhole cover” rims.

The paintwork is apparently largely original. Porsche had extended the warranty against rust from 7 to 10 years from model year 1986, and the 928 models benefit from this improved corrosion protection until today. The suspension will need to be addressed.

Now that the car has celebrated its 30th birthday, historic plates will be possible as of this year. Owner’s manual and maintenance booklet are available, as well as several repair and service receipts.


 

The other great Porsche

This was supposed to be the heir to the throne, successor to the forever-young 911, which in the late 1960s was thought to be way past its prime, with not much of a future ahead. Hence a radically different layout was favoured: The new top-of-the-range model was designed to be a luxury touring car, with a powerful watercooled V8 engine in the front, providing 176 kW (240 hp) from 4,5 litres of displacement, and a transaxle layout, which enabled a weight distribution of nearly 50/50 (front/rear).

The 928 debuted in 1977 at the Geneva Motor show. In 1978, it won the coveted “European Car of the Year” award, as the first sports car ever – a clear indication of just how advanced the 928 was both technically, as well as with regards to styling. Many Porsche enthusiasts, however, greeted the 928 with something ranging from suspicion to downright rejection, as the 911 continued to sell.

Nevertheless, the 928 became a success in its own right, with a construction period of no less than 18 years. Later models featured a 5.4 litre engine with up to 257 kW (350 hp). Only about 1/5 of all 928 came with a manual gearbox!
