Penned by Wolfgang Möbius and released in 1978 to critical acclaim, the Type 928 was Porsche’s first foray into super-modern GT production and it landed them European “Car of the Year”. Something another sports-car hasn’t achieved since.
Porsche designed the 928 as a replacement for the aging 911.
With unrivalled levels of refinement, luxury, technology, ground scorching V8 performance and futuristic styling the 928 was and still is one of the best driving and most sought after Porsche’s today.
The launch of the 928 S in 1982 saw the engine increased to 4.7 litre’s, power raised to 300hp, a new front and rear aero kit and side protection strips whilst still retaining the highly sought-after egg-shaped rear of the original car.
The MY 1984 saw additional improvements with a new 4-Speed Automatic Transmission, front separate oil cooler, a new fuel management system for unleaded vehicles, electric hatch releases, central locking from the console and cast 16” “tele-dial” wheels.
Delivered new by John Newell Porsche Centre in April 1984 and finished in Guards Red with Black Leather Interior, this example has been extremely well maintained by its owners throughout the years. Fitted with Automatic Transmission, Passenger Side Power Mirror, Automatic Cruise Control, ideal for getting the most out of this sporting GT package, it is a truly usable modern classic.
Inside, the two front occupants are accommodated well with low-slung buckets that hug and support with a variety of power adjustments, there is ample luggage space and a cool feature is the gauge cluster and the steering column move in tandem to suit all driver sizes- later imitated by the Nissan 300ZX.
Maintained with zero expense spared through Porsche Centres and Porsche specialists, with the last service less than 300kms ago, this 928 S purrs, the drive is well balanced and agile with mountains of torque- absolutely on the button.
Accompanying the car are the original service and owner manual booklets as well as a detailed folio of all modern service works, two keys and even the original dealer fitted radio.
With prices of the right 928’s increasing steadily at home and abroad, now is a great time to own, experience and invest in one of Porsche’s finest
