Description

- Light Blue metallic with Pasha trim

- Replacement AlliSport radiator, new injectors

- Fuel system and brakes overhauled

Introduced at the 1977 Geneva Motor Show, the 928 was conceived (and priced) as the flagship of the Porsche range. A luxurious GT, it was styled in-house by American Tony Lapine as a replacement for the ageing 911. Ultimately, the newcomer failed to usurp its sibling despite becoming the only sports car ever to win the European Car of the Year title (1978). Built around a galvanised steel monocoque, the 2+2 made extensive use of aluminium for its wheels, doors, bonnet, transaxle housing, front suspension wishbones, rear suspension uprights, upper links and main cross member. Available with a choice of manual or automatic transmission the 928 was regarded as a crushingly capable Grand Tourer.

This manual transmission 928 has been fitted with a replacement AlliSport radiator and new injectors whilst both the fuel system and brakes have benefited from being overhauled. The vendor informs us it has covered a genuine c.68,000 miles and that it "runs well". The car is accompanied by its handbooks, service book and assorted invoices and will have a new MoT in time for the sale.
