The 928 is a sports coupé built in a special way. The front has a water-cooled aluminium V8, the gearbox is placed above the rear axle, this is called a transaxle and ensures a better weight distribution. The rear-wheel suspension is made in such a way that the rear wheels slightly steer along in fast bends. The bonnet, front wings and doors are made of aluminium. The body is entirely zinc-plated. The front, the rear and the sill protectors are made of plastic. Everything else is electric or pneumatic and the car features automatic climate control with air conditioning. In some cases, the entire interior is fitted with leather (option), which is also the case in this 928. This is a technically complex vehicle which is obvious from the more than 1000 plug connections and 3 kilometres of electrical wiring inside the car, unique at the time.
When Porsche brought this car to market in 1977, it was technically very advanced for that period, it was even meant to be the successor of the famous Porsche 911. Only 600 cars are still registered in the Netherlands, which means it’s quite a rarity on Dutch roads.
This is a Porsche 928 in very original condition, which is quite unique for these cars. The car has matching numbers and includes the original booklets and manuals.
The Porsche looks beautiful with its Signal Red paintwork (paint code 568). A new coat of paint was recently applied in the Netherlands. The entirely original interior is still in very neat condition. The bottom looks solid and the bottom plates still have the original coating, they are rust-free. The engine idles nicely at 900 rpm, the car shifts smoothly and powerfully through all gears and it brakes properly. In addition, the car is fitted with Porsche Turbo rims.
This Porsche 928 is a classic with a lot of potential, especially in the current Porsche market! The 928 S (with a 4.5L engine) is becoming rarer and more sought after. So don’t miss this opportunity to become the owner of this beautiful car.
