First introduced to the world at the Geneva Salon in 1977, and subsequently voted European Car of the Year in 1978, the 928 was intended as a more refined replacement for the long-running 911. With the 928, Porsche had created a serious long distance Grand Tourer that could also tackle twisting country roads with ease. Thanks to an alloy V8 attached to a rear mounted gearbox and 50/50 weight distribution, the car felt planted and nimble with a vast amount of grip.
A five-speed transaxle gearbox or three-speed automatic were the transmission options. In 1979 the 928S with 4.6 litre engine arrived, and then in 1986 the model was further revised and restyled, becoming the 928 S4. Its engine producing 320bhp courtesy of twin-cam, 16-valve cylinder heads and enlargement to 4,957cc, the S4 enjoyed a welcome top speed boost to 260kph. Porsche has not made anything like the 928 since its deletion in 1995.
This stunning late S4 model must surely one of the best and certainly lowest mileage example available today. Showing a mere 32,500 kilometres from new, the 928 can only be described as being in concours condition, and as you would expect is offered with a full and complete service record with Porsche. The 928s are extremely capable GT cars and this is the nicest one we have seen.
