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 160mph. The UK launch price was £46,534. Porsche has not made anything like the 928 since its deletion in 1995.
Delivered in 1979 this excellent 928 S4 finished in the desirable colour combination of Steel Grey with a burgundy and cream leather interior. The car comes complete with a comprehensive history file including bills and invoices of previous work carried out along with MOT certificates dating back to new, believed to have covered just over 49,000 miles from new the car is said to be in good working condition. This well presented 928 with a comprehensive history is certainly a fine example of its marque.
