Unveiled at the Geneva Salon in 1977 and voted 'Car of the Year' for 1978, the 928 was intended as an upmarket replacement for the long-running 911, but in the event Porsche's rear-engined classic would outlive its younger sibling. The front-engined 928's stylish hatchback body used aluminium for the doors, bonnet, and front wings in the interests of weight saving, while ingenious impact-resistant 'bumpers' made of colour-matched plastic were incorporated in the nose and tail. The V8 engine - Porsche's first - displaced 4.5 litres and produced 234 bhp. 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. First introduced in the North American market for 1985, the latter's engine produced 320 bhp (288 horsepower in US specification) courtesy of twin-cam 16-valve cylinder heads and enlargement to 4.957 ccm. Porsche has not made anything like the 928 since its deletion in 1995, and today this underrated modern classic is increasingly seen as offering exceptional value for money.
Displacement, power, and top speed increased as production continued, with a 5.0-liter appearing in 1985, as well as revised brake and suspension components for the S3 model.
In all nearly 61.000 928s were built during the car's 17-year tenure. Even by today's standards, it is a competent, comfortable GT, and a well-sorted one will offer plenty of high-speed thrills over continental distances.

Delivered new to the USA, this S3 model has the 32-valve, 288 bhp, 5.0-litre engine and the rare and desirable manual transmission. The car was restored in 2015 and appears in generally very good condition. With the exception of the front wings and bonnet, which appear to have been repainted, the rest of the paintwork is original. The cam belts were changed in 2016 new shock absorbers fitted in 2017. Finished in black with matching interior, this beautiful modern classic is offered with a French Carte Grise.
