Footnotes

  • 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 234bhp. 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 over 160mph. The UK launch price was £46,534. 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.

    This automatic transmission 928 S4 was supplied new in the UK and registered in Northern Ireland from 1990 to 1998, since when it has been registered in mainland UK. The car comes with full Porsche and independent specialist service history consisting of the service booklet (16 stamps), sundry invoices and a quantity of expired MoT certificates. The present recorded mileage is 112,500. Restored over the last two years, the car is described as in generally very good condition and offered with the aforementioned service history, current road fund licence, MoT to 27th September 2013 and Swansea V5 document. Porsche 911 Turbo wheels are the only notified deviation from factory specification.
