The Porsche 928
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 aluminum for the doors, hood and front fenders in the interests of weight saving, while ingenious impact-resistant bumpers made of color-matched plastic were incorporated in the nose and tail. The V8 engine - Porsche's first - displaced 4.5 liters and produced 234bhp. A five-speed transaxle gearbox or three-speed automatic were the transmission options. In 1979 the 928S arrived boasting a 4.6-liter, engine equipped with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, and then in 1986 the model was further revised and restyled, becoming the 928 S4.
The Motorcar Offered
This 928 was purchased new by Camille Cosby, wife of the great comedian Bill Cosby, and has remained within that family until acquisition by the current owner earlier this year. Complete with its original service book, this confirms that original registration in 1983 and charts maintenance in its early years.
Its timeless color scheme of gunmetal grey and rich burgundy leather interior easily belies its 30 years of age, while their condition are both within reasonable expectations of its low miles.
An entry level Porsche.
