THE PORSCHE 928

The 928 was for a different sort of individual. The then atypical Porsche combined a transmission, axle, and differential in one integrated assembly in the rear. The front-mounted type M28 single overhead camshaft, water-cooled V8 engine displaced 4.5 liters and featured a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system – and just as atypical from its rear-engined siblings, this configuration helped the new 'type 928' for 1977 achieve near 50/50 weight distribution. The car technically different from others on the road had the right to look different. Catching the attention of many including the likes of Stanley Kubrick and Steve Jobs, its lay-flat/pop-up headlamps (a nod to the Miura), flared wheel-arches and curvy flanks can easily be described as a marvel of midcentury design.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This classic 1st generation 928 was the 29th example made in the 1978 model-year production run and left the Porsche factory exactly as it appears today, with the GT bodywork finished in Silver Metallic over a black interior with era-evoking black/white 'Pasha' velour inserts. The new 928 featured the now-desirable 5-speed manual transaxle and was destined for the US market, but would later head up north to Canada, where it is now offered from the collection of a Canadian enthusiast with an eye for exceptionally original sportscars. A close inspection of the car reveals a very original and well-kept 928, retaining the original interior, most likely the original paint and many other factory finishes. Fit and finish is impressive, and the original iconic 'phone dial' alloy wheels remain on the car. Just 63,610 miles are recorded on the odometer at the time of cataloging, and the SOHC V8 engine out front remains the original matching-numbers unit.

Given the cosmetic modesty of Porsche's exterior design, a daring - now iconic - selection of interior collections in the 1970s showed us just how wild the Porsche design studio could be. Though no one seating surface is more synonymous with the era than the checkered flag inspired Pasha seating which in itself, is inspired by Op Artist Bridget Riley's 1961 Movement in Squares. Like the very first 928 and the '77 Road & Track press vehicle this car is an example of an early narrow-bodied 928 that wears Riley's midcentury velour psychedelia. This superbly well-preserved 928 is as much a design icon, as it is an art masterpiece and an impressive sportscar.

Saleroom notices

Please note, that this 928 is in fact just the 19th example made in 1978, and not the 29th as stated in the catalog.
