1981 Porsche 928 S ‘Competition’
Chassis no. WPOZZZ92ZBS840994
Engine no. M28/11-8210518
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.

Race prepared by Burgraft in Chimay, this Porsche 928S was previously owned and raced by ‘Jean Beurlys’ (Jean Blaton) the well known collector and competitor whose career in international sports car racing spanned several decades and included two top-three finishes at Le Mans. Used by Mr ‘Beurlys’ for circuit racing and hill climbing, the car features Porsche Turbo brakes, up-rated radiator and a transmission oil cooler, while the engine is said to produced 350bhp. Reported as in ‘excellent running condition’, the car is offered with service invoice (17.02.06) and Certificate of Conformity (issued March 2007).

Préparée pour la course par Burgraft à Chimay, cette Porsche 928S a été antérieurement la propriété de “ Jean Beurlys ” (Jean Blaton), le collectionneur et pilote bien connu dont la carrière au niveau international en catégorie sport s'est étendue sur plusieurs décennies avec deux classements dans les trois premiers au Mans. Utilisée par “ M. Beurlys ” dans des épreuves sur circuit et en côte, la voiture possède des freins de Porsche Turbo, un radiateur spécial et un refroidisseur d'huile de boîte, tandis que le moteur est réputé délivrer 350 ch. Décrite comme étant en excellent état de fonctionnement, la voiture est offerte avec une facture d'entretien (17. 02. 06) et son Certificat de Conformité (émis en mars 2007).
