THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

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.

Though given the cosmetic modesty of Porsche's exterior design, it's surprising to see quite the opposite once inside. With most other manufacturers of sportscars battled for attention and flash, unostentatious bodies would go to cloak alternative materials such as a cord, tweed and houndstooth. A daring selection of interior collections in the 1970s showed us just how wild the Stuttgart 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 (car 6), chassis 9288200477 is an example of an early narrow-bodied 928 that wears Riley's midcentury velour psychedelia. Shrouded under largely original kaschmire beige paint and complete with its books, manuals, COA and service records, this matching numbers Porsche is superbly well-preserved.

Poised for concours entry at circuits across the country and bound to excite the discerning eye of rear-engine purists, every aspect of this water-cooled tourer can be described as excellent. For those who think different, this Porsche is as much a design icon, as it is an art masterpiece and an impressive sportscar.
