THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Development of Porsche's flagship GT car can be categorized as nothing less than progressive during the mid-1980s. By the time 1984 rolled around, a specialized long-wheelbase type 942 car had been presented by the company as a gift to Ferry Porsche for his 75th birthday. All-aluminum experimental cars were sent to compete in Daytona, Le Mans, Spa and Silverstone with Team Brumos placing 15th overall in a specialized lightweight car, 4th in class – they claim had it not been for sustained damages earlier in the race, a top 5 overall would have been assured. In 1983, the performance-focused S model arrived on the shores of North America. In modest fashion, the refreshed S externally wore discrete front and rear spoilers and simple yet elegant 16in flat disc wheels. The main change was under the hood. The M28 motor was bored out to 4.7 liters and now fed by an L-Jetronic unit while retaining the 16-valve layout. These continued developments and improvements, along with a tailwind of good economic drive resulted in Porsche's strongest sales quarter for the model.

Like the car gifted to Ms. Marianne Gravatte, offered here is one such example of the mid-production 928S. ES861952 completed final assembly in Stuttgart in March of 1984 finished in U3 Zinc Metallic over Burgundy leather, and had been delivered to Mr. Chris Papoutay of Manchester, NH in May of that year per the vehicle's history file. Since having been acquired by its present owner in early 2018, this 928 has been treated to a pampering most suited for a grand GT car. The Zinc paint was rehabbed to alleviate fading by Caliber Collision in Southern California, while SGS Independent Porsche Care of San Luis Obispo took on the mechanical service, all as recently as April 2019.

The 928 is a pop-culture icon of the 1980s. You've watched Risky Business, Scarface and Weird Science, now would be a good time to watch one of these arrive at your doorstep.
