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, 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 928 'S' with 4.6-litre engine arrived and then in 1986 the model was further revised and restyled, becoming the 928 'S4'. Its engine producing 320bhp courtesy of twin-cam, 16-valve cylinder heads and enlargement to 4,957cc, the 'S4' enjoyed a welcome top speed boost to over 160mph. Today this underrated modern classic is increasingly seen as offering exceptional value for money.
Handsomely finished in silver with contrasting Oxblood leather interior, this automatic transmission 928 S4 was delivered new in Europe and purchased by the current vendor at an auction in the USA earlier this year. Notable features include a Moonroof, air conditioning, new dashboard, and body kit bumpers front and rear. The current odometer reading is circa 81,000 kilometres (approximately 50,300 miles). It should be noted that one of the exhaust manifold gaskets needs replacing.
