Porsche 928 Additional Information
Registered in 1984 this 928 S is a rare 5 speed manual transmission example, finished in grey/brown metallic paint with Linen cloth seats. Featuring air conditioning, 16" alloy wheels with Porsche crests, 6-way electric front seats, electric windows and mirrors. The 928 was the first production V8 powered car for Porsche and remains the only front mounted V8 model produced by the company. Introduced at the 1977 Geneva motor show, it was intended to supersede the iconic rear engine 911, introducing a more refined and poised sports car with the comfort of a GT car. It remained in production until 1995 & boasted many interesting design cues, for example it was the first vehicle in which the instrument cluster would move with the adjustable steering wheel giving optimum instrument visibility to the driver. Within its construction of galvanised steel there also included a large amount of aluminium, used for the doors, bonnet & front wings, saving overall weight. In those wings were the integrated pop-up headlamps, based on the units found on the Lamborghini Miura. The 928 also featured the ‘Weissach Axle’, which is a rear-wheel steering system providing passive rear-wheel steering that increases the cars stability under braking during turning. Quite an advanced machine for 1977! This original UK registered car has only 3 owners from new & has been residing in the sunny climes of Spain since 2001, being repatriated this year. Recently subject to a complete mechanical overhaul and rebuild with an extensive list of all new genuine parts, including air flow meter, water pump, clutch & steering rack, all documented and carried out by the leading Porsche 928 specialist in the UK. With a large history file containing service booklet, owner manuals and many receipts from Porsche main dealers for works carried out during its life in the UK & Spain, it has always clearly been very well cared for. A superb, rare & appreciating manual Porsche 928S.
