Another copy of Porsches grand tourer, the 928, has landed at MotoeXotica Classic Cars that we are selling for a local client. Were pleased to offer this 1984 Porsche 928S. Manufactured in July 1983 at Porsches Stuttgart, West Germany factory, this car left the line with the following options wider (21mm) rear axle track, rear package box, electrically adjustable front passenger seat, graduated tinted windshield and green side glass, high-fidelity sound system, alarm and without compressor, tire gauge, rear fog lamps and ID plate.
Finished in an exotic dark purple, the cars paint and trim are in satisfactory shape, with minor imperfections. The cars back window also features a rear defroster and wiper/washer. The 928s lights, including its pop-up headlights, are clear and intact.
The cars bodywork is in overall great condition, the engine bay is in satisfactory condition, the cargo area is in fair shape while the integrated bumpers are in decent order.
Under the hood is Porsches 4.7L 16-valve SOHC V-8 with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection and Bosch EZF ignition with dual distributors and the motor is backed by a four-speed automatic transmission and a 2.20:1 rear end. Driver convenience features include automatic climate control, power steering, power four-wheel disc brakes and cruise control. The A/C blows, but not cold, most likely in need of a charge.
This 928 rolls on Dunlop radials, size 225/45R17 in front and 255/40R17, and each tire is wrapped around a factory, five-spoke chrome wheel. The tires and wheels are in satisfactory order.
Inside, the cars black leather interior is in overall satisfactory shape, from the front buckets and the rear foldable demi-buckets to the carpet and headliner and driver seat shows wear. The factory four-spoke steering wheel faces the driver. The inner door panels and instrument panel echo the rest of the interiors theme. The center console and shift lever are also in decent order. The dash has some cracks under the cover. Rounding out the interior is a JVC AM/FM stereo with CD player.
From 1980 (1983 in North America) through 1986, front and rear spoilers were present on "S" models, rear spoilers being integrated into the hatch. The right rear tail light is currently inoperable.
The 928 featured a large, front-mounted and water-cooledV-8 enginedriving therear wheels Originallydisplacing4.5 L and featuring asingle overhead camshaft design, Porsche upgraded the engine from mechanical to electronicfuel injectionin 1980 for US models, although power remained the same. This design marked a major change in direction for Porsche (started with the introduction of thePorsche 924in 1976), whose cars had until then used only rear- or mid-mountedair-cooledflatengines with four or six cylinders.
Porsche utilized atransaxlein the 928 to help achieve 50/50 front/rear weight distribution, aiding the car's balance. Although it weighed more than the difficult-to-handle 911, its more neutral weight balance and higher power output gave it similar performance on the track. The 928 was regarded as the more relaxing car to drive at the time. It came with either a five-speeddog leg manual transmission, or aMercedes-Benz-derived automatic transmission, originally with three speeds, then with four-speed from 1983 in North America and 1984 in other markets. More than 80 percent had the automatic transmission. Exact percentage of manual gearbox cars for entire production run is believed to be between 15 and 20 percent.
The body, styled by Wolfgang Mbius under guidance of Anatole Lapine, was mainly galvanizedsteel, but the doors, front fenders, and hood werealuminumin order to make the car more lightweight. It had a substantialluggagearea accessed via a largehatchback. The newpolyurethaneelasticbumperswere integrated into the nose and tail and covered in body-coloredplastic; an unusual feature for the time that aided the car visually and reduced itsdrag. Porsche opted not to offer aconvertible variant but several aftermarket modifiers offered convertible conversions, most notably Carelli, based in Orange County, CA. The Carelli conversions were sold as complete cars, with the conversion doubling the price of the car. A reported 12 units were made.
The 928 qualified as a2+2, having two small seats in the rear. Both rear seats could be folded down to enlarge the luggage area, and both the front and rear seats had sun
