Porsche 928 S – V8 4.7 300 HP

Sorry, too late !

This incredible Porsche 928 is a 1983 S version developing 300 HP. It has the chassis number WP0ZZ92ZDS841188 and its engine is matching.

To date, it has only 234,830 km which is nothing for such a flagship. A complete overhaul has just been done in our workshop with belts, timing, water pump, fuel pump, spark plugs, oil change, etc. High performance and reliable, the 928 is a real endurance model! It will be given to its future purchaser with an approved value appraisal and its clean technical control.

In 1971, the study of a 2+2 high displacement coupé was started in Weissach. The specifications of the 928 are relatively simple: the future Porsche GT must be a clear improvement over the 911 in terms of comfort and ease of driving. The Porsche 928 made its debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1977. At the time, it was presented as the GT that would gradually eclipse the 911. Everything about it is amazing: its design first of all, its 4.5-liter V8 and its performance. Designed by Anatole Lapine at Porsche, the 928 has a real flying saucer look! According to Michael Mauer, design director at Porsche, “As a designer, Anatole Lapine never followed fashion but set timeless trends with his concepts”. It is true that the design of the 928 alone represents his personality and character. Round shapes and prominent fenders, the ship-like appearance is accentuated by its small lights and shiny flat rims characteristic of the first series. Inside, the comfortable seats are surprisingly designed in the typical Joe Colombo style of the 70’s, a unique style specific to the first series, and the dashboard innovates with a pivoting instrument panel with steering wheel adjustment: unheard of for the 911 accustomed porschist ! On the road, from the first tests in 1977, the car is unanimous, so much so that the following year, the Porsche 928 is elected car of the year!

An iconic design of the 80s!

In 1979, the oil crises are now far away and Porsche finally accedes to everyone’s request: to give more power to a GT car that lacks it to allow its chassis to fully show off. The 928 S is equipped with a V8 engine with a slightly larger displacement (4.7 liters) and develops 300 hp, with real GT performances since the 250 km/h top speed is reached. To improve aerodynamics, the models were equipped with a front spoiler and a rear spoiler. To combine on the same vehicle a refined comfort and the road qualities allowing to exploit its power without any restraint, a true success!
