The Porsche 928 was a sports-GT sold from 1978 to 1995. Originally intended to replace the iconic 911, the 928 attempted to combine the power, poise and handling of a sports car with the refinement, comfort and equipment of a luxury coupé creating what some Porsche executives thought would be a more appealing vehicle than the compact and quirky, yet sometimes difficult to handle, 911.

Originally registered by Rivervale Porsche in June 1985, this stunning S2 example of Porsche's V8 coupé- presented in metallic silver with black leather interior and red piping- was one of the last S2s built and had been factory upgraded with various S4 goodies including upgraded brakes to four piston Brembos and updated ABS with improved brake pad sensor wiring along with a superior dual-disk clutch.  The wheel offsets were made more versatile with ¾" spacers as well as improved front wheel bearings and a 2.20 rear differential- including updated differential drain/fill plugs-, giving the engine and drive-train less stress than earlier years. Other changes were made to the suspension points and the front suspension itself, alongside improved head design, flowing intake and thicker cylinder walls, This example is also sitting the S2 1.23" lower than earlier models. Additional changes incorporated improved synchromesh including reverse gear, simpler and more easily tuned fuel-injection and ignition control and higher lift/duration cams (the same as the GT, but with improved timing).

Cosmetic changes included revised floor pan, battery box and rear cross member and the 1986.5 model was seen as the ultimate incarnation of the classic body shape, dubbed the 'GTS' of the classic body style. Optional equipment also included recoil bumpers, limited-slip differential and widened track rear axle and sunroof all coupled with the extremely desirable manual gearbox.

Also complementing this coupé is a comprehensive and stamped service history including cambelt replacement alongside countless MoT test certificates, warranting the mileage at an impressive 54,121, equating to just 1,800 miles for every year of use. Recent work has included refurbishing the MAF sensor and oil seals as well as Porsche brake discs and pads and gas struts for the tailgate.

Having been owned by a Porsche enthusiast and club member, this car has entered and won many club events and in such a spec, is certainly a rare and desirable example. Only 893 manual 928s were ever produced for the UK market with a mere 410 manual S or S2 Models and it is thought just 25 remain in this S2 to S4 specification, with even fewer boasting the limited-slip differential and widened track as factory modifications. Offered for auction with a mountainous history file- which includes a fresh MoT test certificate and Service with Porsche Cardiff, it also has its original service and handbooks, tyre inflator, tools and Becker stereo. This 310bhp German sports coupé is certainly one for the collector and enthusiast and you would have to look long and hard to find an example as well looked after as this. Oh, and in case we didn't mention it, it also has a certificate of authenticity from Porsche UK just to give any prospective buyer added confidence.
