The Porsche 928 was a sports-GT sold from 1978 to 1995 and was an immediate hit; the orders in the UK far outstripping demand. Originally intended to replace the company's 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 sedan to create, what some Porsche executives thought, would be a vehicle with wider appeal than the compact, quirky and sometimes difficult 911.
The 928 qualified as a 2+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 visors for occupants. Porsche's design and development efforts paid off during the 1978 European Car of the Year competition where the 928 won ahead of the BMW 7-series and the Ford Granada. The 928 is the only sports car so far to have won this competition, where the usual winners are mainstream hatchbacks and saloons from major European manufacturers. This is regarded as proof of how advanced the 928 was compared to its contemporaries.

Directly from an extensive private collection, this late edition 928 benefits from a full bare-metal re-paint whilst at the same time, having all electrical systems overhauled and the interior re-fitted to its current luxurious 1980's grand-touring style. Whilst the engine is thought to be slightly 'tappety', adjustment may be all that is required and it is presented with an MoT test certificate valid until September this year, this uber-retro classic has certainly been cherished and is competitively priced.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
