Lot 126 - 1986 Porsche 928 S2
|Odometer reading||72,099 miles|
|Estimate||£16,000 - £20,000|
The 928 series of top-of-the-line motorcars represented a huge departure for the Stuttgart firm. The emphasis was more on refinement and comfort rather than flat-out performance as illustrated by the 911. Power came from the front through a V8, water-cooled engine displacing a hefty 4.5 litres. The body, styled by Wolfgang Möbius, was mainly galvanized steel, but the doors, front wing, front bumpers, and bonnet were made of aluminium to save weight. Interestingly, the pop-up headlights, for which this model is well-known for were based on another equally famous sportscar, the Lamborghini Miura. The original 928 was upgraded in 1986 most notably with ABS and an engine displacement increase to 4.7 litres transforming power output to 310bhp.
Earlier this year, GP Customs spent some time on the interior including the Pasha tombstone seats, armrests, centre console and steering wheel to the tune of over £1,600. The car has been repainted at some point in recent years and the quality is good. Invoices can be found in history folder for additional works stretching back and this clean example will be offered at auction with a fresh MoT test certificate, a light service and the original Porsche owner’s pack.
