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 saloon. The body, styled by Wolfgang Möbius under guidance of Anatole Lapine, was mainly of galvanised steel but the doors, bonnet and boot were made of aluminium to save weight. Polyurethane elastic bumpers were integrated into the nose and tail and covered in body-coloured plastic; an unusual feature for the time that was intended as both a styling feature and to reduce drag. In 1980, the 928S was introduced with a larger 4.7 litre engine and wider wheels and tyres, whilst in 1987, the engine displacement was further increased to 4957cc with the introduction of the now highly desirable 928 S4.
This well presented example showing circa 113,508 on the odometer is offered in good condition and is one of the most sought after models of this iconic ‘yuppie’ car of the 1980s. Superb to look at from every angle, the howl of its powerful five litre V8 mated to its transmission is a triumph of German engineering and exciting to drive both on country roads and relaxing on longer journeys. Recently the 928 has been serviced and has had an extensive respray and as such looks fantastic. The 928 has recently been treated to a service including a new cambelt and water pump as well as new torque bearings, and a fresh MoT. The history file contains various sundry invoices, MoT records and the current UK V5C registration document. Rare, desirable, and highly collectable!
