The Porsche 928 burst onto the scene in 1978 and became the first (and still only) sports car to win European car of the year award. The 928 was continually developed until reaching the S4 in 1987, which would stay in production until 1991. The 928 S4 is powered by a 5.0-litre V8 engine, producing 316bhp and 317 lb-ft of torque, which provides effortless acceleration and a top speed of 165mph. The 928 S4 was also one of the most technologically advanced cars of its time, with features such as ABS, airbags, and an advanced suspension system. Its timeless design, with its low profile and smooth lines, has aged exceedingly well and is still highly regarded by car enthusiasts across the globe.

This particular example began its life in Japan, which is far from a bad thing. Many will know that the cars being imported from Japan tend to find themselves in far better condition than their UK delivered siblings, due to the lack of salt on Japanese roads and their highly scrutinous MoT requirements. This car is no exception, the Slate Grey metallic paintwork still presents in superb order and the Linen leather interior is also in exceptional order. The odometer reading of 124,287km would translate to around 76,000 miles and the condition could easily pass as being far lower. The wheels look to still be in their factory finish too.

There is some evidence of servicing during the cars time in Japan, however without being an expert in the Japanese language, it is rather hard to translate. Since the cars arrival in the UK in 2016, it has been maintained properly, with evidence of four services in that time, including a £3,862 invoice in 2021 for work on a big engine overhaul including the all important cambelt service. The car comes to auction with a valid MoT until 2nd May 2024.

Our vendor has owned this car as part of his private collection and has now decided he needs to free up a space in his garage. The car will be missed, but since it hasn’t been getting as much use as intended, he has decided it is time to let someone else enjoy this excellent 928. What better way to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Porsche this year than with one of the models which helped to save the company?
