The 928 combines the power, poise, and handling of a sports car with the refinement, comfort, and equipment of a luxury Grand Tourer.
Launched in Geneva in 1977 and voted Car of the Year for 1978, the front-engined 928's stylish hatchback body featured aluminium doors, bonnet and front wings in the interests of weight saving, while ingenious impact resistant 'bumpers' made of colour matched plastic were incorporated into the nose and tail.
The V8 engine, Porsche's first, displaced 4.5 litres and produced 234bhp.
This is not a restoration, but an example of how a car should be looked after. The condition of this Series 1 928 is a credit to all its previous, and meticulous, owners. First delivered on 1st May 1982 it was kept and cared for by the same owner for several decades, being looked after by the local Porsche Dealer. It then passed through a couple of owners before ending up in another car enthusiast’s collection.
The current owner bought the car approximately two years ago and has continued to keep it as pristine as you see in the pictures. Always garaged, he has enjoyed it on high days and holidays, his only regret being that it is now for sale.
During his ownership, because he likes his cars to be perfect and trouble-free, he engaged the services of George Morrison of Glasgow, a well-known Porsche specialist, to thoroughly go through the electrical system to eliminate any possible gremlins whilst also having the timing belt changed, fully serviced, and thoroughly checked over.
The only thing this car needs now is a new owner…everything else is immaculate, both inside and out, and ready to enjoy.
The V5c, original Driver’s Manual and service book are all present, together with a comprehensive and reassuring quantity of service invoices and MOT certificates going back through the years.
There is also a Porsche Classic recognition document and 2 sets of keys. The car comes with an MOT through Summer 2021.
The Navy and Silver leather interior just looks amazing and belies its age of nearly 40 years. It’s as clean and welcoming as it could be, beautifully finished off with Navy carpeting and floor mats.
Needless to say, everything works as it should and there is the benefit of a Pioneer Flip Screen Stereo that enables Bluetooth phone connection, Sat Nav and Carplay. New Pioneer speakers have also been fitted to provide superb clarity and sound.
Cruise control and Air Conditioning are both in working order and the dashboard and binnacle are in excellent shape with no warping or cracking anywhere.
The ample boot area houses the space-saver spare wheel and is similarly nicely presented and carpeted.
The rare Zinc Silver Metallic paintwork and body is not only in incredible condition, but it also really shows off the very stunning clean lines of the Porsche 928.
The pop-up headlights work as they should and all the rubber door seals etc. are in great shape.
Wheels are the correct ‘tele-dial’ design and recently new Dunlop Sport tyres are fitted all round.
As with all the other aspects of this 928, this car is in absolutely near perfect condition and the mechanics have been just as well looked after by its careful owners.
Everything that has needed doing at any time has just been done and anything not working correctly has also been addressed. A recent full service - changing of the all-important timing belt, coupled with the service history and provenance of this car, plus the way it looks and drives of course, should make this a great car to own and drive.
It’s no surprise that it starts, goes, drives and stops exactly as it was designed to do.
To find a Series 1 Porsche 928 in such an original and pristine condition is most certainly a rarity these days.
A well looked after and properly maintained example with a full history and documentation is always going to be top of every would-be 928-enthusiast list.
Presented in such a fabulous colour, condition and the fact that it’s a Porsche 928, it’s hard to find a reason not to seize this opportunity.
Porsche. There is no substitute.
