Porsche 928S 4.7 Manual. 71,000 miles For Sale (1979)

I have owned this car for the last 12 years, and after much deliberation, have decided to sell due to lack of use. I bought the car from its third owner with 57.000 miles on the clock in 2005. It was a very clean car with a mostly Porsche service history. It came with its book pack and loads of old receipts and MOTs. The car's interior was immaculate and was in the perfect trim specification for me: black leather dash and bolsters with blue/black pascha inserts. The car is also without sunroof, spoilers or side strips, so is the purest of the 928 shapes, which was what I wanted, having had an S4 and a few S2s previously. However, as the car was an original 4.5 automatic, it was left wanting on the performance front, but as the car was so clean, it was worth buying on condition. After several years of occasional use, I decided to upgrade the car to a manual gearbox and upgrade the engine from 4.5 to 4.7, with upgraded cams and valves. This took the car to 300bhp from the original 240bhp, which made a big difference. Other work done included new discs and pads all around, uprated suspension dampers to 928 GT bilsteins. This maintains a smooth ride, but takes away some of the floatiness of the original 1970s dampers. THe teledials were refurbished and a set of Toyo R1R fast road / track tyres fitted. A new clutch slave and master cylinder were fitted, along with fresh brake fluid. I also purchased new gear linkages from 928motorsport.com in the US, to tighten up the gear change. For those of you who know the original "dog leg" gearbox, some may think of it as more "dog" than "leg".. With the new linkages, the throw and accuracy is improved a lot. The car was then sent of for some paint, as it had flattened off in places and there were a few scratches. The front and rear bumpers were removed, along with all trim and rear side windows. New rubbers and bumper trims were purchased and the car reassembled with all the nuts and bolts from the bumpers covered with lots of grease (just in case they ever need to come off again). The wheel arches and sills were also waxoyled for good measure. Today, the car presents very well. I have taken lots of pictures (please email for more). The car was MOT'd in April with no issues, and drives without fault. Last year I had a custom stainless steel exhaust system fitted from the downpipes back. This includes an enclosed X-pipe at the front, with dual straight through pipes back with two resonators halfway down the car and another two at the back. This provides unencumbered gas flow to the benefit of performance, but is not boomy at all at cruising speeds (one of the prerequisites of the build). It is also looks stock with the two pipe outlet mounted to exit at the side of the rear bumper. The car has never wanted for anything and today has still only covered 71,000 miles with all MOTs and receipts for work done. The majority of the work had been carried out by Paul Anderson, who knows the car well (and I believe still has the original auto box, if you wanted to return it to stock), so can give you an opinion on its condition and my approach to ownership. As it stands today, there are a few scratches and blemishes that I would get done if I were keeping the car, but rather than do them now, I wanted to present the car as is, which I believe gives a more honest view of the car's inherent condition. You can then decide what you would like to do with the car. The car has just had a small service. It runs Mobil 1, and has great oil pressure. The air conditioning is working, but needs the gas topped up (it wasn't done last year). This I can do before sale, if you want to be sure all is well. Please do get in touch if you would like to come and view the car and talk things through. I am a huge fan of 928s (hence 12 years of ownership), and am very fond of this particular car. I hope it sells to a good home.
