Much can be said about the then highly advanced Porsche 928. What many people don't know is that the 928 was supposed to succeed the legendary 911 series. This (thankfully) did not become a reality. Although the 928 was a relatively successful model, the traditional 911 also remained a sought-after model and remained in production. The 928 was produced from 1978 onwards. The example we are offering is an early 78' model and was delivered new by Pon Netherlands on 25 January 1979.

All body parts fit together well, the car is rust free and the paintwork is good. The interior is also in particularly nice condition, with no cracks in the dashboard. The engine compartment is dry and the car drives, shifts and brakes well. Most 928s come with an automatic transmission but this one is equipped with the coveted and faster manual ‘’Dogleg‘’ transmission. At the time, Porsche advertised the phrase ‘from 0 to 100 km/h and back to 0 in just 10 sec’ to indicate that both acceleration and braking power were above average. Porsche also described the 928 as three cars in one: a sports car with good performance, a comfortable, luxurious coupé and a purposeful, practical vehicle suitable for long distances and almost no maintenance. These words are nothing too much to say: in addition to excellent handling, the car is richly equipped with four seats, air conditioning, cruise control and electric windows and mirrors, among others. Included with the car are a sales brochure, technical specification, colour chart and price list with options available at the time. This example in the beautiful blue metallic colour with a hint of green is particularly well preserved and an addition to any collection. In recent years, the car has been in a collection and has therefore not been driven much, so a technical check-up is recommended.


General information about the Porsche 928
The Porsche 928 was introduced in 1977 as a luxury 2+2 GT car. Due to increasingly stringent safety requirements, it had to succeed the popular 911. It was the first Porsche with a V8 engine and the first Porsche available with an automatic transmission. The design was revolutionary and thanks to the powerful, water-cooled 4.5 -litre V8 engine with 240 hp, the car had an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.6 seconds and a top speed of 230 km/h. The focus was on lightweight construction: the engine is therefore built of aluminium, as are several body parts and the bumpers are plastic. Otherwise, everything is electric or pneumatic. That it is a technically complex vehicle is evident from the more than 1,000 plug connections and 3 kilometres of electrical wiring present in the car. In 1978, the 928 won the title of ‘Car of the Year’. The Porsche 928 is the only sports car ever to win this title! Consequently, sales figures were good. In 1995, production ceased and the 928 was succeeded by the Porsche 968. The 928 is now considered a true classic and has a group of loyal fans with even a Porsche 928 Club in the Netherlands.
