Evolve Motors & Chicago Car Club are pleased to present this 1978 Porsche 928! This is a car we're very excited about. It's not very often you come across a first-year 928. With the bulbous, spoiler-free rear end, dogleg five speed manual transmission, sunroof-delete, and excellent silver over pinstripe color combo, this is certainly a special car. We love the bullet-like shape of these early cars, it's a very clean and sleek design. The car gets attention everywhere it goes, whether that be from enthusiasts who recognize it as an early Euro, or bystanders who are struck by the car's unique shape. Exterior: The car wears a respray of it's original Z2 Silber Metallic. The finish is nice, but isn't without a few imperfections. Blemishes include a light scuff on the front lower driver door crease, a couple touched-up small scratches on the driver door, a mark on the rear bumper from where the previous owner had stuck a Porsche crest sticker, and a bit of a rash around the key holes on the doors and at the top corner of the passenger side tail light. Rubber window trim isn't in great shape, and the rear quarter window trim shows some fading. Of course, as you can see in the photos, there are plenty of good things going for the car as well. It's a non-sunroof car, which we really like. It adds to the clean, uninterrupted lines of the car. Aside from the aforementioned blemishes, the silver paint shows very, very well. Rock chipping is really only present on the black trim around the windshield. Original Phone Dial wheels are in nice shape, with no curb rash and just some slight weathering. The body is in excellent shape, with no dents or dings. This car retains its original singular side mirror look, which only adds to the bullet-like shape of the car. Black front spoiler is in excellent shape, with no cracks or damage. Interior: Pinstripe interior is a beautiful thing, and looks great against the silver exterior. Seats are in very nice condition, with just a couple small tears on the upper outside bolster of the driver's seat. Pinstripe centers on the front seats are in great shape, but do show a bit of age by way of a very slight green hue. Rear seats and door panels are excellent. Rear seats fold down in these early cars, opening up space for a massive cargo carrying capacity. Original Blaupunkt stereo is in place, though not currently functional. Heat and front and rear defrost are functional, air conditioning blows but is not cold. Front and rear wipers work, as do all lights (inside and out) and signals. Power windows are functional, though the button has to be pushed down with some force. Dash is in very nice shape; there's a crack at the top right corner of the glovebox, but the forward-most portion of the dash is free of any cracks. There are a lot of cool features to the interior of these cars; the whole gauge cluster moves up and down, not just the steering wheel, and the door panels have a very clever fold-out storage area. All gauges are functional. The car will come with a set of 928S floor mats, though not original to the car. The sill plate on the driver's side has been colored in gold, while the passenger side sill plate remains the correct silver. Under the Car/Hood: The underbody is in very nice condition, with no through rot. Rust is limited to surface rust at the corner of the battery tray, nothing of concern. Floors and rockers are in excellent shape. The car retains its original 4.5L V8 and 5spd manual transmission, with just over 67,000 miles. The car runs and drives quite well, with just a couple tendencies to be aware of. On a cold start, the car needs to idle for about 30 seconds before you can rev it out without any hesitation or studder. Once you let the car warm up a bit, all is well and good. The car pulls hard, and is significantly quicker with the manual gearbox vs an automatic. The car shifts nicely and the clutch is in good health, but it does take a bit of finessing to smoothly downshift into 2nd at speed. Handling is excellent, and the car takes on speedbumps without a fuss. The car tracks and brakes straight, and the brakes reel it in nicely. Exhaust note is fantastic both at idle and at speed. Tires are in excellent shape, but the DOT number indicates they are from 2003. While documentation is limited on the car, the previous owner performed a timing belt and water pump service 6,000 miles ago, when he bought the car in 2003. Overall, this is a nice, driver-level first year 5spd 928 that is ready to be enjoyed. Between the silver/pinstripe combo, non-sunroof and singular side mirror look, 5spd manual transmission, and low mileage, this early Euro 928 is a special and rare car. Enjoy seat time while watching the value climb on up. For additional info, please feel free to reach out to Jake at .
