“This clean carfax stunning looking car is one out of only 3,007 Porsche 928S models exported to the US in 1984First Porsche production V-8 model and only coupe powered by a front-mounted V-8 engine4.7L 16-valve, SOHC V-8 engine with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injectionBosch EZF ignition with dual distributorsFour-speed automatic transmission with a 2.20 rear endAbsolutely stunning and immaculate black paint and body with tan and black interior.This pristine low mileage car is offered to us on consignment by a local collector with over 20 cars in his collection.This particular car has undergone an extensive and costly restoration turning it into an absolutely gorgeous car.The car's bodywork is in stunning condition with a concourse quality paint job, the interior has been restored to a very solid 7.5 out of 10. The engine has been meticulously maintained, no smoke, noises or leaks and runs extremely strong.” This car is a stunner, one of the best paint jobs you will find on any 928 listed on eBay, after which it went through a 20+ hour cut and polish treatment giving it the deepest shine possible. Interior has been restored, car runs great, everything works as it should, this is a show stopper of a car. Under the hood is Porsche's 4.7L 16-valve SOHC V-8 with Bosch L-Jetronic fuel injection and Bosch EZF ignition with dual distributors and the motor is backed by a four-speed automatic transmission and a 2.20:1 rear end. Driver convenience features include automatic climate control, power steering, power four-wheel disc brakes and cruise control. Everything including the AC works. From 1980 (1983 in North America) through 1986, front and rear spoilers were present on "S" models, rear spoilers being integrated into the hatch. The right rear tail light is currently inoperable. The 928 featured a large, front-mounted and water-cooled V-8 engine driving the rear wheels Originally displacing 4.5 L and featuring a single overhead camshaft design, Porsche upgraded the engine from mechanical to electronic fuel injection in 1980 for US models, although power remained the same. This design marked a major change in direction for Porsche (started with the introduction of the Porsche 924 in 1976), whose cars had until then used only rear- or mid-mounted air-cooled flat engines with four or six cylinders. Porsche utilized a transaxle in the 928 to help achieve 50/50 front/rear weight distribution, aiding the car's balance. Although it weighed more than the difficult-to-handle 911, its more neutral weight balance and higher power output gave it similar performance on the track. The 928 was regarded as the more relaxing car to drive at the time. It came with either a five-speed dog leg manual transmission, or a Mercedes-Benz-derived automatic transmission, originally with three speeds, then with four-speed from 1983 in North America and 1984 in other markets. More than 80 percent had the automatic transmission. Exact percentage of manual gearbox cars for entire production run is believed to be between 15 and 20 percent. The body, styled by Wolfgang Möbius under guidance of Anatole Lapine, was mainly galvanized steel, but the doors, front fenders, and hood were aluminum in order to make the car more lightweight. It had a substantial luggage area accessed via a large hatchback. The new polyurethane elastic bumpers were integrated into the nose and tail and covered in body-colored plastic; an unusual feature for the time that aided the car visually and reduced its drag. Porsche opted not to offer a convertible variant but several aftermarket modifiers offered convertible conversions, most notably Carelli, based in Orange County, CA. The Carelli conversions were sold as complete cars, with the conversion doubling the price of the car. A reported 12 units were made.
