Please offer your 928 Porsche im based in Marbella Spain
The Porsche 928 is a luxury grand tourer produced by Porsche AG of Germany from 1978 to 1995. Originally intended to replace the company’s iconic 911, the 928 combined the power, poise, and handling of a sports car with the refinement, comfort, and equipment of a luxury saloon. Porsche executives believed such a flagship would have wider appeal than the compact, quirky and sometimes difficult 911.
The 928 has the distinction of being the company’s first production V8 powered model and the only coupé powered by a front-mounted V8 engine.
1978-79 The first couple years the 928s were almost hand built cars. The quality in many areas was later reduced in favor of higher production numbers in an attempt to capture market share. The features that distinguish the early years are simpler electronics and the CIS fuel injection system. This is a very simple, reliable and responsive injection system that sacrifices fuel economy for performance. A higher performance CIS system was retained on the EURO model until 1983. Selling price estimation $28.000 USD
1980-83 The 1980 was the first full production model. The injection system was changed to an electronic system that increased fuel economy at the expense of performance. The engine size remained the original 4.5 liter but was increased in 1983 to 4.7 liters. The door locking system was changed from vacuum to electric and a factory alarm system was added as an option. The percentage of cars made with automatics increased and the with the larger engine in 1983 the four speed automatic was introduced. Where the early cars offered the sun roof, right side mirror and power seats as options, most all of the U.S. models after 1980 had these options as standard equipment. Finding that the injection molding of dashes and other interior components had a high flaw rate, Porsche covered the rejects with leather and started offering an all leather interior. The ‘S’ model had a small tail fin. Selling price estimation $38.850 USD
1984-86 – S2 The euro version was equipped with a L-Jetronic injection and electric airflow sensor. The S2 reference was never used by Porsche Germany but came mainly from journalists. In the UK Porsche issued the 928s2 model with decal on the rear.
1985-86 – S3 The lack of overwhelming success caused Porsche to redesign the car in 1985. The engine size was increased to 5 liter and 32 valves. The injection system was changed to a state of the art very sophisticated electronic system (L-H Jetronic) that monitors all aspects of the engine including timing, quality of the gas and habits of the driver. Six way sport seats with a narrower seat back for better rear and side vision were added. The manual transmission was improved for better shifting. In 1986 anti lock brakes were added and mid year in 1986 (starting with VIN # 1000) improved multi piston brakes were installed.
1987-91 – S4 Again Porsche extended the redesign to many more facets of the car creating the S4 model. Major body style changes were implemented with new front and rear bumpers and lights that added six inches to the length of the car modernizing the look. A larger rear spoiler, wider rear rims and tires were added. Internally the engine was redesigned with better access for service and a better torque curve. More electronics were added with features like memory seats and mirrors, electronic gauges and electric cooling fans. Selling price estimation $69.000 USD up to $73.000 USD
1988-89 – CS (club sport) and SE (sport equipment, UK only) were produced in only very limited numbers. The CS was a lighter and sportier version of the S4 having weight reduction, different seats, GT style wheels, sport suspension, and the latter also has a modified engine and exhaust, close ratio gearbox, and LSD. The SE had a few extra luxury options that were deleted in the CS.
1988 – GTE (Gran Tourismo Executive) was intended to be released, but actually one was ever built. It was intended to become the next generation, and just one exists in Johannesburg. It rated approx 360 Hp. Here’s a document about this GTE: 928gte.jpg
1989-92 – GT The GT had increased horse power, wider rear wheels, sport suspension and brakes, electronic limited slip differential , a tire pressure warning system and only came with the 5 speed manual. The S4 and GT models were made concurrently. Selling price estimation $74.500 USD up to $76.000 USD
1992-95 – GTS – The GTS had increased engine displacement of 5.4 liters and increased horse power. Very few cars were produced in the last few years of production and the price was very high. Selling price estimation $80.920 USD
Porsche 942 The Porsche 942 was a special edition of Porsche 928, made as a gift to Ferry Porsche on his 80th birthday.
