‘I wanted to build cars that were not something to everyone, but meant everything to some’ – Ferdinand Porsche
The introduction of the Porsche 928 S in 1978 left the public confused, intended to replace the legendary 911. This complete 911 overhaul included a bulky V8 engine at the front, then suddenly no need to add extra weight in the front bumpers.
One of the striking features of the 928 is its exceptional weight distribution. The 928’s transmission is rear-mounted for better weight distribution, as is the transaxle. This has characteristic features of the 928: the well-known Weissach axle. This is the rear axle that gets its name from Porsche’s R&D centre. The result creates solid biting grip and stability when cornering. This makes the 928 S a mid-corner killer that lets you accelerate briskly with plenty of grip. Fun fact: The Weissach axle is a forerunner of today’s active steering. Porsche never ceases to amaze us anyway.
Above all, let’s not forget its looks. With its Porsche design and 1980s lines, the 928 S is a real eye-catcher of its time.
This example has had a neat working life in Germany. Made a strong impression over the years with its special colour combination. Weinrot leather interior with Meteor Metallic Exterior. No way, it has nothing to do with a German wine farmer who started transporting his red wine barrel and flew a bit enthusiastically over the bumps. Just a unique colour combination! On top of that, the M28/21 eight-cylinder delivers 310HP, mated to a manual transmission. Lots of fun!
