Vehicle Description

Airstream of Scottsdale is very proud to bring you this

1981 Porsche C928 
Carelli Convertible


In the spring of 1979, Porsche Audi of North America and Carelli International Corporation launched an aggressive effort to develop a special limited series 928 convertible. The model would eventually become known as the Carelli Design C928 Porsche Convertible.


The new C928 would wind-up sporting a variety of extensive modifications and upgrades. Among the most obvious was an extensive reconfiguration of the interior appointments, a redesign of the vehicle’s doors and the creation of a handsome new trunk for luggage, as a result of the vehicle’s new convertible top. The C928’s new interior featured lush Connelly leather hides out of England, a luxury only previously engaged by the automakers Rolls Royce and Jaguar. When in the down position, the new convertible top is skillfully stored entirely in its own concealed storage compartment, a feature relatively common by today’s standards but nearly unprecedented in the late 70’s and early 80’s.


This Porsche is mechanically stock, with a 4.5-liter V8 and an automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. Over the years, an aftermarket muffler, exhaust tip and factory Porsche switch to control the antenna have been installed. There are just 6,341 miles on this rare Porsche convertible! 

This car rides on a set premium Porsche chrome wheels wrapped in some Pirelli 225/50ZR16 Cinturato P7 Tires.
