1989 Porsche 928 S4 2-Door Coupe - Southern Car (Florida/Missouri) - Grand Prix White - New Burgundy Leather Interior - 5.0L/316hp V8 - Service History (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1989 Porsche 928 S4 on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of this vehicle due to website limitations.

The 928 has always been one of the most deceptively efficient, fast, and safe cars of all time. The fourth major update, the S4, is all of that and more. - Modern Motor, August 1989 With a top speed of 170 mph, ultimate autobahn cruiser was an accolade frequently rendered in favor of the Porsche 928 over its four major iterations in the course of the model's 17-year run (from 1978 launch through 1995). Partly with that grand touring use in mind, the majority of 928 cars came equipped with automatic transmissions. The S4, introduced in 1987, was the identification for the fourth design iteration of the model, arguably the most consequential. An updated 5-liter water-cooled V8 engine with new pistons, a new cylinder head with more aggressive camshafts and larger valves, and a 10.0:1 compression ratio produced 316 horsepower. This power news was accompanied by redesigned bodywork in both the front (four fixed driving lights in addition to the pop-up headlights) and rear of the car (a new fixed spoiler and re-styled taillights) and ensured Porsche-o-philes could easily identify the new model. Handling continued as a surprising 928 strength and was described as laser sharp by Road & Track at the time. Although the 928 cars languished for many years in the collector market, that lapse has ended with values showing excellent appreciation over just the past few years. Offered here is a well maintained 928 S4 in Porsche's very desirable Grand Prix white over burgundy. It has been primarily a southern car with prior ownership in Florida and Missouri. Something of a driver's 928, it was ordered with limited-slip differential. Its complete list of options from the factory-applied tag on the car is shown here: Paint: L908 �€" Grand Prix White Upholstery: YZ - Burgundy C02 �€" US Emissions 018 �€" Steering wheel with elevated hub 220 �€" LSD Limited Slip Differential 418 �€" Side protection mouldings 570 �€" Air conditioner also between rear seats 586 �€" Lumbar support, left seat 650 �€" Sun-moon-roof 691 �€" CD-radio Alpine Porsche CD-2 Beginning with its burgundy leather interior, this 928 S4 shows beautifully overall, with one exception. Its dash has suffered cracking and surface distortion, so there is a dash cover in place. This should not be taken as a sign of mistreatment or owner neglect as nearly all of the 924, 944, and 928 front-engine/transaxle Porsches of the eighties suffered a similar fate. The cause was a sandwiched material used by the factory that did not stand up at all well to sunlight over time. Unfortunately, by the time the deterioration was noticed, it was too late for even the most fastidious owner to effectively mitigate. As the remainder of this car's interior demonstrates, virtually all other surfaces were up to Porsche's traditional high standards, and kept that way by the car's owners over the years. The burgundy leather is in excellent condition with no rips or tears, door trim is complete and undamaged, instrumentation and center-console switchgear is unmarred, and even the carpeting beneath the rear hatch-glass is un-faded. The headliner is free of sagging and the factory sunroof operates as intended. A later-model Alpine audio head unit replaces the factory-supplied Alpine unit. Rear-seat passengers are treated to a separate air-conditioning supply. Grand Prix white is so valued by collectors in part because the color allows the other vis
