Originally intended to replace Porsche's iconic 911, the 928 went into production in 1978 and was quickly acclaimed one of the worlds greatest GT's.
This 1984 928 has been garage kept and was owned by a well known and respected local Porsche Club member who recently passed. Over the last ten years, the car was driven little, though it was started often and allowed to run, keeping all systems operable. The car starts instantly and runs great. The AC is ice cold.
The car is finished in Platinum over Cocoa Brown leather. Paint is excellent with few scuffs, the interior of the car is fantastic. The cars leather is supple and soft as sheepskin seat covers (just removed and come with the car) have been protecting it for years. Carpet, door panels, dash, headliner and the balance of the interior are excellent. While detailing the car, I noticed that the right fender and right rear 1/4 panel may have been painted at some time during its 36 year life, though done well. A paint meter indicated paint only repair, no filler. There is NO rust in the car. It is rare to find a 928 in this condition, most have been neglected and are pretty rough.
As the car has just come out of hibernation there are some issues which should be addressed. 1) It is unknown as to when the last timing belt replacement was performed, but, I will assume at least 10 years ago. It should be done, it is not an inexpensive repair (about $2,000) 2) There is a slight brake pedal pulsation under light braking, indicting that the brake discs most likely have a high spot due to the car having not been driven. The correct repair will most likely require the replacements of the cars front brake pads and rotors, not a terribly expensive repair, particularly if you do your own work. 3) The transmission shifts a little firm, the 928 used a Mercedes-Benz automatic gearbox, transmission modulation pressure is adjustable. That and a quick service of the transmission should resolve that small issue. 4) The cars exhaust rattles a bit on initial cold start, most likely a heat shield rattle - slight alignment of the exhaust should resolve that. 5) Brake fluid and coolant systems should flushed as well and are inexpensive to do.
I am helping the family sell the car. I have listed the car at a very fair number, taking into consideration that the car will require the work listed above. All of the systems on the car function as designed. All lights and electrical systems function properly, sunroof works, AC blows ice old, windows function, central locking system functions, as does the radio.
Hagerty currently values the 1984 928 as follows:
#1 Concours $51,500
#2 Excellent $35,000
#3 Good $19,500
#4 Fair $7,100
The cars title is clean and clear and it is sold with its complete tool kit, books and service records. If you have ever considered a Porsche 928, this is a nice example to have a look at. Reasonable offers are considered, low ball offers ignored.
Please note: A complete set of PORSCHE factory shop manuals and a replacement dash (not an overlay) are available at an addition cost. Prices available on request.
