For Sale: 1983 Porsche 928 in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1983 Porsche 928 S - 4.6L V8 - Automatic Transmission - Red Over Black Interior - Lots of Recent Maintenance - 103k Miles Hitting showrooms at the start of the era of big hair, baggy clothing, bright colors, and a growing theme of excess, the 928 was a super GT car that had unique styling, as well as the ability to impress in the luxury and performance departments. Add an extra layer of Aqua Net, and get your Ray Bans and string-back driving gloves out, the open road is calling. Despite all the exterior hues Porsche offered at the time, Guards Red seems to be the color that screams 80's Porsche. The 911, 924, 928, and 944 all look excellent wearing Guards Red. Guards Red over a black leather interior suits this 928 well. This car is a nice example of a 928 which offers the 928's smooth yet controversial styling, a luxurious leather interior, and a powerful V8. All items that the 928 cars are known for. We're happy to offer a well maintained example of a 928 that comes with service records for items such as brake system checks, wiring inspections and repair, brake system maintenance, cooling system maintenance, and new tires. It's all too important that 928's are well maintained, and this example has been well taken care of. The interesting shape of the 928 was a result of Porsche engineers being determined to design a sleek sports car that was able to slip through the wind with ease. The resulting car is definitely a unique vehicle that has curves in all the right places. This particular 928 features front and rear spoilers, smooth Porsche 7-slot alloy wheels, sunroof, fog lamps, and of course the familiar teardrop-shaped pop up headlights. Unmistakable Porsche stylized script and purposeful compartmentalized tail lights at the back of the car are a familiar sight for all other cars in the 928's wake. The Guards Red paint on the car still pops with color, and is in very nice condition, bar a few small stone chips at the front side of the hood. The spoiler at the rear, which on 928's commonly dry out and develop pin holes as they age, is in beautiful condition. Lenses at the front of the car are in great condition. Being at the front of a low slung car, and two of the lenses made of glass, cracked or pitted lenses in the bumper were a common area of concern. As you might expect from a GT car, the luxurious interior is a very comfortable place to be for passengers. Comfortable leather wrapped seats, plenty of storage cubbies, arm rests, and an excellent view through the windows are all available to occupants. The standard stereo in this car has been replaced by a Porsche enthusiast favorite, Blaupunkt stereo unit. The gauge cluster is easy to read, and the stylized 928 S logo on the horn pad of the steering wheel is retro cool. Rear seat passengers will need short legs to find a trip seated in the back seat comfortable, but Porsche stylists made sure that the accouterments available to them are top notch. Leather trim all around, rear HVAC vents, extra visors, leather wrapped arm rest, stereo speakers, and a storage cubby are all within reach of those shoehorned in the back seats. Mounted at the front of the car is a 4.6 Liter V8 mated to an automatic transmission. An engine at the front of the car was another oddity for Porsche at the time that the 928 hit showrooms. Mid and rear engine configurations were Porsche's specialty until the introduction of the 928. Despite the fact that another portion of the odd equation which makes up the 928 is that there were 8 cylinders in a V formation under the hood, Porsche produced a powerful GT car. This car could burn up the Autobahn without batting an eye. As they should be, 928's are a joy to drive, with plenty of power underfoot, and luxurious interiors to relax in. The 928 is truly a luxury car. Porsche had some fun with advertising in the era of this 928, one ad said to think of the Porsche 928 as a Mercedes with a little
