Porsche took a step in a radically different direction for the company with the introduction of the 928. It offered a more luxurious grand touring option to their sports car lineup, and suitable alternative should emissions and rear-engine regulations tighten even further. The model was sold side-by-side with 911 until 1995, offering a unique alternative for the driver looking for an arguably more sophisticated and refined Porsche.

9289201429 was completed on March 5, 1979 finished the stunning livery of Black over Cork Partial Leather upholstery with optional equipment including limited slip differential and electric exterior mirrors, along with the rarely seen 5-speed manual transmission. This 928, from the second year of production, remains remarkably original and preserved, with only 29,800 miles on the odometer. All paint and anodized trim is completely original, in excellent condition with complimenting "phone dial" alloy wheels. Its cabin is equally as impressive and pampered, with only mild fading evident in areas. The engine bay and undercarriage is in factory form and still exhibits all of its original stickers, underhood pad and cadmium plating. An extensive mechanical restoration was performed in 2007 (or only 300 miles ago) by a marque specialist, with accompanying invoices.

Importantly, the 928 is complete with original toolkit, jack, spare, plastic spare bag and gloves, keys, records, owner's manuals and Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. As the foremost influencer of all modern front-engine and water-cooled Porsche models, this early 928 presents a rare opportunity for the discerning collector or enthusiast to acquire a collector grade example, on a level of originality and cleanliness beyond others in today's marketplace. Now available for Worldwide purchase and delivery.

Recent rising interest in the front engine Porsche models makes this example a great find and represents excellent collectability! An opportunity no to be missed!
