1980 Porsche 928
1980 Porsche 928
Last year, as the second-generation Porsche Panamera began arriving in dealer showrooms, its spiritual predecessor, the Porsche 928, celebrated its 40th anniversary. The 928 is a unique car that was in many ways significantly ahead of its time. Even today, it invokes many oohs and aaahs when one rolls through town. And for many, it served as a poster child for many people's dream car, particularly for those who grew up in the 1980s.
One can ooooh and ahhhh with this model as well as it has all the right stuff that was put into one of these front engine Porsches…automatic transmission and a water cooled V8 that pumps out 220HP. For the enthusiast that needs a bit roomier car than a Carrera can offer, as well as the front engine aspect, call now!
From its smooth rolling headlight nose to the iconic rounded rear, this car is draped in a classic German silver repaint. A chin spoiler as well as a rear spoiler in menacing black, this sporty “hatchback” if you will still has great curb appeal and 1980's lines. An integrated matching silver plastic yet absorbent front bumper and two black rubber crash bumpers on back, it had to conform with US standards. Standard Porsche wheel covers are on all four corners.
Sporty black leather buckets grab you upon entering the early '80's space age cockpit. 2+2 rear seats cram in behind the buckets and leave a long empty storage area under the greenhouse glass of the hatchback. Power windows, and power locks are installed, as well as an aftermarket stereo/CD player. A modular stylish instrument panel/dash is fronted by the air bag steering wheel, in front of the driver. Headliner appears in very nice condition.
Topping out at 140MPH this water cooled V8 coupled to an automatic 3-speed transmission, makes driving it a breeze...all be it a stiff one as this car will do 0-60 in 8.5 seconds.
Excepting for some rust through on the spare tire compartment bracket, underside is rust free. The Porsche 928 was one of the earliest production cars to utilize aluminum throughout its construction. Along with the weight reduction, aluminum also means the Porsche 928 is resistant to rust. Additionally, rust-resistant galvanized steel was employed for the floor pans, roof, and rear quarter panels.
The 928's futuristic design and status as a luxury vehicle for the eccentric jet set garnered it a fair share of screen time. It was the star car in several classic big screen hits of the 1980s, including “Weird Science,” “Risky Business,” and “Scarface,” which is also one of the reasons why the Porsche 928 became an icon and an enthusiast's dream.
