The evolution of the Porsche 928 was very much like the 911 it was designed to supersede. Each year the 928 got a little faster, a little better, but changes were kept evolutionary instead of revolutionary. The sleek-in-the-front and
bulbous-in-the-rear design was penned by Wolfgang Möbius and was one of
the first cars
to offer a polyurethane front bumper that could survive US 5 mph impact standards. In 1987 Porsche introduced the S4 version of the 928, which was more of the same, just faster and a little better looking. Find this 1987 Porsche 928 S4 currently bidding for $565 with 5 days to go on eBay.
The 928 is one of those cars where you can buy a cheap example that’ll cost you lots of money to fix or an expensive version that has already been fixed up. You really don’t save anything when buying a cheap 928, unless you plan on some crazy engine swap…then it makes sense to start with one with a busted engine.
Many folks have shoved Chevy V8s up front over the years, but I’d suggest doing something nuts, like a turbo rotary or an EcoBoost inline-4. firstname.lastname@example.org
