Autobahn Ready: 1983 Porsche 928S

The Porsche 928 used a V8 up front mated to a transaxle in a comprehensibly modern design that was decidedly non-911 and very much a luxury grand tourer. From the very beginning, the 928 was designed to slaughter the 911. It had a bigger engine, better weight distribution, wider wheel/tires, better driving position, and technology out of the kazoo…which may have been its downfall. The 928 was an overcomplex glockenspiel to the simple harp of the 911, and the 928 went into the history books while the 911 continues its on-road domination to this day.
