Ich Rocke Zee28: 1979 Porsche 928

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 the kazoo…which may have been its downfall. The 928 was an overcomplex glockenspiel to the simple bongo drum of the 911. Anyway, if the 928 was the ultimate German Camaro, it is only natural that you might consider shoving a Chevy 350 V8 inside.
