Renegrenade Hi-Bread: 1980 Porsche 928

You’ve heard all the negative stuff on the internet about the Porsche 928.  It was faster backwards than forwards, it is the German Camaro, it is styled like a suppository, it is as reliable as Mariah Carey’s monitor… ENOUGH!  The 928 is a great car, and it only gets better when you put in some reliable domestic iron.  Find this 1980 Porsche 928 with Chevy V8 offered for $10,500 in SF Bay Area, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

This Moby Dick was built by the onwer to compete in the Silver State Classic Challenge, so it has a rollbar, external battery disconnect, Recaro racing seats, and is plumbed for NOS.  This looks like the perfect car for a suburban Los Angeles commute.

Under the hood sits a 350 cubic inch small block “crate” Chevy engine.  It is mated to the 5-speed Porsche transaxle via a Renegade hybrids adapter plate.  The car wears Oregon plates, but has a California BAR sticker giving it a get out of jail free card from the Cali smog gestapo. 

Regrettably, somebody made the poor decision to gut the interior, which is great if you are building a track only car, but a pretty poor choice for something that you’ll spend much time driving to work or even bombing down the back roads.  Wear ear plugs.
