ONLY 37K ORIGINAL MILES, WARRANTY CARD & MAINTENANCE RECORDS, NICE 928S PORSCHE
An affordable survivor exotic that's built for grand touring comfort. Yes, this 1983 Porsche 928S is the perfect car to take on a long weekend trip and then find a car show to showcase it.
The 928 has aged gracefully as it has become a classic in its own right. Smooth and purposeful, it still generates a ton of attention out on the road, and despite its modest asking price, folks will still think you won the lottery if you park it in your garage. In fact, its perpetual high-end appearance is why this coupe has been so well pampered and the original paint is in particularly nice condition. That's good news because the factory Ruby Red Metallic is one of those deep and sophisticated colors that never goes out of style. The same goes for the great-looking sport alloy wheels. The 928 was Porsche's most expensive model by a wide margin in 1983, and you received exceptional build quality for your house-sized sticker price. Fit and finish are exemplary, so you can shut the doors with confidence every time. The S offered a larger rear wing, flush-mounted taillights, and, of course, those instantly recognizable retracting headlights.
Typical Porsche focus on the driver dominates the interior, with comfortable tan leather buckets and a perfect driving position. Averaging less than 1,200 mile a year means very little seat time. So the driver's bucket shows minimal wear for being original and 30+ years-old. In fact, all four seats are buckets to provide the best individual comfort in supple leather. The carpets, door panels, dash, and headliner are all in coordinating earthtones and have a time machine level of freshness that will make you believe it's 1983 all over again. As a true grand touring Porsche, this comes loaded with features like power windows, power seats, cruise control, sunroof, and provisions for air conditioning. In fact, the only non-factory item you'll find is an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. It doesn't look out of place in the dash, and provides more modern tunes, but purists will be happy to know the original radio comes with the sale. You'll love sitting behind the original 928 tilt wheel and watching the full gauge pack do its dance and you dig into the deep tones of the motor.
Under the hood is the original 4.7-liter V8 that with more displacement for '83 pumped out a very respectable 234 horsepower. The overhead cam motor provides the best of both worlds as it has muscle car-like low-end torque, yet shrieks to redline like an exotic when you prod of the accelerator. The exhaust note is truly a symphony for the ears that you control all with your right foot. The transxale setup makes for a wonderfully balanced feeling on the road, and that's exactly where this car belongs. Sure, it's a survivor with ultra low mileage and so many original components, but you should never deny yourself the pleasure of driving an affordable and powerful Porsche. Especially when it has great driving features such as a fully independent suspension, performance-mined four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes.
The market is catching up to the 928, but there's still time to get into a fully sorted survivor like this one. It even comes with the original warranty card, owner's manual, and maintenance records. For a short time the Porsche mystique and performance is within reach for those of us with modest budgets. Call today!!!
