THIS IS A NO RESERVE LISTING.

This is my 1984 Porsche 928S 5-speed in great collectible condition.  I've had this car for about a year; I've loved it, and now it is time for someone else to enjoy it.  I believe this is one of the finest 928S models for sale in the country.

I would not hesitate to drive this car to California and back. This is a reliable, dependable, great-driving car with no known mechanical problems.     

The 928 is one of my all-time favorite Porsches.  This car was the pinnacle of design and technology that Porsche could acheive at the time.  The 928 was meant to replace the 911 and as a matter of fact, a 1984 928S beats a 1984 911 in every category, including horsepower, torque, acceleration, handling and braking.  Not to mention that the 928 is far more comfortable and luxurious than a 911.  The problem with the 928 was price.  It was something like $20,000 MORE expensive than a 911, and sales suffered for it.  Subsequent owners often failed to properly maintain these cars, and it is all too common to find horribly neglected and dilapidated 928s that require more work than they are worth.  Stay away from those cars- my car is NOT one of them!  This is a clean, original, well-kept, great-driving 928S that runs, drives and performs beautifully. 

I bought this car for the rare 5-speed manual transmission more than anything else.  Only about 15% of all 928s were made with the manual transmission- the majority were automatics.  The problem with the automatic in my mind, is that in addition to being much less fun, it starts in second gear, meaning that the automatics were very slow off the line and functioned basically like a 3-speed.  The 5-speed manual, like in this car, is the only way to go if you're looking for an enthusiast's car.

This was the second model year for the higher-horsepower "S" model, and you can really tell the difference between the earlier 1978-1982 models and this car.

In the last few years the 928 has begun to get the respect that it deserves, and values have continued to climb and show no sign of stopping.  You could easily buy this car now, keep it for a few years, then sell it for a profit.

This car has the following equipment and options:

  • 4.7L all-aluminum V8 engine
  • 5-speed manual transmission
  • leather seats
  • power driver's seat
  • power locks and windows
  • cruise control
  • tilt wheel
  • automatic climate control with A/C

This car has 17" wheels from a Porsche Boxster with good tires.  This change really updates the look of the car, in my opinion.  It makes the car look totally modern.  I took someone for a ride last week and they could not guess how old this Porsche was.  They were shocked when I said it was almost 30 years old!

This car starts, runs and drives great.  The V8 rumble is outstanding and will make your hair stand up.  I just replaced the transmission with a warranted unit (the synchros had begun to go bad) for a cost of $2500.  The transmission shifts great, and goes in and out of all gears, up and down, with no trouble.  The clutch is tight and the brakes are good.  The suspension is tight and stable, and this car feels right at home taking an entrance ramp curve at 80 mph.  This car is tight, stable, solid and drives VERY WELL.  There are no noted fluid leaks. 

Included are the previous owners' receipts, paperwork and registrations.  There is a note indicating that the timing belt and water pump were replaced at 108,380 miles.  If you're a 928 enthusiast you know how important that is. 

This car has what appears to be all-original paint.  The paint is in very good condition for being 29 years old, and looks good.  The body is straight and clean with no major flaws, dents or dings.  Of course the car is mostly aluminum, but still there is no noted body panel rust.  This car looks beautiful, clean and original; not messed-around-with.

The interior is original.  The leather seats are often a weak spot for these cars, and these seats have held up rather well, considering.  They are still in very presentable condition, not cracked, shredded or falling apart like you see so often.  The driver's outside seat bolster is worn thru a bit, and the seats do show their appropriate age, but otherwise the leather is all intact and in decent shape.  The cost to reupholster these 928 seats is about $2000, so be sure to buy a car with decent seats like mine, or be prepared to pay plenty.  The shift knob and shift boot are brand new. 

Keep in mind this is a nearly 30 year old car and as such it is not brand new.  Please expect normal issues of wear and tear consistent with the age of the car.  Both headlights come up properly and work fine.  The HVAC temp controls and blower motor work fine, but the A/C doesn't blow cold and I haven't looked into it.  The entire A/C system is intact, so there is no reason it couldn't be made to work if someone wanted.  Both driver and passenger windows work properly.  The cruise does not appear to work.   

This is probably one of the best 928S cars for sale in the country.  This is a clean, original, great-driving car that will be tons of fun for the new owner, not to mention a greatly appreciating investment. 

This car is kept in my heated warehouse in Willoughby, OH.  You can fly in to Cleveland (CLE) and drive this car home.  Alternatively, you can have the car shipped, I highly recommend Angels Moving Autos at 530 245 0481. 

This is a no reserve listing, but I have a number in my head that might buy the car now. Email/call me to discuss this possibility.

Race Recap: 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans defines 'endurance'

Mon, 16 Jun 2014 10:31:00 EST

Commenting on the rush of events that rocked beginning and end of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, Paul Truswell of Radio Le Mans said "the race is about the ability to endure, not just the ability of drivers to do what they do for a long time." The entire race machine, all the way down to the pit boards and radios, has to survive the stress and abuse of the entire day. This was the race to prove those words.
There were two Toyotas, two Porsches and three Audis, five of the seven led the race at some point, six of the seven ran in the top three. Toyota will be hugely disappointed that it didn't win when its car and drivers were so, so strong, but they gave Audi the kind of scare we haven't seen since the best of Peugeot's days, and Toyota did a better job of it even in the loss. Porsche blew away everyone's expectations, falling 3.5 hours short of a fairy tale ending that would have made Disney cry.
But Le Mans doesn't really do fairy tales. Well, not that fairy tale. Audi's Twitter handle during the event was #welcomechallenges. As usual, Le Mans answered for the entire field.

Mark Webber treats Maria Sharapova to a Porsche 918 Spyder joyride

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 14:58:00 EST

We don't much like Mark Webber right now. Part of being a racing driver is dealing with promotional stuff. It's not hard to find a driver that can't stand all this nonsense, whether it be promoting a product, meeting investors or attending some obscure event. Even a driver of Webber's caliber - a former Formula One driver for Red Bull Racing and a member of Porsche's factory Le Mans team - has to serve his time at the promo events.
Somehow, though, we don't think the Aussie driver minds this particular promo detail. In the video below, Webber attends the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart. He then takes tennis superstar Maria Sharapova out for a spin behind the wheel of the Porsche 918 Spyder. The level of jealousy at the Autoblog office is palpable.
Take a look below for the video. And as we're super jealous of Mr. Webber, hop into Comments and caption the above photo based on what you think he's saying to Maria. Bonus points if you can work "vegemite" into the caption.

Porsche 959 Prototype started it all

Wed, 11 Sep 2013 17:01:00 EST

While Porsche was unveiling the new Nürburgring-dominating 918 Spyder downstairs in Hall 3 here at the Frankfurt Messe, there was another Porsche supercar quietly and discretely on display upstairs in the same hall. That, of course, was the 959. But not just any 959: this was the original Gruppe B prototype.
The 959 was first developed as a rally car in the early 80s to compete with the likes of the original Audi Sport Quattro S1, Ford RS200 and Lancia Delta S4. But Zuffenhausen soon saw its potential as a production road-going supercar, emerging as a technological marvel to challenge the decidedly linear approach of the Ferrari F40. It still stands as a groundbreaking supercar in its own right, but also lead to the first all-wheel-drive 911 Turbo and set the stage for the Carrera GT and aforementioned 918 Spyder that followed to cap the top of the evolving Porsche range.
This original Gruppe B prototype, which presaged the production 959, packed a 450-horsepower 2.8-liter twin-turbo flat-six into an even sleeker form than the final version that followed. We caught up with it on display as part of a display of 80s German classics, of which this 959 prototype immediately stood out as the pick of the proverbial litter. Check out the hotness in the high-resolution image gallery above.
