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.

Conquest and controversy conclude the 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona [spoilers]

Sun, 26 Jan 2014 19:19:00 EST

If you don't wish to know who won the 2014 Rolex 24 at Daytona, you should avert your eyes right now. We'll even give you a double-space to skedaddle...
For those of you still with us, the first race in the United SportsCar Championship (USCC) is done, but the discussions about it certainly won't end for a while. Daytona Prototypes claimed the first four overall places, the top spot taken by the No. 5 Action Express Coyote-Chevrolet Corvette DP driven by Joao Barbosa, Christian Fittipaldi, Sebastien Bourdain and Burt Friselle. The 16th and final caution of the race bunched the field up for an eight-minute sprint to the flag, so the first place getter finished just 1.4 seconds ahead of the No. 10 Wayne Taylor Racing Dallara-Chevrolet Corvette DP driven by Max Angelelli. Third place went to Brian Friselle in the No. 9 Action Express Chevrolet Corvette DP, 20 seconds down. Chevrolet power hasn't taken the overall win since 2003, eleven years later it scores a one-two-three-four. The No. 6 Muscle Milk/Pickett Racing ORECA-Nissan 03 scored fifth place, the top LMP2 finisher.
The Prototype Challenge class win went to the No. 54 CORE Autosport team of Colin Braun, Jon Bennett, Mark Wilkins and James Gue.

Porsche celebrates 50 years of 911s with limited edition model

Tue, 04 Jun 2013 11:27:00 EST

Despite being 50 years old now, the Porsche 911 sure is looking good for her age. And to commemorate this milestone anniversary, Porsche has created the 911 50 Years Edition you see here, which will make its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show - 50 years after the original 911 debuted at this very same expo.
What's really neat about the 50 Years Edition is that it houses a rear-wheel-drive setup inside of the wider body used for all-wheel-drive Carrera 4 and 4S models. Found at the back is the 3.8-liter flat-six from the Carrera S, upgraded with the Powerkit package that increases horsepower from 400 to 430 and includes the Sport Chrono setup. According to Porsche, hitting 60 miles per hour takes just 4.2 seconds with the seven-speed manual transmission, or 3.8 seconds with the optional dual-clutch PDK.
Visual changes include two special paint colors - a darker graphite grey and a lighter geyser grey - unique 20-inch wheels that pay homage to the original Fuchs rollers of the 1963 car, and special badging at the rear and on the door sills. Inside, there are more throwbacks to the original 911, with green labeling on the instruments, white pointer needles and silver accents. What's more, the leather seats feature a fabric insert reminiscent of the Pepita design from the '60s. Looks great to us.

Porsche celebrates 5M Facebook fans with crowdsourced one-off 911

Mon, 05 Aug 2013 19:30:00 EST

Porsche's Facebook fan base appears to be accelerating as quickly as the cars it builds. The German automaker has just unveiled a special 911 Carrera 4S designed with crowdsourced input as a way to thank its five million Facebook fans.
The 911 features special Aquablaumetallic paint from Porsche Exclusive, contrasting 20-inch white Carrera S wheels and pinstriping, along with an aero package including a fixed rear wing. Inside, there are unique backlit sill plates and the obligatory dashboard engraving that says "Personally Built by 5 Million Porsche Fans."
As a way to turn at least one virtual thumbs up into its more meaningful physical-world equivalent, Porsche is holding a contest to win the chance to drive the car at Britain's Silverstone racetrack - and bring a friend - and nine lucky runners-up will win 1:43-scale models of the 911.
