1987 Porsche 928 S4 Coupe 2-door 5.0l on 2040-cars
paint shines and looks great
Laurel, Montana, United States
|I've had this car for about 2 years now. I got the car in rough to average condition for a fair price. I spent about a year fixing up all of its many issues. I have full documentation and plenty of pictures to show the work i performed over time. I'm an ASE certified tech that does his own maintenance so no worries about faulty work should arise. The exterior paint shines and looks great, however there is a large blemish (cracked paint) on the rear left tail light, (a result of a previous owner), and some small blemishes on the passenger door ( my own doing, on accident of course.) As far as what has been refreshed and rebuilt, some of the main accomplishments have been the 4 speed auto trans-axle has been swapped out with a rebuilt unit (has about 5000 miles on it). The brakes have been completely refreshed, all the way from a new master cylinder to completely rebuilt calipers all the way around, accompanied by drilled and slotted rotors. The park brake shoes have even been replaced. I've replaced and cleaned up a lot of components to give the underside a brand new look. I've installed solid aluminum steering rack bushings for a sportier and more responsive turning experience. I've also installed a high performance X-pipe (supplied by 928 Motorsports) and have no catalytic converters; so if you plan on buying this be sure to plan on getting those or checking the laws in your area. I've replaced all the vacuum lines with silicone lines. For those who know of it, i have the Porken Klamp installed on the drive line at the fly wheel (this ensures no drive-line creep will press on the crank shaft and wear the thrust bearing, a common issue with this model). I've done a little custom upgrade to the interior for a more modern look. This includes an aftermarket MoMo Italy steering wheel, a few polished aluminum pieces, a new leather t-shifter hand with new aftermarket leather boot, and a brand new sound system that includes 6 speakers and one 12" sub-woofer (sub-woofer supplied with its own amp, which is a part of a presentable box custom made with leather wrap to match the interior.) The sound system is controlled and powered by a Kvt-514 head unit with a 7" pop-out display and I-pod, DVD, or Sirius satellite radio capabilities (also navigation.) I've also converted all interior lights to LED's. This includes all courtesy lighting and module lighting (HVAC, Central warning, instrument cluster, and Pod bezels.) The dash has cracks but has a custom cover to hide them. The passenger and driver seats both function properly, but the driver seat has normal wear due to people getting in and out of the car. Rear tires and shock-absorbers have been replaced very recently. The engine has had some custom paint work done to it (refer to picture) along with a flawless silicone belly pan gasket that has been guaranteed to last the life of the car. I have many parts that go to the car (stock steering wheel, a few new parts I haven't got around to installing, and the Porken Lift-bars) that i will be adding to this sale; If i don't have the car then I have no use for these parts.The car sits on stock 16" wheels, and for the most part really is stock. So that leaves any room for someone to change it to their liking. I'm interested in selling because i'd like to try a 911 out for a while.

It's the show-down (sort of) we've all been waiting for. The battle of the hybrid hypercars from the performance powerhouses of Europe: Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder. No one publication has managed to get their hands on all three just yet, but this video has - and with a Koenigsegg Agera R thrown in for good measure.

The video was shot by our (unrelated) Dutch compatriots at Autoblog.nl at the TT Circuit Assen in the Netherlands. The track has played host to Champ Cars and all manner of racing bikes, but this could be the ultimate grid of actual production machinery that's ever lined up behind its start/finish line. Shame the weather was rainy and this unsurpassed array of supercars weren't really racing - more showing off for the crowds. But what a show it was. Scope out the footage in the video below.
Porsche's Performance Plug-in Preamble
Sun, 07 Apr 2013 19:05:00 EST
By the end of this year, Porsche will be producing as many plug-in vehicles (two) as mainstream automakers such as Toyota, Chevrolet and Honda. Before the 2015 918 Spyder hybrid supercar goes on sale in the US, though, it will be warming its customers up to the idea of a plug-in model with the 2014 Panamera S E-Hybrid. A step up from the previous Panamera S Hybrid, the new plug-in Panamera adds a more powerful and advanced electric drive system that pledges to deliver the performance expected of a Porsche with the added benefit of improved fuel economy and reduced emissions.
Going on sale in November, the Panamera S E-Hybrid is aimed at customers also considering the upcoming plug-in version Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but the car's dimensions and performance could make it a competitor for Tesla Model S customers. We headed to Germany at Porsche's invitation to see how well it performs, as well as check out the full range of newly refreshed Panamera models, which now numbers nine offerings - although we're still waiting for a production version of the gorgeous Sport Turismo wagon concept.
Porsche has given us another look back at its successes at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This time it's 1971, the year that its 917 set records that haven't all been eclipsed. It's 45-kilogram magnesium tube frame was the lightest, Jackie Oliver set the fastest in-race lap with a time that still stands, and winning drivers Helmut Marko - the same Helmut Marko currently with Infiniti Red Bull Racing - and Gilles Lethem did so many laps that their distance wasn't exceeded until the Audi R15 TDI did it in 2010.
1971 was also the year of the "Pink Pig." With bodywork created by a French aerodynamics firm, the wider, rounder 917 earned the porcine moniker so Porsche painted it pink and labeled it with the cuts you'd get from a pig. Sponsor Martini was so miffed they demanded all Martini branding be removed. No one can remove the thousands of photographs taken of the car ever since. Enjoy that and more in the video below.
