1988 Porsche 928 S4, Enthusiasts Car With Loads Of Extras on 2040-cars
Gainesville, Georgia, United States
1988 Porsche 928 S4. The opportunity you have been looking for has just arrived. A well kept Black S4 Automatic from a 928 Enthusiast with key features such as premium sound system/w/bass tube, custom rims, Momo steering wheel and red LED lite instrument cluster to name a few. AC blows cold, reasonably new Continental tires on the front end. Exhaust growls like a shark should and is in good shape. I purchased this shark from a Porsche enthusiast two years ago who makes me look tame in comparison who shed a tear as I was driving away as he was staring a family and his wife made him an offer he could not refuse. Prior to my taking delivery the car had new motor mounts installed as well as a steering rack with tie rods. If you know anything about these cars, a set of rods and racks will cost you 2 grand and most used sharks you buy will need the work shortly. Also the complete top end hoses were replaced prior to my purchase. The mass air flow meter was reconditioned. The car comes with a complete set of 4 original slotted wheels with tires, a spare front bumper and lower spoiler as well as a set of original factory manuals ( rare to find in this condition ) and two Porsche 928 car cover, one each for indoors and out. And there is more, A full set or rear plate tools and jack with spare, tire cover, 12 V original pump and two original keys. All lights function. I have several spare parts to go with the car such as window regulator and other nicknacks that you may find yourself needing. No doubt about 928s, they need TLC once in a while.
Open and honest issues, Paint is in good shape, the drivers seat has a repairable tear in the cushion and the electric drivers seat does not work ( I'm 6'4" and it is all the way back and not a problem for me ). The odometer quit working at 128,000 miles ( before I purchased the car ) the prior owner put on 7,000 miles before I got the car and I've added another 3,000. I had a mechanic look to repair the odometer after I got the shark but he advised not to as all other gauges work and he felt that there was no upside to fixing it even though it is repairable. The battery is new, lower seals tightened, the car is a strong runner and passed a compression check before I purchased it and every time I drive it it puts a smile on my face.
I hope that if you are seriously looking for a 928S4, even as a daily driver, you will consider this Shark.

Racecars blow engines all the time, but a Porsche 917 isn't just a run-of-the-mill racecar. British automotive writer Mark Hales reportedly borrowed a 917 from 82-year-old former Formula One racer David Piper for a magazine article, and mechanical tragedy ensued. Nobody is arguing that the engine failed after being spun to 8,200 rpm. However, Hales was warned not to exceed 7,000 rpm, says owner Piper, and the affair landed in English courts with Piper seeking £50,000 - over $79,000 US - in reimbursement funds for an engine rebuild and loss of use of the car while it was being repaired. Judge Simon Brown ruled in favor of car owner Piper, putting Hales on the hook for £110,000 ($174,000) including legal fees - a whole lot of money in any language.

Hales says the Porsche suffered a mechanical fault while lapping that allowed it to slip out of gear and over-rev. Piper wasn't convinced, and sought to have the repair paid for by the guy who broke the racer, saying "If you bend it, you mend it." It's not like Hales is a novice driver, having seat time in both professional and amateur races over 30 years, notching about 150 wins, but even the best drivers sometimes miss a shift, and that's what Piper contended happened to his car.
According to reports, Hales has had to sell most of his valuables to pay his lawyers and is now facing bankruptcy with the ruling against him. Members of the Pistonheads website are trying to coordinate a collection to help him out, as well.
Magnus Walker has stopped by the Big Dog Garage again to pay Jay Leno a visit in the latest episode of Jay Leno's Garage. This time, the Porsche builder brought along his 1972 911 72STR 002. Walker calls the machine his best build to date, and the car is a rolling "best of" from Porsches past, rocking some of the more attractive elements pulled from a wide arc of 911 model years. Of course, the machine also wears a few signature Walker touches, including flush-mount turning indicators, a center-hood fuel filler and plenty of louver work.

Unlike some of Walker's other creations, the 72STR 002 is clean enough to lick. Leno seems suitably impressed with the creation, and while apparently isn't typically a fan of Porsche models in general, Walker's tastefully modified 911 has him singing a different tune. You can check out the car in the video below.
We've seen the upcoming Porsche Macan testing on surface roads and even on the Nürburgring, but here we have our first spy shots showing a disguised prototype doing some winter testing in snowy conditions. Still obscured by plenty of camouflage attempting to mimic its larger Cayenne sibling, we still can't get a clear look at what the Macan's face and rump are going to look like, although it does appear that some details for the front lighting are starting to emerge.
Below the headlights, those are obviously decals trying to look like turn signal lenses, but it appears that there is still some sort of lighting being hidden judging by the small circles cut into the camo. Lower in the fascia, we can also see there are LED running lights not revealed on past prototypes. The entire rear end of this Macan prototype still appears to be tacked-on camo, but the side view appears to be in production form save for the poorly disguised rear quarter windows.
As we've seen in the past, Porsche engineers are still testing the Macan alongside the Audi Q5 with which it shares its platform. There has been no word as to when we could expect to see the Macan in production or concept form, but we'd have to guess that this compact crossover is getting ready to shed its camo very soon.
