is in great condition
Haymarket, Virginia, United States
|1989 Porsche 928S4. White w/ Dark Navy Blue leather. Automatic. 96,600 Miles. Exterior is in great condition. The paint looks very nice and there is no damage anywhere on the car. The only flaw is a small dent by the tail light that can be taken out by any paintless dent removal company. The navy blue interior is in real nice condition. Seats are spotless, no rips or tears. Steering wheel, carpets, interior trim pieces, door panels are all in great condition. Upper dash has the usual 928 cracks, but a nice dash cover (or carpet) would fix that. I have a custom fit carpet cover on the dash currently and it looks real nice. I also have custom $300 floor mats that were made and will include with the purchase (not shown in pics). Upgraded head unit to a Clarion AM / FM / CD / IPOD w/Cable. The original wire antenna is still mounted on the roof. Speakers are new Pioneer 6 1/2" in the rear and Polks 4 1/4" up front. The trim pieces are all good. The controls are standard S4. Heating and air controls, vent, climate control sensor, stereo, 24 hour clock, ash tray, shift control, armrest/storage, window controls, moon roof, and rear windshield wiper controls. Everything works, but the AC will likely need a charge. Has front and rear A/C.There is nothing mechanically wrong with the Porsche. Engine and transmission are in great shape and sound awesome. Mobil 1 Synthetic religiously. Has Stainless Steel X-Pipe + Rear Muffler Bypass = 358 HP. This 928 has a distinct sound like no other. I also have the original Exhaust Manifold and Muffler that goes with the vehicle. Both are in great condition. Both front doors are Dynamatted, Front floor mats have been backed by 3/8" neoprene. Rear wheel wells (where the 6 1/2" speakers reside) have been filled with foam. Rear trunk has also been padded with 3/8" neoprene. Cabin was quieted down for the X-pipe & RMB. The battery/spare tire compartment is clean. The toolbox is complete. The spare is there. The rear seats fold down perfectly and the seat backs (Carpet) are in great shape. The vinyl panels in the rear compartment are in good condition but warped a little from the sun -- Every 928 has this problem. The entire ceiling/headliner is in good shape.. The moon roof works most of the time. I have a feeling it is the switch on the center console. I purchased extra switches, but never go around to it. Front and rear visors all work and are in great condition. The wheels are factory 928 S4. Polished wheels perfectly balanced and true. The Tires are Kumho Ecsta ASX. Fronts are 225-50R-16, Rears are 245-50R-16. The tread life is excellent on these tires. The oversized calipers brake this car very well. Carbon Fiber Brace under the hood. Replaced the stock aluminum one.
This car has always been adult owned. Never abused and I always keep it garaged. I bought it as a collectible, have owned it for 3 1/2 years and only take it on the occasional Sunday drive. The timing belt and water pump were done shortly before I bought it and I have only put a couple hundred miles on it since I purchased.
Overall, a beautiful example with only minor little things to fix (which are typical on ALL 928's).
Not many nice & clean examples left! Car is listed locally and auction will end if a local deal is made, or acceptable offer is received through Ebay. Please feel free to email me with any questions.

When the tragic news first came in that actor Paul Walker had been killed in a car crash, family, friends and fans were left searching for answers. They now have at least one key question answered, with the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department blaming "unsafe speed" for the fatal accident.
Tue, 04 Mar 2014 07:30:00 EST
According to a statement released by the LACSD, "Investigators determined the cause of the fatal solo-vehicle collision was unsafe speed for the roadway conditions". The investigation into the November, 2013 crash determined that Walker's 2005 Porsche Carrera GT had been driven by his business partner and racer, Roger Rodas, at speeds between 80 and 93 miles per hour - less than the 100+ mph initially suspected, but still far too fast for the road on which they were traveling, which carried a posted limit of 45 mph.
In the investigation into the death of the Fast & Furious star and his friend, some people were quick to finger the Porsche in which they were riding as the culprit. The Carrera GT does, after all, have the reputation of being a notoriously difficult car to control. But after an exhaustive investigation, law enforcement officials in California have vindicated the car and dismissed any mechanical fault as the cause of the accident.
After months of teasing with camouflaged testers, Porsche has finally unveiled its prototype entry for the 2014 World Endurance Championship, the 919 Hybrid. Porsche, you may recall, hasn't had campaigned a factory team at Le Mans in years, so the 919 is nothing less than their recommitment to endurance racing.

Combining a 2.0-liter V4 (yes, a V4) that revs to 9,000 rpm, the 919 produces around 500 horsepower with a pair of energy recovery systems. The first system recovers the heat energy from exhaust gasses as they pass through an electrical generator, while the second system is a bit more familiar. Using a setup similar to what is found on the production 918 Spyder, a generator on the front axle recovers kinetic energy from the brakes, which is subsequently stored in a battery system. That power can then be sent to the front wheels at the driver's command, effectively turning the 919 into an all-wheel-drive racecar.
Despite these various forms of motivation, Porsche doesn't claim to be seeking outright power supremacy, with Chairman Matthias Müller saying, "In 2014, it will not be the fastest car that wins the World Endurance Championship series and the 24 hours of Le Mans, rather it will be the car that goes the furthest with a defined amount of energy. And it is precisely this challenge that carmakers must overcome. The 919 Hybrid is our fastest mobile research laboratory and the most complex race car that Porsche has ever built."
Former Porsche CEO Wendelin Wiedeking (left in the above photo) could potentially be facing some time in the slammer after all. The last we had heard, he and former Chief Financial Officer Holger Haerter (right) had avoided a trial in April due to a lack of evidence. However, an appeals court in Stuttgart has looked at the case again and overruled the earlier decision, finding that the executives should be tried for share manipulation during Porsche's failed attempt to take over Volkswagen in 2008, Bloomberg reports.
The judges in the appeal "list numerous indications that could suggest that there was a hidden decision to increase the stake as they could suggest the opposite evaluation by the lower court," said Stefan Schueler, a spokesperson for the court, in a statement cited by Bloomberg. Wiedeking and Haerter put out their own releases saying that there was no merit to the charges.
The prosecutors allege that Wiedeking and Haerter had a plan to buy up VW stock options in 2008 to take the automotive giant over but hid it from investors. The whole thing was a massive failure and eventually allowed VW the chance to acquire Porsche and forced the two execs to step down. In addition to the criminal investigation, hedge funds have attempted to sue the company multiple times in civil court for the same reason, but they have repeatedly failed.
