1989 Porsche 928 on 2040-cars
Paso Robles, California, United States
Feel free to email: firstname.lastname@example.org . The 928 might have failed to replace the 911, but it is bold and beautiful, breaking the mold as Porsche's first
clean sheet design.
Many savvy second-hand buyers less concerned with such high ideals as they were with the business of driving a
fast, capable, sophisticated car at a fraction of list price snapped them up early on. These second owners enjoyed
their 928s until something expensive broke or needed servicing, leaving the car looking a bit less bargain-like.
Flipped onto third, fourth, and sometimes fifth owners, deferred maintenance, inexpensive (and incorrect) fixes,
and plain old abuse has taken its toll on most used 928s, leaving it very difficult to find a clean, low-mileage,
and unmodified car until very recently.
While the 356 and 911 are consistent good earners, the 928 has flown under the radar of many and now it is
experiencing quite a rise in value. Over the past 3 years, prices have risen considerably according to many car
enthusiasts, with S, S4, GT, and GTS models at the tip of this trend - in fact, these cars have seen closer to a
30% increase one year alone.Zero rust, and the paint is factory original in amazing shape with the leather interior being just as well.
Nothing hacked up about this car, rubber is good and the engine is tight. All 90K mile service has been recently
completed and the car is ready for the road. She enjoys cruising for admiration, but performs better with speed -
just like a racehorse who loves to gallop. Smoke free, two owner car. This Porsche is a dream to own!!

Each year, the Vienna International Motor Symposium showcases some of the up-and-coming technologies automakers are engineering for the use in passenger cars, and Volkswagen AG CEO Martin Winterkorn revealed some big developments VW is working on for its future products. Winterkorn discussed a multi-faceted approach that VW is looking to reduce its fleet fuel consumption and exhaust emissions.
Some of the bigger news he discussed included a "high-performance" diesel engine that will produce 134 horsepower per liter and a 10-speed DSG automatic transmission. While no specific applications were mentioned, we can only hope this is for the Audi R4 we keep hearing about.
Another topic he touched on that caused us to perk up our ears was had to do with VW's plug-in hybrid technology. While we know the PHEV versions of the Audi A3 and Porsche Panamera are on the way, Winterkorn also said that these two models will be followed up by Golf, Passat, Audi A6 and Porsche Cayenne plug-in models. Scroll down for a press release highlighting the automaker's future fuel-saving initiatives.
Robb Report has picked the seventh-generation Porsche 911 Carrera S as its 2013 Car of the Year, saying the two-door captivated its judges with "agility, driving dynamics and balance." The German coupe bested 12 others who were also in the running - the impressive list of nominees included the BMW M5, Audi S8, Ferrari FF, Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG and the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse.
Judging involved more than just throwing darts at pictures on the wall, as the publication enlisted a panel of automotive experts to test drive each vehicle for close evaluation. The panelists included 100 members of the Robb Report Club (comprised of top corporate executives and influential readers), Editor-in-Chief Brett Anderson and automotive consultant Robert Ross. Full results of the competition will be revealed in the luxury magazine's March issue, hitting newsstands in about a week.

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.
