Classic Car Overview

This 1978 Porsche 928 is a first-year grand touring luxury exotic. So you have the ideal mix of history and power. And when you can get it in an ultra-slick all-black presentation, then you know youre looking at a classic of distinction. The 928 has aged gracefully as it has become a true classic. Smooth and purposeful, it still generates a ton of attention out on the road. Its especially true of this example where the factory correct black has such a deep luster and slick shine that we suspect someone invested deeply in a professional respray. The sheetmetal has been well cared for over the last 40+ years, and so the coupe retains its distinctive shape that was on so many bedroom wall posters. This was the debut year for the 928, and it was built to be a premium Porsche from day one (only the turbo was more expensive.) So you received exceptional build quality for your house-sized sticker price. Fit and finish are exemplary, so youll be proud to sow off all the hallmark pieces, from the flush-mounted retracting headlights to the phone dial 16-inch alloys. When you open the door, youll immediately recognize another icon of the early 928s. The checkerboard-like pattern of the Pasha interior has an awesome look on the seat insert and matching door panels. It adds distinction to this fresh looking and fresh feeling black interior. As a true grand touring Porsche, this comes loaded with features like power windows, cruise control, tilt steering column, and an upgraded stereo that keeps a retro style but now adds modern Bluetooth. Plus, the air conditioning has been upgraded to R134a to keep it blowing cold. Youll love sitting behind the classic Porsche four-spoke wheel and watching the full gauge pack do its dance and you dig into the deep tones of the motor. Under the hood is the proper fuel-injected 4.5-liter motor. The overhead cam V8 provides the best of both worlds as it has muscle car-like low-end torque, yet shrieks to redline like an exotic when you prod of the accelerator. The exhaust note is truly a symphony for the ears that you control all with your right foot. The transaxle setup makes for a wonderfully balanced feeling on the road, and thats exactly where this car belongs. It has so many great driving features, including a fully independent sports suspension, Mercedes-developed three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes. This is an ideal classic where not only is the motor believed to be original, but also the low mileage is believed to reflect the accurate reading. The sale also comes with the owners manual and maintenance records. So if youre looking for a first-year 928 with the ideal look and pedigree, dont let this coupe slip away. Call today!!!
