Classic Car Overview

1981 Porsche 928 Convertible By the mid-late 1970s, Porsche was increasingly seeing the 911 as a car that was nearing the end of its evolution. The 928, along with the entry-level 924, were supposed to herald a new era of front-engine, rear-drive Porsches that would feel easier and more modern to drive. In fact, the 928 was seen as the brands flagship product, ahead of even the mighty 930-series 911 Turbo. We all know how things shaped up in the end: The 911 is still extant in the lineup today, while 928 ended production more than two decades ago. On August 7, 1986, famed American IMSA racer Al Holbert took a pre-production 928 S4 to the Bonneville Salt Flats for a few sprints. He went on to clock in the flying mile at 171.110 mph and the flying kilometer at 171.926 km/h, making the 1987 928 S4 the fastest naturally aspirated production car in the world at the time. For consignment, a convertible version of said 928 (not the one that did 171 MPH, but a version of that car. Exterior The 928s futuristic design and status as a luxury vehicle for the eccentric jet set, is mostly made of aluminum, and bathed in black for the version you are reading about. Shipped from Germany it went through a few owners eventually landing on one that had a brainchild idea to convert it to a convertible. All we know is that it was done in Rancho Santa Fe, California and has a black canvas top. Sporty Id say, still having great curb appeal and 1980s lines and now a trunk. From its smooth rolling headlight nose to the iconic rounded rear, this car holds the line on German design. An integrated matching black neoprene and absorbent front bumper and two black rubber crash bumpers on back, it had to conform with US standards. Standard slotted Porsche wheels are on all four corners. Ok whos the U boat pilot? Interior I feel like I just crossed the finish line in first place with a gaze of this interior. Checkered flag inserts with molded plastic door panels complete with ac vents and power toggles and a carpeted lower, await our entry. Inside more wild eye-catching inserts of the checkered flag and it looks like its actually waving at you. Black smooth bolsters keep your eyes from going crazy and give a nice edge line to the high back buckets. The back 2 plus 2 rear bench is in the same genre and looking good. Black carpeting for the floors, and the dash with the center console are all in black and utilizing the curvaceous design of the exterior. The checkered flags are really waving now! Drivetrain Under the hood in front the engine, (yes front engine Porsche, and it is as far back to the center of the car as it could possibly get for even weight distribution, and in 4.5 liter V8 form. It is topped with EFI and has a 5-speed manual transmission on the back with a 2.75 final drive. Everything is very clean and nice under here! Undercarriage Plenty of aero panels although the strengthening job on the frame rocker is showing as a bit wrinkly but is structurally sound. Independent suspension with power disc brakes are in front, and independent coil springs with power discs are on back. The muffler has a hole in it. Drive-Ability A quick starter and the test track provided a fun drive. Packed with performance this car is no slouch and handles great. A fav of the 80s Jet set crowd, you would usually see a well-dressed female driving these as they were it car and a high end wife must have. Pony up! Schnell! Schnell! Frauline...
