The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

The 1988 Porsche 928 S4 SE (Sport Equipment) was a limited production run of 42 right-hand-drive cars for the UK market. Closely related to the predecessor 1987 Clubsport model (left-hand drive only), the 928 SE was offered in limited colours of Grand Prix White, Guards Red, Black, and Silver Metallic.
In addition, cars were fitted with lightweight forged alloy wheels, sunroof delete, and a special exhaust system. A limited-slip differential, a close-ratio five-speed manual transmission, sport suspension, and a specially tuned 320 hp, 32-valve engine with higher-profile camshafts were also included. Electrically height-adjustable sport seats in black leather with special black/red pinstripe cloth inlays and red piping add to the unique vehicle.
This 928 S4 SE is car number one of the 42-car production run and was ordered by AFN, Ltd. with Porsche AG for the sole intention of racing. Marque specialists have confirmed that this car is unique from the balance of the production run with respect to its gearbox type, rear wiper delete, and reduced soundproofing. A Porsche Certificate of Authenticity confirms the engine to be original.
Porsche claimed 0 100 km/h in 5.6 seconds, a significant improvement over the stock cars 5.9-second time. This car also competed in the Porsche Production Championship in 1988 and 1989 with Tony Dron as the exclusive driver, while BF Goodrich used it as a poster car for their marketing. Prior to being the possession of the consignor, the vehicle resided in the Lake District with the same family since 1998.
