1979 Porsche 928
I can’t take this silver shark out for even a short ride without someone throwing me a big smile and a “thumbs up.” That’s just how beautiful, sexy and visually appealing this Porsche is. And this machine is much more than business as usual. Instead, all sorts of updating, intelligent performance, visual modifications and technological upgrades have resulted in the smoothest-running, best-handling, hottest-looking German sports tourer in all of Florida. Anyone who sees her will second that opinion.
The love and thousands of dollars lavished upon “Sharkey” have been well-spent. My world-class mechanics improved her performance, reliability, handling, efficiency, beauty and the overall driving experience by updating her original excellent specs. We changed her smallish 16” wheels and narrow tires by flaring her wheel wells and installing ultra-high performance Z rated all-season rubber on a set of OEM Porsche Turbo 18”s. The suspension has been tuned and the cornering dynamics now can challenge a go-kart. This machine is unflappable under any situation. The electronics have been calibrated to take maximum advantage of the incredible torque the euro-spec 4.5L V-8 puts out. This machine is so strong you could take off from a stop light in 3rd gear!
The hydraulic clutch has been redesigned and modified for flawless, effortless engagement. The 5 speed has been maintained as new and shifts smoothly. On the highway, downshifts for passing slower cars are virtually unnecessary. The slightest pressure on the gas pedal and the other guy is in your rear view mirror. At any speed, there’s virtually zero vibration, just smooth power and those great exhaust notes - a deep bass like every classic muscle car should. But she’s so much more than just muscle. She commands respect wherever she travels because she’s beautiful, graceful, powerful, handles like a go-cart, and she’s faster than a great white shark on full attack mode.
Behind the wheel, all the options are at your fingertips: power windows, power sunroof, power mirrors, ice-cold air conditioning, and a custom-designed, 9-speaker, MB Quart/Kenwood sound system that cranks out full-spectrum clarity and sends sub-woofer thumps up your spine! I also added brushed aluminum accents, stainless steel knobs, and other premium cues that send this machine’s pilot into visual orbit.
She’s a 37 year-old classic and exhibits very few minor flaws. I’m giving her away at $15,250 and will consider a reasonable counter offer. If she was perfect in every way, I’d ask twice the price. But if you are a looking for the ultimate daily driver, a beautiful, near-perfect fun machine with gravity-defying power and incredible ergonomics, or if you want a great candidate to polish and prepare a show-car, then Sharkey is ready for you.
