1983 Porsche 928 SThis is a no reserve auction, so bid early and it can be yours! I am ready to part with all my cars for the time being.This listing is for one the best early 928's on ebay! I am clearing out my garage and this listing is for a 1983 Porsche 928S, 4.7L V8 and rare, 5-Speed manual transmission. I searched for a 928 for over one year before deciding to buy this one. It is that good and rare.Car is enthusiast owned and well maintained. This listing is for my Grand Prix White, 1983 Porsche 928S.
The Porsche had always been garaged at my old office, day and night. However, I very recently changed jobs and no longer have an office garage space for my beloved Porsche.
Please see the photos, they tell more of the story of the car than the words below.

The car was restored by a professional classic car specialist mechanic and body shop outside of Indianapolis for the shop owner's wife, who did not like the menacing roar of the V-8 engine. The car was repainted in 2013 in its original Grand Prix White over a blue leather interior with a sunroof. This car is a spectacular looking example of an early 928. Its lines are uninterrupted by the side protection moldings common on these cars, its front and rear spoilers are intact and unscathed, and it wears the forged platinum anodized "manhole" cover wheels. This car looks original and unmolested. The 1983 928S model had the best looking rear lights and spoiler combination of the entire 928 production run.
During the car's major restoration in 2013, in addition to the new paint, the car also received new blue carpet, and a refurbished blue leather interior and dash. All deferred maintenance was completed as well including: timing belt/water pump service, all new belts and new radiator hoses, radiator service/flush, brakes all four corners, transmission service, new rear shocks, new hood and hatch shocks, new speedometer head and odometer gear, AC service (r134), new leather inserts on the front seats, all new carpet throughout the car, and new Grand Prix White (908) PPG Waterborne base/clear paint on the car.The car has been well maintained since its restoration and comes with over $12k in receipts from Greff Motors, an esteemed regional Porsche Mechanic. There has been no deferred maintenance on this car. I also have a detailed list of work that was completed as part of the 2013 restoration.The good:
The car is in great mechanical, electrical, and cosmetic shape. Well maintained, original examples of these early 928's are becoming increasingly rare and prices are starting to notch upwards.The not so good:The A/C system needs a new expansion valve and receiver drier. This will likely cost around $1,000. If I end up keeping this car, I am going to have this work done very shortly. The 928 has the power and space to house a robust A/C system and this car can turn cold as a meat locker with a properly functioning A/C system.Conclusion:Overall, this is one of the best examples of an early 928 I've seen on ebay in a long time. The car is in great working order and I wouldn't hesitate to drive it home anywhere in the US. I am happy to help with shipping and am available to answer any other questions you might have. I am certainly a car guy and am always glad to talk cars.Please only bid if you have the money. No flakes!That's all. This car is ready for a new home!
The Louisiana title is clear and in hand. You are more than welcome to come to New Orleans to see the car, drive the car, and kick the tires. 928 examples like this are beginning to appreciate in value and with vintage Porsches, there seems to be no ceiling for how high they can climb.
Appendix -- A bit of history of the 928 Model
The 928 debuted in March 1977 at the Geneva Auto Show to much acclaim. The 928 borrowed no parts from other Porsches, and its shape was like nothing else--a futuristic design with a low, wide stance, a long, sloping hood, a sharp nose, and an evenly rounded rump. Porsche had designed a long shelf life into its latest creation, and at the same time had handsomely incorporated 5-mph safety bumpers front and rear.
The cabin was nothing short of plush, with supportive leather seats, an ingenious tilt steering/instrument binnacle, and all the comforts of a true luxury GT. And it could move, too, with 0 to 60 mph coming in just over 6.5 seconds. By the time the 4.7-liter 928 S arrived in 1983, the car was rated at 146 mph, making it the fastest in America. It was automated to a fully synchronized rear transaxle with either a 5-speed manual or optional 3-speed automatic, and weight distribution was nearly perfect at 51%/49%, front to rear.
