1985 Porsche 928 S Coupe 2-DoorI am selling a 1985 Porsche 928S on Ebay about a year ago which was listed as a daily drive, wasn't really the case. Here's what I know about the car as I have only driven it around the block a few times to keep battery charged.
The car runs and starts up each time although battery will need a boost. Brake pads are worn and one of the rear struts/shock is in need of replacement.
It is silver, but has been repainted. Paint job ok but If I was going to keep it I would have it repainted.
It needs trim on the rear hatch and the rear spoiler is missing two of the side spoilers that meet to the larger one. Not a big deal but wanted to point out. (see pics).
The hood release works but hanging off the side and needs to be remounted.
The AC does not blow cold and when I bought it, it came with a used compressor (spare). Not sure if it works or not as the prior seller didn't mention it in the ad.
The oil pressure and temp gauge do not work. Gas gauge works. Engine fan seems to come on as needed but someone bypassed the temp sensor and ran another sensor to the fan. Looks like they ran it to the ac fan and not the main engine fan. most likely an easy fix but wanted to mention.
The interior is not bad but driver's leather seat looks like it may have been dyed. Passenger seat is good with no tears. Rear seats are good with no tears but leather is a bit tough.
There are some cracks on the dashboard as expected for a car this old.
The previous owner indicated "drivetrain runs strong", and conveyed he drove the car around town.
I have limited driving the car for the following reasons:
1. not sure when the timing and water pump were last replaced. Belt tensioner light comes on when driving and therefore not taking the risk of further driving until it is replaced.
Front lights work fine and pop up as they should. Windows roll up and down but a little sluggish.
Mileage is listed at 116K but I noticed it's not working, previous owner made no mention of that. The title which he never registered showed last mileage at 115.5K.
I have not registered the car, as I was contemplating keeping it or selling it and decided to sell.
It's a classic car and still looks good. The 1985 is the year that they went to a 5.0 liter from the 4.7. Was one of the better years for that make according to the mechanic I spoke with.
I don't have to sell it so don't offer or contact me with ridiculous prices.
