1981 Porsche 928
Listed is a beautiful 1981 Porsche 928. This is Porsche luxury GT (grand tourer) which is the first production Porsche with a V8 engine. Large 4.5L 229 hpV8 is really an amazing thing to listen to.
This car was amazingly engineered especially considering 1981 standards. 50/50 weight distribution amazing handling super comfortable cabin galvanized steel and aluminum body to decrease weight amazing aerodynamic look (iconic in Risky Business and Scarface)...this was truly a supercar of its time. Only 17-18000 were made worldwide.
I am the third owner and bought this car from a collector. I've owned this car for approximately 5 years and have only logged 7-8000 miles total. This is a summer driver and has not seen snow or ice on my watch. Comfortably garage kept.
All the necessary maintenance was done by Porsche mechanics and the expensive timing belt repair (928 owners have nightmares about this) was done less than 2000 miles ago.
The car is a driver's car not a show car. It has small scratches on the body and front fender/bumper. The body is straight with no rust to my knowledge. The car has never been in any accidents.
The sunroof works as do all the gauges. The odometer was replaced immediately after it stopped working a few years prior. The mileage is original; less than 100 thousand miles on the odometer is extremely hard to find on cars of this age.
The A/C and heat do work although all of the fan settings do not. The rear windshield wipers does not work. Again these are things that didn't bother me so I didn't fix.
The driver's side seat has tears of which I've included a picture. A trim shop fixed some of the ceiling leather which was detached in a few places.
The dashboard leather also peeled back over time. A replacement cover was placed by the trim shop as well and does look cosmetically appealing.
I had a basic Alpine head unit installed (CD player/Ipod input etc).
All in all this is a lot of fun to drive. It really hits its stride at 55. Completely smooth acceleration after that and you can get to 80 or more pretty quickly and effortlessly.
Again this car was made to go on long trips (across Europe) in style and comfort. This car is not intended to beat a Mustang off the block.
The care has been well maintained and has many more years ahead of it. It needs to be maintained. Many of the 928s were not cared for properly and are now scrap metal.
These are classic Porsches which will probably appreciate in the future (look at the 1980s 911s!)
I've tried to describe this car as honestly as I could. Again she is 34 years old. The car does not come with any type of warranty.
Sales are final. Cashier's checks will be cashed at my bank and given a week to clear and then the car can be towed by your towing company right to your door (or mechanic). Clean NJ title and the car has passed a recent inspection.
Please contact me with any questions more pics etc.
Thanks for looking.
