Fresh Major Service ~ Low Opening Bid Price and NO RESERVE

My personal car. It has provided me with several thousand miles of trouble free performance and excellent comfort on cross country adventures, club touring and leisure use. It is not perfect, but it has presented no major mechanical or electrical issues during this time, and it still looks fantastic.

I love this car, and it's for auction only due to the fact that my present life allows me no time to enjoy it. It sits in the garage too much now, and I let the registration lapse. It's way too nice to use as my daily commuter, and I hate the prospect of it gathering dust and cobwebs. With regrets, I offer it to a new home.

The car has always gotten a major service including:

NEW Timing Belt with new Idler Pulleys

REBUILT Belt Tensioner (properly adjusted, confirmed by instrument calibration)

NEW Water Pump (customarily done while the timing belt is off)

NEW Radiator Hoses; Coolant Flush w/Extended Life Anti-Freeze

NEW Belts for Alternator, Power Steering, Air Pump

Oil & Filter Change (Mobil 1 )

NEW Air Filter

NEW Spark Plugs

NEW ATF: Drain & Fill Transmission & Torque Converter w/correct Dexron

NEW Transmission Filter

The engine runs smoothly and quietly. Performance is athletic. There are no smoke issues from the tailpipe, no consumption issues, nor any major leaks to deal with on your garage floor.

Air Conditioning does work.It blew cold for the summer. I never made any effort to charge it and have never needed it to be recharged. The compressor spins freely. The rest of theheating and ventilation system, including the stepper motor and blower, work fine.

The fuel filter should be good for about 20,000 more miles, and the air pump filter is still too fresh to think of replacing. I can think of no maintenance to do until the next oil change.

ON the ROAD:

Car drives really nicely. It is fast, stable and very comfortable at speed. It can tramline to the right on crowned local roads, but for the most part it tracks very straight on highways, even when applying brakes with hands off the wheel. Wheels were aligned about three thousand miles ago.

Brakes are strong. Pads have life yet and rotors are smooth with no pulsing through the pedal.

The transmission is excellent, clipping off shifts smoothly around town and crisply on full throttle - exactly as it's supposed to. Its performance is beautifully matched to the engine's torque. I have serviced the transmission every two years (regardless of mileage), and it is very clean inside with fresh ATF and filter.

Including the hand brake, the major controls work very well. The powered accessories (sunroof, windows, locks, mirrors and seats) all perform. All three wipers wipe and the squirters squirt. Horn honks. Cruise control switches on and sets on command, Instruments light up and work. The battery is strong; held its charge over the winter storage. Oil pressure is always strong, cold or warm. I have always run this car on a steady diet of "real gasoline": Non-oxygenated 91 octane -NO ETHANOL.

PLEASE NOTE:The odometer broke, and I repaired it. Nearly every 928 odo breaks eventually because the junk plastic drive gear disintegrates with age. I drove for about thirty-five hundred miles.In any case, I cannot substantiate any mileage figure, and this car should be judged purely on its overall condition and performance.

Tires are in nice shape, with deep tread (see photo link). They are correctly sized: 225/50x16 front ; 245/45x16 rear.

I made two memorable long distance adventures to the east coast with this car, and it never missed a beat on either round trip. I would feel comfortable jumping into this car tomorrow and driving it anywhere.

EXTERIOR:

Not a show car, but a very, very presentable 928 that you can be proud to park in any company short of a PCA concourse. There are small touch-up marks on the paint here and there, most notably on the center of the front bumper cap and the faces of the door mirrors. The paint has a beautiful finish on its major surfaces and down low as well. There is no oxidation or fading. There is very little road rash on the low parts of the sills, but some scrapes and a small tear down low on plastic cladding just behind the right front wheel. There are minor imperfections here and there, but fewer than is typical for a car of this vintage. but there is no obvious evidence of any serious damage. Car was repainted once, over a decade ago, and to a truly excellent standard with a mirror finish.

The windshield is excellent, as is all of the glass. It's the original type windshield, with radio antenna inside - a cool feature that helps keeps the car's profile so lean and clean. If there is any pitting, scratches or wiper marks, I cannot find them.

The overall impression is of a very well cared-for machine that most casual observers would never guess is thirty years old.

INTERIOR:

The inside is very clean and everything is in order. There is some typical wear showing on the steering wheel leather; its stitching is tight and there are no tears or loose edges. Instruments are clear and clean. The leather seats and trim have been well taken care of. The back seats look nearly unused. All four seats have kept their form, with great support and no sagging in the cushions. Dashboard top has some heat cracks over top of the instrument pod, and some small cracks along the defrost vents The floor mats, with Blue-embroidered logos, are in nice shape, with very good, clean black carpets underneath. There is an aftermarket shift knob that doesn't fit very well; I never liked it, but never got around to getting a proper one either. The headliner is excellent; clean, no tears, no sags or slop.The luggage area is neat and tidy with nice, clean carpet. Underneath lies the standard equipment collapsible spare tire(are in good working order!), and the wrench for the BBS wheel center caps. The standard tool kit includes jack, lug wrench, spark plug socket, pliers, a variety of wrenches, tow hook and spare belts.

In all, the interior pretty well matches the standard of the exterior.

UNDERNEATH:

Clean and solid chassis and exhaust. Porsches have been made with lots of galvanized steel since the mid-70s, and the 928 featured doors, hood, front fenders, and roof panel made from aluminum. No corrosion on this car, and I sincerely doubt it has ever been driven in winter. There are no belly pans: I never had 'em, and after experiencing a completely composed and stable cruise at a sustained 130mph on a deserted interstate, I never missed 'em either!

The engine compartment is clean and stock looking, though it could use some obvious paint detail on the top of the engine. The front tow hooks have bends from bumping immovable objects, but could be straightened. Neither the finned alloy oil pan nor the exhaust system show any scrapes or damage. Panel fit is fine, and the door jams and door bottoms have bright, clean paint. There is no rust at all on this car.

OVERALL:

A beautiful, and now classic, Porsche model that is finally getting the attention it deserves. The 928 is a very durable, capable and high-quality adult sports car. It was a true advancement over GT cars that came before it, and still impresses with towering strength, refinement and ability. The S4 model improved upon its predecessors with a full 320 horses from the 5-liter, 32-valve alloy V8 (for the first time as powerful in the USA as the "Euro-spec" cars). Just as importantly, the S4 also came with an updated version of the 4-speed automatic trans. Subtle styling improvements for 1987 complete the picture and visually separate the S4 from the less powerful earlier 928s.

This S4 has been pampered and is a very nicely preserved example that should give many years of strong performance with little trouble. I have done all I can to help ensure that, and I have described this car as well as I know how. If I missed any detail that you'd like to know about or see, please let me know. I will answer quickly and honestly.

I am selling this car to someone who can appreciate it andfeel proud to own it, its being sold AS-IS NoWarranty is given or returns.

Happy Bidding!
