1978 Porsche 928 - RoW*233,000 km's*5 Speed Manual*No sunroof*Silbermetallic (was just professionally wrapped in Green Pearlescent this year, original paint is shown in gallery and in very good condition)*Clear Texas Title in my name (see photo gallery)
I've had over 20+ 928s, and this one is by far the most reliable early CIS car I've had. Cosmetically it is a true survivor for its age, and very presentable as a driver. I rarely say this, but you can 110% drive this one across the country today...keep in mind its a 40 year old car with no warranties expressed or implied, but it runs extremely well.
A forewarning: If you are looking to blend in with a sea of silver and red 911's at PCA events, this is NOT the car for you...the 928 itself is a statement of being different, a bold departure from what was "Porsche" from its inception... A design exercise by visionaries of what ultimately became the Porsches we have today. As such, I would like this one to go to someone who is either (1) a previous 928 owner or (2) has a true desire to learn about and appreciate them for what they are.
