When the 928 was first launched in 1978, Porsche viewed it as a possible replacement for the 911. While the 911 was and is still today considered a pure sports car, the 928 was a Grand Tourer and one of few Porsches to feature a front engine design. Porsche engineers were able to achieve a 50/50 weight distribution by mounting a transaxle in the rear. This achievement was praised given the V8 engine layout and made the 928 an extremely well handling car with more potential for higher power output. The accolades quickly came in for Porsche and the 928 was awarded the 1978 European Car of the Year, one of very few sports cars to ever claim the title. Considered the flagship performance GT car of its day, the 928 Porsche is still capable of leaving an impression against modern sports cars.
Midway through the 1986 928S model year production, Porsche introduced several improvements. Cars with a VIN sequence number exceeding 1001 are referred to as the 1986.5 models and featured a 5.0 liter V8 engine. A 16 valve cylinder head allowed for an improved torque curve and produced 288 horsepower. The braking system was upgraded to ABS beginning in the 1986 model year, but the 1986.5 models featured larger brakes that would eventually be featured on the 928S4 models beginning in 1987. The higher level of performance matched with the lighter 928S platform makes the 1986.5 928S one of the most sought-after 928 Porsche models, especially in rare 5-speed manual transmission form.
The 1986.5 Porsche 928S Sunroof Coupe featured here is finished in stunning Guards Red with an impeccably kept Gray Beige leather interior.
