1987 Porsche 928S4

Last week I posted a 928S as a potential roll of the dice project. Like a lot of high-end cars, the 928 doesn’t always make for the best roll of the dice given how complicated they can be to work on and the cost to get everything back in proper order. But the color combination and general cosmetic condition really made me want to love it and for some it might be unique enough to take the risk.

This 928 seems a lot more secure and while we can never fully trust a seller without verifying that everything is as it should be, the level of detail here looks such that further investigation should be worthwhile. This is a Guards Red 1987 Porsche 928S4, located in Pennsylvania, with automatic transmission and 72,996 miles on it. The price certainly is higher than last week’s project, but you could easily invest more in that project without returning it to this 928’s apparent condition.

You are looking at an exceptionally well kept, great looking luxury Porsche 928, one of the finest series. This car says a lot about its owner, and has been renowned in the world as a symbol of prestige and class, as well as having great performance.

The vehicle has been made and assembled entirely in Germany! It’s been very well kept and serviced, in fact it runs like a new car. It’s a great looking Porsche red color which adds a lot of luxury and sporty appeal to it.

Judging by the miles and the condition of the car, it has been mostly used on the highway and it has also been garage kept!

There are no reported manufacturer’s defects on this vehicle. A never-smoked-in before beauty that looks great and smells clean.

The engine is one of the most powerful in the segment – runs strong and smooth provides the power you have come to expect from a Porsche. The transmission has the Porsche mark on it as well and shifts like on a new car. The car runs great! The engine compartment is clean, and free of any leaks. All the electrical options appear to be in working order.

As you can judge for yourself from the pictures – the interior is clean

This Porsche is equipped with a climate control system and the AC blows ice-cold.

The power locks, windows (and all the other electrical features) all work and are in excellent condition.

As seen in the pictures the rims look good, with fresh looking finish while the tires have plenty of tread left.

Not many of those 928 were made for the US, this is your chance to own a truly unique luxurious coupe in red color that stands out. It’s obviously been garage kept, and is in great condition.

Anytime I see a good looking 928 in profile I immediately am reminded of how fantastic a design these were. Porsche really hit a homerun when putting these together and even the very early models from 1978 still look great. However, moving forward a decade once the lines have been refined just a little bit really shows the promise and I think they still look spectacular today. While clearly not a modern design the 928 doesn’t really look old either. This one looks in great condition and the red on black combination is a classic combination of bright and dark that should have broad appeal and works well on the 928’s lines. The shifter doesn’t appear to be original though it looks perfectly fine. Nothing else really stands out as requiring any questions. The engine bay looks phenomenally clean.

From my reading of the ad this seller doesn’t sound especially knowledgeable about the 928. Most of the details are of the generic variety so that probably means buyers will need to do some additional legwork. That shouldn’t detract from the car itself, as I said it looks in very nice shape, but we also shouldn’t expect that every detail has been covered. I do think it’s been presented honestly though. Of course, the appeal here is to avoid a project so hopefully there are plenty of records present. If so, then it should make for an excellent Porsche. The price definitely is high, probably too high given that it’s an automatic and has over 70K miles, so if it comes down then all the better.
