1987 Porsche 928S4 5-speed – Revisit

The manual-transmission Grand Prix White 928S4 we featured back in September is back up for sale, this time as a reserve auction. Last time it was listed with a Buy It Now of $39,900 and failed to sell, which should give us some insight regarding where a possible reserve for this auction may lie. Bidding sits currently at $17,600 so we’ll have to see whether it can reach its reserve.

I can’t remember the last time I wrote up a 928, which is a fault of mine and not of the cars, but it is about time I turned my attention back to Porsche’s great GT. The 928 was with us for nearly 20 years and looking back across the range you see a gradual reshaping and evolving form, but without significant variation until you compare the first to the last. I can imagine that when first introduced they were a stylistic revelation. By the end of their run the shape certainly had changed but it was always identifiable as a 928. Of course, this is sort of what Porsche does: continually refine a design rather than implement dramatic changes. I digress, the example we see here comes from the middle of the 928’s life, a Grand Prix White 1987 Porsche 928S4, located in Oregon, with just 29,820 miles on it. The S4 featured a 5.0 liter V8 up front producing 316 hp delivered to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. The car featured here has been been fitted with the very desirable 5-speed manual.

Grand Prix White always shows very well on these cars and when contrasted with the dark blue leather interior it makes for a very attractive package overall. While I like this vintage wood steering wheel in general it seems a little out of place on a 928 (and I can do without the wood shift knob), but if that’s the largest problem we come across then that isn’t too bad. As always a thorough inspection is in order, though this tends to be especially important on the 928 as repairs can significantly add up if the maintenance was poor. All together this looks good and with the manual transmission it should provide for many miles of sporty, but refined, motoring.

  1. These cars in Grand Prix are stunning vehicles. Makes me wonder what could have been if Porsche would have chosen to continue to develope the line. A mid 90’s refresh with a twin turbo pushing 400+hp? I think that the odd proportions of the current Panamera would be cured by a two door 2+2 that harkens back to the 928 line.
