It’s crazy to think that once upon a time, before all this Panayenne nonsense, a V8 was unheard of for Porsche’s road cars. Underneath the long bonnet of this blindingly-red 928 lies a 5.0l V8 that pushed out 316hp in 1987, over 50% more than the 5.0L V8 in the contemporary Ford Mustang. Engine displacement aside, there’s no mistaking this 928 for a Fox body with the spaceship chic looks, updated for 1987 with a spoiler and new front and rear fascias. Today’s car is blessed with a row-your-own 5-speed in place of the more common slushbox, so you’ve got that going for you. Which is nice.

I really like the S4, and despite the high maintenance costs this seems like a decent price for 300+hp, good looks and Porsche quality. The red on chrome is bit much for me (how about GOLD wheels to complete this look), especially because I think the 928 looks so damn good in dark grays and blacks to fly under the radar. Those are my only qualms though, because this is an awesomely ’80s car that would be a ton of fun for the price of a base Civic (to buy, at least…).
