Itâ€™s pretty rare these days to come across a virtually pristine early Porsche 928. Why most 928s, especially the early cars, are in such disrepair is somewhat of a mystery. It seems that there is a comparative abundance of nice late â€˜70s 930s and other 911 derivations. I think that part of the reason lies with the fact that 928 values have remained so low for such a prolonged period of time that owners couldnâ€™t financially justify the costs associated with maintaining them. Well, this example (along with a few other early cars that have sold recently) gives me hope that early 928s are finally starting to get some of the recognition they deserve. After all, it was a very significant Porsche at a very interesting and somewhat tumultuous time for the company. Anyhow, I digress and will segue into a discussion about this particular car for sale in The Netherlands.
This car is one of the nicest early 928â€™s that Iâ€™ve ever seen come up for sale. It is said to have only 13,800 kilometers (around 8,500 miles) and to be a one-owner car. The color combo is beautiful. The Gran Prix white exterior compliments the 928 very well, and goes well with the very striking orange and black interior. It is very well optioned for an early 928, and is equipped with an automatic transmission, automatic seats, and a sunroof. For those who arenâ€™t well familiar with the early cars, most didnâ€™t have sunroofs and unlike later 928â€™s, most came with manual transmissions.
