Euro 1981 Porsche 928

The Porsche 928 introduced radical new styling in the late 1970s, but the power wasn’t really all that outrageous in typical 70s style. The US-spec car produced 219 horsepower from its 4.5-liter V8, which was respectable but also far short of the 930 output. US cars didn’t receive a bump in power until well into the 1980s and the S model’s introduction. However, in Europe cars got a healthy 10% more power early on for performance more in line with the looks, and for good measure Euro cars were about 100 lbs. lighter than US versions. Today’s example is a manual variant that has some nice upgrades:

It’s all about the seats here – wow those Recaros are spectacular! This example is finished in Tin Metallic (also known as Zinc Metallic), and the spoilers and forged 16″ wheels round out the nice look and make for a neat period-modded piece. Is it a $40k example? That’s a hard sell. Not many early cars are trading up in that region, and when they are they’re pristine and original. I’m not sure that the market supports many at that level though.

    I agree…a nice car, great period seats, but all the money and then some for an early one

  2. 78 or 79 slicktop 5 speed money in a rare color. Not for an 81.

  3. There will soon be a time when this looks like a bargain.
