Porsche 928 Roundup Aus Europa

The Porsche 928 has been on my mind lately, no thanks in part to the knowledgable folks over at flüssig magazine. Normally we like to feature examples for sale in the US, but today I decided to peruse one of our favorite sites for used vehicles in Europe, Mobile.de. After searching about, I found a diverse grouping of 928s, all with their own particular charm. We’ll start with this eye catching 928CS prototype, the rarest of all 928 variants, for sale in Spain.

509

Year: 1988
Model: 928CS
Engine: 5.0 liter V8
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 139,820 km (~ 86,880 mi)
Price: €52,000 (~ $56,529 USD)

This is a very special unit, a kind of ‘one-shoot car’ based on a pure 928 ClubSport (motor, gearbox, chassis, suspensions and lighter elements), but equipped with full comfort elements; it was same philosophy than 928 GTE prototype (actually exactly same configuration without Kremer elements). Like this, the car was not delivered to a customer, was a factory owned car.

The car was manufactured in September 1988 and was sold as used in Spain, where was registered in 1993, just two owners. It is in absolutely original state and in outstanding condition.

To highlight:

– Really original state, including all stickers, wheels, keys, dashboards elements, manuals, leather sport seats in excellent condition etc.

– Complete engine and mechanical big stop revision eight months ago: motor supports, injection, timing, power steering, gearbox, clutch, gaskets, etc. This engine has an impressive performance (maybe much more CV than declared).

– Full service two months ago: sparks, oil, every filter, brake fluid, steering fluid, battery, gauges, lambda, A/A gas replaced and new tyres (Bridgestone Potenza S02), with just 1.500 km.

– Great sound system with a very rare original equipment Blaupunkt Berlin IQR-88 (Porsche option 326) with all 10 speakers replaced (adapted to fit in their original cases) by high-end quality Coral speakers.

– Two complete set of keys, full toolkit set, high quality Movendi cover included.

– Available Official Porsche 111 points inspection (January 2015), last revision in Porsche dealer (February 2015) and Certificate of Authenticity.

A great opportunity for collectors or 928 enthusiastic, both due it is a rare model and for his top condition (mechanical, body and interior); it is hard to find a unit like this in Europe.

I can provide whatever detailed information related to car to really interested people. Eventually, some kind of change could be considered.

With 928s increasing in popularity amongst collectors, one can be sure the CS model is certain to gain value in the coming years, if only due to its rarity, with only 19 built and a famous owner being famed German race car driver Hans Joachim Stuck.

If you are looking for a manual 928 but perhaps want something a bit more mainstream and current, this low mileage 928GTS with the 5-speed manual for sale in Italy should fit the bill.

Considering the rarity of the 928CS Prototype we just saw, this is strong money for a GTS, however, it does have much less miles than the aforementioned CS. And even though the CS is more rare, the GTS has been noted of late for a strong increase in values. If, however, you’re looking for more of a cruiser and would prefer the two-pedal option, check out this 1993 928GTS with the 4-speed automatic in a rare hue of Raspberry Metallic for sale in Bavaria.

While the color might be shocking to some, I have yet to meet a color I didn’t like from the heyday of Harm Lagaay and Style Porsche. I’ve never seen a GTS painted in this color, but according to the 928 Registry, only one 928GTS in this color exists in the US. It certainly isn’t a car for a shrinking violet, but if you want something different there are few better choices. With well under 30,000 miles, the asking price is rather reasonable considering what we’ve seen some 928GTS models pull stateside.

Finally, we’ll scope out this Strosek modified 928S4 for sale at Porsche Zentrum Dresden in Germany. What might seem sacrilege to some certainly embodies the outlandish tuning designs that graced sports cars of the 1980s.

The asking price for this Strosek 928 is certainly eye watering. While I appreciate the car for its rarity and the time in which it was conceived, I just can’t get over a 928 without its iconic retractable headlamps. This was a car with a look that was nearly impossible to improve upon, such was the vision of designer Wolfgang Möbius in the mid-1970s. The 928S4 is one of the most common 928s produced, so at least this doesn’t seem as sacrilege as if this conversion were done to a 928GTS. After looking over all four cars here, I’d have to say the 928CS is my favorite, with that Raspberry Metallic 928GTS following a close second. Which one would you choose?

  1. I could live without the strosek but the three others are really nice examples of pretty special cars. The 928 is a great looking car…. the bummer is that most of the issues that will crop up are well beyond my technical skills. That and the cost of having someone else work on the car keeps me from owning one. I would love a really cherry US GTS manual.

  2. Great article, Paul!

    I would have to choose the Raspberry Red car, followed by the Italian GTS. But you know my bias toward GTS’s.
