1982 Porsche 928 S Coupe

 

The days are numbered for the 911: this is what the senior managers at Porsche believe at the beginning of the 1970s. So they look at other mechanical configurations and they come to the conclusion that for the future Porsches will have to be with engines at the front, with drives to the rear. The first of the new generation is the 924, a middle-market car, and so Porsche decide to develop a more powerful GT. And this is the 928. Mainly targeted at the American market, the 928 is powered by a 4.5-litre V8 which develops 240bhp, and to balance the weight, the gearbox is located at the rear axle. The rear axle features an independent multi-link arrangement, which is a first on a production car. With these highly advanced features, the Porsche 928 in launched in 1977, and proves immediately to be fast, reliable and durable. In 1979 the 928 S is launched, with the 4.7-litre engine now developing 300bhp. With its very original and timeless design, the Porsche 928 saw a long career, disappearing from the catalogue only in 1995, with a total production run of almost 61,000 units.

 

As we can see from the owner's manual, this Porsche 928 S is from the collection of Prince Rainier. It was sold new in Dusseldorf, Germany, before heading to Ticino in Switzerland where it changed hands and finally joined the Prince de Monaco Collection. It was then acquired by the museum and the odometer at that point showed just 67,000km, which is a modest mileage for such a mile-devouring grand tourer. The maintenance log book indicates a complete overhaul at 60,090km, in April 1994. With an automatic gearbox, the car comes in a very good original condition, with an extremely well-preserved interior. The beige leather seats have very little wear and small booster seats at the back have obviously been little used. The interior reveals the quality of manufacture of the Stuttgart-based carmaker. Under the hood, the intake pipes are clean and mechanicals are very well -preserved. This low mileage car provides an opportunity to taste the exceptional performance of a very fine grand tourer.
