While the stories of it being a replacement for the 911 are probably greatly exaggerated, the 928 blossomed into one of the era's greatest grand touring machines. Ferociously powerful, insanely fast, and immensely comfortable, it was a no-compromises supercar that you could drive every day. This 1987 928S is an outstanding example, offering lots of originality, maintenance records, and a few thoughtful upgrades along the way. Admittedly, the 928 is a love-it-or-hate-it design, but nobody can argue that it hasn't aged gracefully. Smooth and purposeful, it still generates a ton of attention out on the road, and despite its modest asking price, folks will still think you won the lottery if you park it in your garage. Nothing works better on a Porsche of any kind than traditional Guards Red, which gives this 928S the star appeal of a Ferrari and matches its exotic engine note. It was Porsche's most expensive model by a wide margin in 1987, and for your house-sized sticker price, you got some of the world's best build quality. Fit and finish are exemplary, and the ingot-like feeling of the structure gives it a solid feel on the road. The S offered a slightly larger rear wing, flush-mounted taillights, and, of course, those instant-recognizable headlights. The exterior on this one is still sharp. The paint is quite nice for a car in this price range, and the black trim still looks fresh, even today. It doesn't look like this car has ever spent a day in foul weather. Typical Porsche focus on the driver dominates the interior, with comfortable black leather buckets and a perfect driving position. The power seats are in great shape showing very minimal wear despite their age, and the leather remains supple and smooth, not dry and cracked. A MOMO steering wheel looks right at home. The instruments are all fully functional, and the 928S came only one way: loaded, so that means power windows, A/C, and a power sunroof are included. A new Kenwood AM/FM/CD stereo has been fitted, but I think you'll prefer the rumble of the V8. The carpets are excellent, door panels are like new, and, well, someone clearly took exceptional care of this sizzling sports car. The S also received a new 5.0 liter 32-valve V8 that idles like a big block Camaro and pulls like a freight train. Its lightweight aluminum construction ensures an almost perfect weight distribution, aided by the rear-mounted 4-speed automatic transaxle. Don't bemoan the presence of an automatic here, though, because experts and Porsche fans almost universally agree that the auto 'box is the better choice. The engine bay is spotless, looking almost new thanks to a dedicated owner, and recent service records add confidence to what is already a very reliable machine. The chassis shows signs of use, but it's also proof that this is a southern car, clean and straight. The biggest upgrade is the 18-inch alloy wheels, which wear 225/40/18 front and 275/35/18 rear Bridgestone performance radials. An A-list performance car with a pedigree, this V8 Porsche is the most thrilling daily driver you'll ever own. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom.
