The Porsche 928 was a sports-GT sold from 1978 to 1995 and
originally intended to replace the iconic 911, the 928 attempted to
combine the power, poise and handling of a sports car with the
refinement, comfort and equipment of a luxury coupé creating, what
some Porsche executives thought would be, a more appealing vehicle
than the compact and quirky, yet sometimes difficult to handle,
911. Their subsequent popularity has proved correct with owners
extolling the quality of the ride, performance and ease of
This very striking example presented in Guards Red is one of the
pre-S4 S2s, known as S2.5s, being fitted with the S4 larger brakes
and four piston brake callipers. The suspension has revised
settings, there are uprated shock absorbers, full leather interior
and door crash beams.
This 928 is highly optioned, apart from all the standard
features of the 928 S2, it has impact absorbers front/rear, a
seat-heating system, a limited slip differential, automatic
transmission and a widening of the track gauge on the rear axle
with 21mm spacers inserted. Sports shock absorbers (front/rear) are
fitted with an additional amplifier fitted to the sound system and
an electric sliding sunroof.
Much has been spent on this powerful specimen including a
professional rebuild following a CAT C insurance claim with the
engine and gearbox fully serviced by SCS Porsche in May this year
and a new stainless steel X-Pipe exhaust system fitted.
Earlier servicing covered replacement engine mounts, drive
belts, fuel system, ignition system, engine management system,
cooling system, lubrication service, brakes, replacement alloy
wheels with new tyres, spoiler replacement and, finally, new
carpets and a replacement Pioneer CD/RDS receiver. The end result
is that this fabulous touring car is reported to drive faultlessly
and presents very well for a car that continues to turn heads.
Supplied with all manuals, old MoT test certificates, copy invoices
from SCS Porsche and two keys as well as a current MoT test
certificate valid until 31st May, 2017 and a Certificate of
