Porsche 928 for sale
Porsche is an automobile manufacturer known for its high-performance sports cars, specifically the infamous Porsche 911 which is celebrated by car enthusiasts globally. It may come as a surprise that at one time Porsche intended to replace the Porsche 911 with a new badge. Aiming to amalgamate the power and poise of their most popular sports car with the comfort and refinement of a luxury car, the company released the Porsche 928 in 1977. As the company’s new flagship car, the hope was that the Porsche 928 would have a broader appeal than the compact coupe.
Defining features of the Porsche 928
With the growing concern of the 1970s oil crisis, Porsche wanted to release a more economic grand tourer in their lineup. A vehicle with a more conventional engine than their high-performance vehicles was needed, and the Porsche 928 was born. The car earned the company a reasonable market share by offering new features like a front-mounted V8 engine and set the stage for Porsche's illustrious history.
Porsche 928 through the years
The Porsche 928 was an instant success offering advanced design upon its introduction in the late 70s. By the 80s, front and rear spoilers appeared on the Porsche 928, with the new version also offering wider wheels. In 1985, the vehicle received some serious upgrades under the hood and within the interior. By the end of the 80s, the Porsche 928 began to shift to digital with a new onboard trip computer. And in the early 90s, the final version of the Porsche 928 was again upgraded. Unfortunately, the final price tag was too high for the average Porsche driver, leading to the car's eventual discontinuation.
