The 928 series was developed as a luxury GT with a completely different character from the 911 series, which was the mainstay of the brand, while it was clearly on top of that in terms of vehicle status.
It's a completely different path from the 911 Porsche when it comes to front engine rear drive 2 door 4 seater coupe instead of RR. In addition, the engine is a newly developed V8, not a horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine. It was an authentic FR Granturesmo with a transaxle type mission.
He made his debut in 77. Without radically changing the basic concept, approximately 61000 units were produced over 95 years until 18. In the meantime, the V8 engine has evolved from the original 4.5 liter SOHC to 4.7 liter SOHC (S series and S2 series), 5 liter DOHC (S2 series, S4 series, GT), and 5.4 liter DOHC (GTS). The maximum output went from 240 ps to 350 ps, and he continued to dominate the fast tourer, adding styles and other improvements for each series.
It was overshadowed by the greatness of the 911 series, by no successors being built, and along with other ambitious projects, the Midship 914, and the FR Mini Sport 924 & 944, it was one of many failures for Porsche, but the fact that it had been built for 18 years also testified to the fact that there were many customers who understood its true value, and that it was a GT car with such advanced design and mechanism. For the moment, the modern panamera may be what Porsche wanted to accomplish in his 928 s. In fact, the 928 series also had a 4 door prototype called the H 50.
This is an excellent performance for a GT car at that time. There are a lot of things to see, such as the high stability and comfortable ride that are well accepted even today, and the surprisingly light handling. It is now starting to be reevaluated, and it is almost time for the last chance to buy it, partly because there are fewer and better individuals.

Since it's a 91 model, it was produced almost at the end of S4, which is the most popular in the series. It's a dealer car, and the maintenance record of the famous factory as well as the instruction manual is well preserved.
The distance of the odometer is a little more than 66000 kilometers, which is not so small, but if you think that it is about 30 years old, it would be little, and more importantly, the condition of the inside and the outside would have kept it at about 30,000 kilometers.
especially interior. It looks really beautiful as the current owner makes frequent repairs. There are some scratches, aging deterioration, and mohr floating on the exterior, but it is in a beautiful condition compared to the existing 928 S4.
You cannot overlook the fact that water and air circulation are thoroughly maintained. In other words, it is an individual that has been properly maintained on the premise that it can be used on a daily basis. The dampers are a little rough, but if you finish the reed part well, it will surely become a wonderful individual.
