We are pleased to present the Spyder 928 by Wingho Auto Classique Inc. Developed by Dr. Clyde Kwok, founder of Wingho Auto and professor of aerodynamics and mechanical engineering, the Spyder 928 is a handmade aluminum/steel-bodied sports car designed to capture the spirit of Porsche’s original Speedster combined with the well-balanced modern platform of the 928 grand tourer. Following the development of the prototype version which was featured in many automotive publications including European Car, Exotic Cars, and Motor Magazine, this project was commenced in 1995 and completed after two and a half years by skilled craftsmen in Quebec. It retains the original chassis and 4.5L V8 engine from a 1982 Porsche 928 with a 5-speed manual transaxle sending power to the rear wheels. Painstakingly crafted and carefully engineered, this full-production version Spyder 928 is now being offered for auction by Wingho Auto Classique out of Montreal, Canada.
The original bodywork and glass of the 1982 928 were removed and replaced with handcrafted panels finished in Porsche Silver Metallic. The front fenders, rear quarters, bumpers, and door shells are constructed from steel while the hood and trunk lid were made from aluminum. The original dimensions and wheelbase for the 928 chassis have been retained. The simple and aerodynamically effective styling includes a low-profile wraparound windscreen, a roll-over hoop, streamlined mirrors, and a front fascia with integrated lighting and air ducts. The Spyder 928 rides on aluminum 17” MOMO wheels dressed in Pirelli P Zero tires.
The cabin of the Spyder 928 echoes the classic layout of early Porsche Speedster models. The driver and passenger are situated within supportive MOMO Corse bucket seats with safety harnesses. The body-colored dashboard blends seamlessly into the center console which houses a custom-designed short shifter assembly. The smooth contoured inner door panels are recessed with a single grab handle and internal latch mechanism. A three-spoke MOMO steering wheel sits ahead of a 928 instrument cluster with an odometer reading just over 400 miles.
This Spyder carries the same 4.5L aluminum V8 engine from the 1982 Porsche 928 it was built upon. The engine has been gone through and the heads were ported and polished for improved performance. The rear wheels are driven through a Porsche 928 5-speed manual transaxle. The brakes and suspension were also carried over from the 928 and paired with a custom front sway bar for improved handling. All routine service has been kept up to date by Wingho Auto Classique and the car has been fully prepared for its next owner.
This sale will include a scale model and a clean title. Offering the power and refinement of the Porsche 928 coupled with a lightweight and visceral Speedster-style layout, this incredibly unique hand-built custom vehicle was designed to please the most discerning driving purists. Do not miss out on this very special opportunity.
