Offered as the top of Porsche's 928 model line, the “S” version debuted in 1980 featuring a more powerful 4.7-liter V8 engine, improved brakes, forged-aluminum wheels, aerodynamic spoilers, and more luxurious driver amenities. This 1983 example features a rare Kiln Red Metallic finish, protective side moldings, a sunroof, a 4-speed automatic transmission, and more. Initially delivered in Oregon, this 928 has since made its way to California where it is now being offered for auction while showing approximately 71k miles on the odometer.
This example comes finished in Kiln Red Metallic, an extra-cost color option offered between 1983 and 1984. The bodywork highlights pop-up headlights with washers, integrated fog lights, a rear window wiper, S-specific front and rear spoilers, and optional protective side moldings. Factory 16” flat-disc wheels are dressed in Hankook Ventus V2 Concept2 tires from 2022. The seller notes minor paint imperfections, additional images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The Grey Beige leather seats are contrasted by two-tone door panels and a dark brown dashboard. Features include power windows, door locks, and mirrors as well as a power-adjustable driver seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic climate control, cruise control, a cassette stereo, and 928-branded door sills and floor mats. Optional equipment includes a rear leather storage box, an electric sliding roof, and a power-adjustable passenger seat. The seller notes some signs of age throughout the cabin.
Beneath the bonnet lies a 4.7-liter V8 engine distributing up to 234 HP and 263 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 4-speed automatic transmission. Standard performance equipment includes a Weissach rear axle, front and rear stabilizer bars, and 4-wheel vented disc brakes. The seller states that this example has been routinely maintained including oil changes, tune-ups, and repairs, and a belt service was carried out in 2015.
This sale will include a clean title, owner’s manuals, the original window sticker, and some service documentation.
The seller would like you to know: “This very nice 928S came to us from an owner up in OR. The unusual exterior of Kiln Red is one we haven’t seen before, and it complements the lines of the car quite well. It has been well maintained over the years. And a file of extensive service docs and records, including the belt service is included, as well as the owner's manual and original window sticker. It’s a great runner and a lot of fun to drive, so put on those Ray-Bans, pop in a Bob Seger tape, and let’s cruise! And watch out for the U-Boats!”
