30k-Mile One-Owner 1984 Porsche 928 S

Up for auction is this one-owner 1984 Porsche 928 S finished in Grand Prix White over a rare CanCan Red leather interior.  Built in November of 1984, this luxurious grand tourer was sold new in February of 1985 to its original owner, a World War II Navy veteran living in Alabama.  The car would remain under the care of its original owner up until his passing in 2018, before being acquired by the selling dealer in 2020.  This beautifully appointed 1984 example has accumulated just over 30k miles from new and comes complete with the original owner’s manuals, toolkit, and a collection of maintenance records.  Boasting low mileage, a clean one-owner history, and an impeccable color combination, this 928 S is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Tennessee.

This 928 S is finished in Grand Prix White and features distinctive pop-up headlights, black rubber front and rear spoilers, a rear window wiper, and optional body-colored side moldings as well as factory 16” flat-dish “manhole cover” wheels.  The seller notes some minor dimples on the hood and roof as well as an area of distortion depicted behind the passenger side rear wheel, detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. The Michelin tires are also recommended for replacement due to age.

Inside, you will find a vibrant CanCan Red leather interior with a black dashboard and decorative seat piping.  Factory options include a sound system, additional amplifier, alarm system, and power sunroof.  The dashboard is described to have been kept in good condition, and there is a bit of distortion noted in the upholstery on the passenger side of the luggage compartment.  An aftermarket stereo has been installed and all gauges and accessories are said to be functional apart from the rear hatch release, power antenna, and air conditioning system.

Compared with the original 928 model, the 928 S features a revised V8 engine with a higher displacement of 4.7L resulting in an output of 234 HP. The rear wheels are driven through a 4-speed automatic transaxle which provides for effortless high-speed cruising.  The 928 model is notable for its impressive 50/50 weight distribution and innovative "Weissach Axle" that enables passive rear-wheel steering. The seller states that given the low miles, most service records reflect standard maintenance such as fluid changes, tires, and batteries. The car is due for a timing belt replacement and a new timing belt will accompany the sale along with rollers and a tensioner set.  The undercarriage is also said to present very well, retaining much of the factory-applied Cosmoline coating.

This sale will include the original owner's manuals, original air compressor, customer identification card, toolkit, spare tire, some service records, and a clean title. With its outstanding one-owner history and fantastic color combination, this low-mileage 928 S is ready to begin its journey with a new caretaker.

    @Dundertaker CORRECTION: The spot is on the Driverside rear seat.

    I inspected the car in person for a 928OC Friend. It is as represented. Good unmolested car. The minor flaws of a 37-year-old car are not understated and all seem to be as described. The car show well and the paint looks to even have the original orange peel (it's not been corrected/over corrected, etc) . The car is in the same spot as the start-up video on their showroom floor and there were no signs of leaks or drips. There is the "to be expected" films and build-up from seeping/weeping, but nothing that isn't normal. It appears to be as original as it gets motor-wise. The interior looks great, but I suspect it's been touched up or re-died, but while not perfect, it's in good shape, no major pops in the seats (pleating typically goes on the early style seats) and the passenger rear "spot" looks like a chemical removed some of the dye/finish...easy to fix...and most wouldn't bother. There are several spots of hail damage and I'd say a few days with a good PDR firm would make it perfect. They are not noticeable until you get right on the car, but i'd want them fixed and they seem to be "fixable" i.e. no hard-edged dings or pops, no paint damage. Everything else the seller has disclosed was spot on and accurate.

    It's a good car that will need tires and service caught up to be enjoyed safely. I own an 83, 85, and 86.5 and do all my all work. Nothing here you can't do from Jackstands with the parts and a WSM that I can tell. If I were in the market for an 84' this would be a great option.

    @Carpitect Everything about this car is a testament to the care bestowed upon it since new.

    It has all original paint and this is demonstrated in the numerous paint meter photos. Paint is glossy and smooth. Any imperfections are noted in the description.

    There is no corrosion.

    Please note the undercarriage pictures. Nothing here was cleaned prior to photography. This is just a clean, dry, well care for car.

  • Carpitect (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 1 dayago

    Is paint original, any past body work, any areas that are, chipped, scratched, dented, and or signs of corrosion? Please add photos or forward.

    The car was purchased new in Alabama. The owner moved to Mississippi in 1996. That is why Carfax shows the car in Mississippi from 1996 onward. He worked for RCA and then later GE. He was assigned to Ingalls Shipbuilding in Pascagoula, Mississippi and was a manager of the AEGIS weapon system development team.

    @JNasty Good morning. There are registration slips, insurance correspondence and another item or two going back to the first days of this car all in the original owner's name. Unfortunately I do not have the original window sticker. There are a few service and maintenance records but they are all for minor items such as tires, batteries etc. There is no receipt for previous timing belt service which is why I say it is due and have included a new TB service kit.

  • JNasty (registered bidder) 2 weeks, 6 daysago

    @seller - service records? Sales records? When was the last TB and WP service etc.? Thanks.
