Up for auction is this nicely appointed 1984 Porsche 928S finished in Ruby Red Metallic over a Grey Beige leather interior. This luxurious V8-powered grand tourer was originally delivered in Massachusetts and is said to have spent time in California and the southern United States before it was recently acquired by its seller in Arizona. Highlighting an eye-catching color combination, a desirable 5-speed manual transaxle, and a considerable amount of maintenance carried out in recent years, this 928S is now being offered for auction in excellent running order with approximately 86k miles showing on the odometer.
This 928S is presented in its factory original color of Ruby Red Metallic (L810/X7) and the paint is said to be in very nice condition overall with only minor imperfections noted along the edges of the doors, hood and lower bumpers. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX. Paint-depth readings taken by the seller also suggest the car to have been likely refinished at some point during its life. A later-model S4 spoiler has been added and this example rides on factory 16” flat-dish “manhole cover” wheels in a custom chrome finish. New General G-Max tires have been installed within the last 4 years.
Inside, you will find an attractive Grey Beige leather interior that is said to remain in excellent highly original condition. The dashboard is free of cracks, although there is some very mild warping around one of the defroster vents. An aftermarket JVC radio has been installed along with upgraded speakers. The sunroof is operational, however, the seller notes that it will only open about 1”. It was also noted that the cigarette lighter functions as an electrical outlet, but that the heating element itself does not work. All other gauges and accessories are said to be functioning properly aside from the trip odometer.
This U.S.-market 928S is equipped with a fuel-injected 4.7 L V8 engine that sends 234 HP to the rear wheels through a sought after 5-speed manual transaxle. The 928 model is notable for its impressive 50/50 weight distribution and innovative "Weissach Axle" that enables passive rear-wheel steering. This example is reported to be in strong running order and service records dating back to 2017 show the following maintenance items to have been carried out:
There is no record of a timing belt service, although the seller has offered to provide one to the next owner at an additional cost of $900.
This sale will include service records and a clean title. Beautifully configured and well-presented, this 928S offers an excellent opportunity for any transaxle Porsche enthusiast.
