Designated as the flagship model in its class between 1980 and 1986, the Porsche 928 S featured a range of enhancements over the standard 928 including front and rear spoilers, improved brakes, and a more powerful V8 engine. This final-year example comes finished in Black over matching leather upholstery and features a rare 5-speed manual transmission. It was further optioned with increased air conditioning, a limited-slip differential, heated seats, and more. It is now being offered for auction at no reserve by its seller out of Rhode Island.
Compared to an entry-level 928, the “S” model could be distinguished by its black polyurethane front and rear spoilers as well as body-colored side moldings. This 1986 example comes finished in Black and rides on factory 16” forged aluminum slotted disc wheels dressed in Goodyear Eagle tires from 2012. The front-end body panels are said to have been replaced in 1990 followed by complete exterior repaint in 1998. The seller notes the lower front air dam is missing, slight paint cracking is present on the seam of the driver-side quarter and rear bumper panel, and some surface rust is visible on the passenger-side door jamb. Additional images are provided in the gallery along with a CARFAX report showing minor damage in August 2008 and July 2020.
The cabin is appointed with black partial leather upholstery and features an electric sunroof, a raised steering wheel hub, heated power seats, and increased rear seat air conditioning. The seller notes some holes are present in the driver’s seat along with some wear on the driver’s side carpeting. All gauges, electronics, and accessories are reported to be working properly except for the odometer. The car's total mileage is unknown.
A naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 engine delivers up to 288 HP and 302 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transaxle. Stopping power comes from fixed 4-piston brakes and ventilated discs at each corner. The seller states there are currently no outstanding maintenance items.
This sale will include a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for visiting this auction. This vehicle has been a pleasure to drive for all these years. I cannot drive it anymore because of a stroke. All required maintenance has been done within the mileage specifications. The vehicle has been maintained by a Porsche mechanic.”
