Up for auction is this 2-owner 1988 Porsche 928 S4 finished in Guards Red over a Black and Beige leather interior. Denoting the final iteration of the Porsche 928, the S4 was debuted with revised bodywork, a rear spoiler, and an improved V8 engine with a 5.0L displacement and 4 valves per cylinder. Purchased by its seller in Texas from its original owner in 1992, this 5-speed 1988 example is said to have been kept in excellent condition over the years with approximately 75k miles now showing on the odometer. Previously listed on PCARMARKET, this 928 is now being offered once more as the initial transaction could not be completed in an agreed-upon timeframe.
Reported to have always been garage-kept and covered, the Guards Red finish on this 928 is said to be all-original and in very nice condition. A couple of small dings have been indicated on the front hood and rear driver’s side quarter panel (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). This S4 can be distinguished from previous variants by its aerodynamically improved nose and fixed black polyurethane rear spoiler. This example retains its factory equipped “Manhole Cover” wheels which are dressed in older Kumho tires exhibiting ample tread life.
This luxury grand tourer features an accommodating Beige leather interior which is said to be in great shape aside from some minor wear on the driver’s seat. An aftermarket Sony radio has been installed along with upgraded speakers, although the stock speaker grilles have been kept helping maintain an original appearance. The digital clock and interior rear hatch release are nonfunctional; however, the seller confirms all other gauges and accessories to be working properly. The air conditioning has also been serviced with a new compressor, dryer, and expansion valve.
This S4 is powered by a DOHC 4-valve per cylinder 5.0 L V8 engine which is mated to a desirable 5-speed manual transaxle. 320 HP is sent to the rear wheels providing for a 0-60 time of approximately 5.5 seconds and a top speed north of 160 MPH. Proper routine maintenance has been carried out including the following items over the past 25 years amounting to approximately $20,000 in service.
Items included in this sale are the original books, tools, jack, air compressor and spare tire, 1 master key, and a car cover. This stunning S4 is just waiting to be enjoyed by a new caretaker, do not miss out.
