1979 Porsche 928 5-Speed

Up for auction is this 1979 Porsche 928 finished in Mocha Brown over a brown leather interior.  This legendary V8-powered grand tourer is equipped with a 5-speed manual transaxle and is said to have been purchased by the seller from the original owner’s estate early in 2020.  The car is said to have been garage-kept throughout its life and the seller has since carried out some noteworthy recent maintenance including a new timing belt, water pump, the replacements of various seals, and a full service.  This 928 is now being offered out of California with approximately 58k miles showing on the odometer.

The Mocha Brown paint is said to be in great shape, reflecting a lifetime of proper care (images are provided in the photo gallery).  This 928 features front fog lights, pop-up headlights, a rear window wiper, and 16” Manhole Cover wheels in chrome.  New Toyo Proxes T1R tires are said to have been installed in April of 2020.


Inside, the cabin is appointed with brown leather and matching carpets.  Creature comforts include air conditioning as well as power-operated seats, windows, and locks.  An aftermarket Sony radio has been installed and the seller reports all gauges and accessories to be fully functional.

The robust 4.5 L V8 engine sends 219 HP and 245 lb.-ft of torque to the rear wheels by way of a desirable 5-speed manual transaxle.  Some service records are included from the previous ownership.  Since the seller’s purchase in 2020, a full fluid and filter service was performed and the following items are said to have been addressed to ensure excellent mechanical order:

  • Timing Belt
  • Tensioner and Idler Pulleys
  • Fuel Pump
  • Water Pump
  • Oil Pump Seal
  • Camshaft Seals
  • Crankshaft Seal
  • CV Boots

    @MarkFaris yes the airconditioner works !?

  • MarkFaris (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    928s sometimes have problems with the air conditioning. Living in California you may not use it much so is the air conditioning working well? I read through everything and didn’t see any references to it.

    @Stryker14 , disregard my question, I was thinking of the tobacco color, mocha is much darker.

  • Stryker14 1 month, 2 weeksago

    I love these 928s. I remember mocha being much lighter brown, chocolate color. Seller is this mocha with the lighting in the pictures making the color appear much darker? It almost looks black. Or is this a different color? Thanks, GLWS.

    @Kpritchard The clutch is original. There is absolutely no slop in shifter and transmission shift smooth and quiet. The car drives like iits new. It feels tight and firm but smooth. No rattles shimmies or odd noises. Truly nice experience. Pull from engine is great. Car just wants to go...@Kpritchard

    ‘’The Mocha Brown paint is said to be in great shape,‘’
    My point...
    Regarding the condition of the car the above quote is all that is mentioned. All the writings about what 928’s are is superfluous.

  • rsabeebe (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    darkest shade of mocha brown i have ever seen...

  • SkyRanch (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Dealer used a paint depth gauge by the way

  • SkyRanch (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @LongwoodCharger No accidents or paint work. All original. I will get those pics today for you. I don't know about doing a driving video but will try. Car was shown to a dealer who went around the car and agreed that there was no signs of damage repair and paint is original.
    There is absolutely no rust. The original owner was a friend since the mid 90s and he always kept car garaged and covered.Check later for pics

  • LongwoodCharger (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    any driving videos available?
    can you provide closeups to the rear quarter panels underneath the windows on the exterior?
    any accidents or body/paint work done?

    @Quincydubois That comment then leaves the question. What is your point? How or what info is missing in your opinion? Please try to be less vague then your first comment.

  • Quincydubois (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Most remarkable is how little condItion information pcarmarket includes in it’s listings.

  • SkyRanch (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    If you have any questions please feel free to ask and I will do my best to answer them as quick as I can.
