DT: 1987 Porsche 928 S4

Up for auction is this 1987 Porsche 928 S4 finished in Diamond Blue Metallic over a black and tan leather interior.  Signifying a major evolution for the 928 model, the S4 was debuted in 1987 with revised styling, improved brakes, and upgraded engine internals which helped the 5.0L V8 produce up to 320 HP.  Purchased by the seller earlier in 2020, this inaugural model year 1987 example has traveled approximately 400 miles since and has undergone extensive recent maintenance including the replacements of the timing belt, water pump, front brakes, and much more.  A luxurious and powerful grand tourer, this 928 S4 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Maryland accompanied by original books, tools, and a branded title (TMU).

This 928 is finished in Diamond Blue Metallic and the seller notes the car to have been kept in climate-controlled storage under their ownership.  Some minor cosmetic imperfections are depicted in the photo gallery along with a damage-free CARFAX report.  The 928 S4 distinguishes itself from its predecessors with aerodynamically improved bumpers and a rear spoiler.  This example retains factory 16” Manhole Cover wheels and the seller reports that four brand new tires will be installed prior to sale along with a fresh wheel alignment.

Inside this 928, you will find a well-kept black and tan leather interior with power-operated front seats.  A set of black floor mats with red Porsche lettering has been added along with an aftermarket Alpine radio.  All gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional including the A/C system, which was recently serviced and resealed in 2020.  The odometer gear is said to have failed during previous ownership and was recently relpaced by the seller.  It currently reads approximately 20k-miles, and the seller reports the true mileage to be within 1k miles of this figure.

Under the hood is a 5.0L V8 DOHC engine that sends as much as 320 HP to the rear wheels by way of a 4-speed automatic transaxle. Since purchasing the car earlier in 2020, the seller reports that the following items have been replaced:

  • Front brake pads and rotors
  • Pad wear sensors
  • Fuel pressure regulator
  • Timing belt and tensioners
  • Water pump
  • Pulleys 
  • Thermostat and O-rings
  • Power steering hose
  • Fluids and filters
  • Plugs and coils
  • Odometer gear

This sale will include the original owner’s manuals, toolkit, spare tire, a collection of recent maintenance records, and a branded title (TMU).  Offering more power and refinement than its predecessors, the S4 is often referred to as the “sweet spot” in the 928 lineup, do not miss your chance to own this thoroughly serviced 1987 example.

    Thank you uscarrera for your comment. I think it is one of the best color combos Porsche offered. In Maryland the mileage has a letter C behind it. That C designates “not actual mileage”. That is the only thing on the title that is different and makes it what is being called a “Branded Title”. Just meant to notify there is a mileage discrepancy in its past. I will work with PCAR to get a copy of the title posted with my info redacted on Monday. Thanks!!

    This has always been a car I always wanted to own that color combination is the best example of a classic 1987 S4.
    Can you post a picture of the front of the title want to see how Maryland brands a TMU document, it is simply a line item on n titles here in Florida

    I do not have paint meter readings. I can see if I can get them Mon or Tues. the pinstripes are painted on. Thanks

  • DPommery (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Do you have paint meter readings, and are the pinstripes painted or vinyl?

  • carcraze19 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    It was flagged by MVA because plastic odometer gear was stripped, which is a common problem. This diagnosis on the repair order flagged CARFAX hitch was picked up by the MVA. Closest we can tel it was run approx. 300-400 miles before an independent shop repaired the gear. It is working perfectly fine now. The Porsche Dealer wanted an outrageous amount of money to repair the simple issue. Fixed through a 3rd party. This caused it to be “Branded” as “not actual miles”. The discrepancy is minimal but it did happen. Hope this clears it up. Thanks!!

    Why branded title?

  • carcraze19 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Thank you ngamountains. I think it’s a great color combo. Not one you see every day!!

  • ngamountains 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Good morning everyone. Hope you enjoy the auction for the 928S with an Automatic. This is a beautiful example of a 928S. Would be hard to find a nicer car. If possible it is available for inspection. You will see other than a few miles ( I believe 300-400) in discrepancy due to a stripped plastic VDO odometer gear that was repaired this is truly a 21,000 or less mile car. This is a common issue in the 928’s. Please note how clean the original white carpet and interior is in this car. That speaks to the mileage of the car. Please feel free to ask any questions and I will try and respond as detailed as possible. Thanks everyone and Good Luck in Bidding!!!

    Listing doesn't match the car. Says 924 while it's a 928. Picture is an automatic while the listing says manual....
