This is an outstanding example of an immaculate 928 S, meticulously maintained and absolutely faultless. There are very few of these models on the market without any issues. This needs to be seen to be appreciated. This is fantastic opportunity to own an appreciating piece of history
THE SHORT DESCRIPTION:
This rare 1980’s supercar is presented in great condition. Everything on your service history wish list is already taken care of. It is freshly serviced and has no faults, corrosion or outstanding maintenance requirements.
THE LONG DESCRIPTION:
Deservedly ranked among the world’s finest grand-touring sports cars of the 1980’s, the nine-twenty-eight encapsulates the spirit of Porsche and is an absolute example of their engineering and build quality. In actual fact, many believe the 928 DNA is stronger in the 996/997/991 than that of an air cooled 911!
The 1980-1983 S is my favourite derivative of this mighty and misunderstood sportscar. Why? The answer is quite simple… It is a full-fat 300hp V8 supercar, with all the style and design purity of the original launch model 4.5 including the gorgeous 928-only seats, and the uber-exotic space-age 1970s exterior, but with better brakes, handling and of course - lots more power.
More importantly, all the fuss and complication of the later (S2 on) models is absent enabling the owner to carry out most fault-finding and maintenance tasks with a very basic set of tools. The highly robust Bosch CIS LH-Jetronic injection system is without ECUs or complex electronics and the 3-speed automatic gearbox is strong and confidence-inspiring. Speaking of which, that long-legged first gear makes driving a joy – Unlike the stifled later cars which pull away in second gear, the S is highly responsive with immediate power delivery and a great kickdown!
This 928 S is the best I have had the pleasure of owning, it is extremely well-preserved and is in great original condition.

Interior: Navy leather, with Navy vinyl headlining/dash and Navy deep-pile carpets
Wheels and Tyres 16” 8J “Flat Disc” all round light alloy wheels with brand new Tyres all round (<500 miles)

These 928 drives accentually well, with very good road holding which these cars are renown for. There are absolutely no engine faults, gearbox faults or other mechanical faults. Suspension and geometry are excellent. The ride quality is excellent and accurate with good driver feedback. The Steering is precise with no play or vibration.
Brand new tyres all round.
Brand new heavy-duty Bosch battery (OE Specification).
“No expense spared” service in March 2017 using Valvoline VR1 20w50 oil (as recommended by any 928 specialist) Service included Bosch WR7DC plugs, new fuel filter, distributor cap, rotor arm, air filter and fuel filter. Shift pressure checked and kickdown cable adjusted correctly. On top of this the CIS injection system has a full health check and the timing and fuel/air mix was adjusted accordingly. Finally, all grounds were cleaned and the throttle cable and linkage were adjusted and lubricated.
Excellent oil pressure: 5 under load and 3 at hot idle. No temperature faults. No strange noises. Fans operate correctly. Gearbox very strong and super smooth with no slipping, clunking, hunting and so on.
The car brakes very well with no judder or noises.
New Brake Pad sensors
New front Track Rod ends
ELECTRICS (Usually a sore-subject!)
These cars have a reputation for poor electrics. In reality the wiring is very robust and over-engineered just like the rest of the 928. Most issues are usually attributed to poor repairs, corrosion and bad grounds. There are no electrical issues here due to careful servicing and regular use.
Recent work carried out to the electric system includes:
New Fuel Pump Relay
All ground points checked, cleaned and treated.
Fuse box cover complete with fuse/relay chart.
Jump post shield and retaining nut in engine bay present and in good order, protecting the main engine harness connector from contaminants.
New bulbs all round.
Dashboard bulbs replaced. Fully working (as shown in pictures)
Working cruise control.
No HVAC issues, all controls work exactly as they should unlike most 928’s! The automatic temperature control holds its requested temperature with minimal drift and the cockpit is always comfortable regardless of weather conditions.
Electric mirrors and sunroof all operate smoothly with no issues.
Wiper operation perfect.
Rheostat for instrument cluster brightness attenuation operates smoothly with no issues.
All locks as per original specification with no faults. All locks/ignition work with the same key.
No battery drains issues.
Speaker fader/balance near hand brake lever fully working.
Bodywork is in superb order; the car has just benefitted from a full glass out respray (April 2018). This is a top-class job. I am very particular about the paintwork therefore I visited numerous classic car paint experts before choosing this paintjob. This is likely to be one the best presented 928’s on the market. There is no hidden damage or rust which can be confirmed with the photo history available on request. This included £1000s worth of genuine Porsche parts (purchased from OPC Leicester, all invoices included) – Every rubber, seal, clip, screw and anything else which bolts onto the outside of the car is BRAND NEW and GENUINE PORSCHE.
I had the car resprayed because the original paint was painted over with black during its life. There is no previous damage or any other unsavoury secrets. Just wanted to go back to original standard.
All four wheels are newly refurbished and polished like mirror and are looking stunning. Can supply the original wheels if need to swap them over. I personally like 8" all round.
The paintwork is in the original colour tint and has been sympathetically applied as per original Porsche specification. This includes stone-chip line and PU coding. All rubbing strips have been removed. My opinion is the car looks better without them so I had the holes welded and got rid of them! (Photos available)
Lock surrounds are all very presentable with no chips or damage, as are all window trims.
Front lower chin spoiler present and in very good condition.
All splash guards fitted correctly using brand new galvanised bolts.
All panels are very straight with no dinks/dents or damage. There is NO FILLER in this car.
The panel gaps are mighty-fine, exactly what you’d expect to see on a well sorted 928!
The car has been professionally polished and as you will see in the photos the paintwork is even, clean and healthy with a fantastic lustre.
Glass all round is in good condition, and all rubbers are new. Rear spoiler has no cracks or damage.
No corrosion externally, internally or underneath.
The inside of this car is among the finest unrestored 928 interiors of this age I have seen. It is highly original.
Super-soft early style tombstone seats are in great condition with lovely buttery leather and superb worn-in patina with no deformation, rips or wear.
Electric seat operation is smooth and silent both sides.
Carpets all superb. All are extremely clean with no damage to the backing, including the boot carpet. If you know your 928s you’ll know how rare this is!
No ill-fitting door panels (very common), everything is lovely and sharp looking and the doors shut with a rock-solid thunk as they should
Nothing rattles or squeaks
New Porsche OE gas struts for hood and tailgate fitted at time of paint restoration.
Headlining and sunroof motor panel perfect.
Indicator/Cruise/Computer/Wash Wipe stalks all have lovely rich unfaded text on them, a good reflection of the general condition of the vehicle.
The interior is clean and dry with no signs of dampness and no unpleasant odour, that said it has the signature 928 scent of rich leather and general 80’s-ness!
The car also has the original tool kit. Jack and sock and safety warning triangle. It even comes with the original space-saver spare.
INCLUDED IN SALE:
Service and Maintenance book

The car has a full MOT and has just passed.
I have a comprehensive photo history of this vehicle unfortunately I cannot display them all in this advert. I am happy to share these with you together with any videos if needed

This car is ready to be marketed by a specialist garage or used as a fantastic investment opportunity or toy for a private buyer.
Needless to say, viewings are welcome and encouraged. I am based in North Leicestershire.
