1979 Porsche 928 Coupé in Petrol Blue for sale!

Everyone always talks about the immortal character of the iconic Porsche 911. But let’s not forget the rock-solid DNA of its GT brother: the Porsche 928. This model may be the far-reaching evolution of ‘der Elfer’ missed out, the primal powers of this classic are just as impressive. In addition, the V8-powered Porsche was ahead of its time. That is why we immediately bought 2 at the same time at Prins when we got the chance. This car has the original paint color called Petrolblau and has a reupholstered interior. And the other 928? It has already been sold…

History

In addition to 2x a 928, the collector from whom we bought the Porsches owned a 911 Carrera 3.0 and an original Abarth. Enthusiasts buy enthusiasts cars, it is sometimes said. This must have been a real connoisseur, since the Porsche 928 is one of the most underrated sports cars of the last century. Unjustified, as far as we are concerned.
This copy started its career in Austria, Vienna to be precise. There it was owned by Mrs. Nora Schmid. Via the renowned German Porsche specialist Georg Konradsheim, the 928 ended up in the hands of its former owner. Konradsheim is responsible for various restoration work inside + outside and is generally known for having a unique collection of Porsches. For that last reason alone, the 928 must have felt at home there …

Interior & exterior

With its extended roofline and many glassware, the Porsche 928 makes a more stretched impression than the 911 at first sight. The 1st series, which includes this copy, is distinguished by its slimmer bumpers and narrower, deeper located eight-light units. The pop-up headlights remained intact over the years; why would you also change such a unique gadget? Unlike on other cars, these lamps also keep staring at you in ‘closed’ condition, because they close backwards instead of forward.
The 5-hole rims are completely time-correct and the beautiful Petrol Blue bodywork is also very original. Atlhans, in terms of color. After all, the paintwork was completely repainted by Georg Konradsheim. Inside, the specialist interfered further with the decoration: the black leather 2 + 2 interior has been completely reupholstered and that has been done in a beautiful, Porsche-worthy way.

Options & extras

Before highlighting the advanced technology under the hood, please draw your attention to the many other details that confirm that the Porsche 928 was a car ‘of the future’. And is. With factory options such as a limited slip differential, tinted glass, Climate Control, preparation for the car phone including antenna and an electrically operated sliding roof, the luxury grand tourer can still measure itself in many ways with the modern machines of this world. Whose deed.

Technology & performance

Old 911 servants swear by an air-cooled boxer engine, but this 928 was already water-cooled in the 1970s. In short, completely contemporary. In any case, the configuration cannot be compared with that of ‘der Elfer’: the thick 8-cylinder is located in the front and measures a volume of no less than 4.5 liters. Without the help of turbos, the V8 manages to kick up to 240 hp. All horses are sent to the rear axle. If you operate the manual gear perfectly, you can accelerate from a standstill past 100 km / h in 6.8 seconds. The top speed of 230 km / h is also a reason to try a bit of the Autobahn. This classic Porsche GT has clearly not forgotten its tricks. Fortunately…

With kind regards,
Prins Classics
