Lightweight construction was the most important issue in the construction of the Porsche 928 series produced from model year 1978 in series. Thus, the front fenders and the doors, and the bonnet were made of aluminum instead of sheet steel. The Porsche 928 had round, integrated in the front fenders headlights that were fully electrically folded up. A large glass panel of the boot lid dominated the rounded hatchback.
Models of the Porsche 928 were powered by a water-cooled V8 engine, whose cylinders were arranged at an angle of 90 ° to each other. The displacement increased from initially 4.5 liters to later up to 5.4 liters. The transmission of the driving force was carried out according to the transaxle principle. To improve the aerodynamics, the models received from the year 1979, a front and rear spoiler. The rear axle of the Porsche 928 was a highlight and an absolute novelty. The special feature of the Weissach axle (double wishbone axle) was its track-stabilizing property. This acted like a passive rear wheel steering and was thus a substantial contribution to the active safety of the Porsche 928.
The basic model of the Porsche 928 (1977-1982) has an output of 176 kW (240 hp) and was presented at the “Genfer Auto-Salon” as “The big new sports car from Porsche”. In 1980, the 928 S (1980-1986) was presented at the IAA and was slightly more powerful than the basic model with 228 kW (310 hp). In the Porsche 928 S4 (1987-1991), the engine and bodywork were further improved, reaching a maximum output of 235 kW (320 bhp). With the Porsche 928 GT (1989-1991), a sporty version of this model series was launched on the market. The maximum power of the GT version is 243 kW (330 hp), but the most powerful model of the 928 series was the GTS (1992-1995) with 257 kW (350 hp).
