BELOW IS A BIT OF HISTORY ON THE BELOVED 928 PORSCHE!
The Porsche 928 was a luxury sports-GT car that was sold by Porsche AG of Germany from 1978 to 1995. Originally intended to replace the company's iconic 911. the 928 combined the power. poise. and handling of a sports car with the refinement. comfort. and equipment of a luxury sedan to create what some Porsche executives thought would be a vehicle with wider appeal than the compact. quirky and sometimes difficult 911.
Since its inception in 1949. Porsche has manufactured only seven front-engined models. four of which were coupes. including the 928. The car has the distinction of being the company's only coupe powered by a front-mounted V8 engine. and the company's first mass-produced V8 powered model.
By the late 1960s. Porsche had changed significantly as a company. and executives including owner Ferdinand Porsche were playing with the idea of adding a luxury touring car to the line-up. Managing Director Ernst Fuhrmann was also pressuring Ferdinand to approve development of the new model in light of concerns that the current flagship model at the time. the 911. was quickly reaching its maximum potential where it could soon no longer be improved upon. Slumping sales of the 911 seemed to confirm that the model was approaching the end of its economic life cycle. Fuhrmann envisioned the new range-topping model as being the best possible combination of a sports coupe and a luxury sedan. something well equipped and comfortable enough to be easily driven over long distances that also had the power. poise and handling prowess necessary to be driven like a sports car. This set it apart from the 911. which was a pure sports car.
Early Porsche 928
Ordered by Ferry Porsche to come up with a production-feasible concept for his new model. Fuhrmann initiated a design study in 1971. eventually taking from the process the final specs for the 928. Several drivetrain layouts were considered during early development. including rear and mid-engined designs. but most were dismissed because of technical and/or legislative difficulties. Having the engine. nbsp;transmission. nbsp;catalytic converter(s) and exhaust all cramped into a small rear engine bay made emission and noise control more difficult. something Porsche was already facing problems with on the 911 and wanted to avoid. After deciding that the mid-engine layout didn't allow enough room in the passenger compartment. a front engine/rear wheel drive layout was chosen. Porsche also may have feared that the U. S. government would soon ban the sale of rear-engined cars in response to the consumer concern over safety problems with the rear-engined Chevrolet Corvair. The Corvair's alleged safety issues were detailed in the book Unsafe at Any Speed by consumer advocate Ralph Nader.
Porsche engineers wanted a large-displacement motor to power the 928. and prototype units were built with a 5. 0 L V8 producing close to 300 hp (220 kW). Ferdinand Piëchwanted this car to use a 4. 6 liter V10 with 88 mm bore spacing based upon Audi's five-cylinder engine. This five-cylinder is a derivative of the Volkswagen Golf EA827 engine. basically a four with another cylinder added. Several members of the Porsche board objected; their official objection was because they wanted Porsche AG to maintain some separation from Volkswagen. The possible reason was that they didn't want their crowning car to be powered by a variant of the lowly VW Golf engine. Interestingly. this same proposed engine [albeit with greater displacement] was eventually built and installed in a production sports car—the Lamborghini Gallardo. To this day. no Porsche has ever used an EA827-based engine. Until 2011 they used a version of the VW VR6 engine in the Cayenne . but that motor is not related to the EA827 design.
The resulting M28 engine eventually designed has multiple unusual features. Its bore spacing is 122 mm. almost exactly the same size as a Chrysler 426 hemi or a big block Chevrolet engine. This engine uses thick aluminium cylinder barrels. hence the lower displacement. The engine was designed for air flow first. thus the spark plugs are located top of the head. The four-bolt bearings are massive. and are fed oil via grooves in the bottom surface of the block. The oil and water pumps are powered by the timing belt. and the design of the engine allows for sufficient air flow with a very low hood.
The first two running prototypes of Porsche's M28 V8 used one four-barrel carburetor. but this was just for initial testing. The cars were sold with the planned Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system. When increasing concern within the company over the pricing and availability of fuel during the oil crisis of the 1970s became an issue of contention. smaller engines were considered in the interest of fuel economy. A push began for the development of a 3. 3 L 180 hp (130 kW) powerplant they had drawn up specs for. but company engineers balked at this suggestion. Both sides finally settled on a 4. 5 L. SOHC per bank 16-valve V8 producing 240 PS (180 kW; 240 hp) (219 hp (163 kW) in North America). which they considered to have an acceptable compromise of performance and fuel economy.
The finished car debuted at the 1977 Geneva Motor Show before going on sale later that year as a 1978 model. Although it won early acclaim for its comfort and power. sales were slow. Base prices were much higher than that of the previous rangetopping 911 model and the 928's front-engined. water-cooled design put off many Porsche purists.
Fuhrmann's replacement. Peter Schutz. decided that the models should be sold side by side. feeling that the 911 still had potential in the company's line-up. Legislation against rear-engined vehicles also did not materialize. Although it never sold in the numbers Fuhrmann envisioned. the 928 developed an avid fan following and enjoyed an eighteen-year production run.
The 928 featured a large. front-mounted and water-cooled V8 engine driving the rear wheels. Originally displacing 4. 5 L and featuring a single overhead camshaft design. it produced 219 hp (163 kW/222 PS) for the North American market and 237 hp (176 kW/240 PS) in other markets. Porsche upgraded the engine from mechanical to electronic fuel injection in 1980 for US models. although power remained the same. This design marked a major change in direction for Porsche (started with the introduction of the Porsche 924 in 1976). whose cars had until then used only rear- or mid-mounted air-cooled flat engines with four or six cylinders.
Porsche utilized a transaxle in the 928 to help achieve 50/50 front/rear weight distribution. aiding the car's balance. Although it weighed more than the difficult-to-handle 911. its more neutral weight balance and higher power output gave it similar performance on the track. The 928 was regarded as the more relaxing car to drive at the time. It came with either a five-speed dog leg manual transmission. or a Mercedes-Benz-derived automatic transmission. originally with three speeds. with four-speed from 1983 in North America and 1984 in other markets. More than 80% had the automatic transmission. Exact percentage of manual gearbox cars for entire production run is not known but its believed to be between 15 and 20%.
The body. styled by Wolfgang Möbius under guidance of Anatole Lapine. was mainly galvanized steel. but the doors. front fenders. and hood were aluminium in order to make the car more lightweight. It had a substantialluggage area accessed via a large hatchback. The new polyurethane elastic bumpers were integrated into the nose and tail and covered in body-coloured plastic; an unusual feature for the time that aided the car visually and reduced its drag. Porsche opted not to offer a convertible variant but several aftermarket modifiers offered convertible conversions. most notably Carelli. based in Orange County. CA. The Carelli conversions were sold as complete cars. with the conversion doubling the price of the car. A reported 12 units were made.
The 928 qualified as a 2+2. having two small seats in the rear. Both rear seats could be folded down to enlarge the luggage area. and both the front and rear seats had sun visors for occupants. The rear seats are small (due to the prominent transmission hump) and have very little leg room; they are only suitable for adults on very short trips or children. The 928 was also the first vehicle in which the instrument cluster moved along with the adjustablesteering wheel in order to maintain maximum instrument visibility.
The 928 included several other innovations such as the "Weissach Axle". a simple rear-wheel steering system that provides passive rear-wheel steering to increase stability while braking during a turn. and an unsleeved. silicon alloy engine block made of aluminium. which reduced weight and provided a highly durable cylinder bore.
Porsche's design and development efforts paid off during the 1978 European Car of the Year. 1] where the 928 won ahead of the BMW 7 Series. and the Ford Granada. The 928 is the only sports car so far to have won this competition. where the usual winners are mainstream hatchbacks and sedans/saloons from major European manufacturers. This is regarded as proof of how advanced the 928 was. compared to its contemporaries.
Styling was the same in both 1978 and 1979. with the body lacking both front and rear spoilers. From 1980 (1983 in North America) through 1986. front and rear spoilers were present on "S" models. rear spoilers being integrated into the hatch. From 1987 through 1995. the front spoiler is integrated into the nose and the rear spoiler became a separated wing rather than an integrated piece. and side skirts were added. The rear tail-light configuration was also different from previous versions. GTS models had wider rear fenders added to give more room for 9" wide wheels. Another easily noticeable visual difference between versions is the style of the wheels. Early 928s had 15" or 16" "phone dial"-style wheels. while most 1980s 928s had 16" slotted "flat discs". CSs. SEs and 1989 GTs had 16" "Club Sport" wheels. later GTs had 16" "Design 90" style wheels which were also option on same period S4s. the GTS used two variations of the 17" "CUP" wheels.
