Offered for sale is our beautiful. 33. 00 original mile. mechanically strong. well maintained. two owner 1987 Porsche 928 S4. finished in its original and ceaselessly tasteful Marine Blue Metallic over Grey leather with offsetting Blue interior panels and carpets. Ordered new by its original owner from Brian Harris Porsche in Baton Rouge. Louisiana. he would own the car for until 1994. when he sold it to a local business acquaintance. The second owner had known of the car from new. and the car joined his humble collection. In the nearly twenty years he owned the car. he rarely put many miles it. and consequently the original 33k miles showing on the odometer is correct and documentable via Carfax and the car's stamped service booklet.

When the 928 first hit the showroom floor. it was absolutely the car to have. As Porsche's first seriously expensive GT car. the 928 drew the ire of Porsche enthusiasts worldwide upon its announcement. But as soon as they realized it wasn't built to replace the beloved 911 (just to compliment it in an enthusiast's garage). opinions changed. A big V8 Autobahn bomber. the 928 was far more civilized than the 911. boasting big comfortable seats. power everything. usually an automatic transmission and all the Star Wars/Reagan era futuristic design elements that a successful 1980's man could ask for. From Cannes to Beverly Hills. if you were somebody you would have walked into a dealership and bought a 928 S4. Whether making a vacation trip from Milan to Monaco or Los Angeles to San Francisco on business. the 928 was (and arguably still could be). the car of choice. providing a wonderful drive quality without frustrating your wife. It's a true GT cruiser; extremely comfortable with a V8 that has great torque. making smooth. enjoyable driving effortless. Furthermore. in following with Porsche's legendary legacy. the handling is great and the looks are timeless.

The Marine Blue Metallic finish is completely original and in excellent condition. deep. lustrous and marred only by the most negligible of imperfections. none of which are significant enough to register in the pictures. The car's body is entirely straight. free of dings or evidence of body work. and all of the panel fits and gaps are consistent and factory correct. The glass and rubber is excellent original shape. as are the original alloy wheels. The car's interior is equally as clean. the navy leather seats and carpets showing only negligible wear consistent with a well looked after. low mileage car. The power sunroof. power seats. power windows. power rear hatch locking device and all of the other electronics work exactly as they should. and the car retains its original. functional Blaupunkt radio. For that matter. everything on the car is stock – it hasn't been modified in any way.

The car is also excellent mechanically. feeling like a tight. well maintained. 33k mile example should. Despite its low miles. the car was always regularly driven. always garaged and serviced primarily at the Porsche dealership. It starts effortlessly. producing a low rumble to announce its 316hp 5. 0L V8. It's smooth through all of the gears. pulling with incredible force when asked. With its quiet cabin and even drive quality. it's very easy to look down at your gauges on the freeway and realize you're doing 95mph when you assumed you were only a hair over 70. Despite the fact it's a front engine V8. it's still a Porsche and it performs with poise in the canyons as well as on the freeway.

This is an excellent opportunity at one of the finest. lowest mileage 928s on the market. With vintage Porsches appreciating faster than any other marque (save for Ferrari). the outlandish numbers that 356s and 911s have been realizing have made the 928 a legitimate and unique collector's car. Tasteful colors. excellent condition. low miles. 5. 0L engine. clean history – if you've been looking for one. it would be hard to find a better example.

We try to give accurate descriptions of the cars we're selling. but we're enthusiasts. not experts. and we encourage and are happy to help facilitate personal or professional inspections. But please do so before bidding. as the alternative harms our ability to make sales to other interested parties who have done their proper due diligence before bidding.
