This is a 1985 Porsche 928S finished in Granatrot Metallic (paint code #M3Y) over a Champagne beige leather interior. This 2-door luxury grand tourer is powered by a 5.0-liter V8 mated to a 5-speed manual transaxle. The German manufacturer created the Porsche 928S in the hopes of realizing a new flagship car capable of reaching the popularity of the 911 in its heyday - with the power of a sports car but the comfort of a sedan. The 928 had a very successful 17-year run. This 928S is currently registered in Quebec with apx. 100K-kms reading on the odometer. 


For US bidders, this Porsche 928S is directly importable without modification as it is EPA & DOT exempt being greater than 25 years old. For more information on transport/import please visit our Transport/Import page here.



The 928S has a low, wide, futuristic design, with pop-up headlamps integrated into the front wings inspired by the Lamborghini Miura. Its doors, hood, and front fenders are made of aluminium to save weight, and bumpers are made from polyurethane to create an aerodynamically efficient shape. The rest of the car’s characteristic body is made of galvanised steel, with a hatchback constructed mainly of rear window glass. A radio antenna and wiper are fitted into the rear window. On the “S” designated cars, spoilers are fitted at both ends with an air dam aiding aerodynamics at the front. Porsche is embossed at the back between the bar-style tail lights, and bumper guards frame the licence plate housing. Dual exhaust tips protrude at an angle behind the left rear wheel. This 928S rides on 16” flat dish wheels, with Cooper Cobra Radial GTZ tires, 225/55ZR16 all around. Stopping power is provided by ventilated disc brakes with floating 1-piston callipers at all four corners. The Porsche 928S is 176 inches long, 51 inches high, and 72 inches wide with a 98 inch wheelbase and a curb weight of 3,351 lbs. 



Inside, seating is 2+2 in Champagne beige leather, with the back seats folding down for increased luggage storage. The front sport seats are power adjustable, and the windows and exterior mirrors are also powered. This 928 comes with a sunroof, and has a leather-wrapped shifter. The 928S is equipped with Bosch EZF ignition. Controls for the air conditioning are found above a Panasonic CD player wired to JBL speakers and a digital clock. Large Porsche crests are found on the door panels next to the speakers. Drivers of the 928 are treated to not only a tilt steering wheel, but also a tilting instrument cluster, a first for any manufacturer.


The four-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel fronts an analog instrument cluster with a 270 km/hr speedometer to the left and a 7K redline tachometer to the right, with auxiliary gauges surrounding. 



The RWD 1985 Porsche 928S is powered by a 5.0-liter DOHC V8 with 4 valves per cylinder. This all-aluminium Bosch LH-Jetronic fuel injected V8 is mated to a 5-speed manual BorgWarner transaxle and produces 288 horsepower at 5,750 rpm and 302 lb-ft of torque at 2,700 rpm when new. It has a claimed top speed and zero-to-60 mph of 155 mph and 6.6 seconds, respectively. The 928 is distinctive in the Porsche lineup being the firm’s first V8-powered model, and their only coupe to date with a front-mounted water-cooled V8. Only 15-20% of 928’s produced have a manual transmission. The car has a near perfect weight distribution, at 51/49 front to rear. Porsche developed the “Weissach Axle '' for the 928, a multi link suspension system that minimises oversteer and optimises handling. The 928S is further equipped with sport springs and Bilstein shock absorbers.
