Rare 1980 Porsche 928 Import
Up for sale today in our Redwood City showroom is this 1980 Porsche 928 two door coupe with fresh black paint and a matching black interior.
This desirable sports car was imported from Europe and it features a powerful 4.5L V-8 engine under the hood with a 5-speed manual transmission. It also comes nicely equipped for everyday driving and this sporty classic has a mere 91,534 original miles showing on the odometer.
European Built w/ Only 91,534 Original Miles
The current owner of this 1980 Porsche 928 had it imported from Europe with plans of fully restoring it. Instead, he only managed to repaint the vehicle and get it in excellent mechanical condition before moving onto another project. This beauty is still ready for the open road with a completely original interior and smooth, straight body lines. It performs very nicely as well with excellent acceleration and handling. The car got a brand new timing belt and windshield before being put up for sale.
For those that don't know the difference between the US and EU models, the odometer on this vehicle reads in kilometers per hour. It also has European-style bumpers that collectors prefer, plus the engine produces about 20 more horsepower. The other differences are purely cosmetic in the trim.
Fresh Paint and Mechanically Sound
Overall, this imported 1980 Porsche 928 is a highly desirable racer that's in excellent driving condition with a whole lot of upside. Given its rarity in the US market, the conservative asking price makes this an incredible value for someone seeking a great driver or a unique restoration opportunity.

I love reading ads that were written by shitheads who know as much about Porsches as the Taliban does about women's rights. The rear wiper parked in the wrong position indicating a malfunctioning or bad motor is a dead giveaway to the sort of chaps you're dealing with...and that's just a taste of what other maladies lie ahead.
I think what really set me off was the watermark on every image, that totally killed the visual pleasure. And the fact that they could've sounded a bit more knowledgeable about the offering by consulting Wikipedia would've made them seem more reputable. But let's forget about the merchant for a moment and focus on the goods.
This is a classic, early, and spoiler-less example of what was on the final drawings that management in Zuffenhausen signed off on...das original.
What I really love about this example is this; they left the original sidemarkers intact without adding those horrible NAPA-style versions you see on trailers. The other thing I love is the air-foil on the driver's side wiper, that's a pretty rare thing to see on a 928 stateside and just gives it just a little more of that bad-ass persona.
From the looks of it, this old girl must have been in storage for a good portion of her life. With ultra-low mileage indicating an average of 2700 miles a year...barely broken-in.
Here's what I think.
The price, if there isn't anything seriously wrong with the thing, is fair. But I think it can be unloaded for just south of $10K. Now, that being said, this car seems clean, unmolested, intact, and original right down to the radio that would cause any 928 guy to pitche a tent in the middle of his trousers, so it's not going to be on that lot very long.
If you're considering an early, unadulterated OB without the aerodynamic aids, hurry up, because this baby will be gone in short order and rightly so...she's a sexy little number that probably doesn't need much to make her well sorted.highball!pabloel jefehttp://sacramento.craigslist.org/ctd/4309510236.html
