Rare 1980 Porsche 928 Import
European Built w/ Only 91,534 Original Miles
Fresh Paint and Mechanically Sound
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.
