Porsche 928 1985

133543 miles

Gateway Classic Cars of Fort Lauderdale presents this 1985 Porsche 928S in white on black and red. “Porsche… there IS no substitute” as Tom Cruise so famously said in the 1983 film “Risky Business”, after he evaded some bad guys in his dad’s Porsche 928.

This particular car has upgraded headlamps, recent paint, custom front buckets and wheels, adding value to your run of the mill 80’s 928. While it still needs some finishing work, it looks good and could be a fun first car for someone. 928’s differed from other Porsche models in looks (similar but considerably larger than the 924 and 944’s) but the 928’s offered powerful V8’s where the rest of the line did not. They were technically advanced vehicles back in the day, and expensive meaning they were usually reserved for affluent buyers. They made Corvettes look primitive.

Car & Driver Magazine tested the improved 1985 928 and had this to say: 1985 Porsche 928S is a substantial improvement over its predecessor. Top speed is 154. Our five-speed test car rocket­ed from a standing start to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and hit 100 mph less than eight seconds later. And the new model burned through the standing quar­ter-mile in 14.0 seconds at 102 mph”. This particular car has the automatic, which would have been close to those numbers. This is a relatively inexpensive car given the tech and high price these commanded new. 928’s are fun to drive, sound very cool, and have very distinctive design.
