The Porsche 928 was a luxurious grand tourer produced by Porsche AG from 1978 to 1995. Originally intended to replace the company’s well-known and famed 911, the 928 combined the power, poise, and handling of a sports car with the refinement, comfort, and equipment of a luxurious saloon to create what some Porsche executives thought would be a vehicle with wider appeal than the compact, quirky and sometimes difficult 911.
The 928 featured a large, front-mounted and water-cooled V8 engine driving the rear wheels. This design marked a major change in direction for Porsche whose cars had until then used only rear- or mid-mounted air-cooled flat engines with four or six cylinders.
Porsche utilized a transaxle in the 928 to help achieve 50/50 front/rear weight distribution, aiding the car’s balance. Although it weighed more than the difficult-to-handle 911, its more neutral weight balance and higher power output gave it similar performance on the track. The 928 was regarded as the more relaxing car to drive at the time.
The 928 S4 variant debuted as a 1987 model, with an updated version of the 5.0 L V8 for all markets producing 320 PS.
