PORSCHE 928 (1977-1995) CAR HISTORY

Car review on PORSCHE 928

The whole of Porsche's glowing reputation was based on a format that it had used since 1948, namely a rear- mounted engine. The 924 of 1975 was its first-ever front-engine car but, since this was an Audi cast-off, it is fair to say that the 928 was the first car conceived by the Porsche team to have a front engine.


The 928 was always intended as a range-topping super car, but secretly Porsche hoped it would prove to be a natural successor to the rear-engine 911. In the end, of course, it never did displace its more sporting sibling, and the 911 remained the seminal Porsche. In truth, the 928's main success was in attracting a new class of buyer to the Porsche brand, someone who might otherwise have elected to buy a Mercedes SEC or Jaguar XJS, for this was more of a grand tourer than an outright sport scar.


Porsche built an all-new 4.5-litre V-eight for the 928, which was fabulously smooth and flexible but ultimately not as quick as the 911. There was a choice of rear-mounted manual transmission or, more commonly, Mercedes-built automatic. An attempt to give it some more power was made with the later 4.7-litre 928S (which had an extra 60hhpat300bhp).


In character, the 928 was ruthlessly efficient rather than exciting, a trait that it’s clean but uninvolving styling seemed to exacerbate. It was also very comfortable, at least for the two front passengers; rear seat space was available, but very limited. Lavish equipment levels matched its "soft" image. Handling could not be faulted, and it was as forgiving as the 911 was tricky at its limit.


Power jumped again in 1986 with the launch of the S4. Its 5.0-litre power- plant now had a twin-cam head, 32 valves and a maximum output of 320bhp: the 928 was finally coming of age. The S4 restyle altered the nose and tail sections.


The best versions of all were saved for last, however. To counter criticisms that this was nut as sporting as some rivals, Porsche offered a CT version with an extra 10 bhp, electronic limited slip differential and sports suspension (which improved handling but made the ride harder). The package became even sharper with the 1992 GTS, now sporting a 5.4-litre 350bhp engine, wider wheels and a more vigorous feel.


After a production run of 18 years, the928 was retired in 1995. The model was not as successful as Porsche had initially hoped, but it had provided a useful lesson: traditional Porsche people stuck with what they knew and liked — the 911 — and the Stuttgart firm meddled with this fact of life at its peril. It has never looked back.
