928 [1978 à 1995]

The 1986 Porsche 928S With A Manual Is The German Muscle Car To Get

This gorgeous blue-skinned shark belongs to Muscle aficionado and personality behind House of Muscle on YouTube, Mr. Mike Musto. Both the car and its owner are about as nice as they come, and it’s quite clear that Zack Klapman and Mike have quite the rapport, being that they worked together for a number of years. When Mike was in Los Angeles with the car, he and Zack went for a drive on video. Their conversation flows like old friends, and the car enjoys being thrashed through the canyon roads. Watch and listen, and you might learn a thing or two about what is perhaps Porsche’s most maligned car.

I have personally driven this 928 with Mike before, and it is as cherry as it looks on camera. Mike bought the car as a clean candidate and had every inch of the mechanicals to make it exactly the car he dreamed of when he was younger in the 1980s. Being the last of the sharp-nosed 928s, it has the old look that he craved. Being a 1986 928S, it has the larger 32-valve 5-liter engine that makes the power Musto wanted.

These are quite rare with a manual transmission, and it completely transforms the 928 driving experience from a lackadaisical lope along to a high speed handshake deal between driver and car. If you can find one in good shape, I highly recommend it.

Mike, as a good Porsche owner should, uses is 928 regularly for high-speed highway runs between San Francisco and Los Angeles. He says it will cruise all day long at speeds exceeding the limit, and that’s just how he likes it.

Is the 928 GT the Classic Porsche to Own?

The 928 has never had the sporting credentials of the 911, but is the penultimate variant one of the best classic Porsches to own? Over nearly two decades in production the 928’s output increased from 219 horsepower to 345, and displacement from 4.5 to 5.4 liters. Changes to the model were more than simply adding power. Porsche’s traditional method of evolution rather than revolution meant that the 928 improved year after year. While the widebody GTS, has long been a collector-favorite, is the more subdued GT actually the car to have?

The GT is often forgotten in the 928 hierarchy. The largely-similar S4 was a much stronger seller and was on the market for several years longer than the GT. Unlike the S4, the GT was available only with a manual transmission. This extremely-sporting 928 was also equipped with a computer-controlled limited-slip differential derived from the 959 supercar. Power was also up by 10 horsepower compared to the S4. While 10 horsepower isn’t much, more is always better, right?

According to reviewer JayEmm, a Brit with a James May-like affection for aggressively patterned shirts, the 928 GT may be the classic Porsche to own. With plenty of interior space, a large trunk, and a torquey, flexible V8, is the 928 the ideal classic Porsche for the modern driver?

Engine Sound : Porsche 928 en Straight Pipe… Muscle car ?!

La Porsche 928… il parait qu’elle aurait été élue GT du siècle dernier. Un titre qu’elle mérite puisqu’elle a redistribué les codes de la catégorie. Avant elle, une GT, c’était un gros coupé puissant qui croulait sous l’opulence et le luxe. Après elle, on s’est rendu compte qu’une GT pouvait aussi être sportive… très sportive […]
