Private Sale. Advertising on behalf of customer. 1978 Registered Porsche 928 4.5 Auto Single Mirror. Very rare example of a early Historic classic 928 Porsche. Over 43 years old. Find Another ! Covered 94,000 Miles only. Good Service History. Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Original service record handbook. Featured and reviewed in 'GT Porsche' magazine by Andrew Frankel. Original Telephone dial alloy wheels. The 928 was launched to a fanfare and surprised many by being named 'European Car of the Year', an award that traditionally went to worthy, but dull, family hatchbacks. Critics immediately recognised the advances inherent in the 928 over the 911, and the car was universally praised as one of the greatest 'GT' cars of all time. It handled, it was quick, it looked fantastic and it was comfortable. With the 928, Porsche created a serious long distance grand-touring car that could also tackle twisting B-roads with ease, thanks to super-direct steering, 50/50 weight distribution and a clever Weissach rear axle that kept the car firmly planted. The 928 was produced from 1978 until 1995, and from '78 to'80 the initial displacement of the water-cooled, single overhead cam, V8 engine was 4.5 litres which produced 240bhp, resulting in a top speed of 158 mph and a 0-60 time of 6.2 seconds. The styling was the same in both 1978 and 1979, with the body lacking both front and rear spoilers. The distinctive rounded rear end without a spoiler is an unmistakable distinguishing feature of the early 928 - and is now considered the purest example of the design. This particular example is a, now rare, early single mirror variant presented in classic Guards Red with black and white Pasha upholstery. and was manufactured in August 1978 prior to being supplied to its first owner on 8th October 1978 by Porsche dealer Glenn Henderson at a list price of £19,499. This lovely Porsche has been enjoyed by a number of owners, one of whom, Mr Saunders, purchased it in 1984 @44,000 miles. He obviously got on well with the car and kept it for 24 years until 2008 when, with the odometer reading 86,000 miles, he sadly parted with it to 928 enthusiasts, Doug Harvey Garages, where it was displayed for a number of years until 2013. It was also featured as the 'cover car' for the first issue of Ultimate Porsche and been driven and reviewed by Andrew Frankel. The car remains in its original state sporting no modifications with the exception of the exhaust silencers. Unusually, for a 94,000-mile 43-year old car, it's still enjoying the company of its original manuals and service book and there is even a 1978 Sales Brochure published by Porsche GB. The history file offers further insights into the car's interesting life story and is home to the Porsche Certificate of Authenticity. Highly unlikely that you will find another original 928 with such provenance and in such lovely original condition. Please call for more information. Viewing Strictly by appointment only.
