High Speed Thrills: ’85 Porsche 928S
We have a thing for a good 928S. If you are going to have a thing for one, it better be a good one and that would be a well cared for example with no differed maintenance issues. They are still striking when you see one on the road even by today’s design standards. The interiors are sumptuous like a good high-speed GT. It even has somewhat useable rear seats for the youngsters in your family. Certainly more accommodating than a 911’s rear seats. These are powered by big Porsche V8s. And the ’85 happens to be a pretty decent year (not as good as an S4 however). Displacement, power, and top speed increased, with a 5.0-liter appearing in 1985, as well as revised brake and suspension components and a 5-speed manual. BTW, the 5-speed is sort of a rarity for the 928S and that makes this one pretty desirable. They are pretty much unloved as a collector car. Perhaps it is because they are expensive to own? For whatever reason, if you do not care so much for a Porsche as a good investment, consider the 928S as a candidate to provide you with a thrill ride of a lifetime. Most decent 928s can be had for chump change and that means you can buy it in the teens for sure. The seller is asking $16,000 for this 60,000 original mile example. Just make sure you get a PPI before you leap. That V8 or transmission rebuild could cost more than the car is worth. Click here for the listing.
