The rather rare Porsche 928, which was produced in 1988, is sold today for $ 149,000. Interestingly, the mileage is only 4656 km.

An ad appeared on eBay. The lot will be available for almost a month, so its price during this time may still change significantly. The car is in excellent condition. In addition, it is quite rare, although the history of this model could have developed completely differently.

Initially, the Porsche 928 was conceived by the German company as the successor to the famous Porsche 911. The rear-engine layout was considered somewhat outdated. And the new V8 engine, located in the front, opened up access to new power indicators.

Thanks to this, the car offered a different level of dynamics, even despite the increased mass. In addition, the Porsche 928 was tuned for a more comfortable ride, offering customers the driving characteristics of the luxury GT segment.

Nevertheless, the novelty has acquired not so numerous audience. Given that the 928 was still a successful model, consumer demand for the Porsche 911 did not decline. Connoisseurs of sports cars liked the responsiveness and specific handling of a small light car.

Therefore, the Porsche 928 still has not received a direct successor, and the company decided to continue the development of the 911th model line. As you can see now, the leadership of the German brand did not fail. By and large, the 928th of the hopes assigned to him did not justify. However, this does not prevent him from remaining a valuable collector’s item to this day.
