1989 PORSCHE 928 S4



Originally designed as a potential flagship replacement for Porsche’s popular 911, the 928 was a 2+2 grand touring car manufactured from 1978 to 1995. It was developed with the goal of blending the performance and handling of a sports car with the comfort, spaciousness and ride quality of a luxury vehicle.

The Porsche 928 featured a V8 engine located at the front - a far cry from the rear-engine design of the 911 before it. As a result, the car achieved remarkable top speeds and earned recognition in 1978 by winning the ‘European Car of the Year’ award. It remains the only sports car to receive this accolade. In addition, the British automobile magazine ‘The Autocar’ described it as a “supercar” in 1980.

Although the fundamentals of the 928’s design remained the same over the course of its 18-year production run, the engine and styling of the vehicle underwent a few changes, and a significant ‘facelift’ separated the look of the vehicle between the 1st and 2nd generations.

In 1986 the S4 variant of the Porsche 928 made its debut, with an updated version of the 5L V8 engine capable of producing 316 horsepower, a larger torque converter in automatic transmission variants and fairly significant styling updates.

A Porsche 928 was featured heavily in the film ‘Risky Business’ starring Tom Cruise in 1983.


A fantastic example of a 1989 Porsche 928 S4 in great condition finished in its original Black paint (code L700) and sporting black leather seats. Australian delivered to Melbourne in January of 1989, the car then went to Sydney and is believed to have changed ownership three times.

Showing 230,653kms on the odometer, it is an original kilometers vehicle with an extensive history – including records dating back to its first 3,697km service and a receipt file that goes back to 1999.

Considerable work has been done to this car - the engine was rebuilt approximately 8,000 kms ago - it has hardly been run in. The rebuild included the pistons being recoded, the head being worked, and the inlet manifold being rebuilt. New belts have been fitted and a thrust-bearing failure part has been installed to the flex plate. All new knock-sensors have been replaced on the new engine block and the original engine block is still on hand with the current owner.

The automatic transmission has been adjusted and is very smooth. The wheels have been restored and new tyres have been fitted.

The interior is clean and well-kept. All of the original gauges function correctly and every electronic component works including the sunroof, electric mirrors, the original Blaupunkt stereo and electronic seats. The air-conditioning head unit has been restored as well.

She is extremely enjoyable to drive, the rebuilt engine puts out fantastic power, and the handling is tight and responsive – exactly what you would expect from a car of this marque.
