Introduced by Porsche as the intended replacement for the 911, the 928 attempted to lure 911 buyers as a sporty grand tourer, offering exciting performance, seating for four, and space for a weekend’s worth of luggage. Practical enough to be used as a daily driver, the 928 was offered in a variety of trim levels, including the S4, which was first unveiled in 1986. The 928 S4 offered a 5.0-liter V-8 with 316 bhp and was produced through 1991. Some 15,682 examples were built in total.
According to the accompanying service manual, this 928 S4 was delivered new to Frank and JoAnn Quillen of Newark, Delaware, through Price Porsche of New Castle, Delaware, in June 1988. Its original window sticker shows that the car was ordered in Guards Red over Champagne leather with a five-speed manual transmission, sunroof, heated driver’s seat with lumbar support, a limited-slip differential, alarm, and 928 S4 designation on the trunk lid.
By 2001, the car had moved to Florida and remained there until 2015. Passing through an owner in San Francisco, the car was acquired by the current owner in 2017 and subsequently imported to Switzerland. Currently, the car presents in wonderful condition throughout, reflective of its odometer showing just 10,005 miles at the time of cataloguing.
Well regarded as one of the most reliable and usable of the 928 models, this example is perfect for the enthusiast looking for their first Porsche. With just over 10,000 miles and offered with its original manuals and window sticker, this would be an excellent Porsche to drive and enjoy for the individual that missed out on a 928 when new, or for someone looking to add to their growing collection of Stuttgart’s finest.
