Styled by American Tony Lapine, Porsche's front-engined, water-cooled, V8-powered 2+2 928 was launched at the 1977 Geneva Motorshow. Its galvanised steel monocoque was suspended on double wishbones and coil springs at the front and lower wishbones with upper transverse link and coil springs at the rear. The car featured ventilated disc brakes all round, while the gearbox was rear mounted and integral with the axle. At launch the all-alloy engine was 4.5-litres in size and produced some 240bhp but, by the time of the S4 introduced in 1987, the capacity had grown to 5.0-litres and the output to 320bhp. The newcomer could be visually distinguished from the outgoing S3 by its revised bumpers and rear spoiler. This right-hand drive S4 is finished in Metallic Diamond Blue matched to a grey leather interior and received a new water pump plus cambelt change recently, refurbished wheels shod with new tyres in 2014 and last year new brake discs, pads and an oil and filter change. Offered with extensive service history and 928 registration plate, the vendor currently grades the bodywork, paintwork, engine and gearbox as 'excellent' and the interior trim as 'very good'. Offered with an MOT certificate into July 2018.
