Lot details

Registration No: PBZ 9281
Chassis No: WP0ZZZ92ZJS840107
MOT: None

  • Rare manual gearbox, UK-supplied, 'C16' example
  • 121,700 miles and 6 former keepers from new
  • Entered from a deceased estate and in family ownership since 2006
  • Offered with original handbook and service book
  • Collection of invoices and old MOT certificates

Styled by American Tony Lapine, Porsche's front-engined, water-cooled, V8-powered 2+2 928 was launched at the 1977 Geneva Motor Show. 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.

Coming to the sale entered from a deceased estate and in family ownership since 2006, this manual 928 S4 displays c.121,700 miles. It’s a UK-supplied 'C16' example and is a relative rarity as this car is fitted with a manual transmission. We believe the specification also includes a limited-slip differential (LSD) and sports seats. First reg on 4th January 1988, the car was originally supplied to Parker and Parker of Kendal, Cumbria. We can see there have been 6 former keepers with ownership from 1997-2001 with a J. Blackledge of Blackburn and a Mr Shaikh, also of Blackburn from 2001 until the most recent ownership began in May, 2006.

The deceased owner had also owned a classic Elan Sprint (also in our sale) and a later Elan M100 and was an active member of motoring clubs, including The Independent Porsche Enthusiasts Club (TIPEC). In recent years this 924 S4 has benefitted from maintenance and parts primarily by Loe Bank Motors Ltd of Bury, Lancashire, with the work including; a crankshaft speed sensor (2018), NSF top wishbone assembly, rack mountings and power steering pipes. The last cambelt change occurred at 119,366 miles, on 6th July, 2015 by Porsche Independent Specialist Tony Greatorex. Indeed, the service book displays 29 entries over the years, with the last entry at 121,305 on 25th August, 2017, on the occasion of a service. As part of the documentation with the car is a mileage record diary, which has been kept by the later owner between May 2006 and September 2015. The S4 is being offered with a current V5C and an old V5 on file, a Porsche 928 S4 service manual, the original handbook and service book and a collection of invoices and old MOT certificates.

PLEASE NOTE: An original set of Porsche 928 S4 alloy wheels and tires are included in the sale with collection required from our head office in Warrington, Cheshire.
