German Camaro: 1983 Porsche 928S

The Porsche 928 was introduced to the world in 1978 as the shape of things to come for Porsche.  The sleek-in-the-front and bulbous-in-the-rear design was penned by Wolfgang Möbius and was one of the first cars to offer a polyurethane front bumper that survived the USA 5 mph impact requirements introduced in the mid 1970s.  A V8 up front mated to a trans-axle finished the design that was decidedly non-911 and very much a luxury grand tourer.  Today the prices for a vintage 911 is through the roof, but a decent running 928 is cheap.  Find this 1983 Porsche 928S offered for $4000 in Alvin, TX via craigslist. Tip from SecondMouse.

  1. German muscle hatchback!

  2. Cheap reliable Porsche, pick two.

  3. “Runs but needs work” really means runs but needs trust fund.

  4. Camaro, eh Jefe?

    Why not a Firebird?

    Can you imagine this 928, painted black, with a GOLD screaming chicken on the hood?

    I can.

    Der beschissene deutsche Feuervogel.

    1. Ohhhh, I like that better. A 928 with a thunderchicken an a turbo 301 swap would NOT be invited to the next lufthegfuliktult show.

  5. actually, you need the GERMAN bird from coat of arms... not sure how to attach an image, but here is a link... make a german version of a firebird

  6. W8a60sec. Wasn't that the TR7 line?

  7. A gold and blacked out German Trans-Am would indeed be awesome!
