Drive Away In A 1988 Porsche 928 S4

Values for this classic Porsche have been on the rise lately.

A true enthusiast vehicle, this 1988 Porsche 928 S4 has a mere 54,825 miles on the odometer. That beautiful Silver Metallic body looks nice at every angle, plus the wheels and other trim pieces are immaculate, representing the careful preservation of Porsche history. While not everyone thinks such a car is worth saving, this 928 S4 is actually a gem.

Running from 1978 to 1995, the Porsche 928 was born out of Porsche’s need to keep up with tightening emissions and safety regulations in the United States. Purists objected to the radical designs used in the car, but it helped propel the German automaker into the modern era of cars. Time has been kind to the 928, with collectors and others realizing its contributions to the Porsche brand and automotive world in general. S4 models like this are some of the most sought-after, thanks to better performance.

One of the amazing things about this car is not all the body pieces are made of the same material. When the Porsche 928 first launched that wasn’t common, with automakers pretty much sticking with the steel, aluminum, fiberglass, or some other material for the entire body. Porsche did an excellent job getting the paint to look uniform despite the diverse materials, something you’ll find on most cars today.

Because this is an S4 model it uses a 5.0-liter V8 engine with 316-horsepower on tap. A four-speed automatic transmission means you can get in and start driving without difficulty, plus it gets moving in a hurry. The interior is every bit as clean as the exterior, featuring OE controls, steering wheel, and trim all glistening. Even the leather upholstery is free of damage and stains, so this car is quite impressive all around.

The design of the Porsche 928 is striking. Instead of looking like other GTs from the time, it has some unique flair to it, like the rear quarter windows, the large wing, or those characteristic round headlights. There’s no mistaking this ride for anything else, and that’s great if you’re looking for cars with some personality.

If you want to add this car to your collection, it’s being sold through R&H Motorcar Group.
