#22177 of 22203 what happened to the 928s
Nov 10, 2011 (2:58 am)
i heard the talk about the Porsche 928s from a couple of friends of mine i seen the car once before and it looks a lot like the 944 which i know as being Porsche's not so expensive product line and not as fast as the newer ones iv-ed driven a late model 911 and it handles really well i want to know how does the 928s handle or is it one of those cars you just let the opportunity pass by on taking a test drive... maybe it will be Porsche's new comeback ride in the future.

The 928 ended in 1995. It was to replace the 911. End of story.
I have an Audi G5, A8L, (had a GT3 - traded back in after 30 days - wanted to keep my license) and now a 911 Carrera GTS.
The 928 is a realative inexpensive car to purchase if you have knowledge of Porsche repair or deep pockets for it's repair. Nice thing about it is the V8 engine.
Good luck on your quest. If I get the right deal, will trade the Porsche and pick up a R8 (again if the price is right....

That's kind of tricky. You really want one that's been owned by a fanatic and is in nearly showroom condition if you can manage it, because you can drop another 8K in repairs and reconditioning and the like into a 928 without hardly blinking.

The General's leather is "ap-cray" as is Acura's.
It sure is - as was Fords before about 2007 - significantly better now. Remember however, the seats are subcontracted out to either Johnson Controls or other manufacturers to make. The quality is speced out of course by the car company, but you will find a similar grade of "leather" spread among various companies, such as Ford, GM, Chrysler and Toyota or Honda.

Didn't realize how long it's been since I checked in here until seeing the date of your post. Time flies! Yes, still have the S5, meteor gray, turns 4 tomorrow. Almost 35k miles, not a single problem other than key fob mows down batteries. Will hang onto it longer than I expected, because I don't want to say goodbye to the 4.2. What a shame.
Since we last communicated, I've taken possession of that '69 Jaguar XKE 2 you may or may not remember the pics I posted of. Keep your eyes open, I've been driving it top down in our area every Sunday in this awesome weather we've had. I'm also considering a new S8 in the near future, unless I can be talked down.
