BaT Auction: 1983 Porsche 928S 5-Speed at No Reserve

This post was originally published on this site

This 1983 Porsche 928S is equipped with a 4.7-liter V8, a rear-mounted 5-speed manual transaxle, and a limited-slip differential. The car has reportedly been in the Northwest since the mid-1990s and was acquired by the seller six months ago. Modifications include a 928 Motorsports strut tower bar and aftermarket stereo, and new tie rods were recently installed along with new motor mounts, spark plugs, and a power steering rack. This 928S is now being offered for sale at no reserve with a clean AutoCheck report and a clear Washington title in the seller’s name.

The car was repainted some time ago, and the seller notes some repairs of the passenger quarter panel. Finish flaws pictured in the gallery include peeling and cracking of the rear bumper in addition to some rust on the hatch and in the corners of the rear sill. No accidents are listed on the provided AutoCheck report.

Stock 16” slotted alloy wheels wear a chrome finish, and the commonly-applied protective side moldings are absent. A spare tire is included in the trunk, though no tool kit is present.

Light grey leather seats have been reupholstered and their power functions are said to partially work. Black carpets cover the floors, and some wear is noted on the factory 4-spoke steering wheel. The A/C is inoperable and the defroster is said to occasionally turn on by itself.

An aftermarket stereo installed in the dash sends power to non-original speakers mounted in the interior panels and rear trunk area. The seller reports some leather separation around the defrost vents in addition to a non-functional sunroof, antenna, rear wiper, and odometer, meaning the 139k indicated miles are inaccurate.

The 4.7L V8 is paired with a rear-mounted 5-speed manual transaxle and was factory-rated at 234 horsepower for the US market. A 928 Motorsports strut tower bar has been added, and recent maintenance performed by the seller included new tie rods, motor mounts, spark plugs, and a power steering rack, in addition to coolant and transmission fluids.

A photo of the undercarriage is viewable above. The seller notes minor leaks in the power steering lines and oil pan, as well as a light grinding of the transaxle between 1st and 2nd gear during colder temperatures.
