1988 Porsche 928 S4 (The Shark)
Last updated Dec 6, 2007
Black w/ black and yellow leather. 50K original miles. (I bought it 4 years ago in PA with 18K and wanted to keep the mileage low but I couldn't stop driving!)
Manuel down shift trigger under the gas pedal. Automatic air speed controlled flaps in the grill to help limit drag and improve handling at speed. Rear wing for down pressure. Mid-front engine, mid-rear trans for almost 50/50 balance. The battery is in the bottom of the trunk area under the spare tire which is under the cargo area so it acts as a ballast making it a little bit closer to 50/50 and lowering the center of gravity a smidge. Weissachs suspension that causes the rear wheels to camber like a down hill skier during cornering-(passive streering.) Aluminum alloy body- never rusts. Seats 4 + room for luggage. (Back seats fold down independently.)
5.0 liter, 32 valve, fuel injected all aluminum V8. 4 speed auto. One second = +10mph from any speed to any speed up to 155 when it shifts to 4th. Top speed 180+. Corners? What corners? All's you feel are the Gs.
Most options were stardard. Some exceptions were heated seats, lumbar control and a rear air-conditioner which it doesn't have.
Does have: ABS, adjustable stearing wheel position and the gauge cluster moves with the wheel so they can be viewed from any position, 8 speaker stereo.
Everything is power- windows, mirrors, seats (5 way w/ memory), sunroof, hatch release.
A/C, cruise control, driving lights, rear wiper, rear defrost, separate interior lights for front, rear, hatch plus driver and passenger map lights, glove box light, engine compartment light and door end safety lights, tool kit and electric tire pump.
Stock except K&N air filters, after market headers and exhaust -no cats, which makes it a tad too loud but it came that way and I do like the extra kick.
