First created in 1971 as the eventual replacement for the 911, the design for the 928 would take another 6 years to see the light of day, thanks primarily to the oil crisis gripping the world then. The 928 came to the world in 1978 with a quiet 4.5L V8 engine, developing 219HP, and being the very epitome of a touring car. The 928 was a departure from previous Porsche cars, in both being front-engined, and water-cooled, and was the first Porsche design to be so, even though it was released two years after the 924.
But the 928 had more up its' sleeve, with a specifically designed rear axle, to be known as the Weissach Axle, which allowed for dynamic changes in toe-in based on changes taking place in the drive gear. Bowing out to the 911 in 1995 due to a drop in sales volumes, this beautiful car still finds itself with a group of fans who have formed the 928 Register.
Just like all other Registers, the 928 Register benefits from being a part of the vibrant and dynamic Porsche Club NSW.
