European Motor Studio is very proud to offer this incredible fine. A single family owned all original 1980 Porsche 928 5-Spd finished in a very striking and unusual color of Petrol Blue Metallic with a complimenting Beige/Brown leather interior. After completion in January of 1980 at the Stuttgart factory, this 928 was then shipped to Euro Motorcars Marlow Heights. INC. and on April 23, 1980, it sold to its single owner. The car moved to Southern CA sometime in the early 1990’s where it has lived ever since covering a mere 64,300 miles from new.
Retaining its original Petrol Blue Metallic paint, this 928 is a striking example of Porsche’s first muscle car. The paint has just undergone a wet sand, buff and a polish and looks fantastic. There are a few stone chips in the front nose and lower portion of the hood and one blend that was done on the front passenger fender above the headlight. There are a few stone chips and a couple scratches in the lower driver door and a couple of small light chips and scratches in the back rear hatch. Overall the paint finish is outstanding for being original and its age. The interior is in outstanding condition. The original untouched leather is still incredibly soft and virtually unmarked with lite creasing on the driver seat. The leather dash top and center console look like a time warp. The leather is still soft and does not show any signs of shrinkage or peeling.
All of the switchgear is in excellent condition and in working order. The power sunroof opens and closes as do the windows, central locking, mirrors, power driver and passenger seats and the original radio (power antenna does not work). All of the exterior and interior lights are operating as designed including both driver and passenger entry lights and overhead light and the pop up headlights open and close with ease. The 4.5 liter V8 engine starts right up and idles smoothly. The engine revs freely and has excellent acceleration. The engine pulls incredibly strong all through the gears and free from any drama. The transmission feels good and solid and once warmed up shifts with ease. The clutch has an excellent solid feel, free from any signs of slipping. The suspension and steering are very tight and solid and track down the road free from any looseness or drifting. The brakes are very good and precise free from any noises or fade.
The car has just undergone a recent service and timing belt service along with four brand new tires. Accompanying the sale of this 928 are the original owners handbooks, three original keys with the original Porsche leather pouch, tool kit and spare. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a rare single family owned 928 5-Spd in all original condition.
