I've just purchased a 928 SE (1 of only 42 made) impeccable service history is a must, as is a pre purchase inspection by a marque specialist if you don't have the expertise (as is my case) My car is about to start it's journey from the UK !

What series do you intend to go for? Auto or manual?

Other sites you can look at for good info are, 928.org (British) and Rennlist (USA) heaps of good info on both sites.

Cheers

(IMO, these are seriously undervalued cars!)

If you look on Rennlist 928, there is part of series one, episode one of The Classic Car club, they do a brief road test on the 928 (which is the car I now own) If you have trouble fnding it on the site, drop me a line and I'll guide you to it

Any chance you can share photos of your 928? Would love to see it.

Thanks for that. Sensational car, absolutely love it. Have you driven any other 928s to compare to?

No worries
No, this is the only 928 I have driven, I would have looked at buying a GTS manual if I could have imported one, but I am more than happy with the SE, does everything I want, the power is quite amazing, and sounds fantastic :)

Agree with you on how under rated they are. Still a great drivers car. Good performance, superb comfort and excellent reliability for not a lot of money.

I still think prices for the mint original and rare models will take off at some point, styling may not tick everyones box, but in terms of everything else it does, whats not to like? (Unless you have bought a neglected money pit)

Buy well, and for the money, what else is going to compare? :)

ARE they reliable, though?? I keep hearing stories...all 10th hand, though.

I love my car. Buy your own

For a 30 year old car, I'd say they're pretty reliable.

Our 1984 S hasn't needed too much maintenance given its age - there is a small oil seep in a gasket somewhere that needs attention at some point in the future, and recently the power antenna stopped working, but otherwise it's just had a service every 12 months and no big surprises.

My 1987 S4 needed the steering rack to be reconditioned and kept venting all its AC gas every few months but again was pretty reliable otherwise.

Like all old cars though if they're neglected by previous owners it might be a different story.
