Pop-up headlights, need we say more?

The Porsche 928 is a two-door grand tourer that was built between 1978 and 1995 by the Stuttgart firm.

Designed by Wolfgang Möbius, the 928 was originally intended to replace Porsche’s flagship model, the 911.

Power was derived from a range of V8 motors that varied in sizes of displacement, depending on the particular model.

The shove from the bent-eight motors was sent to the 928s rear wheels via either a three or four-speed automatic transmission or a five-speed manual transmission.

The 928 was only ever made available to customers as a 2+2 fastback-style coupe, no convertible option was ever built.

Over the course of its 17-year lifespan there were a number of different models across the 928 range.

These models comprised the 928, 928 S, 928 S2, 928 S4, 928 CS, 928 SE, 928 GT and the 928 GTS.

The 928 was a very successful model for Porsche, with over 61,000 examples being sold in 17 years.

This particular 928 is a 1987 S model and comes equipped with the 5.0lt V8 and four-speed automatic transmission.

According to the seller, the 928 has travelled an original 176,849 kilometres from new and is an Australian delivered vehicle.

The seller adds that everything about the car is original and it is superb condition, having just undergone a $12,000 major service.

The 928 S is $49,000 and anyone interested in this Germanic grand tourer can view the full listing here.
