The word SAMPLE appears on the poster image just for website listing purposes, it's not on the actual print you receive. Many hours of planning, research, illustrating and writing work have gone into the production of this print and I'm very proud of it. My work is bought by enthusiasts from all corners of the world and is also often purchased to be given as gifts.
Note: I reserve the right to make minor changes to the prints in the interest of improvement or accuracy. I endeavour to update my website images as soon as possible but you may receive a newer version of the print with some changes. The factory paint colours represented on the prints are reproduced as closely as possible. Actual prints may very slightly vary due to differences between individual computer or mobile device screens and printer, and supplies of paper stock and ink stock.
Information about the Porsche 928 produced from 1977 to 1995
The Porsche 928 is a two-door front-engined, water-cooled V8 grand touring coupe released in 1977 for the following model year. It has a sleek, rounded appearance designed by Tony Lavine who gave it a long and low bonnet incorporating popup headlights, a rounded rear end and integrated elastic polyurethane body-painted bumpers. Inside was a leather luxury environment with more focus on comfort and touring over pure performance driving like on the 911.
Although built with a similar configuration to the VW-originated 924, the 928 was a completely separate development program. The 928 was also conceived to eventually replace the iconic 911 due to falling sales and a desire to move towards more conventional car design but the 928 alienated a portion of Porsche enthusiasts who believed it not to be a “pure” Porsche due to its configuration.
The luxury grand touring design made it a heavier car but it also opened the door to new customers who wanted the iconic Porsche brand and engineering but not a raw sports machine like the 911, and the company started marketing it as a flagship model above the 911 and entry-level 924. The 928 went through a series of improvements including increased engine efficiency, fuel economy and power, the addition of front and rear spoilers, internal changes, new models, special editions, subtle body changes and larger V8 motors.
It was sold in many countries including those in Europe and the UK, the United States, Canada, Australia and Japan. US models were initially behind on the performance due to local federal laws but caught up later in the model’s life. Special one-off long wheelbase, open-top and all-aluminium versions were produced as well as the GTR factory racing version. A total of 61,056 Porsche 928s had been produced when production ended in 1995. To this day it still divides car enthusiasts over which is better: the 928 or the 911.
The 928 could almost always hold its own against 911s of the time and was a more refined driving experience.
