1989 porsche 928 s4 5spd for sale
 
 
Fast Facts:

  • Very few alignment shops are equipped to align the 928 correctly. The 928 features special suspension bushings that “set” when the suspension is unloaded (ie, when the car is raised on a lift). When the car is brought back down to rest on its own weight, the ride height will be one inch higher than when you started, and will need to be driven over 100 miles to allow the suspension to “settle” to its normal ride height
  • The problem is that after raising the car in the air to mount tires, shops will lower the 928 back down on the ground and give it an alignment before allowing the suspension to settle. Performing an alignment with an inch taller ride height will make the car toe out excessively once the suspension settles to the factory specs, resulting in excessive tire wear and unstable handling
  • The 928 featured Porsche’s highly advanced Weissach axle, a variant of the semi-trailing arm suspension. As cars were getting faster (with better tires) drivers are able to exceed the limits of the suspension, causing tendencies like extreme toe-out in corners, as well as off-throttle oversteer. The team at Porsche set out to design the most advanced suspension layout (at the time) that would counter these issues by automatically self-adjusting itself during a corner. Their solution was the Weissach axle, developed for the 928
  • The Weissach axle “laid the foundation for modern axle kinematics”, and continued development allowed Porsche to confidently introduce a modernized version of this technology into a 911, specifically the 993
Key Model Year Changes:

  • Final year of the manual transmission S4. The following years were automatic only (U.S)
  • New digital trip computer added to the interior display, as well as electric central locking and tire pressure monitoring
  • First year of the GT model. The GTS wasn’t imported until 1993

Seller Notes:

  • Showroom fresh/museum quality
  • Looks and drives like a new 30 year old Porsche!
  • Paint is original without swirls or scratches
  • Maintenance history dating back to 2005
  • Completely gone through in 2018. Most recent maintenance done was a radiator flush in February of 2020
  • Arguably the most desirable year as it was the last year before airbags and the electronic issues that cropped up on later models
