1988 Porsche 928 S4

[ translate ]

Lot details Registration No: F159 TLX Chassis No: WP0ZZZ92ZJS841537 MOT: October 2024 Subject to mechanical overhaul, interior re-fresh and a respray in Gloss Black between 2020-2021 Unusual specification including Red interior inserts, factory heated seats and sliding roof Extensive history file Styled by American Tony Lapine, Porsche's front-engined, water-cooled, V8-powered 2+2 928 was launched at the 1977 Geneva Salon. Not only was it about as mechanically different to the ubiquitous 911 as it could possibly be, but represented the company's first foray into grand touring territory. Nevertheless, it received a rapturous reception from the press and was duly awarded the 1978 Car of the Year Award. Debuting in 1986 for the 1987 model year, the S4 variant featured an updated version of the 5.0-litre V8 producing some 316hp and a larger torque converter on automatic transmission examples along with numerous styling updates to give the car a sleeker appearance. Production of the S4 ended in 1991 along with the GT model to make way for the 5.4-litre GTS which would last until 1995. First registered on 1st September 1988, this lovely Porsche 928 S4 is presented in Gloss Black with a contrasting Red and Black leather interior. ‘F159 TLX’ has an unusual specification with the Red interior, but was also specified with factory heated seats, additional amplifier, back support and electrical sliding roof. In January 2021, the car was sold to a previous owner, who undertook the task of making it ‘perfect’. In late 2020, the car had received extensive works with Simon Ainsworth Engineering, including Gaz suspension, braided brake lines, replacement steering rack bushes, the intake manifold and cam covers re-finished and re-fitted, injector seals, the underside Waxoyled, replacement front discs and pads, the gearbox and diff oil replaced and further fettling. Air conditioning was retrofitted with Climate Components Ltd. In April 2021, the car was subject to replacement carpets (including door panel carpet), the centre console armrest was retrimmed, further interior fettling and then subject to a complete respray in Gloss Black with Alchemy Paint Ltd. The parts used were primarily purchased directly from Porsche, including door seals and window guides. The wheels were then refurbished with Spit & Polish Alloy Wheel Reburbishment Services and after the car was complete, it was sold to the previous owner. ‘F159 TLX’ was sold to the vendor in a deal for one of his many historic race cars in 2023 and it is now offered for sale due to lack of use, having been stored in a professional facility since. Included with the vehicle is a comprehensive history file. Within is the original Porsche book pack, which includes the Porsche 928 S4 Driver’s manual, pocket guide to Porsche ownership, Porsche Approved programme handbook, Porsche service book and the Guarantee and Maintenance booklet which contains 16 stamps; the most recent at 119,619 miles. Also included is a large collection of invoices dating back as far as 1995, a large collection of MOT certificates dating back to 1999, a spare key and the current V5C document which displays 11 former keepers.
