The 928 is one of the best Porsche road cars despite the fact it was and still is a controversial model. This was the only true Porsche GT car, so most fans would love to see it back in some shape or form. But back in the mid-70s, Porsche decided the 911 was outdated and not profitable enough to keep the company afloat. So, the board approved the development of a new model with a water-cooled V8 engine in the front.
Also, they wanted to give it a different design, technology, and appearance. So, in 1977, Porsche introduced the 928, but kept the 911 in production. The 928 was a Gran Turismo coupe with a powerful V8 engine in the front and a transaxle gearbox. It had ideal weight distribution, an intelligent suspension, and a space-age design.
In contrast to the 911, which still had some VW Beetle cues, the 928 looked like it came from another planet. Although the early 928s produced just a bit below 300 HP, they were fast. Porsche made this car fast for effortless cruising over continents in comfort, speed, and luxury. They kept improving the 928, introducing the S4 version in 1987.
