Yeah, but it's not an 86.5.

Those sport seats are hot. Wow low mileage.


No H4's either. This could have been a dream 928 with those miles if it only had the "euro" engine.

That IS sweet.

I sent him an email asking about the engine.
He states it is a 32V....'86 EURO was the last of the 16V!

Hey Mark!

There were two engines offered in the Euro 85/86' cars, 16V if you did not order cats and the US version 32V if you ordered cats. The 32V Euros are rare but about the same as the US car so not very desireable.

Oh yeah, the Euro 86's probably had the S4 suspension and brakes of the 86.5' US model. I seem to remember reading somewhere that all the Euro 86's had them.

This sounds like an enthusiasts' dream - an 86 Euro with 310 hp, manual transmission and sports seats.

Only two downsides I could possibly see is that it does not have the upgraded speaker system, which was standard in US models, and those truck-style side marker lights. But real enthusiasts will get over those little bumps...

It's also missing a few other options....no rear A/C, only 4-way power seats and their not heated. Still a ride worth considering.

It should have option M298 on sticker and engine type M28/45 stamped to engine if it's Euro 32V. All '86 Euros did have "S4" suspension and brakes. They really should be called "'86 S" suspension and brakes as over 3800 '86 model year cars left factory with them when only 940 early '86 US cars had older style parts.

'86 32V M28/45 and M28/46 ROW engines have different Kolbenschmidt pistons than '85-86 32V M28/43 and M28/44 US engines. Possibly only difference is larger dish on ROW piston tops. This should give lower compression ratio, 9.3:1 vs. 10.0:1. Hp and tq ratings were 288/5750 vs. 292/5750 hp/rpm and 400/2700 vs. 410/2700 Nm/rpm. Hp numbers in DIN for both engines. By coincidence 292 DIN = 288 SAE. US engine is really 4 DIN hp = about 3.9xxx.... SAE hp stronger.

In model year '85, 16V engines M28/19 and M28/20 (same 4.7L as on '83-84 US models) were available in Germany with catalytic converter according to one factory document. Has anyone actually seen car equiped with one?

They're normal sport seats. Just about only variation in them is added heater.

Anyone ever seen 8- or 12-way sport seats on 928? I have sat in '86 951 with 12-way heated sports but never seen other car with those or 8-ways.

I almost "created" a set of 12 way sport seats just to have them and hear the questions. I don't think they were ever produced but anything can be modified.
