And that analysis my friends is why we're all here. Indeed, it is why the 928s will be enjoyed.

Thank you for putting such a fine point on our problem; Porsche. There is no substitute.

Meanwhile, The 928's will be enjoyed.

Thanks for the input...

You're welcome 😇
Enjoy your 928, I know I have definitely enjoyed mine, both S4 and GTS.

On another note, V12's are quite special 😉 and once bitten..........

There is still room in the garage for a V12, and I get that "Intoxicating Aural" vibe of the Ferrari, but the right car has thus far eluded me.

In the meantime, this incredible "Exclusive" build sheet Turbo in Sapphire Blue with two pages of options turned up. And my wife loves it!

Can't wait to get it shipped home and in the garage!



Does not replace a 928 in terms or carrying golf clubs, but it sure will be fun!

Congrats!, enjoy it! It's always better when the wife also approves 😎

Good luck with the V12 search as well 😉

Thanks Richard,

I'm heading out to Monterey in early March, Perhaps we can get together and discuss the virtues of the 599 in person?

Michigan is an automotive desert in winter...

Enjoy,

Dave

Andy,

Your approach is the most cost effective by far. To bring a 928 into another performance dimension is a $40k project and if done well, does not detract from its collectability with the exception of the miles. I am considering dumping some enhancements into my 90 GT Outlaw. Should I send Greg my original GT motor or build an S4?

I too wish the AMG cabin matched the aesthetic of the outer design...

Recall though that Italian women are legendary for their irascibility and they tend towards jealousy I've been told. Maybe not a good idea to keep them in the same garage.

It's here!

This thing is soooooo awesome, I quickly run out of superlatives and adjectives in describing the quality of the build and performance of this vehicle.

Not a flattering picture because it is just finished being washed, but this car is in impeccable condition. Full body wrap with XPEL and not a ding anywhere! The leatherwork amazes and the dimensions and weight are nearly identical to a 928 GTS. Only thing missing is usable space for golf clubs! And yes, my wife "Loves It"...










The leatherwork is exceptional and the deviating leather on the vent slats is over the top. Deviating stitching everywhere with 68 options on the build sheet.

Pinch me!

Terry,

Enjoy!
