*SOLD*
1986 Porsche 928 S 5-Speed - True Mileage unknown. Best guess is somewhere around 200k. It's on it's second odometer, and the gear needs to be changed again.
Mossgreen/Brown
No Sunroof or Rubstrips
930 Steering Wheel
18" Carrera Lightweight Wheels, with nearly new PS2s
Porken Chipset/S4 FPR
Kenwood Stereo with USB/Aux Input

Been thinking about moving on to something else, and I don't have the space to keep four cars. I'm not forced to move this at all, so the price isn't going to change much. Speaking of price, it's $9,500 obo.

This is Stan's (MrMerlin) old car that he passed along to me. If you do not know much about this car, there is a LOT of information in the provided link about it. This includes the last TB/WP service among a LOT of other things. My members link here in the OC is under that one.

The mechanicals are all in good shape. It appears that all the major systems (TT, Transaxle) were refurbs from 928INTL. in addition to all the maintenance done by Stan prior to my purchase. This is NOT a 928 that will needs thousands in deferred maintenance. All fuel lines have been replaced as well.

This car has been exceptional since I've owned it. I used it as a DD for about a year, and it only failed to start once. After taking care of a loose/intermittent ground I never had that issue again. It does have a small stalling problem that I think can be attributed to a failing ISV. Regardless, I would have this issue fixed prior to "delivery".

I just replaced the battery (Bosch), and other than needing a new ODO gear, drivers door handle hinge, and new rear exhaust section it's ready to be someone else's DD. The paintwork is the same as when Stan has it, not a show car by any means, but it does clean up really well, and the paint color is fairly unique. The interior is fairly nice as well, with no cracks in the dash or pod. The dash is a refurbed unit from 928 Intl., and the Pod and front A-Pillar covers are from Rob Budd. The front of the pod has two small squares that were cut out and then replaced with matching leather. This is covered in the RL thread. I have three different shifter knob/boots. The "stock" black boot which is on the car now. One from Paul Champagne in Black Alcantara, and a GTS knob and boot that needs to be recovered that also includes the shorter lever.

Other extras include a fairly large folder of receipts, kempf tool, Moorehouse CDs, odo gear, service covers, plus a box or two of misc spares. This is not going to be listed anywhere else, so if you know of people looking for a good sorted 928 direct them here.

Beautiful car! I anticipate someone will jump on this quickly. It's probably a good thing that I don't have the extra money right now. My significant other may shoot me if I were to add another car.

I agree, It's probably a good thing.
I don't think I will quite have that much cash after I finish the reno

Damn.

I'm well over that amount into my car and it's nowhere near that condition. No sunroof, no rubstrips, 5-speed. That is a good deal, especially knowing it was Stan's car. Wow.

Wish I had the funds...

Thanks Mike. Again, I would prefer to not get rid of it, and I might be making headway with the wife in that respect. But I REALLY need more space.

Back outside the states. I drove it a couple times while home and it feels awesome in the cooler weather! Also, no signs of any stalling issue now that the car has a fresh battery! Woo hoo!

Needs a new home.

Stephen, no it's still at the house. I've had a little bit of interest, but it's still living in my garage for now.

Strange how these cars can be hard to sell at times and hard to find at other times
