BaT Auction: 1978 Porsche 928 5-Speed
This 1978 Porsche 928 was made in May of 1977 before the start of US-spec production and is believed to be the 78th 928 produced. This example is equipped with a 5-speed manual gearbox and remains in correct european specification. The seller has recently repainted the car in the original silver which shows nicely over black vinyl and Pasha upholstery. The car has 166k kilometers (101k miles) as specified by the original km/h speedometer. This early car lacks the rubstrips and spoiler seen on most later 928s, and is not equipped with a passenger's side mirror, side markers, or sunroof. The car is said to be in generally good mechanical order with its original numbers-matching engine, though it does have some needs remaining. The seller has owned the car for three years and is offering it with a letter from the Rhode Island DMV in lieu of a title.
