| Development of the
928 began in late 1971, pre-dating the 924 which was marketed before the
928. Porsche believed the venerable air-cooled 911 series could not possibly
continue indefinately given ever restricting regulations on noise, emissions
and the crashworthiness of rear-engined cars. Also, Porsche saw a need to
fill in the horsepower-driven lucrative American market, where over half
of all its new car sales were being made. Powerplants considered for the
928 initially included a V6, but, luckily for 928 enthusiasts, an all-aluminum
4.5 liter 16-valve SOHC V8 became the chosen powerplant.
