The Porsche 928 - Specifications

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.
