1980 Porsche 928 S Euro 4.7 liter gas from North America
Eur versions blow USA versions away, AWESOME
New clutch assembly every 20000, new tie rods every 30,000.
I have owned this 928S EUR since 85. I purchased it from a man that had just imported it into the USA.
Although maintenance cost are higher than most American cars, most high performance cars cost more to drive and the thrill of driving it far out weighs the cost of driving it. This year and model was extremely fast as it weighs only 3190lbs and packs 300HP and 385 LBS of torque. Comfort wise it blows the vette away and will give even the late models fits on short curvy tracks.
Mine is used sparingly, it would take a lot of $ to get this one away from me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a 1980 euro 928s. This car is amazing. It has the 300 hp with stainless steel exhaust; it sounds like a muscle car. I have HRE racing wheels, and though very costly, they look amazing.
Repairs are costly, mainly the parts; you want to play, you got to pay! If you live near Stockton NJ, there's an awesome mechanic who has a 928s and loves to work on them. I think he knows more about 928s than Porsche does, I'm serious! He's located on rt 29 at the 523 split. Tell him Gary sent you, you won't be disappointed.
The 928 makes a Corvette seem like a piece of crap; believe me, I had one.
