1987 Porsche 928 S4 5.4 liter V8 from North America


Cool, well handling, nice looking car


Clutch slave cylinder, anti-lock brake issues, small wiring issues, A/C, and heater controls.

General Comments:

Very well balanced, quite fast, and unique styling. Well ahead of its time.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

5000 miles in 18 years of ownership?

Obviously, "Porsche, there is no substitute" is not always the case.

I use my car collection more. It takes me 9-10 years at that mileage. This is not uncommon with classics to exotics. A show or parade once in a while. But they’re there is the rationale to break out when you feel like it. Daily driver guys or mostly work mode vehicle usage individuals may not grasp this.

I saw that too. Keeping a car sitting most of the time instead of being used moderately at least, will cause a few problems.

I agree, just search for sale any 80s or even 90s exotic sports cars; lucky if they have 40,000 total miles on them. Collectors like that and like to keep them under 100,000 for re-sale in future.

I don't even take my vaguely sporty and relatively expensive second car that is an old Mercedes S-class out for a drive often because; #1 it already has 100k plus miles on it, #2 I don't want dents on it from careless non-car people at shopping malls carelessly loading up their cars, #3 I get comments like this also - people saying why do I keep it when I drive it so little? Well because I enjoy every second even more when I do drive it, and it is worth it; cruising along deserted roads in a nice car is what driving is all about, not just commuting.

Both cars mentioned do not command high resale or a premium investment at the moment. I would buy, use and simply enjoy as driver quality automobiles.
