Did you say twin turbo? How? Do you have the history of the car? Where did you get the turbos? I know it is not factory. I own a 1982 928S in immaculate condition and I love it.

The techs at "Autothority" in Fairfax install turbos and upgrades all the time on 928s and other Porsches! Also include Audi and VW's.

It can be done! the mpg will be 10mpg once the turbo is installed.

Thanks

To clarify:

Most of the body is made of aluminum (Front fenders, doors, hood, bumper supports) while the rest (Rear Quarters) are galvanized steel, along with the unit-body. Suspension and drivetrain cases are almost completely aluminum in construction.

I currently own a 1982 Porsche 928 Weisach Special Edition. What I know about the authenticity of this edition is that the color is metallic gold exterior, all leather interior, the wheels are aluminum alloy with "hairline" finish and subdued gold, and a wide body. This is not a turbo model.

I like everything about this car except that the door handles should be made with something much more solid. I love the V8 sound, acceleration, and most importantly, it's bullet-proof engine performance. I can live with minor cosmetic flaws as compared to the value for reliability.

I own about 9 cars and the 928 rarely visit the repair shop. Maintenance only calls for regular oil change and check fluids. This car is a head turner and other motorists even applaud this car. I am not selling this Weisach 928.

Porsche did make a twin turbo 928 that was made from aluminum and not steel, however there were only about 58 or so made.

I Actually own a TWIN TURBO 928s it boasts 600hp on low boost and is a weapon on the road, I have not been brave enough to pump the boost up, it really does not need it and I could not handle the power. It is for sale.. contact gifould@hotmail.com.

Sounds like he's talking about a 82 Weissach 928S. Lost on the Twin Turbo's. Had to be an after-market add on Non OEM. The Weissach only produced 206 in the 928 S mod for that year. The 911 had about 100+ made. My 928S was number 100. The plate on the Leather Dash was the marker. The Color is often mistaken for Gold, but it is actually Helbronze. The rims were anodized brushed gold in color. The Weissach design was named for the give in the suspension while banking turns. A couple of notables... The leather dash was actually Mohagany in Color. Almost imposible to find.

Take it easy lads, the 928s you're talking about does exist. Yes it is wider; including the track width at the rear, your suspension will also be adjustable, including ride height rebound and steering bump.

Also the car will have quick style adjustable cambers on it. You use two allen keys to adjust the lobes, LSD in the diff standard, the walschef suspension someone was talking about? As far as my research tells me, Walschef was the name of the man who designed the diff for the Porsche company. After its implementation, all Porches went to this style diff, and yes 911 that includes you.

Not all of the 928s special gems were gold, some were petrol blue! In fact 8 were originally built to my knowledge. 2 are left; Porsche purchased the others back. These cars were used for research for a certain race... guess it? If you need a hint look at a 928s track record for the years 1983-1984; the car raced in the B series before it was removed from that series (they discontinued that class).

Whether you drive a Ferrari or a Aston Martin DB9, you can be assured of one thing, that a 928s is going to be in front of you. 30 year old car still showing the young ones how it's done. Gotta put a smile on your dial...

I just bought a 1982 Porsche 928, on the steering wheel it has 928s. It has adjustable rear suspension. It has leather interior and is petrol blue. What are the chances of this being one of eight? How do I tell for sure?
