    I have always loved the 928. A new model would be sweet if they didn't stray too far off the original design. Some people think they are ugly, but I disagree.

    I'm a big fan of the 928. Change the rims and it is the only model that you could insert into the line up of the 90's forward and it looks current save the paint age. IMHO of course.

    The 928 is one of the few Porsches I liked.

    The 928 was/is still my favorite P-car & I agree it has aged the best of any of their cars; particularly the last GTS cars of the early-mid 90's. A year or two ago I saw a full blown 928 race car at Summit Point during a Porsche Club event and it sounded phenomenal and LOUD! Hopefully Porsche will actually follow through and build a successor to the 928.

    Couldnt agree more, I have just sold this 1995 GTS to make way for the fcar, driven 928 for 10 years and owned this one for almost 5 years, never ever let me down and biggest expense was a clutch, with the 5speed manual it was soooo fast, I will miss it!

    Hey steve what a nice paint job. What color is that? I have never seen that shade before on a shark.

    Oh, this will be tasty. Love that blue.
    Interesting to note the consensus thus far is to keep the 9X8 lines as close to the 928 as possible. The irony (iron knee) is - Ferrari GT haters don't use the same logic.

    928 was one of the sexiest Porsches IMO, I would love to see another one.

    What Porsche isn't Italian? :p

    Seriously though, since there are posts in here about non-Italian cars and I didn't really see another section where this would go, I figured this would do nicely.

    I have always liked the 928 - I hope they bring it back with as much innovation.

    Now if Ferrari would only bring back a updated 360 Mondial 2+2.....

    Its Iris Blue metallic, was a 2.5k option on the car when new in 1995, Porsche discontinued the color about 1997 but they will still do it, I know of a guy who bought a 993 new in 1998 and paid 5k for Iris Blue!!! It is a great color tho.

    never heard of 19" on a 928, dont think they would look right, the 18s on my car were fitted with 265/30 tyres on the rear to keep the same overall diameter, fitting 19 if you could get them would increase the roll radius, not a good thing

    WOW That is amazing. 500 hp in that would be just the ticket. Nice evolution. All wheel drive, rear view camera and voice activated hud. That looks like a pic i saw in a car mag 2 months ago but your version is much better. I'd start saving for that if any truth to it.

    Lots of stuff going on in the older 928 world currently. I still follow the discussion boards because I have had 3 of them. There is a guy that has designed a bolt on supercharger kit that is about $7500 complete. Add this to an '87-'89 which can easily be found for $15-$22k. The guy who designed the kit is putting down @470hp and 450ft.lbs to the rear wheels with his "automatic"transmission '87 model.
    Here is his website. The 500+hp car is an '87 5-spd.

    Come on, you guys follow links don't you? that picture was in my first post! just follow the link lol. I like the general look of that rendering, but the roof seems to be taken from a targa 993?

    I had a 1983 928S for 6 years. Bought it in 84. It was my daily driver in good weather. I put 65k miles on it and never had any problems except the Paris-Rhone alternator. Had it rebuilt every winter, put it on in the spring, and was good for the rest of the season until the next snowfall. Regular interval service was reasonable. It was the best car I ever had. Great highway car. Wasn't the fastest off the line but it pulled all the way to 150mph on the speedo. Looked great. The style still does. Any idea as to cost of the new one?

    Good to see so many admirer's of the car post here......wow !! I sold them when they were new, until their demise in 1995, and loved the manual gearbox ones in particular.

    I had a 5 speed GTS as my demo for a while in 1994 that was jet black with a full "Magenta" leather interior......an electric purple color basically......women loved it.

    http://www.worlduph.com/SAMPLES/porvin2.htm

    Color sample in the 3rd row.....second from the right.

    I remember when these cars were done they couldn't give them away.......I had 15K rebates on the two in stock. Now GTS's are going up in value.

    And what's this thread doing in the Italian section anyways......it would be nice if they designed it though....
