Porsche 928: The most genuine Porsche?

  • Dear V8er, many have hoped it, mach one believed. In the current magazine "Oldtimer Markt", the 75 years of Porsche are reviewed, accompanied by the question of which Porsche is the most genuine, the purest Porsche of all Porsches. No, not the 356 or the 911, the author Blaube calls the 928 the purest of all Porsches, because there is not an iota of VW in it, which all the series before and after it cannot claim. Below the text excerpt.

  • @Gelie: Yes, he did. The author Blaube is ever known for his particular view of things. He has presented his personal view, not a scientifically correct one. In his multi-page article, he shows that Porsche only left behind the usual, and often criticized, close relationship with VW with the 928. This connection from the 356 onwards is quite understandable, since Porsche developed the Beetle. Consequently, he had access to much of what was needed to build the first 356. In the evolution, the bond between the big company VW and the formerly very small Porsche has remained until today. As is well known, the main shareholder in VW is the Porsche-Piech family. But all this cannot diminish the joy and pride of every Porsche driver about his Porsche, whether 911, 924, 928 or modern water-cooled or E-vehicles. A Porsche is a Porsche and remains a Porsche. That is my view of things.

    In this :D sense, have a good trip and fun with our brand,

  • The 928 is proof, chiseled in sheet metal, that the guys at Porsche didn't know their customers. Seriously planned as a replacement for the 911 great car, but completely past the target group developed manifestation of vehicle construction.

    I had the pleasure to drive the first 928 delivered to Switzerland in 1977... as a little boy from the luxurious back seat. The thing was like from another planet, a design that was far ahead of its time.

    But it was already clear back then that the idea of substituting the 911 would never work, even if the 928 could do everything better than the 911s available at the time.

    Above all, at its debut in 1977, the 928 was not only technically superior to all other Porsches by "light years", but the "beloved 911" was a silly "stone age car" against it ...

    The 928 was Porsche's "top model" at the time and was supposed to replace the 911, which would have been more than appropriate. The "cast iron" with their completely irrational 911 - love prevented it. - Put today a 78 - 928 next to a `78 - 911 ...

    Sure, the tastes are different and some needed something like a "real Fahmaschine" of Porsche, where the sweat beads stand on the forehead while driving and with which one, if one did not pay hellish attention, landed in the curve beside the track - especially in wet conditions - "Weissach - axle" - what is that ?" - today unthinkable that a Porsche buyer accepts something like that.

    The 930 Turbo could have been left in the program for this.

    Sorry, not true. They were not stupid. The 928 was placed on the market at the time as an alternative to the Mercedes SLC ( C 107) 6 Series - BMW (E 24) and Jaguar XJS.

    The strategic consideration that the 928 would replace the 911 in the medium term came from the conviction that the 911 would not be able to meet exhaust and noise regulations in the future.
