    For non-vehicle developers: What is a "package" ?

    I noticed the same thing...in the current 928 "grandson" from Affalterbach, the AMG GT , you have significantly less space inside. Exterior design, transaxle with front mid-engine is almost identical in the AMG GT, including dimensions, while the 928 has significantly more space inside. However, the 928 body is stable and accident-proof even by today's standards.

    Hello Thommy

    Unfortunately, I have to disagree with you on the subject of accident safety. I suspect that the 928 would fail a crash test these days.

    Why?

    It has no components made of high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel in the A-pillar, core cell or crash elements.

    Today's aluminum components are also much harder and more stable.

    One advantage is the transaxle unit, which absorbs a certain amount of the force in a frontal crash and also transfers it to the rear.

    LG, Walter
