    Wow

    It now holds the world record auction sale of any Porsche 928 from any year.

    I saw that as it happened, and couldn't believe it

    Local car guy Keith Martin of Sports Car Marketplace just sold his well sorted 928 for $47,000

    Well, that's madness. For only eight times that, they could have had a 917 ...

    I've always loved the 928. Front engine, liquid cooled V8, manual shift, absolutely gorgeous glass and metal work. Very reasonably priced, and endorsed by Tony (and Elvira) Montana.

    2016 XL883L Two-tone blue and white. Almost 42 hp! Status: destroyed, now owned by the insurance company. The hole in my memory starts an hour before the accident and ends 24 hours after.

    I would rather have a 1932 Buick sedan.

    To me, the only truly desirable Porsches have the engine behind the driver.

    That said, I drove a 928S4 once-and it was a helluva machine; but there's a reason they, much like Jag XJSs, were considered as the "Camaros" of their marques.

    Two greasy sons of a bigshot politico-lawyer had one in uni.
    They sold stolen exam booklets out of it.

    Well sir it is a 928/boxter laughs for all the bottom feeders seeking attention by struggling to own the bottom rung offering of a pretentious brand.

    Know a like minded jackass who was puffed up about the high mileage ugly Mercedes-Benz wagon willed to him by his moronic sire.
