When designing the 928, which went into series production as of model year 1978, the focus was on lightweight construction. The doors, front wings and bonnet were therefore made from aluminium instead of sheet steel. Behind the plastic bumpers integrated in the body shape there were also aluminium profiles that could withstand a collision at up to 8 km/h (5 mph) without any damage.
The 928 had round, electrically operated pop-up headlights that were integrated in the wings. The rounded fastback was dominated by the large window of the rear lid.
The 928 models were powered by a water-cooled V8 engine with a 90° cylinder arrangement. The displacement of the power unit was increased from an initial 4.5 litres to 5.4 litres. Power was transmitted according to the transaxle principle.
To improve aerodynamics, the models were fitted with a front and rear spoiler from type 928 S (MY 1979) onwards.
The rear axle of the 928 was a completely new development. What made this double-wishbone suspension – also known as the Weissach axle – unique was its toe-in stabilising effect. This worked more or less as a passive rear-wheel steering and thus made a significant contribution to the active safety of the Gran
928 GT (Spring 1989-MY 1991)
The 928 GT was sportier than the 928 S4. Thanks to various modifications, its power unit generated up to 330 hp. The GT was delivered as standard without side protection strips and with wheels in a unique design.
928 GTS (MY 1992-95)
The last evolutionary stage of the 928 model featured flared rear wings, a red light panel at the rear, a rear wing painted in exterior colour, exterior mirrors in the Cup design plus 17" Cup rims as standard. The 5.4-litre engine of the GTS generated 350 hp.

Since 01 September 2018 all new cars are approved in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP). You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp. From 01 January 2019, all fuel consumption figures are shown as determined in accordance with WLTP. CO₂ figures will be shown as NEDC-equivalent values, as CO₂ based taxation will continue to be based on an NEDC value (derived from WLTP) until 06 April 2020. For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
