Vintage Victor’s Gander at the Gigantically Gutsy German Gem: The 1988 Porsche 928S4

Acquiring a taste for vintage cars is akin to developing a keenness for Gorgonzola or philosophical debates on Schrödinger’s cat, there’s no middle ground – it’s love or loathe, period. No “y’all” or “Ladies and Gentlemen,” this is Victor Vintage Vaughn signing in from his highbrow niche in the digital world, and today’s toast is to a distinctively German spectacle, the 1988 Porsche 928S4.

World history fans might correlate 1988 with Gorbachev’s perestroika and glasnost, where the USSR bravely opened its doors and restructured its way to a better tomorrow. This Porsche 928S4, a rare breed in itself, is the automotive personification of that bold attempt. One of the only 1,794 produced, and rarer still, one among the 65 bedecked in this unique color, could be yours for a stately sum of $59,900.

The Gorbachev of the car world, this Porsche, like its Soviet non-automotive counterpart, is not one to shy away from the restructuring of its internal systems. Recent tinkering saw some important updates to its water pump, motor mounts, and importantly, that crucial soldier in the fight against the mercilessness of summer, the air conditioning.

Peek under the hood, and this spectacular Porsche has only experienced 40,307 actual miles of life’s high and lows. A stoic survivor, much like Wall Street after Black Monday of ’87, this German powerhouse has not lost any of its initial luster. In fact, you could be driven to consider this a ’88 relic that has walked into 2022, mostly untouched by Father Time.

“Hold onto your monocles!” Is what I would usually say right now, Victor Vintage Vaughn signing off, but that phrase apparently ruffles feathers, so … stay cultivated, folks.
