1986 Porsche 928 S Auto


  • Only 4 previous keepers
  • Believed to have had a full respray in the past
  • Significant new audio install

The Appeal

The 928 has a dedicated follower base and is perfect for classic Porsche fans looking for something to be different to the 911 crowd.

This car has been with its current owner for nearly 2 years, acquiring it in March 2022. Before this, the seller tells us the car was stored for around 10 years before being purchased in our very own classified section. Since that time, the car has been used sparingly and with the purchase of another car this 928 is now surplus to requirements.

Believed to have had a full respray at some point in its history, the car now wears a handsome shade of metallic blue. The bodywork is in good condition with only minor marks around the car, a few touch ups and a cut and polish should get this car shining again.

Equipped with a 5.0L V8 engine, mated to an automatic gearbox, this is Porsche’s idea of a long-distance cruiser, a grand tourer. The seller reports that the car is capable mechanically and that the engine and gearbox are working as intended.

The History and Paperwork

Due to the car being stored for approximately 10 years, it is believed that the history behind the vehicle has been lost. The current keeper has all the history from their year of ownership.
  • Current V5C
  • MOT valid until April 2024
  • Invoice for recent audio install

The Condition

  • Believed to have had a full respray in metallic blue in the past
  • Interior is reported to be all original
  • Seller reports the car to run and drive well
  • Bodywork is in good condition with no obvious dents, scratches or damage
  • Electrics, including the pop-up headlights are reported to be working as intended
  • Interior trim is fraying in places, steering wheel for example would benefit from a re-trim
  • Wheels are in fair condition and the tyres look to have plenty of tread left

The Mechanics

  • Owner reports the car to run and drive well, the engine to be smooth and the automatic gearbox to select gear without issue
  • Having been stored for a long period of time, the underside has not had the exposure to the salted roads that time period and remains in good condition due to this
  • 5.0L V8 engine looks to be in good visual health under the bonnet with no obvious signs of excessive fluid leaks (MOT advised a minor oil leak) 
  • No obvious signs of split hoses, exposed wires, or damage to components
  • The seller reports there to be no issues with the way the car drives

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.

Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


Car & Classic prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.

Auctions are extended by 3 minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £9,999 £100.00
£10,000 to £49,999 £250.00
£50,000 to £99,999 £500.00
£100,000 + £1,000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.

You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.


We may hold a pre-authorisation charge on your card until the end of the auction when the hold will be cancelled. If you win, we'll take a security deposit which counts towards the payment for the vehicle and isn't any extra cost to you.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you're able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
