1986 Porsche 928 S4


  • Presentable car with MOT 
  • Described by seller as a restoration project 
  • Interior in good condition
  • Recent independent health check 
  • Driven 200 miles by seller in December 

The Appeal

The 928 is emerging from the 911’s shadow as enthusiasts rediscover its multifold abilities. In the annals of effortlessly powerful 2+2 GTs, the 928 can mix it easily with the very best from Ferrari, Aston Martin and Maserati.
The S4 gained the later 5litre version of the V8 - good for over 300bhp - plus some aesthetic and luxury trim improvements. These very well-built cars make excellent classics because they are so usable - and perfect for long-distance tours like the NC500 or across the Continent. 
With interest growing, this 1986 S4 offers a tantalising opportunity for the enthusiast. It was bought by the seller in December as a project after 13 years in storage. In typical Porsche fashion it covered the 200 miles home without fault. He is now selling it as a project due to a change of circumstances. 
Running, presentable, with a good interior and MOT to April 2024, it looks like the sort of project that could be chipped away at as you enjoy it.

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.
