Classic Car Auctions says:

A great looking 928 with a recent full service and plenty of history.

Porsche's intended replacement for the 911 may not have achieved that goal, but it wasn't for a lack of performance or technological wizardry. An alloy V8 was attached to a rear-mounted gearbox, and the galvanised body had aluminium doors and bonnet, plus body-coloured plastic bumpers - pretty radical for its time.

Critics immediately recognised the advances the 928 had made over the 911, and the car was universally praised as one of the greatest GT cars of all time. It handled, it was quick, it looked fantastic and it was comfortable. With the 928 Porsche created a serious long distance grand touring car that could also tackle twisting B-roads with ease, thanks to super-direct steering, 50/50 weight distribution and a clever Weissach rear axle that kept the car firmly planted on the road.

The 928 S4 variant debuted in late 1986 as a 1987 model, using an updated version of the 5.0L V8 producing 316 bhp. There was a fairly significant styling update which gave the car a cleaner, sleeker look. There was also a new larger torque converter for the automatic gearbox.

Here is a very well-cared for, 1988 S4 with plenty of reassuring history, a recent full service (including belts) and in a great colour combination - check out that interior!
