When the 928 was first launched in 1978, Porsche viewed it as a possible replacement for the 911. While the 911 was and is still today considered a pure sports car, the 928 was a Grand Tourer and one of few Porsches to feature a front engine design. Porsche engineers were able to achieve a 50/50 weight distribution by mounting a transaxle in the rear. This achievement was praised given the V8 engine layout and made the 928 an extremely well handling car with more potential for higher power output. The accolades quickly came in for Porsche and the 928 was awarded the 1978 European Car of the Year, one of very few sports cars to ever claim the title. Considered the flagship performance GT car of its day, the 928 Porsche is still capable of leaving an impression against modern sports cars.
Midway through the 1986 928S model year production, Porsche introduced several improvements. Cars with a VIN sequence number exceeding 1001 are referred to as the 1986.5 models and featured a 5.0 liter V8 engine. A 16 valve cylinder head allowed for an improved torque curve and produced 288 horsepower. The braking system was upgraded to ABS beginning in the 1986 model year, but the 1986.5 models featured larger brakes that would eventually be featured on the 928S4 models beginning in 1987. The higher level of performance matched with the lighter 928S platform makes the 1986.5 928S one of the most sought-after 928 Porsche models, especially in rare 5-speed manual transmission form.
The 1986.5 Porsche 928S Sunroof Coupe featured here is finished in stunning Guards Red with an impeccably kept Gray Beige leather interior. This magnificent 928S Sunroof Coupe is among one of the finest examples we have had the pleasure of offering in many years. It comes fitted with many desirable options including a 5-speed manual transmission as well as climate control air conditioning, electric sunroof and much more. Accompanying this investment-grade 1986.5 Porsche 928S Sunroof Coupe is its original books, tools, original brochure, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity, window sticker photo copy and over 30 years of service records. We are proud to offer this example to the most demanding collector or investor who desires the best. Ready to make an investment that you can actually enjoy?

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).
In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle. If you deem the vehicle is not as represented upon personal inspection, we will not only refund your deposit, but will also reimburse your airfare at the cost of a coach ticket. Feedback must be left at the time of delivery upon final inspection.
Pertaining to non-eBay winners: Anyone who has provided a deposit but whose purchase is still pending, please note that said vehicle will not be held and is subject to being sold at any time until all contingencies are removed and the purchase order is signed.
The advertised mileage represents the actual miles when the car was posted online. These vehicles are test-driven and actual mileage may vary at the time of sale.
All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
Daniel Schmitt & Co. reserves the right to end the auction at any time.
