SOLD: 1990 Porsche 928 S4

Recommended Posts

Up for sale is my 1990 Porsche 928 S4 that was originally imported from Hong Kong in 1997. During my ownership over the last three years I have spent over $10,000 on it and have driven it less than 1,000 KMs. Unfortunately, my new property doesn’t have enough storage for all my toys so this one is now on the market for less than what it owes me. 

It’s far from a show car cosmetically and the price reflects this. Up to the new owner to continue to enjoy as-is or to further spruce it up. The seats need refurbishing, some things don’t work and the exterior is tired, but it’s sharply-priced and is currently the cheapest registered and running 928 S4 in the country. Great value for someone who wants to own one of the pinnacle German V8 grand tourers of the 20th century. 

The car is factory RHD, all matching-numbers but has been repainted in Vesuvius Purple at some point. The paint is average at best, I’ve never been too fussy with my cars so it’s never bothered me. The only other body modification are the 928 GTS mirrors, and during my ownership I’ve added the genuine staggered 17” Cup 1 rims from a 964 Turbo. Plenty of tread on the Continental Contisport Contact 3s but they’re pretty old. The wheels are a perfect fit for the S4 and are much better than the original 16” “manhole covers” (they also come with the car), gives it a nice “stance” and the 9” wide wheels looks great from the back. 

The interior is tired and the front seats are ripped. The plan was to slowly repair and replace items as time went on, but that will now be up to the new owner. It’s currently presentable but any fussy buyers should look much higher up the price range of what’s on the market. 

The previous owner had the timing belt and water pump replacement sorted back in 2018, it hasn’t seen much road since so it should be fine for a while. When I received the car, the gearbox was not engaging reverse, so I enlisted AutoArt to rebuild and refit the original automatic transmission at 171,447 KMs. They also took the opportunity to replace the diff slave cylinder and other bits that required attention. After that it was shipped off to SV Auto to correct some electrical gremlins. The car received a major service from Nurburgring Mechanical around 12 months ago, and with how 2020 played out the car has barely seen any road since. Battery was replaced during the service too. Currently the odometer sits at around 172,000 KMs. Please Google the updates that came along in 1990, the late-model S4s have some notable revisions over the 80’s versions. 

I strongly recommend any prospective buyers to inspect the car as it has its fair share of bumps and bruises, I don’t want to underplay that this is not a perfect car. If you’ve been around the marquee, you can see I’ve enlisted reputable specialists to help me with the car during my ownership and all receipts are available for interested parties to review. Currently on non-transferable club registration, the new owner will be responsible with obtaining a RWC in their state. Please contact me if you’d like to arrange an inspection or if you have any questions. Car is located in Thornbury, Melbourne.
