We were 'talking' about it 7 years ago would you believe. Surprised

7 years! what

It's a shame the new 928 never materialised, but from this thread it's clear that Porsche decided to create a new 928 by the backdoor in the form of a bigger 911 ... PC Grin

If you can find a C/Sport they would be an amazing keeper/investment, I know they've climbed in value a lot recently.

Very cheap to own and run.


Now that IS a good looking car ….
!!

Ill take a 968 Sport please …. perfect for UK roads

Yes I remember and has sent the rendered drawing to my man at Porsche to see what he knew about it …… he denied any knowledge at the time , I wasn't too chuffed , thought he was holding back....
It was a better looking car than the Panamera iterations became ..

Boxsters and Cayman are the entry level Porsche sports cars but they too are big compared to a 924.


Bigger than a 993 too.

BIG lazy front engined... Seems you forgot to add water cooled... ? (-:

Lazy, well that depends upon how you care to drive I guess, and my old pal Tony sure hustled his 928 around a small and tight circuit in ways that impressed, the car seemed to shrink relative to my expectations of it`s capabilities..

As for expense of 928 parts, seems to me that even in the cheapest of Porsches the parts were ever VERY expensive, even when they had VW stamped on them as their source of supply..? Who ever heard of paying for the name...?

Seem to have read somewhere in the distant past that Porsche were to start building a Chelsea tractor, and that it might just keep the brand alive during a period of difficulties.... who would have thunk it..? But then the interweb is full of lies is it not.. though I have seen tractors carrying the Porsche name have I not... Yeah must all be in my imagination Question Floor

The Porsche GT car, a 21st Century 928 if you like, is the Panamera. Have you seen the size of that? Grin


Big they are, but they don't feel it when you drive them. For a large car they have a light, nimble feel to them.

968 Sport is a lovely car and I was seriously interested in one.

Casting my mind back, it was in 2007!!! WTF

I can't believe where the years have gone........... good ones, at that time, were fetching £10k Dont know

At that time the 968 was the best handling Porsche. Engine in the front, trans-axle at the rear...perfect balance.

....and even by today's standards, a good looking car.

I bought that car from an OPC in Exeter, had it for a year and sold it as I had it on the 'drip' and it was costing too much, needed a service and tyres as well.

A couple of years later I got a call from the lady who had it saying she was selling it but had lost the radio code. I asked what she was being offered for it, as it was at an OPC trade in price it was just book, so I offered her a bit more and bought it the following day. Fully serviced, new tyres and battery and only 6k miles in that time. Ran it for another couple of years then sold it again, when I last checked on the register it had disappeared off the DVLA in the early 2000's so it was either exported or written off.
The guy who bought it off me actually sent me letter saying what a brilliant car it was and thanked me for selling it to him, that doesn't happen very often!
I lived in Inverness when I owned it and everyone thought I was dealing drugs or something, it was worse I was selling mobile phones!!

As if by magic ......... this weeks (3rd April) Autocar pages 8-9 features an artists rendering of a possible 2 door/ 4 seat Porsche based on the Panamera but looking far more like a stretched 992.

It looks great.

Always seems to me that the more models a manufacturer has in its range, the less premium the brand appears.

Remember when BMW and Mercedes were still proper premium manufacturers? They used to be special mainly because they weren't a common sight - nowadays their ranges are huge and every Tom, Dick and Harriet has one.

Hope Porsche keeps the range of models pretty much where it is right now.

The 992 footprint is almost the same as the Macan too. Lending support to the notion that the Macan is indeed a front engined 911 in Cuban heels and with slightly more leg room in the back.
