This 1980 Porsche 928 was picked up at the factory in Germany by its original owner in September 1979, who proceeded to drive the car around Europe for a month, before having the car shipped home to Detroit. He kept the car for 20 years until selling to the 2nd owner, who also kept it for almost 20 years, up to 2018.
Finished in its original Guards Red exterior color with tan leather interior, this 928 features a binder full of documentation, all the way back to its factory delivery in 1979. This represents the purest form of design for the 928, as this example lacks side rub strips, front/rear spoilers, and rear wiper. At an original sticker price of $37,714, factory options on this car consisted of:
197 - H.D. Battery
220 - Limited Slip Differential
249 - Automatic Transmission
261 - Heated right mirror
437 - Power left seat
650 - Sunroof
Today, this car has just over 80k original miles, and it runs as great as it looks. Recent servicing by noted 928 expert Sean Ratts/928 Docs included replacement of all original fuel lines and power steering lines. Air conditioning, clock, windows, wipers, mirrors, sunroof and original Blaupunkt AM/FM cassette radio work, headlights pop up/down as intended.....the only item that does not work is the cruise control. This car comes with 2 sets of wheels/tires: 15" phone dials mounted on Michelin Pilots (great tread, but tires are 16 years old) and 16" manhole covers mounted on Uniroyal Tiger Paws (1 year old). Also included is the hardwired BEL radar detector installed by the original owner in 1983, after he attracted too much attention from the local police (imagine that, a red Porsche in suburban Detroit in the early 80's....)
Well kept and documented 928s are getting difficult to find. For more info or to schedule a test drive, please contact Chris Flaugh at 214-288-5300 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Texas Motor Works
OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE!
As a boutique auto dealer, Texas Motor Works offers the very highest quality vehicles found in domestic and international markets. In addition to the vehicle finding & selling service, we invest in exotics such as Porsche, Mercedes, BMW, Birkin, and Lotus which are for sale.
With a life-long love of vehicles, Texas Motor Works was founded in 1982 by Richard Brink. The company's standards are high and the TMW's team is focused on QUALITY! Owners of high-end vehicles understand the importance of exterior/interior maintenance, as well as the mechanical maintenance. While the class of vehicles we provide can be more expensive to find and acquire, we believe you will reap the benefits of lower maintenance and depreciation costs – thus saving your money! In the long run, these vehicles are the least costly to own!
Our searches are not limited to the Dallas-Fort Worth area; in fact, we search from coast-to-coast, as well as internationally. Why? Our experience has shown that while the DFW area is large, it is roughly 1% of the US market. Because Texas Motor Works is not constrained by the normal sales demands and high overhead costs of large automobile dealers and manufacturers, we can afford the time and effort required to find quality vehicles.
Another positive about our operation is that our inventory is at the low end of the historical depreciation curve. In other words, we can afford to be patient with sales, keeping in mind that many exotics continue to appreciate over time.
Our purchases must meet our very detailed TMW 5-Point Scale Condition Reporting System. While most vehicles maintain a 3.5 rating, our inventory must rate between 4.5 to 5 points, resulting in vehicles which are as close to new as a used car can be. Our system involves a roughly 100-point inspection, and we proudly include the condition ratings of our cars. Note: These ratings are conducted by independent service companies for your peace of mind.
The use of services such as car fax is a good resource in understanding a vehicle's history; however, we understand that most of these types of reporting services reports are completed without even SEEING the vehicle. That is why we believe our TMW 5-point Scale Condition Reporting System secures a much higher level of confidence about your purchase. It's interesting that many dealers do not offer these condition rating reports.
We have been blessed to work with a tremendous group of clients over the years and would be honored to help you find the car of your dreams. Feel free to browse our inventory and contact us at:
