1990 Porsche 928
When designing the 928, which was mass-produced from model year 1978, the focus was on lightweight construction. For this reason, the doors, front wings and bonnet were all made of aluminium instead of sheet steel. Integrated into the bodyshell shape behind the plastic bumpers, there were also aluminium profiles that could withstand an impact at up to 8 km/h (5 mph) without sustaining damage.
The 928 had round headlights, which were integrated into the wings and could be raised electrically. The rounded fastback was dominated by the large window on the rear lid.
The 928 models were powered by a water-cooled V8 engine with a 90° cylinder arrangement. The engine’s displacement was initially 4.5 litres and was later increased to 5.4 litres. Power was transmitted via a transaxle construction.
