40 years of the Porsche 928 at the AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix
Porsche Classic showcased itself on an area of 16,000 m² in the immediate vicinity of the race track. In focus: the Porsche 928. Introduced to the public in spring 1977, it became the first sports car ever to be distinguished with the title "Car of the Year" one year later. The 928 was intended to replace the 911 – produced since 1964 – as a third series, because the Porsche Executive Board considered the growth potential of the 911 to be exhausted. As a Gran Turismo with significantly more driving comfort and a large amount of luggage space, the 928 broke the design boundaries as a luxury sports car. It was an elegant 2+2 Coupé in a state-of-the-art lightweight design, with both doors, the front wings and the bonnet made of aluminum. The bodyshell was manufactured from hot-dip galvanized sheet steel.
The success was underpinned by a philosophy typical to Porsche: the perfect combination of sportiness and everyday usability. This was reason enough to make these models the focus of this year's Porsche presentation at the AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix.
