In 1977 Porsche launched an all new front-engined sports car. Originally designed as a replacement for the 911 the 928 was a luxurious grand tourer powered by a Porsche designed 4.5l V8 engine producing 240hp.
In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the classic 928, PCGB and the four UK Porsche Classic Partner Centres – Glasgow, Hatfield, Leeds and Swindon – entered a specially prepared 928 in the 2017 season of the HSCC 1970’s Roadsport Championship.
On 20 May, the classic car made its debut at Silverstone with British Le Mans winner Richard Attwood taking the wheel and qualified in ninth place out of an entry of 35 cars, finishing third overall and first in class.
The next race supported by Technicians from the Centre will be on 21 October at Silverstone. The classic 928 will be proudly displayed at Porsche Centre Swindon until it races again.
