Porsche 928 Performance Overview

The V8 powered Porsche 928 was a fast car and the below numbers show you just how quick.

It also bridged the gap between GT and sports car better than others, thanks to the outstanding roadholding and poise. The smooth revving V8 and its good spread of torque were also popular points of praising by contemporary road testers. Performance improved over the years thanks mainly to larger and more advanced engines being added.
