25/01/2024 – Porsche is launching its second all-electric model.
Macan sets new standards: the first all-electric SUV from Porsche
You can re-watch the recording of the live stream of the world premiere of the new all-electric Macan on the Porsche newsroom website.
The new Macan with powertrains of up to 470 kW (639 PS, Macan Electric Models: Electric power consumption* combined (WLTP) 21.1 – 17.9 kWh/100 km, CO₂ emissions* combined (WLTP) 0 g/km, Electric range* combined (WLTP) 516 – 613 km, Electric range* in town (WLTP) 665 – 784 km) delivers E-Performance on any terrain and a high level of day-to-day usability. Sports-car-like performance figures are matched by high-performance fast charging at up to 270 kW and up to 613 km of range in WLTP.
The all-electric Porsche Macan will celebrate its world premiere on Thursday, 25 January 2024, in Singapore.
All-Electric Porsche Macan – 25th January 2024
You can follow the live stream of the world premiere of the new all-electric Macan on the Porsche newsroom website on 25 January from 12:30 p.m. (CET). Following the world premiere, it will be available as a recording.
The heart of its powertrain is a fundamentally revised four-litre V8 turbo engine.
More E-Performance and comprehensively revamped engines
Porsche offers a total of four efficient E-Hybrid powertrains for the new Panamera, in response to the high demand for this type of drive system. All E-Hybrid variants benefit from greater performance, range and efficiency. The Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid is ready at market launch. The heart of its powertrain is a fundamentally revised four-litre V8 turbo engine. The output of the newly developed electric motor is 140 kW (190 PS). Together, they create a system output of 500 kW (680 PS). The system torque reaches an impressive 930 Nm. Porsche integrates the electric motor into the housing of the comprehensively redesigned eight-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. Dispensing with a separate E-motor housing saves around five kilograms. The integration of the unit into the oil circuit of the transmission also optimises the heat balance of the electric drive unit and allows higher continuous output from the electric motor.
The Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid sprints to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and boasts a top speed of 315 km/h. Its battery capacity is now 25.9 kWh. This enables an equivalent electric range of up to 91 kilometres in the combined WLTP cycle or 83–93 km in the city cycle. A new 11 kW on-board AC charger shortens the charging time at suitable charging points to 2 hours and 39 minutes.

"The control concept that Porsche is now using in the new Panamera is innovative and intuitive: the Porsche Driver Experience puts the driver at the centre and creates the perfect balance between analogue and digital elements. The sports car among luxury saloons is characterised by a particularly high-quality and extremely sporty interior ambience."
"Wouldn't you love a Porsche 928 like this? This is what a 928 interior re-imagined for the CarPlay and Digital age would look like."
The new model Porsche Panamera will feature the driver-centred Porsche Driver Experience control concept that was first introduced in the Taycan. It offers a fully digital display, a wide range of customisation options and intuitive operation. A key feature of the concept is the grouping of the control elements relevant for driving in the immediate vicinity of the steering wheel. All elementary functions are therefore quick and intuitive for the driver to access. This simplifies operation of the new Panamera in all driving situations, and especially during dynamic driving.

The definitive (simple) Porsche 928 RDK bypass
Andrew wrote this a decade ago. It got lost somewhere in the multitude of site updates but he sent it to me again and here it is
Back in 1995 Porsche was in a mess. The flagship 928 GTS was at the end of the line and selling very poorly. While the 928 remains my favourite Porsche by miles, it cannot be denied that it had seen little in the way of modernising investment since the introduction of the GTS in 1992. It was emblematic of the problems with the production car model range. What could be done to stem the losses and modernise? The Boxster (986) - that's what. Officially, 164,875 Porsche Boxster (986) vehicles were produced across the range of models between model year 1997 and 2004 - saving the company and its brand from an uncertain future and paving the way for modern production practices.
Big bang for your buck? 200BHP classics for £10k
Classic car weekly published this page on April 8 2015 and featured the Porsche 928 as an example of a 200BHP (its more) classic that you can buy for £10k (you can't, or if you do it will be a nail). Ignoring their prices which talk of Concours cars for £8500, there are some good points. The buying tips aren't bad. The other cars in their list included 60's Jag 420, 80's Vauxhall Carlton (why?), 90's TVR Chimaera 4.0. They don't make any kind of competition for the Porsche 928 for me.

The 928 is a true enigma. It seems impossible for a journalist to write a story about the 928 without citing the car’s failure to replace the 911, or the perception that buying one as a classic car is a potential minefield. But this is the very same car that was deemed the future back in 1977, and with good reason. This is the car – the only sports car – to win a Car of the Year gong. Ok, say what you like about this motoring equivalent of the European song contest, but for a sports car to win outright – that’s something quite profound. It is a car that always tried to be many things on four wheels, but as the years passed, was tasked with becoming a quite different sort of vehicle: an aggressive sports GT rather than an all-round everyday supercar.
All you need now is the right tyre
Porsche AG conducted sufficient modern tyre formula testing to issue a new report on modern tyres on classic Porsche models.
The report covers all models but there are the Porsche 928 details only.

What to pay when buying a Porsche 928 in the UK in 2022
"Judging by the car you have chosen, you are a motorist of a special breed, and you are probably no novice when it comes to automobiles." - Porsche 928 S4 owners manual.
Prices rose astronomically from 2015-2021 even for ordinary and rotten cars with no history and zillions of owners. Many of these cars still do not represent good value and will require tens of thousands to be spend on missing maintenance, recommissioning and paint and fixtures. Dealers are sitting on expensive cars that have been around for a long time.
Notable exceptions are the truly mint cars with excellent histories and regular use which have sold for really strong money since 2014. The Egyptian embassy 928 S4 SE with 10,000 miles on it sold for £132,000 including fees, and a 30k mile Porsche 928 GT sold for £43,000 at the same auction on 14th November 2020. Caveat emptor though, these were exceptional cars. Please don't buy a rotten Porsche 928 unless it is inexpensive or it will break your heart. It is relatively easy to find good ones. It is relatively hard to find perfect ones. It is expensive to turn a good one into a perfect one. Start by coming to our meetings (when we can have them again), and talking to owners. There are over 800 on the road in the UK out of an original UK population of well over 4,000. The Porsche 928 is not a particularly rare car.
This guide is published only at 928.org.uk - the home of the 928 community in the UK and the 928uk mail list.
Please don't rely solely on this guide. Get plenty of advice and opinions from our community. Read on for full analysis. Not everyone agrees with me about pricing. I have only been monitoring 928 pricing for 20 years after all.

Swap out the old broken Blaupunkt Toronto for a 2020 Blaupunkt Bremen SQR 46 DAB+
This is relatively straightforward as long as you dont mind a little electrical connecting. (Please dont use Scotch Locks think about the next person rewiring in ten years time swearing at you)! You will also need a little patience. My personal choice would be to retain a Blaupunkt OEM look and Blaupunkt have in 2020 relaunched a radio which was originally fitted to the Porsche 928! - the Blaupunkt Bremen SQR 46 DAB+ (Amazon UK) which has been updated for the 21st century.

Porsche 928 Model variations and features
These were some of the oldest pages on 928.org.uk. They showed participants cars for almost all model year variations and for a long time we had a locator to match people to cars. In editing the site in 2020 (in a long overdue sort out); the names of contributors have been removed since owners change and we have a responsibility to privacy that wasn't there in 1999 when this page was originally written. Ive added galleries for each model year of 928 as there are zillions of pictures on the website. To download any given picture you have to be logged in to the website as a registered user (which is different to being on the 928uk mail list).
