Porsche 928 by David Hemmings Published 15 Jul 2021
David Hemmings has been the register secretary for the 928 register at Porsche Club GB since before I bought my first Porsche 928 in 1998, so naturally is not only a patriarch within the community, but also an important voice in the 928 coterie. David called me the other day, and with great excitement asked me to review his new book. He had recieved the final copy and it was off to print. Unsuprisingly, the book is called 'Porsche 928' and builds on his previous publications '928 Essential buyers guide' and 'The Real 928' which was originaly a collection of articles he produced for Porsche Club GB.
Sunday morning saw me sit down to read the book, about 100 pages, properly.

No annual meet for 2020
It is very sad to have had to cancel our annual meet up for only the second time ever (snow a decade ago was the last time). We have of course no choice during the pandemic.
Each year we get together, talk about the 928, have a nice lunch and renew our shared interest in these amazing machines we have been able to own and the like of which will never be seen again.
Each year too, Alex does her Christmas cards in front of the fire in the Merry Miller. She wanted you all to know she's doing them today ☺

I own two 928s that are amongst the best in the UK. This is the story of how I reached this point – “928 Heaven” with a 1991 guards red 928 GT and a 1994 midnight blue 928 GTS with manual gear box. My 928s may not have the lowest mileages, but the bodywork is original, they are mechanically maintained to perfection and everything works. At the time of writing the GT has done 97,000 miles and the GTS 101,000 miles, but the service history is impeccable for both. The GT has 31 service stamps in the book and the GTS has 21, plus all the stamps for change of brake fluid, coolant and cam-belt – in total 29 stamps for the GT and 25 stamps for the GTS. I also have invoices in binders for all the work carried out (apart from the first two years for both cars). It is often said the best cars never reach the open market and are sold by word of mouth, which is how I came by both my 928s.
I first took an interest in 928s at the launch in 1977. The car really did look space-age compared to most cars of the era, and light years ahead of its time. I have always liked the front engine rear wheel drive coupe concept, so the scene was set!

Porsche 928 S4 with Sport Equipment
There are quite a few pics of Porsche 928 S4 SE / 928 S4 Sports dotted around the website. I've tried to collect them all here.
SE's were only Red, White Black or Silver. There were 42. Several have been scrapped/written off.
