Owning, Driving, and Documenting the Sixth-ever Porsche 928

Despite what the controversy may lead you to believe, we love the Porsche 928. Owning any example of Zuffenhausen’s exotic and beautiful V8 GT supercoupe would be a privilege, let alone the sixth one ever made—the very one lucky Rennlist member and car owner Jadz928 details in an amazing 32-page-long thread.

Apparently “number six” was used as a press car, and the thread even includes presonal correspondence with legendary Road & Track journalist and Porschephile Joe Rusz—it was the first 928 he ever drove. Full of fascinating insight and period magazine and press shots of this important car, it’s a great read that we highly recommend.

Thanks for the “shout out” team Petro! 🙂

Ownership of this ‘Number Six’ 928 has been an awesome journey, life changing, matter of fact. It spawned a 928 restorarion business, [url=”http://928classics.com/”]928 Classics[/url], and the aquistion of [url=”http://forums.rennlist.com/rennforums/928-forum/647617-early-porsche-928-restoration-number-one-preproduction-press-car-1rc.html”]the first 928 produced, Number One.[/url]

The plan is to have #6 ready for PCA concours preservation class by 2015. Also, by the end of the year will have #6 registered with the [url=”http://www.historicvehicle.org/FIVA-ID-Card”]HVA and FIVA [/url].
