The old man would spin in his grave if he saw what they’re passing off as a Porsche these days,” raved the gas-station attendant. “They’ve lost the original concept. Where’s the rear engine? Where’s the air cooling?” Our rebuttal, emphasizing the performance virtues of the 1985-model 928S, failed to sway the man’s thinking one iota. To the pump jockey and to many enthusiasts, the only real Porsches are those that perpetuate the design themes of the original 356 model, a car born nearly 40 years ago.
That’s a shame, because the good doctor would doubtless be proud of this new 928S. Ferdinand Porsche believed that a sports car must offer transportation superior to a regular sedan’s, and this doctrine is a cornerstone of the firm that bears his name today. Sports cars necessarily have smaller payloads than sedans, but for this reason they can be more fuel-efficient and be designed for higher speeds. And, unlike our federal government, Porsche has always understood that, in transportation, faster is better. Jet aircraft have replaced ocean liners and trains for long-distance travel; people drive cars instead of riding bicycles; and even bicycles are faster than they used to be. Faster transportation, simply put, is better transportation.
By the speediness criterion, the 1985 Porsche 928S is a substantial improvement over its predecessor. Top speed is up 10 mph, to 154. Our five-speed test car rocketed from a standing start to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds and hit 100 mph less than eight seconds later; the old car required 6.2 and 17.8 seconds, respectively. And the new model burned through the standing quarter-mile in 14.0 seconds at 102 mph, compared with 14.7 seconds at 94 mph for last year’s 928. We also tested the automatic version, and its performance is similarly improved. The automatic’s 0-to-60 and quarter-mile times now match those of last year’s five-speed, and its top speed is up 10 mph, to 152.
