I have a 1986-1/2, 928S with a 5, speed manual transmission. I'm surprised that the author of this article didn't mention it. It is a low production, special version, that  retains the appearance of the original version with upgrades that would become standard on the 1987.

Worth it to o get all the kinks out and drive it, which evidently people do without fear of putting on the mileage. Some have reached 600,000 miles, without a rebuild, they were made that well!
