"plagued with electrical issues due to the cheap grade of wiring and parts used during construction" ^^^That would also then apply to the 911's you seem to adore. Same company, remember? "All 928 where abused and had poor maintenance records due to lock of TLS by comparison to 911." ^^^I see, and therefore ALL 911's are loved and cared for. Two nice buckets you got there for sorting. Wish it were that simple. "The parts premium for these particular cars exceed exotic Italian makes." ^^^ 3x domestic (US) parts costs is what I always heard. I never worried about it - they are "driver cars" (meant to be driven) and very reliable, as long as any deferred maintenance is caught up. What used to happen when the 928 was undervalued (not long ago), is that many enthusiasts would buy them (cheaply) but could not maintain them, so deferred maintenance accumulated for the next buyer. Thats why a PPI (pre-purchase inspection) is important when buying any car. After catching up on its deferred maintenance, my first 928's ongoing maintenance was inconsequential - worst year I recall cost me a total of $2000 and included upgrades. This is for an 86. The last of the 928's rolled out in 1995, so the newest you will find will still be 25 years old. "It will be absolutely impossible to restore any warped interior panelling since it used molded paper cardboard on all interior panels poorly glued to the vinyl. Not in the distant past we restored some and sold them." ^^^You contradict yourself there, and you are wrong about the panels. Thanks to a great and supportive 928 community, I restored my own warped fiberboard (not cardboard) panels. Straightforward process and I rarely do any of my own wrenching on my car. You are clearly upset about 928's and I dont know what made you that way, but spouting misinformation causes me to believe it was more a personal incident than a factual one and I hope you are able to move past it. They are wonderful, well built, and very rewarding cars, once you find a good one, and there are plenty of good ones out there.
