The 928, the first water-cooled front-engine Porsche, was scorned in its day by many Porsche purists and was a flop in the United States. But the company's U.S. CEO believes it will be the next Porsche model to become a classic.
Chatting with reporters last week at the company's plant in Leipzig, Germany, Detlev von Platen said he would like to have a car like the 928 back in the lineup. It was more of a fast GT highway cruiser than a lightweight sports car, like the 911, Cayman and Boxster models.
Von Platen likes the 928 so much he wants to add one to his personal collection. He's looking for a 1995 GTS, one of just 48 imported to the United States in the car's final year of production.
