Abandoned for 20 Years, Porsche 928 Starts Right Up

20 years is a long time for a car to remain idle, so it says something for Porsche that this 928 still works.

In its day, there were a lot of people who seriously hated the Porsche 928. It was intended to replace the 911, and the fans of that iconic sports car saw the 928 as a threat. Perhaps that is why the owner of the 1979 Porsche 928 in the video abandoned it in a field back in 1993. The Luxury4Play forum member who made the video tells that the car obviously had problems 20 years ago, and this was traced back to the starter, which was covered in hammer marks.

But with a new solenoid and a fresh tank of gas, the car started up. No longer a threat, the 928 is now just a great find. And hey, it’s a V8 Porsche.
