Porsche 928 – 40 years

Unveiled in March 1977 and subsequently crowned European Car of the Year, Porsche’s all-new flagship went on to enjoy an 18-year career and worldwide sales of more than 61,000. With a new water-cooled 4.5-litre V8 engine mounted up front, the 928 was hardly in the classic Porsche tradition; but with at least 240bhp on tap, plus excellent handling (thanks to its near 50/50 weight distribution), it was a seriously capable grand tourer. The 928 enjoyed numerous upgrades throughout its career, with the engine increasing to 5.4-litres and a massive 350bhp before it finally bowed out in 1995.
