Some of the major features of the Porsche 928 were as follows.

- Additionally it offered excellent refinement as well as comforts for the users.
- In terms of equipments it could compare with the luxury Sedan.
Logic behind production of Porsche 928 was that this car could suitably substitute the more compact albeit cumbersome Porsche 911. Though it was supposed to be the icon car of the company, the 911 was not as popular as the Porsche 356. Manufacturer Company assumed that the lighter and more fancied 928 could fill out the void successfully.
One of the unique features of Porsche 928 was that it was a front engine model. In fact, the company has marketed only six during its 64 years of existence till date. 928 was one of the four coupes that the Company produced with front-engine. However the distinctive feature in 928 was the V8 engine that was front mounted. Last but not the least; it was also the first model with V8 engine that was taken up for mass production.
