 replied 5 months ago

grey market means it was made in Europe....if its a 4.7 its a euro model if it was a 4.5 it would be American

y​es when I put your vin number in it does not register so that means its not a US model...otherwise it would recognize which is why I asked you if this was accurate info....alldata, Mitchel,l identifix, motor will only recognize US models when doing an electronic vin check...I checked all...so you have a European model which is what you wanted to know...no 928a US model...any more questions if not plz rate me...thanks

That is great news! I have a European Model wow.
The research that I found is also different and confusing - people talk about side lights and fog in back. I don't have a fog in back?Is it a fact that all your PMs do not have a fog and back? Thank you

Porsche introduced a refreshed 928 S into the European market in 1980 model year, although it was summer of 1982 and MY 1983 before the model reached North America. Externally, the S wore new front and rear spoilers and sported wider wheels and tires than the older variant, but the main change for the 928 S was under the hood, where a revised 4.7 L engine was used. European versions debuted with 300 PS (221 kW/297 hp), and were .....SO IT LOOKS LIKE YOU GOT THE 80 MODEL 4.7...SO MORE AND MORE LOOKING LIKE A US MODEL BASED ON THIS INFO...SOMETIMES MANUFACTURES ARE A YEAR OFF WHEN THEY IMPLEMENT CHANGES

w​ell when I read the article it says the 4.5 was used in American models for emissions purposes but later on they put the 4.7 in early 80s maybe this year was an exception? perhaps they put some 4.7. sometimes manuf. will implement changes
