Hi im kevin do you have vin number ?
you have only supplied 10 numbers can you look on your title or registration and find the full vin number please? thank you
what is engine size....there is a US 928 model but this could be a gray market vehicle...so let me know engine size
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
please do rate me as my compensnsation depends on it
yes 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
dont have 4.7 US model...4.5 but the vin check verifies its not US model
get me a picture of the tag where vin is on door
do you still require assistance
not sure what has happened with your lights but there is no 4.7 us model...maybe someone changed motor? the vin number is ***** coming up as a valid number either so take a pic of the label on door for me ok?
you need more help or would you prefer I opt out?
it should say on there where vehicle is made...by the way...like made in Germany...can you plz take pic
perhaps the vehicle was driven in different countries with different requirements
so you are only owner since new
The 928 featured a large, front-mounted and water-cooled V8 engine driving the rear wheels. Originally displacing 4.5 L and featuring a single overhead camshaft design, it produced 219 hp (163 kW/222 PS) for the North American market and 237 hp (176 kW/240 PS) in other markets
the other markets means European and the 237hp means 4.7.....4.5 is 219 hp that is US engine...sound good that information source is wikipedia
Please do rate me as my compensation depends on that thanks for using Just Answer
yes a paradox do you have pics of vehicle front and back?
does the engine tag say 4700 or 4.7?
that emission tag has US written all over it...well so much for Wikipedia....I know I'm being a pain do you have pic of engine or any underhood lables
looks like an American model with a euro engine package
Its not a gray market car
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
OF COURSE THIS WOULD BE LIKE 2 YEARS....VERY INTERESTING
well 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
I have seen components in vehicles belonging to a prior year and vise versa a later year
let me do some more research....
I'm curious what the engine sticker says...4.7 I'm sure...any other details form that sticker. no doubt its an American model question is the engine for that year...let me do some more research...perhaps I'm wrong the 4.7 pt in before 80 in some models
ok nice nice and do you have any engine stickers under hood or decals with engine specs on them anywhere thanks
It will have engine displacement and specs on there....does it say 4.7 on that sticker? what else does it say
