1980-1989 Porsche 928. It was designed in 1977 and continued throughout the entire decade of the 1980's. The Porsche 928 was not only a first for Porsche utilizing a front mounted water-cooled V8 engine, but it was also a first for the industry, setting a new standard in what a serious sports car should be. It had everything! In fact, so much so, that it saw few changes throughout the 80's as it waited for the rest of the industry to catch up to it!
