Transformation Tuesday: June’s Jetronic Supercharged Porsche 928
There is no reason why everyone should own a Porsche one time in their lives. June heard it. A howl from beyond. His need for a Porsche in his life is this immaculate V8 speed machine, a thunderbolt from a future past.
As you can see, the 928 is one of the more early body style cars, when its lines were the cleanest and the sharpest. The earlier American models only made about 219 horsepower from their 4.5-liter V8s, but that’s more than enough for a car weighing only a couple hundred pounds up from 3,000.
The Porsche 928 is a pretty incredible car for a lot of reasons, most of which revolve around the fact that it’s the only well-respected serious sports car with rear sun visors (heard me right, they’re sun visors, in the BACK that was and still a cool thing!!) But that’s not what I’m talking about today. Our client & great friend June brought in his beautiful Porsche 928 for a full restoration from us.. I mean total engine rebuild, suspension overhaul, headers, interior, transmission rebuild, wheels & tires + one SUPER awesome detail that we think is totally BADASS.
Enter: Jetronic Supercharger
June likes power, but who the hell doesn’t. we selected this STG2 Supercharger Kit from 928 Motorsports which includes a complete air-to-water intercooler system for higher boost and greater output. This Supercharger will add about 130 safe, reliable HP to this 16v motor
