Most everyone fell in love with some car in their youth that has retained a special place in their heart. For me it was the Porsche 928. A beautiful supercar that Porsche built in the late seventies; it was supposed to replace the famous 911 as their flagship product. It received all kinds of awards from the automotive-who’s-who of the day leaving the engineers back in Germany feeling a sense of mission-accomplished.
The automotive buying public had different ideas and the brutish V8 from Zuffenhausen suffered in sales and had to eventually hand the company-image back to its older brother the 911.
The 928’s best hope was in the 1983 Hollywood smash: Risky Business. Where a young Tom Cruise and Rebecca DeMornay take ‘daddy’s’ 928 out and end up putting it in the lake.
For those of us that remember the movie here’s a fun treat for you:
It isn’t Marty McFly’s DeLorean but if you’re feeling inspired to dance in your living room without any pants we won’t blame you.
