Note from Overseas
We just received this great note from a new - non-US - 928 owner after receiving a welcoming email from our Membership Chair, Richard Andrade, describing his factory visit in 2002.
Since I am around 10 years-old, I always dreamed of Porsches; especially 911's; their so highly-defined engineering and their wonderful lines kept my goals and dreams focused on this (like many little boys !!).
A year or two after, my attention came to the 928 because a Gentleman from where I am that bought a brand-new 928 1986 (like mine) since a couple years had the kindness to give me a generous ride and I never forgot it !
I had the chance to have a couple Porsches since my 20's, but I have my 928 for 12 years now and it is by far my favorite one.
Since last year; I found the right mechanic to make a total restoration and my car is having a new Life !
928 Motorsports and 928 International people help me so generously and so kindly in order me to have my car perfectly restored, this is wonderful !
My original V8 is sitting in a box in a shelf of my garage, for the future and now a brand-new GM 350 HO (item # 19210009) is sitting in the engine bay. This is an unusual feature that is not keeping the vehicle in the same Spirit, I agree; but it will be very pleasant to explore next Summer ! :)
Reading your text on the pdf document about your trip to Germany you generously gave me simply made me really happy to exchange with somebody as passionate as me about these wonderful rolling machines; this is why I take the time to send you this email.
Thank you once again for everything Sir and wishing to have the pleasure to meet someday :) I am planning a trip to California with my car; we never know !

We thank Mr. Chuck Zachman for giving us the opportunity to take ownership of the 928 Registry and re-open it. He had dedicated many hours to the collection and organizing of a incredible amount of invaluable information, and shared it with the 928 community for years. We have worked hard to bring the concepts of the site up-to-date and to create a tool that will continue to be useful to the 928 community for years to come. We welcome you to the new site, and hope that you will help us build on the content. Please register yourself, and your car with the 928 Registry, it's free!
And please explore the Registry. It is sorted by YEAR, then by MARKET (US, meaning US and Canada), and 'Row' or 'Rest of World' then MODEL (S, S4, GTS, etc) and finally by PRODUCTION NUMBER. The Production Number is NOT the last four digits of the VIN; rather it is the sequential number of production for that particular 'series' of car.
The 928 Owners Club is a Volunteer Organization. That means that everyone involved in its operation, from President through the Board, and on to Committee Chairs and Members are volunteers. If you're not a member, please Join and you too can be a volunteer for the Club.
We're working on making it easy members to volunteer, and the Committee Chairs to find you and find a place for you to help make the OC better and better for its members. This includes:
- A checklist in the new member form that lists areas where new members may have volunteer interests.
- A table, under 'OC Info' that lists the OC Board and Committee Chairs
- A checklist under each existing members' Profile that lists areas of volunteer interest.
- A table (soon) that will list the members' expressing interest in each area so that Committee Chairs can contact you.
