I took a look at this Porsche 928 and below are the specifics. The seller doesn't do EMAIL or texting, so I'm assisting him by posting this information. Send me a note if you'd like more information or photos

a) Canadian car, all display are metric including trip computer and temperature. Asking price: $20,000.
b) Arizona titled car. Door sticker shows mfg date 20 December 89
c) Odometer displayed 91,259 km (converts to 56,682 miles).
d) Purchase: Porsche dealership in Vancouver, BC. Car was there for 10 years, never driven in snow. After 10 years, moved to Arizona. The car has always been garaged.
e) Paint color Schiefer (Slate Grey) Metallic 22D.
f) Interior black seats and carpeting.
g) The condition is very good, but not “enthusiast” clean. It will detail out nicely, I think. It is all original.
h) The dash has been covered (dry but not cracked), small grill on interior temp sensor is cracked. Owner has a new uninstalled replacement
for entire sensor.
i) Steering wheel covered, leather in good condition.
j) Seats are in good condition but a small blemish defect (original?) in the passenger seat outside lower bolster (see photo). Owner has always had sheep skin covers on the seats since new. Has original luggage net and luggage cover (unused). Tool kit, all tools present except for tow loop, owner thinks he has it at home.
k) Functionality check:
a. Only one key, opens doors and hatch.
b. Alarm system works.
c. AC (R12) & heating works
d. electric windows work
e. electric mirrors work
f. sunroof works
g. passenger seat: all positions except rearwards work (switch problem)
h. driver seat: all positions work
i. Interior driver side rear hatch release inoperable (opens with key)
j. Radio: aftermarket, works. Owner has original radio and amp – no wires cut for aftermarket installation
k. Trip computer stalk is loose (cycles OK through all messages)
l. Gas Cap: clip fell out, locking portion separated from cap base (have photo). I think fabricated replacement clips are available.
l) Engine: starts quickly, no lifter clatter. Smooth idle.
m) Transmission: shifts well, no clunk
n) Brakes: pedal was a bit spongy, need bleed. Owner never flushed fluid so service is due.
o) Front tires a bit age cracked but have tread, rear tires new.
p) Wheels are original, in OK condition, need buffing.
q) Warning message: brake pad. May be due to bad connections (pad indicators). Rear are original pads, fronts were replaced. Red bulbs are burned out in right section of warning message display.
r) Differential warning. May be PSD pump low on fluid or sensor/wiring.
s) Extra parts: new water pump (metal impeller), interior temperature sensor (with grill), new fuel pump
t) Rear wing was removed and screw holes capped with rubber plugs. Owner has the original rear wing.
u) Left and Right drive lights: covered with plexiglass, original glass cracked.
v) Rear brake lights: very minor cracks (have photos)
w) Road test: engine ran well, transmission shifted well, brakes applied smoothly. Hand brake functions correctly.
x) Service: performed by retired Porsche mechanic who lives in same town. I didn’t see any written records. Cam belt service was 8,000 miles prior but around 10 years. Had drive train noise so bearings in torque tube and torque converter were replaced. Transmission service was done at that time.
y) Body damage: only major issue are small dent near the passenger side mirror (have photso). Could be a candidate for paintless dent repair.

My general impression is that this is an original car and is in good condition. A complete pre-purchase inspection would require lifting the car and making a complete inspection.

I recommend a shop in Scottsdale, Arizona that can perform a pre-purchase inspection and have a quote from a them for the cost address most of the items listed.
