Porsche originally introduced the 928 back in 1977 as a replacement for the 911. Powered by a meaty front-mounted V8 and built as a roomy hatch with seats for four, it offered quite the juxtaposition to the sporty little air-cooled coupe it was supposed to succeed. As such, it flopped pretty hard at the time, and only really became desirable after it had ceased production.
But with so many once-dead model designations being brought back for another go, it begs the question: what if Porsche were to give the 928 a second shot? Well, hopefully, it’d look something like this stunning concept penned by Guilherme Knop and rendered by João Schendel. There’s no way around it: with the lengthy hood, imposing B pillar, and truncated tail, the car is unmistakably a 928. However, thanks to some updated styling — including more muscular wheel arches, cleaner headlights, as well as a set of sportier bumpers both front and rear — it’s been given a new lease on life. While there’s no telling what Knop has envisioned under the hood, we’d like to imagine that it’d be in line with Porsche’s next steps: electric and fast as hell. Check it out at the link below.
