The 928 was intended as the successor to the 911 but soon carved out an independent niche for itself. In 1978, just one year after its launch, it was voted “Car of the Year” – the first sports car ever to win this accolade. In technical terms the vehicle concept differed fundamentally from that of the 911 because of the transaxle transmission, watercooled V8 alloy engine and aluminium suspension.
