Description

White Lines (Don’t Do It) is playing at full tilt from the tape player and you’re sporting a fringe Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet would be proud of. It’s 1983 and you’re driving a perfect example of 80’s pure madness and ‘look at me’ crazy excess – a Porsche 928S with what we believe is a Koenig body kit in oh so subtle banana yellow. The history of Koenig is an interesting one (incidentally they still exist, and you can still purchase their body kits). Willy König was a known German race car driver who drove Ferrari’s and met Enzo Ferrari himself. Apparently, he wasn’t entirely impressed with the performance of his first Ferrari a 365 BB and promptly set about improving it which including extending the bodywork. Whilst it was not initially to everyone’s taste the performance was undeniable and demand was there. Koenig with an ‘e’ was born and Koenig Specials became the definitive statement of wild performance and looks. Other tuning and styling houses came along to such as Strosek, Gemballa and Brabus. Collectively they epitomised the 80’s appetite for crazy excess. Koenig was known for putting his design mark on several exotic cars including Ferrari’s, Mercedes and Porsche. We believe our 928S is an example of one of these, however we have no records to confirm it. There isn’t much known about the early history of this 1983 928S. The current owner acquired the car 2 years ago with the intention of returning it to its former glory however new projects have become a greater need and he is now thinning his collection down. We understand the car spent most of its time in Japan where Koenig cars had quite a following. It is possible the conversion occurred there which was not uncommon and not an inexpensive exercise. Our car still has its original and very desirable BBS wheels with steam roller sized 345 PZero tyres. The body whilst it looks ok at distance needs work with splits in the paint and cracks in various parts of the body kit. The boot lid shows some corrosion however the rest of the car looks solid. The current owner has had some recent electrical and engine work done and a compression test shows no issues. The door cards are missing however the rest of the interior is there. The car starts easily, shows no signs of smoke, and runs and changes gear as it should. It sounds fantastic and has a great exhaust note. This is a wonderful driving project and opportunity to own a very rare car – try and find another like it!
