This gorgeous blue-skinned shark belongs to Muscle aficionado and personality behind House of Muscle on YouTube, Mr. Mike Musto. Both the car and its owner are about as nice as they come, and it’s quite clear that Zack Klapman and Mike have quite the rapport, being that they worked together for a number of years. When Mike was in Los Angeles with the car, he and Zack went for a drive on video. Their conversation flows like old friends, and the car enjoys being thrashed through the canyon roads. Watch and listen, and you might learn a thing or two about what is perhaps Porsche’s most maligned car.
I have personally driven this 928 with Mike before, and it is as cherry as it looks on camera. Mike bought the car as a clean candidate and had every inch of the mechanicals to make it exactly the car he dreamed of when he was younger in the 1980s. Being the last of the sharp-nosed 928s, it has the old look that he craved. Being a 1986 928S, it has the larger 32-valve 5-liter engine that makes the power Musto wanted.
These are quite rare with a manual transmission, and it completely transforms the 928 driving experience from a lackadaisical lope along to a high speed handshake deal between driver and car. If you can find one in good shape, I highly recommend it.
Mike, as a good Porsche owner should, uses is 928 regularly for high-speed highway runs between San Francisco and Los Angeles. He says it will cruise all day long at speeds exceeding the limit, and that’s just how he likes it.
