‘I’ve owned my 928 S4 for ten years now and it’s been ul­tra-re­li­able. I’ve taken it to Por­tu­gal and back for golf­ing hol­i­days for the past five years and it’s not missed a beat. I love the easy thrust and V8 roar. The fuel econ­omy isn’t great, but then this is a much nicer place to be for the Por­tu­gal trip than sit­ting on a bud­get plane! The only is­sues I’ve had are mi­nor elec­tri­cal is­sues, but noth­ing as bad as the in­ter­net would have you be­lieve. If you keep an eye out for the 14-pin con­nec­tor then you should be okay. My big­gest ex­pense was re­plac­ing the leather on the dash­board – some­one had drilled a hole in the dash and it had torn over the years. In the end I had the whole in­te­rior re­fur­bished, which cost about £2000. It’s worth join­ing a Porsche club, as there is plenty of ad­vice out there. One other sug­ges­tion is that un­less you’re re­ally af­ter a GTS, don’t be too both­ered by its ex­tra sta­tus – they don’t ride as well and that en­gine is be­spoke to that model. The S4 is plenty fast enough as it is, any­way!’
