During the recently concluded Milan Design Week, Nardone Automotive unveiled the new Porsche 928 Restomod, Nardone Automotive 928, a contemporary take on the classic 928. Since its debut in 1978, it has always been an unconventional car being completely different from all the others: there was no similar model in the Porsche range before and, after winning the Car of the Year title, it remained part of their model range for 17 years, selling a total of over 60,000 units. The new model by Nardone Automotive transformed it into a special and tailor-made GT inside out.
Powered by a V8, it has received a modern powertrain and design tweaks inside and out. The bodywork, with muscular fenders, is made almost entirely of composite materials. The front and rear lights have been specifically designed and built, and the new, forged 18-inch wheels equipped with Michelin Pilot Sport 5 tyres are a modern interpretation of the old ‘manhole’ 16” wheel.
From a technical point of view, the 928 from Nardone Automotive relies on the classic eight-cylinder V-aspirated engine targeted to output 400bhp.
The interior has been completely revised with Foglizzo leather and Alcantara. The infotainment now incorporates the Porsche Classic Management system combined with a luxury Hi-Fi system and Apple CarPlay. What’s more? The chassis setup utilises redesigned front and rear axle and spindle, active-controlled electronic suspension, increased brakes and adaptive electric power steering.
After Milan Design Week, Nardone Automotive’s 928 will once again be in the spotlight at one of the most anticipated automotive events of the year, the Goodwood Festival of Speed, from 23 to 26 June, in England.
The first deliveries of the Nardone Automotive 928 are expected in 2024.
