The Porsche 928 is a grand tourer by definition and was never intended to be used for motorsports. Covering long distances at high speeds is what this vehicle feels most comfortable at. While discussing with friends which race we would enter if each had a beater 928, I came up with land speed record racing and it isn’t half as weird as it first sounds. The overall shape of the body is sleek and aerodynamic, fine-tuned in the Weissach wind tunnel. If going fast in a straight line is the goal, it doesn’t hurt to have a longer wheelbase and considerably more power. And if there is a 956C sitting next to the 928 in the imaginary workshop, why not use the rear half and convert the car to mid-engine spec in the progress? I lowered the resulting Frankenstein creation, added classic Moon discs, removed the mirrors, wipers and all other unnecessary parts that disrupt airflow. The result was sleek, but the elongated fastback looked horrible. In the true spirit of Wunibald Kamm, I created a shooting break style canopy for improved looks and aerodynamics. Stripes in the classic Martini livery colors add to the period-correct appearance and make the 928 LSR look even faster.
