In the mid-seventies, the 911 (presented in 1963) was aging, and in the eyes of the new Porsche management: it was no longer just a matter of proposing a re-edition of the classic sports car with a cantilever rear boxer engine, but of finding a new, more profitable formula. According to Porsche technicians, the best way to balance the masses was the transaxle: front-engine, rear-wheel drive, and rear-axle gearbox. Thus, for the heir of 911, project 928, the transaxle scheme was chosen without delay. Even the air-cooled boxer engine appeared archaic, better to design a new V8, more powerful and, above all, with more development margins.
