Is the Porsche 928 a car that only existed in the past?

It could also be argued that the spirit of the 928 lives on in the current 991-generation Porsche 911. The new 911 eschews the car’s classic smallness, litheness, and rawness in favor of the 928's comfortable, refined, luxurious approach to sportscardom. The 911's simple air-cooled charm, too, is gone in favor of the 928's water-cooled complexity.

Perhaps the 928 was never defeated. Perhaps it is the victor. Perhaps the 928 never died. Perhaps it lives on today.
