Petrolicious Discusses One Enthusiast’s Love for the Porsche 928

A man with a self-proclaimed “V-8 Fetish”

For the first time in a long time, it’s good to be a Porsche 928. Thanks in part to the more recent explosion in Porsche prices, the often-ignored 928 is creeping back in the limelight. On the newest episode of Petrolicious, an Icelandic enthusiast explains what makes Porsche’s V-8 bullet so special.

By day, Torfi Sigurjonsson is a commercial airline pilot. The native Icelander always wanted a 928, but never really found the right one until 2009, when he splurged on a U.K.-based 928. According to Sigurjonsson, this car was initially purchased as a white car in Japan, and repainted canary yellow before making its way to England.

Now, the 928 spends it’s time parked next to Sigurjonsson’s fabulous Mercedes-Benz 500E. In a sense, the two cars are intrinsically linked; both have Porsche-designed V-8 engines, both seat four people, and both put out around 320 horsepower when new.

He’s a busy guy, but he always makes time for his two eight-cylinder missiles. “I try to keep my life not too complicated, but I have this car fetish. V-8 fetish. You only have one life, so I try to make the most out of it,” he says.

Check out Torfi Sigurjonsson’s pair of Teutonic V-8s in the video below.
