The History And Mystery Of The Porsche 928 Test Mule That's Inside Out

Now retired from service, Porsche engineers relied on this odd creation for a very specific purpose

Forget slick lines and a powerful engine. This is unlike any other Porsche 928 that you’ve seen before. This silver example cobbled together from mismatched components and resembling something out of a Mad Max film, is actually a Porsche legend. What you’re looking at is the world’s quietest 928, and its story is both odd and interesting. For over three decades years, this unique-looking Porsche fulfilled a single purpose: to silence its peers. Commissioned in 1989, it has cruised the Weissach test track, stuffed with insulation, and helped Porsche engineers in developing quieter tires owing to more stringent noise rules and regulations that came into force back in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s.
