The 928 are usually not classic cars that attract large sums at auction, but this luxury model is one of the exceptions, it is the 1979 Porsche 928 used by Tom Cruise during the film "Risky Business", directed in the 80s by Paul Brickman.



Three cars were used in the footage, but most of the footage was shot with a 1979-specific Porsche 928.



This Porsche 928 was unveiled at Barrett-Jackson's inaugural auction in Houston, Texas, United States, and was worth €1.7 million, making it the most expensive 928 ever sold at auction.



It may seem like an excessive price for a 928, which is a basic 79 model, but this is not only one of the three cars used during filming in the chase scenes, but also the car that Tom Cruise learned to drive with a manual gearbox. This took this 928 to years of museum visits and an unrivaled provenance that made it the most famous Porsche 928 in the world.
