I am sure a 928 would tow just fine with something like one of these. You'd have plenty of power. Like you said, if a VW Jetta can be set up to tow a trailer, a Porsche V8 should do it just fine. I have a buddy in Seattle that used to have a 928. He really liked it; called it his "German Corette". Parts were pretty high for it was the only negative. He wound up trading it on an M3.
I know both Youngbloods and Whisners. I'll have to PM you on some of them. Small world!
Actually it was Hubby Tom posting under Jana's nom de plume!
... and my matrilineal side of the family there in BS.
I know that the TrailerToad & another one casters with a locking hub device, but not sure about the Hitch Helper & haven't heard back from them to answer questions yet.
Those all use a 2" square tube insert into the hitch receiver, so even if they don't pivot/caster, they are still fixed to the TV & can be backed up.
The thing I like about those - over the WD hitch route - is htat there is a definitie 1-2 wheels to the ground to carry the tongue wt. - rather than relying on torsion bars to push the wt. around between the TV & TT/CT/VT.
If these units work out for the tongue wt. reduction, then the next question is whether Jana will like a 928 & driving it!
