the 928 came with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection- if you are looking for a simple idle screw- sorry- there isn't anything simple on that car- you will need to find a good mechanic- sooner or later- owning a 140 mph car will take an expert to keep it going- and safe-

I've seen it done, there is a small circular cap on the throttle body that is pried off, and using a special tool to access the adjustment screw for the idle.
