1993 Porsche 928 GTS with 5-speed Manual

Gosh it feels like forever since I featured a 928. I think I actually started off my last 928 post in the same way. Perhaps I should feature them more often. I really do like these cars. The look is beautiful and timeless and it’s hard to believe it’s been almost 25 years since the last one was produced. Even more hard to believe is how good the original design – with almost 40 years on it! – still looks today. But this isn’t about an early 928, but rather one from near the end of their production.

Porsche’s top-of-the-line front-engine GT was with us for 17 years and over that time followed the typical Porsche path of subtle evolutionary changes to its design and mechanical layout. Always a V8, displacement would gradually be increased from 4.5 liters to 5.4 liters with associated increases in power as well. In its final GTS form that meant 350 hp with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. The automatic was popular and for some actually more desirable, but the manual-equipped cars command the most money. The last one I featured was pretty low mileage and came with a very high price tag; relatively speaking this one is neither of those things.

Here we have a Black 1993 Porsche 928 GTS, located in Georgia, with Cashmere interior, the 5-speed manual transmission, and 69,673 miles on it.

1993 Porsche 928 GTS.

Vin WP0AA2921PS820118.

69,673 Miles.

5-Speed Manual.

Black.

Cashmere Leather Interior.

Clean Carfax.

Owner’s Manual and Maintenance Book.

Only 190 imported to the United States!

Only 54 of them came with a manual transmission!

This sleek looking GTS represents the “creme de la creme” of the 928 era, and due to the very low production numbers, these cars are very desirable.

This particular “shark” is in a great condition. The paint is very glossy and all seals and gaskets have been properly maintained and conditioned.

The interior looks great as well, and the cashmere leather seats still retain their fresh look. All the instruments are fully operational and the AC blows cold.

Performance wise, this 928 is spot on. The 60K mile service has been performed by Motor Werks Porsche in Barrington, IL. The engine is tight and the manual transmission is smooth and correct.

While black and tan certainly are not exciting colors, they do make for a nice departure from the many silver over grey 928s I come across. It’s a classic light and dark combination and here most everything looks in good order. The black exterior shows well with nice depth to it and looks pretty much blemish free. The interior presents similarly with only minor apparent wear to the seats and the rest clean and correct, other than an aftermarket radio. While just under 70K miles isn’t a lot for its age it is certainly enough to show plenty of wear if this 928 were not cared for correctly. We don’t hear too much regarding maintenance other than a 60K mile service so some questions will be needed in that regard.

Given that low-mileage manual ’94 GTS’s are now being priced about $100K, the $70K price tag here doesn’t seem all that bad. You’ll certainly want a PPI to insure it’s in proper running condition, but if everything checks out this seems like a fairly attractive price for a GTS that won’t be hurt by additional mileage and that gives you the satisfaction of choosing the gears yourself. It’s definitely time I paid more attention to these great Porsches.

  1. I appreciate these more with age, the car and myself. I wonder what these are like to live with, seams like a gentlemans hotrod for sure.

  2. I was an American muscle car guy when I was a teenager. Liked Porsches, Ferraris, Lambos, etc. well enough buy my heart was in American V8s. Had an ’85 Trans Am (in 1985) with the TPI engine. It was quick, fun and I thought it was all that. Then I drove my brother-in-law’s 1978 928 5 speed. 7 years older than my car and it made my car feel jurassic the second I let the clutch out. It was so balanced, well made, fun to drive and felt like a scalpel compared to my Trans Am’s mallet-like demeanor. I have been a 928 fan ever since. Driven quite a few since that first drive and even owned a 944 and a 968 but never a 928. It will remain a bucket list car for the rest of my life. This one looks magnificent.

    As the owner of a 1993 GTS 5-speed in polar silver with grey leather I want to take my ball and go home.

    This one looks nice but incorrect intake tubes. Why is the carpet on very rear shelf above tool kit a different color? What exactly was done for 60K service? Timing belt and waterpump? Did they use the correct parts or is was a metal blade pump and cheap belt used? These cars are awesome even well respected Porsche independent shops often do not know enough about how they should be serviced. Mine came with $2700 in service just performed and when 928 specialists Precision Motorwerks looked it over it all had to be redone.

  4. @Bill – Precision Motorwerks – is that Will DiJiovani (sp?)’s shop?

  5. @Carter

    No Precision Motorwerks is in Anahiem and run by Greg Brown. One of the best 928 shops in the US, and Greg is a great guy.

    3 of us shipped our 928’s to a friend in Greensboro NC in preparation for a cross country driving trip home to CA. During transport one of the cars had an distributor / ignition problem. Greg was nice enough to talk our friend through diagnosing the problem, then overnighted him a number of parts that could be at fault and talked him through the final repair. Obviously I can’t say enough good things about the guy or the work his shop turns out.

  6. @Bill, great story and recommendation. There’s another Precision on the East Coast run by Will; he’s quite the 944 specialist, but I wondered if he had 928 expertise as well. Thanks for the reply!
