1994 Porsche 928GTS

Has it really come to this? It has been a little while since I’ve taken serious notice of the 928 market, but I still would not have expected to see these sorts of prices. Granted these remain fantastic Grand Tourers and with the ’94 and ’95 model years you’re getting the most advanced version Porsche produced, and the last true GT Porsche has produced. The styling is timeless and only showed a gradual evolution over the model’s nearly two decades of existence culminating in the graceful curves of the GTS we see here. They’re beautiful and wonderful performers and the market appears to have really taken notice. This Grand Prix White 1994 Porsche 928GTS, located in Missouri, sits with only 16,129 miles on it and is said to be the only white GTS produced with a Tan interior. I can’t verify the veracity of that claim, but we do come across a Tan interior pretty rarely with these so even if there is more than one the overall numbers are sure to be low.

Even with a BIN price of nearly $115K this isn’t the highest priced 928GTS we’ve come across, even when we factor in the automatic transmission. We should note that both of these very high priced auto GTS’s have been for sale from the same dealer so that in itself may make us wonder whether the market is truly prepared to reach this high. Willhoit is well regarded and their cars tend to be top notch with prices to match. This one appears to be no different and if the rarity of the color combination can be verified then it may just be a matter of a buyer coming along who is in pursuit of that combination and then we may see this sell. Would it sell for $115K? I’m not sure about that, but the price will certainly be high. I can only wonder what a 5-speed is going for these days!

  1. It’s a slushbox.

  2. Yes, that’s fairly obvious.

  3. Anyone have number of how many came equipped with three pedals? At this price point it may be worthwhile to do a tranny swap

  4. At one point, I had heard a number that close to 80% of US spec 928s were automatics. Perhaps someone can confirm that who knows for sure.

    That rarity alone can explain the ~25% premium for manual cars over automatics.

    That being said, and there is obviously great debate within the 928 community, there is a reason so many were automatics. Try driving both transmission types before coming to your own conclusion.

    My 928 is an automatic. My prior 928 was an automatic. I shift(ed) them manually (the t-shifter makes this easy to do) and found that in character with the car. The manual tranny is balky and not what I would describe as satisfying to shift. When I have the urge to truly row my own gears, I go with other options.

    Tranny swaps are possible but for this car, I think you would hurt its value.

  5. One big auction result drove these asks. #wishfulthinking

  6. No, it wasn’t one big auction result. Premium 928 GTS’s have been selling for over six figures for years now… in fact, they were selling for such amounts a few years ahead of 993 TT’s. Also, there’s a reason why most 928’s were fitted with auto’s, and that’s because the manual was (subjectively) the inferior transmission.

  7. You can’t use Wilhoit as a barometer for pricing.
    They’re prices are outrages.

  8. @Eurotrash, believed to be only 44 1994 GTS 5-speeds sent to the US.

  9. Agree re: their prices – they are stratospheric. Not sure what their sell-through is….I see a lot of cars sit there for a long time.

  10. Agreed, Willhoit’s inventory doesn’t turn over much. In a supposedly hot market for Porsches there are only two logical reasons for this: price and condition. And his cars do seem to be very nice.

  11. @TJsBeer
    Only 44 with balky shifters eh.

    A bit off topic but if or when Singer does to the 928 what they did to the 911 these will seem like a bargain. IMHO they should as the design is still striking with one of the best rear ends in cardom.

  12. Say what you will about transmission types, pricing, and Willhoits – when 928s are posted here, more often than not, it generates a fair amount of feedback. People really seem to have an interest in these cars.

  13. No doubt a beautiful car, but when you’re going to ask stratospheric prices for an automobile, take a little time to write a description that isn’t going to give readers fits. Presentation does actually matter.

  14. 928s, to me, are incredible time capsules from their era….cars that ruffled the feathers of Porsche traditionalists while packing enough to oomph / tech / unique styling to be a truly iconic GT. The late production models are particularly compelling in my mind. I’ve never heard of someone disappointed with ownership.

  15. Comic Sans font in the ebay listing description on a $100K car…
