1993 Porsche 928 GTS

If you’re interested in how the 928 market has changed over the last few years this example might offer some useful insight. But let’s get to that later.

This is a Horizon Blue Metallic 1993 Porsche 928 GTS, located in Florida, with Blue Topaz leather interior, the automatic transmission, and 56,995 miles on it. This is a very attractive shade of light blue that shows well on the 928 and certainly stands apart from the many silver and black examples we’ve seen. The interior makes the car a little monochrome overall, but it’s a bright blue that stands out even more than the exterior. I’m not sure I’d consider this the ideal color combination, but it certainly is an interesting one. In a sea of uninteresting cars, this 928 definitely will attract notice. It also looks to be in really nice shape. And, of course, it’s a GTS!

1994 Porsche 928 GTS – 5-speed

I said previously that I’d try to pay a little more attention to the Porsche 928 so that’s what I’m trying to do. In truth I’ve featured this 928 before so technically this is a revisit. However, I wanted to shine a brighter light on it than the standard “hey look this one’s back up for sale.” It’s been nearly a year since I featured it and that’s usually long enough to revisit something in depth, but mostly this comes down to price and my own love for the color.

This is a Slate Grey Metallic 1994 Porsche 928 GTS, located in Texas, with Grey interior, 82,500 miles on it, and the 5-speed manual transmission. I know grey is supposed to be a boring color and I don’t think I’d call Slate Grey exciting, but I do love it as an exterior color. It just looks really good. There’s not much more to it than that. Regarding the price change: when I first featured this 928 it was priced at just under $130K. Manual or not that’s a lot of money, especially for a 928 with almost 90K miles on it. The price now has been slashed substantially to a much more reasonable $82,500. I think we can work with that.

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 928GTS

It feels like it has been forever since I featured a 928 of any year, let alone a GTS, the last of these great Porsche grand tourers. As I come back to one now I am immediately struck by how good these cars still look. They are truly a timeless design that was well ahead of the game when they debuted. The interior pretty clearly dates these cars to the ’90s, but from the outside only the pop-up headlights really hint at the 928’s age. That design, along with quite a few other superb qualities, haven’t gone unnoticed as the GTS has become pretty highly sought after among Porsche enthusiasts, especially in the rare case of finding one with a manual transmission. This one happens to be an automatic, but there’s still plenty to love here and that automatic should come at a substantial discount over a comparable manual-equipped GTS. Here we have a Polar Silver Metallic 1993 Porsche 928 GTS, located in New Jersey, with Black interior and 34,595 miles on it on offer with no reserve.

1993 Porsche 928 GTS Coupe

It has been nearly 40 years since Porsche first brought the 928 into the world and almost 20 years since the last one rolled off the line. It began life with a 4.5 liter V8 producing 219 hp and saw gradual increases in displacement and power before finally reaching the 5.4 liter 345 hp producing V8 of the 928 GTS. Cosmetically, the 928 saw a similar level of gradual evolution retaining the same basic design and appearance, but in a more refined package. From inception to final production these were what a proper GT should be: a car combining luxury and comfort with performance that was effortless yet unstrained. The example we have featured here is a paint-to-sample Silver 1993 Porsche 928 GTS Coupe with 5-speed manual transmission, located in California. This particular 928 also holds a place in Porsche media history, which should provide its owner with a nice bit of trivia.

Supercharged 1993 Porsche 928 GTS – No Reserve

Here’s something we don’t come across every day: a 1993 Porsche 928 GTS with a Vortech supercharger capable of producing 600+ hp. Tuned Porsches are not uncommon, nor is it uncommon to come across base model cars that have been modded to mimic their much more powerful production rivals. In almost every case, however, those cars possess an equal amount of ‘show’ to go along with their ‘go’. Some of the tuner cars are downright wild! This 928 GTS, on the other hand, is almost boring. From the outside, it looks like any other stock Grand Prix White 928 with a stout 345 hp coming from its 5.4 liter V8. Open the hood and the potential of this car is revealed. With a supercharged built motor, the seller claims 450+ hp at a fairly easy going 5.5 psi and over 600 hp if we crank it up to 11. It’s difficult for any Porsche to truly qualify as a sleeper but if there ever was one, then a car like this would probably be it.

It goes without saying that a car such as this one will not suit everyone. But I’ll give the seller credit, it’s ballsy to put a car like this up for auction with no reserve. There has been a ton of bidding action so far but the price remains fairly reasonable at $25,001. That’s actually a substantial discount relative to the price at which a 928 GTS would typically sell, which frankly isn’t too surprising. Regardless, have the car checked out, talk to the seller, and if everything appears in good order, you’d have a car that could surprise quite a few people out on the roads!

1994 Porsche 928 GTS

While Porsche’s front-engined cars rarely receive attention equal to that of their rear-engined counterparts, we are still quite fond of them here at GCFSB. And that fondness grows considerably when we come across examples fitted with a manual transmission. A GT car certainly doesn’t require a manual gearbox, but our enjoyment of most any car is enhanced by its presence. Such is the case with the car featured here: a Black 1994 Porsche 928 GTS that has seen only around 37,000 miles. Coming from one of the final years of this GT car’s production, the 928 GTS featured a 5.4 liter V8 directing 345 hp to the rear wheels. With timeless styling and the performance/luxury combination only to be found in a good Grand tourer, these were a fantastic alternative to the more hard-edged 911 and for a time were the presumed future of the Porsche marque.

I was slightly torn about whether to feature this car because of the price and auction set-up. This seller is clearly hoping to extract every possible dollar from this sale, and while we certainly can’t fault any seller for that desire, setting the starting bid a mere $10,000 below a very high Buy It Now price really doesn’t provide for any great likelihood that this car will receive the attention it deserves. From all appearances this car looks excellent and if it comes with a complete service history then any buyer is surely going to end up with a great car. But I’m not sure this car would sell for $60,000 in an open auction, let alone the $82,900 that is being asked for here. I would be happy to be wrong about that because the 928 remains an underappreciated car, so I’ll have my eye on this one nonetheless.

V8 Week Preview: 1994 Porsche 928 GTS

Porsche’s foray into the GT car market was supposed to be the move that insured the long term success and viability of the marque. Surely their quirky rear-engined sports car had reached its potential and buyers would prefer the combination of performance and comfort that only a well designed front-engined GT could provide, right? Such was the basic process behind the introduction of the 928. First introduced in 1977, the 928 had a 4.5 liter V8 delivering 219 hp to the rear wheels. By the end of its life-cycle in 1995, engine output had increased to 345 hp from a 5.4 liter V8, but much of the rest of the car, especially its appearance, remained the same. In the end, Porsche had underestimated the long-term viability and potential success of the 911 and it’s now been nearly two decades since the last of these GT cars rolled off the line.

The car we have here today comes from near the very end of the model’s production run: a 1994 Porsche 928 GTS with manual transmission located in Indianapolis.

There’s a ton to like about this car. It appears spotless both inside and out, it has the highly desirable 5 speed manual, the mileage is reasonable, and it comes with a complete service history. It’s fitting that Porsche designated this color as Polar Silver because matched with the blue leather interior there’s definitely a icy quality to the overall appearance of this car. It’s a pretty great combination and a nice departure from the more standard blacks and browns, but without being overly flashy. It’s a GT car, understated excellence is what we want. Bidding has been aggressive so far with nearly 40 bids received and a price currently at $34,100 with the reserve still on. I expect that will come up a little bit, but it’ll be interesting to see if it can meet the reserve. Either way, this looks like an excellent example of the car that Porsche assumed would be its savior.

1993 Porsche 928 GTS

driversrear

A few weeks ago I featured a beautiful 1981 928 Strosek  that looked very similar to this 928, however it had a wild mid-80’s body kit and was a very in-your-face version of the 928. For those that are looking to stand out in a more subtle manner, there’s this 1993 928 GTS. Upon first inspection you’d say “it looks just like any other 928”, and you’d be right. However, once you open the drivers door, you’ll see why you’d be the only kid at the Porsche meets with a car like this.

Set aside the relative rarity of a 1993 928 GTS, even set aside the rarity of the manual gearbox, this car takes it to a whole other level with its color combination, that is likely 1 of 1. Sure we can talk numbers on this car all day, front engine V8 with 345 bhp, 0-60 mph in a tick under 6 seconds, but the real beauty of the GT car is the look.

Rare 1993 5 Speed Manual
Only 1 of 2 Built in Horizon Blue Metallic
Only 1 Ever Built w/ Sport Seats and Factory Installed Bilstein Shocks
Low miles – 72,574

All of this in what many consider one of the classiest colors a 928 was ever clothed in. Combine the Horizon Blue Metallic Exterior with the Rich Blue Interior and the Color Combination is Stunning. The photos say it all (*1). I’ve included several pics from different surroundings to highlight the car’s natural beauty.

This is one of two ’93 GTS I currently own. Both are for sale as we are moving overseas. The other car is supercharged, an automatic transmission with regular seats. It is set up for the track and is scary fast. Guess which one I drive. Put simply, a GTS with Sport Seats combined with the 5 Speed Manual transmission is the pinnacle of 928s. This car is more fun to drive than any car I have ever driven. No matter how bad a day, this car always brings a smile to my face. The Sport Seats are incredibly comfortable and no matter how aggressive the drive, you never feel like you’re sliding about in the driver’s seat.

I am the 3rd owner of the car and I purchased it in December of 2006 (*2) when the car had 43,050 miles on it. With the exception of RMB, high flow cats and after market radio the car is 100% stock. Returning the car to stock, with the exception of the radio, is negotiable. Both belly pans are still in place. The volume control on the radio works but not like new. The stereo sounds great and operates as it should otherwise. All mechanical, electrical, controls, guages (including the tire pressure monitors) and instrument panels work correctly.

The exterior of this car scores about 9.5. The paint is original and in excellent condition. The only faults preventing it from being a 10 include the inevitable rock chips in the nose and one very small ding in the passenger door that could easily be worked out by a ding and paint man. The ding did not damage the paint but at the right angle (or wrong!) the 1/4″ – 1/2″ ding is visible from about 6′ away. There is about 1/4″ rock chip in front of the sunroof and 3 very faint scratches that cannot be seen except from a couple of feet away. One scratch is on the front left wheel well and 2 are together on the hood near the windshield. All of these are very faint and cannot be seen except upon very close inspection. There is about a 1/4″ mar in the finish on the wing which was there when I bought the car. It looks like a blister in the clear coat and does not go thru the paint.

The interior probably scores about a 9. There is one 1″ scuff on one of the rear seats. Aside from stress lines in the leather there are no tears, cracks or flaws on the rest of the interior including the pod. The dye is wearing thin in a few areas that can be seen in the pictures of the car. Primarily in the drivers seat bolster, the leather cover on the stick and the brake release. The vinyl in the car is in excellent condition and the carpet is in good condition. All tools including the air compressor are in place.

The original wheels are in excellent condition. The tires are Dunlop Direzza with 255/40/R17 in back and 235/45/R17s in front. The tires have 12,600 miles on them and have plenty of tread. In August, 2011 when the car had 70,994 miles the timing belt, water pump, oil cooler and oil sending unit were replaced. At the same time the a/c compressor, expansion valve, receiver/dryer and heater valve were replaced. Many records prior to my ownership and all records since I bought the car are available. All of the maintenance was performed by a local shop and all parts were obtained thru 928sRus. This car was the dream car of my youth and since buying it there has never been any deferred maintenance. It has been kept in excellent operating condition as it was when I acquired the car.
Please let me know if you have any questions and good luck bidding. This is one you don’t want to get away!

Note: The other GTS I mentioned will be listed in a few days. Both of these cars are listed locally and if sold locally will be removed from bidding on eBay.

*1 – The exterior finish and interior pics of the leather seats are accurate. For some reason, the camera makes the carpet look like they have a hint of purple. This is definitely not the case. When I first looked at pictures of the car in December of ’06 the interior pics initially threw me as I DID NOT want a purple interior. When I saw the car in person I was delighted with the actual colors. Everyone who has seen the car in person raves over the interior/exterior color combination.

*2 – The New Jersey Motor Vehicle Department  incorrectly showed the mileage as being 73,346 when the previous owner  moved to New Jersey in March of 2004. See below for notarized statement  from previous owner stating the correct miles along with service  documents before and after the move proving the correct mileage.

interior2

The 928 has always been a favorite of mine and so have wild color combinations, so as far as I’m concerned, this is the pinnacle of the 928 GTS. While this is a great, rare color combination for the GTS, I’m not 100% convinced that justifies the asking price. These cars are valued at around $42,000 as clean show/driver condition and on this car I’m just not seeing it. Given the condition and with bonus points for rarity, this car should be in the $38,000 to $39,000 ballpark. However, if someone must have it, $4,000 isn’t a bad premium to pay for such a nice car.

1993 Porsche 928 GTS 5-speed

As the ultimate expression of the Porsche 928, the GTS has always garnered its fair share of admirers, myself being one of them. These particular 928s still command strong values, with some lower mileage examples known to have fetched over $40,000 in some cases. This particular GTS caught my eye as it is the more desirable 5 speed manual and is priced in the mid $20,000 range. The car is closing in on 100,000 miles, but someone has obviously taken good care of this vehicle over its lifetime, looking at the close-up photography. This GTS would look more sporting in a shade or red or black, but the Amazon Green over gray leather is subtle and lends an air of class to this car.

I have always wanted a 928 since I was a kid in the early 1980s and got the chance to sit in the drivers seat of the 928 my doctor was driving at the time. The styling has aged really well on these cars and while the asking price isn’t unreasonable, if someone could grab this car for around the $22,000 to $23,000 range, it would be rather well bought. This car reminds me of Porsche in its heyday, when the earth was free of bloated Cayennes and Panameras that were styled by people with no sense of proportions.
