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!

1978 Porsche 928

We talk a lot about period specific and period correct cars around here and this 1978 Porsche 928 seems to fit that bill just about as much as possible. While I’ve said frequently that I think the 928 design still looks great today, we wouldn’t confuse one with a modern car. It has pop-up headlights and is a bit more pointy than it is round, neither of which we see much on today’s designs. But really it is the colors of this one that plant it firmly in the ’70s. The exterior is said to be Apple Green Metallic and the interior is Brown with pasha seat inserts. I’m not at all familiar with Apple Green Metallic on a Porsche so I’m not sure if this is its original color or not, but the interior is one that we’ve seen before from this period. It’s wild and the contrast with the metallic green exterior certainly is pronounced. I cannot imagine any manufacturer would offer such a combination today, nor am I sure anyone would buy it, but it certainly makes for an interesting looking 928!

1987 Porsche 928S4

Last week I posted a 928S as a potential roll of the dice project. Like a lot of high-end cars, the 928 doesn’t always make for the best roll of the dice given how complicated they can be to work on and the cost to get everything back in proper order. But the color combination and general cosmetic condition really made me want to love it and for some it might be unique enough to take the risk.

This 928 seems a lot more secure and while we can never fully trust a seller without verifying that everything is as it should be, the level of detail here looks such that further investigation should be worthwhile. This is a Guards Red 1987 Porsche 928S4, located in Pennsylvania, with automatic transmission and 72,996 miles on it. The price certainly is higher than last week’s project, but you could easily invest more in that project without returning it to this 928’s apparent condition.

Roll the Dice: 1985 Porsche 928S

We’ve been running with the “Roll the Dice” posts for a little while now, but this will be the first time I have taken a foray into that segment. While all of the marques featured in such posts pose inherent financial risk, Porsche may represent the riskiest of all since the price of entry is in many cases already rather high. This is especially the case with my most favored car, the 911. But I really want to like this car and given its current state, a roll of the dice may be just want you’re looking at.

This is a 1985 Porsche 928S in the very rare combination of Prussian Blue Metallic over a Can-can Red interior. It’s a very striking combination and one that I absolutely love. Prussian Blue makes for a very pretty exterior color, but without being flashy. Can-can Red is…well it’s all flash. The juxtaposition of the two colors works great and you’re certain to attract plenty of attention. It’s also not something we see on the 928 too often. And that’s why I like this 928 quite a bit. It helps that both the exterior and interior look in nice shape. It’s mechanical condition…that’s where the roll of the dice comes in because the seller seems to have a decent sense of what the problems are, but not necessarily the cause of those problems.

Wimbledon Green Metallic 1993 Porsche 928GTS

Editor’s Note: While I have not changed the pictures from those of the originally posting, this 928 has been relisted with much better pictures. Check out the new eBay ad to see them.

You can’t really tell it from the pictures, but this actually is a pretty brightly colored 928. We don’t see very many bright colors on the 928 and if the seller of this one is correct in his statement that this is 1 of 2 in this color – with the other one housed in the Porsche factory – then you aren’t likely to see another one any time soon. Either for sale or on the roads.

This is a paint-to-sample Wimbledon Green Metallic 1993 Porsche 928GTS, located in New Jersey, with a 5-speed manual transmission. In case the exterior color and the 5-speed haven’t made it exclusive enough the interior is leather-to-sample Midnight Green with Red piping. I’m not sure these combinations are quite what I’d go for and in that sense perhaps we can understand its rarity, but for those searching for the rarest of the 928s this one must rank right up there.

1987 Porsche 928S4

Truth be told this wasn’t the 928 I originally intended to post. It was going to be this 928 GTS 5-speed also for sale at Parkhaus. Those obviously are highly sought after cars. But as I continued looking about I then came across this very similar looking 1987 Porsche 928S4 and the price difference simply became too much for me to continue with the GTS. The GTS certainly is quite nice, but for 100 grand less you could have this one. That’s a lot of money saved!

Feature Listing: 1978 Porsche 928

Is it possible that the early 928 is an even more futuristic looking car than the later models? Typically we’d probably consider the inverse where a model evolves and advances as it gets older. The 928 surely did advance and its evolution is clear, but I still think the earlier models look farther ahead than the later models. Some of that surely is down to their look relative to other options available at the time, but I think there’s more to it than that. Their spaceshippyness (that’s definitely not a real word) seems more pronounced. The round-in-the-back and pointy-in-the-front design is more apparent. The interior…well as soon as we take a look inside this one I think that part becomes obvious. It all seems like it’s looking farther into the future and then with its evolution Porsche dialed it back some and smoothed all of the rough edges.

This forward looking design is a testament to Porsche’s ideas and it really makes me wish the model had continued to live on so that we could see where it might have gone next. The Panamera isn’t it.

These were my thoughts as I looked over this 928. It comes from early in the model’s production so it showcases those early design cues and its black-white pascha interior is something few marques would ever consider utilizing outside of the ’70s. This is very much a period-correct 928 and its restoration looks top notch.

1983 Porsche 928 S

I focus a lot on the final model in the 928 line, the GTS. For good reason: as the final evolution of the model’s 17 year run the GTS is a very attractive car that brings with it the highest levels of performance and refinement that we covet so dearly in any GT.

However, they also can be very expensive. So for the Grand Tourer on a budget we need simply to turn the clock back a little and look at one of the early 928s. From there prices become much more reasonable. Which brings us to this: a Black 1983 Porsche 928 S, located in Missouri, with an interesting Berber cloth/tan leather interior and 76,161 miles on it. 1983 was the first year of the S for the US market and along with some minor aesthetic evolution it brought with it an increase in displacement from the original 4.5 liter V8 to a 4.7 liter V8. Naturally power was up slightly as well to 234 hp. This one also is equipped with a 5-speed manual.

Rosewood Metallic 1982 Porsche 928

The 928 still manages to amaze me. Let’s not be confused, this 1982 Porsche 928 is an old car. But it doesn’t really look old. Or at least not in the way most cars from the ’80s look old. The design clearly was ahead of its time – a point driven home by how similar the design remained over the 928’s 17 years of production – and even today the older versions still look good. It is in the interior where things most quickly begin to date themselves, but on the outside the 928’s curves still look fresh. We certainly won’t confuse it for a current production model, but as I said when we compare it to the various cars of its day it just doesn’t quite show its age to the same degree.

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.
