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.

Paul actually posted this car nearly four years ago when it was for sale by Willhoit Enterprises. The mileage hardly has changed over those four years and it even seems to be wearing its Willhoit license tag. You can see it behind the bag of chips in a couple of the pictures. Not much appears to have changed with its condition either as it still looks pretty good. I’m sure we’d all appreciate some better pictures to really get a sense of its condition, but what we see looks good. For a sense of how Wimbledon Green can really shine check out the pictures in that previous listing.
Those interested in the way the market for a 928GTS has changed during that time will notice the steep price difference between the two ads. Willhoit hardly would be considered a place to get a Porsche at a discount. Their prices always are high and the cars typically very good. Yet, the almost $70K price tag for this 928GTS in 2014 is much lower than the $120K starting bid of this auction. Oh, and that’s before we even get to the reserve. We’ve seen a lot of high prices for the GTS over the last year, especially for one of the very rare machines equipped with a 5-speed manual. Obviously, this one is even more rare. Has it doubled in value over the past four years? We’ll have to watch and find out.
