1991 Porsche 928GT

It’s been a while since my last GCFSB article, but I figure that this beautiful 1991 Porsche 928 GT is worthy of a writeup, so here goes. As we all know, mint Porsche 928’s, especially GTS’s, have been in demand for a while now. In fact, pristine 928 GTS’s were fetching 6 figures a few years before mediocre 993 TT’s rose beyond that proverbial barrier. Though slightly less desirable than the later GTS’s, 928 GT’s have fetched respectable figures at auctions. I can recall two selling for greater than $50K at Mecum auctions. The car featured here is listed at the top of the 928 GT market, and it will be interesting to see if it goes quickly at the asking price.

Year: 1991
Model: 928GT
Engine: 5.0 liter V8
Transmission: 5-speed manual
Mileage: 29,175 mi
Price: $60,000

This particular car stood out to me because of its distinctive, two-toned Lipstick Red/black interior with white piping on the seats. According to the 928 Registry, this is the only 1991 GT specced in this color combo. A total of three 928 GT’s sport the Grand Prix White/Matador Red color combination; one manufactured in each model year of 1989, 1990, and 1991. In addition to the low mileage, unique color combination, and the somewhat lofty price, this car’s physical condition separates it from the majority of 928 GT’s. There are few noticeable flaws, most of which are easily correctable.

Finding a 928 with under 30,000 miles has become extremely difficult, and collectors obviously want the few such examples that remain. As you may be aware, an extensively modified 1995 928 GTS was sold by Bonhams at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance for $132,000. Given that fact, I do not think that $60,000 is unreasonable for a very low mileage and very unique 928 GT.

  1. That interior is sexy!

  2. LOVE the old Porsche 928s. This GT looks especially beautiful. Wish I had a spare $60,000!!!

  3. This interior color is most likely “matador red” – a very rare special order leather with a “marbelized” look. They had similar marbelized leathers in grey and green, called “carrara grey” (not carrera!) and “sherwood green”.

  4. This looks to be a very nice 928. The only flaw I see is the warpage along the center console & dash. Andy, would you define that as easily correctable?

  5. @pmichaelg – Good eye! I noticed that upon my first inspection of the car, but didn’t take note of it and forgot to include it in the article. No, that would not be easily correctable. If I were interested in purchasing this car, I’d ask for pictures of the instrument binnacle to make sure there were no cracks (usually the first area to receive sun damage on the interior of a 928).

    IchDochNicht – You are correct, the interior is indeed Matador Red. I got my information on the color combo from the 928 Registry, which mentions the interior is Lipstick Red. I should’ve noticed the disparity, as Matador Red is slightly darker. The window sticker (featured in the ad) specifies that the interior is Matador Red.

  6. Here is almost the same mileage, not a GT and an automatic transmission for half the price.

  7. Similar mileage, not a GT with an auto but half the price.
