It’s pretty amazing to consider that the Porsche 928 was intended to replace the 911 considering the lengths to which Porsche went to keep the 911 alive during the former’s production. The 928 was rolled out alongside the revised 911SC in 1978 and remained in production as the 911 became the Carrera, then the 964, and finally, the 993. Of course, the 928 wasn’t without changes – the S, S4, GT, and finally what we see here – the GTS – kept the model fresh and one of the most potent on the market. The styling was tweaked along the way, but the vision remained – a big V8 in front, a transaxle out back, and space-age looks in between.
Today’s car is a European version of the GTS, replete with a 5-speed manual gearbox. While it’s not the most exotic color combination in Slate Grey over black leather, the allure of the ultimate 928 is pretty strong – as is the asking price.

1993 Porsche 928 GTS
Rare Manual Gearbox Variant of The 928 Final Evolution with Low Original Miles – Driver Quality European Import.
Speedart Motorsports is pleased to offer this glorious final act of the 928 series with long term ownership and one of less than 150 examples imported into North America in driver quality condition.
Chassis No. 800516 was imported from France by its last custodian for fourteen years, always kept in a closed garage and maintained by a local Porsche specialist.
The car has been re-sprayed in its original color of Slate Grey Metallic still retaining the factory upholstery of Black leather and presented in good mechanical order, ready to be enjoyed or as a great candidate of a comprehensive restoration.
For explicit information and provenance details inquire within.
So $85,000 sounds like a lot until you start treading into the competition for this car; an equal E31 850CSi would set you back well over $100,000, and most other 928 GTSs aren’t better. Still, you can find a US-spec manual car for less in a more interesting color combination, so perhaps there’s room for negotiation here.
