1993 Porsche 928GTS

$_4 (1)

I decided to do something a little different this morning and take a look at this 1993 Porsche 928GTS. This is not the ordinary, low mileage gem that we tend to feature, but a GTS that wears some battle scars and has covered an impressive 140,000 miles. It’s no secret these cars are well engineered and can go the distance, but with values on the rise for these grand touring machines, collectors are coveting them to a point these will start approaching air-cooled 911 Turbo money. Are you brave enough to take on a high mileage shark that needs a little TLC? Read further…

When I saw this 928GTS, I knew its appearance would irk Captain Clean, aka Andy from flüssig magazine. So I decided to bother him and get his input. Overall, he thought the price was rather fair, especially when you consider what low mileage minters are bringing these days. This is also a rubstrip delete car, which is quite desirable. He noticed a few things that I did, notably the curbed wheels, a front bumper piece that could use a refurbish and a PSD light that is on in the dash pod. Given this is an Arizona car, Andy suspected there may be leather shrinkage in some spots, something to certainly look out for. He also noted the engine intake looks like it benefitted from a refresh at some point. With a long service log noted above and only two owners, this is a 928 that deserves a good home for someone that could afford to maintain it and maybe make it even a little better. I would certainly have a lot of fun tackling the various projects on this car to bring it back to its glory.

  1. You’re kidding me with that price, right? Not going to happen. Sheesh the seller couldn’t even spend a little time and elbow grease to clean the wheels for the pictures?

  2. As the owner of a 1993 GTS 5 speed with just over 100K on the clock I hope he fetches this price, it’s aggressive but not crazy. The car certainly could be better displayed in the pictures, but little touches like the Beru ignition wires and new GTS intake tubes, both a huge price premium over non original alternatives, makes me think perhaps this car has been looked after on the mechanical end. The only dash warning light I see is the tire pressure warning light not PSD light which says PSD, I may be mistaken but look at page 36 here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzC7nSxhlstxYThmN2FiZGItYWZkMy00NTgyLWI2YjgtN2RlMThmZGI3MzE1/edit?ddrp=1&hl=en#.

  3. Interior shade of gray is so ugly — so ugly. Looks like a corpse.

  4. Howard the price is in line with recent FR water cooled Porsche sales. It is what it is. The GTS is the best of a beautiful breed. You want in, you best buy now.

  5. Price is on the higher side for the condition, but a GTS will always pull top dollar followed by the S4. These cars are undervalued in my opinion. They were state of the art for their time, but certainly have the maintenance and repair costs to go along with all that state of the art German engineering. I think its the right time to buy these cars.
