Just when I thought I’ve seen every conceivable color combination on a 1990s era 928, along comes this car. Behold this Wimbeldon Green Metallic 928GTS with a midnight green leather interior. Equipped with a 5-speed gearbox, this one was ordered new from Holbert’s Porsche, not far from my neck of the woods outside of Philadelphia. If you aren’t familiar with this dealership, this was the one owned by the father of Al Holbert, five time champion of the IMSA Camel GT series. This 928GTS was owned by a Porsche Club of America member and it’s not a vehicle appropriate for shrinking violets.

What else would you call the only color to sample, special ordered “Wimbledon Green Metallic” and very rare ’93 928GTS 5-speed every made, with color to sample midnight green supple leather with red piping! Wow! Absolutely breathtaking in person. One of only 47 5-speeds made in 1993 as well which makes it one of the rarest Porsches ever made!

VIN #WP0AA2929PS820156

With only 50k PCA member miles! This is the legendary grand tourer of the road! Also the world’s fastest luxury and ultra high performance car of its day! Equipped with a 5.4 liter 8 cylinder 345 hp DOHC with 4 valves per cylinder, 5-speed manual transmission, force sensitive power steering, power vented disc brakes, variable LSD differential, 17″ lightweight factory Cup wheels, power sunroof, automatic speed control, AM/FM radio with CD including hi-fi sound, 10 speaker system!

Also included is rim caps with Porsche crests, leather welting, leather piping, heated seats left and right, sport shocks, lumbar support left and right, increased air conditioning and supple glove leather! Wow, what a car! Special ordered at Holbert Porsche in Warrington, PA on October 1992 and delivered to the very first owner in July of ’93! This is a true “GT” cruiser that has great torque which makes driving effortless, unreal handling and the great looks are timeless!

Actually, they are way more sought after and popular today than when they were born! It’s not just a car, it’s a lifestyle of such with a following like never before! At barely 50 inches off the ground, the excitement of sampling a legend collides with the reality of stepping on the gas. You realize why the 10 pounds per horsepower figure is so magical! Off-idle torque is magnificent and reaches all the way to the 6700 RPM redline!

The exhaust roared and the clatter of the 32 valves makes this machine a “must” have for the man cave! This is the redefinition of the sports car created by the legendary Porsche family! It is also a reality! A high performance car that is also quiet inside, corners superbly, rides well and built for long life! Brutally quick, exquisitely refined, rewardingly agile, plus the highly sophisticated 928GTS is the “lear jet” of the highway!

There are very few of the original 47 5-speeds left on the streets, so now is the time to buy and wait, not to wait and buy! So much car for the money! This car was really ahead of its time. Buy now!

I’m usually one for unique color combinations but I think the green interior is just a bit too 1990s for my tastes. You have to hand it to Porsche, though, for continuing to offer a wide spectrum of exterior and interior colors to cater to all kinds of folks. Each time another clean, low mileage 928GTS comes up for sale it seems the prices creep up just a bit, but ever so steady. This one is price at the top of the range for a Condition #1 vehicle according to Hagerty. The color combination may hold this one back a bit, but then again, there might be one 928 enthusiast out there as we speak looking for this exact car.

    Love this green and love the model but there is too much sheet metal here for this color. There was a Wimbledon smaller Porsche on here a bit ago that looked super.

    Very nice car, very annoying add.

    @Z – agreed, it has about 65 surplus exclamation points(!)

    I know nothing about Porsche color names, but shouldn’t “Wimbledon” be a more earthy green and less teal? And at midnight all I see is black, no greens. 😉

    Cool car though, grating ad.

    Looks very similar to the VW color from the same era
