One-owner 1993 Porsche 928GTS with 8,600 miles

Anyone well familiar with the collector Porsche market undoubtedly knows that a lot of the demand that has been responsible for recent price increases comes from Germany. Over the past few years, many of the nicest concours condition examples of 928’s for sale in the U.S. have been purchased by German collectors. The rationale is that it is much harder to find an immaculate example in Europe, as fewer were sold there and therefore fewer collector quality cars with low mileage exist in that market.

Well, this is one of the few European 928 GTS’s that would certainly appear to qualify as a “concoursable” car. With approximately 8,600 miles, this GTS is one of the lowest mileage example’s I’ve seen for sale since I began following the 928 market eight years ago. In addition, I’d imagine that being a single owner German spec car will make this example particularly attractive to German collectors.

The only hindrances I see to the value are the automatic transmission and the Cup II wheels, which I have a hard time believing are original to the car (Cup II’s became available on U.S. GTS’s in the second quarter of 1994 production). To my knowledge, all 1993 GTS’s worldwide came from the factory with Cup I’s. Additionally, the color combination of Guards red/black (the most common color combination on the 928) and the rubstrips may deter a few potential buyers.

As with any older low-mileage car, I’d recommend interested buyers have a pre-purchase inspection done by a 928 expert to assure that all seals, gaskets, and other rubber components have either been replaced or are in good condition. I’d also inquire as to why the water pump was not changed with the timing belt, as they are typically done as a pair. The lack of pictures (none of the undercarriage, engine bay, wheel wells, spare tire area, etc.) makes it hard to valuate this example. However, with all the information I have from the ad I’d say that the asking price of around $90G’s is quite reasonable for a GTS with such low mileage.
