We feature the 928GTS with some regularity here at GCFSB. They’re phenomenal machines and good ones are highly desirable. Among those we’ve featured we do tend to have a pretty strong preference for those equipped with a manual transmission. Being the enthusiasts that we are, when given the choice of shifting the gears ourselves versus letting the transmission do it for us, we’re naturally going to gravitate toward the more engaging manual option. A manual GTS also is more rare. Of course, as the more rare and enthusiast-oriented versions tend to be, a manual GTS is very expensive. Far more expensive than an automatic GTS.
Of all the Porsches we regularly feature the 928 is perhaps the only one that remains fairly desirable with an automatic. As a grand tourer the automatic doesn’t necessarily detract from the experience as much as it would in a 911 or Cayman. Some owners even prefer it. So why not have a look at one such beast? Here we have a Grand Prix White 1994 Porsche 928GTS, located in San Diego, with Black leather interior and 68,200 miles on it. And here it sits with a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The first thing you might notice is that the asking price here is a good $40K or $50K lower than a comparable manual GTS. In this case, that’s a feature. It isn’t a low price for an automatic GTS either so there might even be some better value to be had with some negotiating. Nonetheless we’re far from manual pricing.
In Grand Prix White the GTS is a really good-looking car. It’s design shows the color very well and this one looks in nice condition. We don’t get any close up shots (and few in good lighting) to really assess the quality of the paint, but in a couple of the pictures it does show a lot of promise and good brightness. White paint can look quite dull and I don’t think that’s the case here. The interior presents quite well and shows very little wear, even to the areas where we might expect it. One thing to note: the odometer is showing kilometers rather than miles so I’d be curious where this GTS began its life. In concert with that, like any 928 you’ll want a good look at its history to make sure maintenance has been kept up with and performed on time. The ad states it comes with all records. If I wanted to be cynical I might read that as stating that all available records are included and not that it comes with a full service history. It’s worth asking about, but hopefully it means you’ll be able to find out whatever you’d like to know.
Given their cost and potential for very expensive service all 928s have to be approached with some caution, but the condition of this one at least shows promise and suggests there shouldn’t be major issues lurking. It’s been a while since I checked on the market for an automatic GTS, but $70K doesn’t seem too out of line if everything checks out with its history and condition.
