If you’re interested in how the 928 market has changed over the last few years this example might offer some useful insight. But let’s get to that later.
This is a Horizon Blue Metallic 1993 Porsche 928 GTS, located in Florida, with Blue Topaz leather interior, the automatic transmission, and 56,995 miles on it. This is a very attractive shade of light blue that shows well on the 928 and certainly stands apart from the many silver and black examples we’ve seen. The interior makes the car a little monochrome overall, but it’s a bright blue that stands out even more than the exterior. I’m not sure I’d consider this the ideal color combination, but it certainly is an interesting one. In a sea of uninteresting cars, this 928 definitely will attract notice. It also looks to be in really nice shape. And, of course, it’s a GTS!
I said previously that I’d try to pay a little more attention to the Porsche 928 so that’s what I’m trying to do. In truth I’ve featured this 928 before so technically this is a revisit. However, I wanted to shine a brighter light on it than the standard “hey look this one’s back up for sale.” It’s been nearly a year since I featured it and that’s usually long enough to revisit something in depth, but mostly this comes down to price and my own love for the color.
This is a Slate Grey Metallic 1994 Porsche 928 GTS, located in Texas, with Grey interior, 82,500 miles on it, and the 5-speed manual transmission. I know grey is supposed to be a boring color and I don’t think I’d call Slate Grey exciting, but I do love it as an exterior color. It just looks really good. There’s not much more to it than that. Regarding the price change: when I first featured this 928 it was priced at just under $130K. Manual or not that’s a lot of money, especially for a 928 with almost 90K miles on it. The price now has been slashed substantially to a much more reasonable $82,500. I think we can work with that.
Gosh it feels like forever since I featured a 928. I think I actually started off my last 928 post in the same way. Perhaps I should feature them more often. I really do like these cars. The look is beautiful and timeless and it’s hard to believe it’s been almost 25 years since the last one was produced. Even more hard to believe is how good the original design – with almost 40 years on it! – still looks today. But this isn’t about an early 928, but rather one from near the end of their production.
Porsche’s top-of-the-line front-engine GT was with us for 17 years and over that time followed the typical Porsche path of subtle evolutionary changes to its design and mechanical layout. Always a V8, displacement would gradually be increased from 4.5 liters to 5.4 liters with associated increases in power as well. In its final GTS form that meant 350 hp with either a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. The automatic was popular and for some actually more desirable, but the manual-equipped cars command the most money. The last one I featured was pretty low mileage and came with a very high price tag; relatively speaking this one is neither of those things.
Here we have a Black 1993 Porsche 928 GTS, located in Georgia, with Cashmere interior, the 5-speed manual transmission, and 69,673 miles on it.
It feels like it has been forever since I featured a 928 of any year, let alone a GTS, the last of these great Porsche grand tourers. As I come back to one now I am immediately struck by how good these cars still look. They are truly a timeless design that was well ahead of the game when they debuted. The interior pretty clearly dates these cars to the ’90s, but from the outside only the pop-up headlights really hint at the 928’s age. That design, along with quite a few other superb qualities, haven’t gone unnoticed as the GTS has become pretty highly sought after among Porsche enthusiasts, especially in the rare case of finding one with a manual transmission. This one happens to be an automatic, but there’s still plenty to love here and that automatic should come at a substantial discount over a comparable manual-equipped GTS. Here we have a Polar Silver Metallic 1993 Porsche 928 GTS, located in New Jersey, with Black interior and 34,595 miles on it on offer with no reserve.
It has been nearly 40 years since Porsche first brought the 928 into the world and almost 20 years since the last one rolled off the line. It began life with a 4.5 liter V8 producing 219 hp and saw gradual increases in displacement and power before finally reaching the 5.4 liter 345 hp producing V8 of the 928 GTS. Cosmetically, the 928 saw a similar level of gradual evolution retaining the same basic design and appearance, but in a more refined package. From inception to final production these were what a proper GT should be: a car combining luxury and comfort with performance that was effortless yet unstrained. The example we have featured here is a paint-to-sample Silver 1993 Porsche 928 GTS Coupe with 5-speed manual transmission, located in California. This particular 928 also holds a place in Porsche media history, which should provide its owner with a nice bit of trivia.
