1990 Porsche 928GT

3

There exists a wide range of “degrees of provenance” that collectible cars carry with them. On one end of the scale there are barn finds with virtually no recorded documentation, and at the other end there are the low mileage weekend drivers fastidiously maintained by a single owner over a long period of time. In regards to cars like the Porsche 928, the former is more common than the latter. Perhaps the most special are the latter when owned by a well-known enthusiast. This 1990 Porsche 928 GT is one of those rare and special cars. Originally owned by Rob Burrell, a well-respected member of the 928UK community, this 928 remained in the hands of its original purchaser for 24 years. In a letter to the 928UK community, Burrell stated that this 928 was the best car he has ever owned, without question (further mentioning that it had stiff competition from several other Porsches, a Ferrari, and a Lamborghini).

Burrell sold the car to an enthusiast who held onto it until late 2015, when he put it on consignment at Dick Lovett Ferrari. I am uncertain whether or not the car ever sold, but it is now advertised again by the same dealership for the same price. That price is substantial, too… £74,990, roughly equivalent to $98,570. I don’t follow the UK market for 928’s very closely, so I will withhold judgment on whether or not this is a reasonable figure.

1991 Porsche 928GT

It’s been a while since my last GCFSB article, but I figure that this beautiful 1991 Porsche 928 GT is worthy of a writeup, so here goes. As we all know, mint Porsche 928’s, especially GTS’s, have been in demand for a while now. In fact, pristine 928 GTS’s were fetching 6 figures a few years before mediocre 993 TT’s rose beyond that proverbial barrier. Though slightly less desirable than the later GTS’s, 928 GT’s have fetched respectable figures at auctions. I can recall two selling for greater than $50K at Mecum auctions. The car featured here is listed at the top of the 928 GT market, and it will be interesting to see if it goes quickly at the asking price.

Porsche 928 Roundup

Last month, I had the pleasure of stopping by the 19th annual 928 Frenzy in Sterling, Virginia. In all the years of being a car enthusiast, rarely have I come across a more tight knit and dedicated group of enthusiasts devoted towards one model of vehicle. I’ve learned a lot about these V8 GT cars through fellow enthusiasts over at flüssig magazine and from Jim Doerr at 928 Classics. If you are a fan or owner of the 928 and haven’t checked out either of these sites, you would be well advised to do so. These are people who are helping keep the dream alive when it comes to Porsche’s beloved V8 coupe.

The 928 is a special car and really stands apart from both its contemporaries and modern sports cars of today. While some of the 911 set deride it, the 928 was the first clean sheet design from Porsche. So good was this design, it would last almost 20 years, still looking strikingly current at the end of its production run in 928GTS form. Taking a cue from Carter’s 924 Roundup earlier in the week, let’s take a moment to pay homage to this great GT car and take a look at the different variants throughout the years, staring off with this 1978 928 for sale in Italy.

Shark Showdown: Porsche 928S4 vs. 928GT

Before the ultimate iteration of Porsche’s V8 GT car appeared for the 1993 model year, the 928 lineup went through some twists and turns to separate the car into two categories for those wanting a bit more sport and those wanting a bit more comfort. The manual gearbox option was thus dropped on the 928S4 for the 1990 model year, making it the clear choice for those looking for a high speed cruiser. If you wanted to be a bit more involved and row your own, you would have to choose the 928GT, a model which debuted in 1989. The GT would also offer stiffer suspension and a RDK tire pressure monitoring system.

First we’ll take a look at this 1989 928S4 for sale in British Columbia with 75k miles on the clock. This one is a rare non-sunroof model in need of a little fettling.

Motorsports Monday: 1989 Porsche 928GT

Motorsports Monday often revolves around Porsches, as we saw with the 1984 911 Carrera that Carter posted earlier today. However, it’s rather rare you see a 928 of any sort prepped for competition use. More of a grand touring machine, these wouldn’t be on the radar of most track day enthusiasts. However, this 1989 928GT 5-speed for sale in Vancouver, British Columbia, has been prepared just so, with an FIA log book to go along with it. Care to take the road (or track) less traveled? This P-car is for you.
