It’s pretty amazing to consider that the Porsche 928 was intended to replace the 911 considering the lengths to which Porsche went to keep the 911 alive during the former’s production. The 928 was rolled out alongside the revised 911SC in 1978 and remained in production as the 911 became the Carrera, then the 964, and finally, the 993. Of course, the 928 wasn’t without changes – the S, S4, GT, and finally what we see here – the GTS – kept the model fresh and one of the most potent on the market. The styling was tweaked along the way, but the vision remained – a big V8 in front, a transaxle out back, and space-age looks in between.
Today’s car is a European version of the GTS, replete with a 5-speed manual gearbox. While it’s not the most exotic color combination in Slate Grey over black leather, the allure of the ultimate 928 is pretty strong – as is the asking price.
