Description

The Porsche 928 is a luxury GT car produced by Porsche AG of Germany from 1978 to 1995. Originally intended to replace the company’s well-known and famed 911, the 928 combined the power, poise, and handling of a sports car with the refinement, comfort, and equipment of a luxury sedan to create what some Porsche executives thought would be a vehicle with wider appeal than the compact, quirky and sometimes difficult 911.  The 928 featured a large, front-mounted and water-cooled V8 engine driving the rear wheels. Originally displacing 4.5 L and featuring a single overhead camshaft design, it produced 219 hp  for the North American market and 237 hp (176 kW/240 PS) in other markets. The 928 GTS came for sale in late 1991 as a 1992 model in Europe and in spring of 1992 as an early 1993 model in North America. Changed bodywork, larger front brakes and a new, more powerful 5.4 L, 350 PS  engine were the big advertised changes; what Porsche wasn’t advertising was the price. Loaded GTS models could eclipse US$100,000 in 1995, making them among the most expensive cars on the road at the time.   

 

This immaculate Porsche 928 GTS is one of the extremely rare examples

with the 5 – speed manual gearbox, of which only 667 were produced.

Having been meticulously looked after by only 2 collector owners in all its life,

the car shows a fully stamped service booklet from mileage 15802 kms to the

warranted mileage of now 76,500 kms. The cars first owner, an Italian pharmacist, purchased this superb 928 GTS with 9000 kms directly from Porsche Centre Napoli and since 1996 all invoices from the first owner are available in the cars file. Since his purchase in 2012

the now vendor and second owner invested a further circa  20,000  in the car, namely a first class respray in 2012/2013 in its original blue metallic at circa 10.000.  Invoices are available on file  as well. The 928 GTS comes with power steering, electric sunroof, radio / cassette ( Blaupunkt Symphony ), central locking, electric mirrors, heat protecting windows, 5 – speed gearbox, electric side screens, sport seats in leather, airbags, alarm system,

catalyst converter, cruise control and much more.  The car comes with a TUV to 2017.
