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 litres and featuring a single overhead camshaft design, it produced 219bhp for the North American market and 237bhp 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 litre, 345bhp 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 wonderful 928 GTS is described as being in excellent condition throughout, with a documented service history and a total mileage of ca. 77,000kms. Complete with an impressive list of extras including automatic transmission, differential lock control, air-conditioning, electric sunroof, heated seats and many more; this is an impressive example. With well-maintained 928’s becoming increasingly sought after, this more desirable GTS version offers an excellent opportunity for investment in the current market.
