Refusing to bow out quietly, the Porsche 928’s ultimate incarnation, the 928 GTS was introduced at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 1991.
Now with a thumping 5.4 litre V8 producing 345hp, a Porsche Sperrdifferential (PSD) limited-slip differential- similar in design to the unit found on the 959, “Big Black Brembos”, suspension borrowed from the S4 giving the car near perfect 50/50 weight distribution, and lastly, transaxle design legend, Harm Lagaay, introduced muscular rear wheel arches, wider alloys, a 911-esque rear reflector fill panel and a colour-coded ‘ironing board’ spoiler the GTS was Porsche’s supercar for the road.
On the surface, the car wasn’t a huge departure from the GT that came before it but the GTS was subtly uprated all-round.
In this form, the 928 GTS was produced until 1995. Just 192 cars were believed to be produced in right hand drive and Porsche has not made anything like it since so today, this “last of” and ultimate expression of Porsche’s Grand Touring capabilities is incredibly collectable.
The car offered is an Australian delivered 1992 Porsche 928 GTS sold new by Hamiltons Porsche, Melbourne and 1 of just 22 examples that arrived on our shores.
What would have to be one of the finest maintained 928 GTS’ we’ve seen, this stunning supercar was optioned in the ever changing colour of Amazon Blue Metallic over Black leather trim and features electric sliding sunroof, windows, mirrors and seats with memory settings, cruise control, climate controlled air-conditioning, power steering, digital dash and stereo display and the creamy 4 speed automatic transmission.
Inside and out this 928 GTS shows all the tell-tale signs of a meticulously maintained car from the perfectly preserved switch gear, to the sports seats still firm to the touch, even the original Blaupunkt stereo is still fitted and the paintwork has kept its deep glass-like finish with original equipment like the Bosch head lights, rear privacy screen and Carrera Cup alloys still present.
With great provenance, this rare car is also accompanied by an extensive history folio with the original owner’s manuals and log books detailing options and delivery information still bound within the leather Porsche wallet, receipts for almost every service since new and the original Porsche key.
A landmark car within the coveted history of one of the world’s foremost automakers and a glance into the future from the perspective of 1980’s auto engineers that held so much pop-up-headlight promise, the 928 GTS is a must experience supercar.
To suit the most discerning collector and/or the perfect addition to any garage, it’s time to own, drive and invest in what Porsche predicted would be the successor to the 911 and stretch its very, very long legs threading some winding weekend roads.
Australian delivered, and incredibly rare this internationally desirable supercar is ready to drive off the showroom floor.
