When Porsche launched the 928 GTS in 1992, they knew it would be the last evolution of 928. Porsche did much to enhance performance and refinement, knowing that its luxury flagship would leave memories with Porsche enthusiasts. For the GTS, Porsche increased the engine capacity to 5397cc and added a catalytic convertor, with eight balance weights instead of six to enhance smoothness. This DOHC engine produced 350bhp and enabled a top speed of more than 170 mph. The GTS engine was smoother and more flexible than its predecessor; it was quieter, smoother and easier to drive. Changes to the chassis included a wider rear track and larger brakes. Externally, the GTS differed from S4 with its new style of alloy wheels, flared rear arches and a body-coloured rear spoiler. What Porsche wasn't advertising when the 928 was released was the price; it was among the most expensive cars on the road at the time. This severely hampered sales despite the model's high competency and long standard equipment list. Porsche discontinued the GTS model that year after shipping only 2,904 in total which in 1994 was a problem, but means that in 2018 this is a rare and incredibly desirable Porsche.
This GTS A was first registered in July 1994 and this was the first year dynamic kick down for automatic transmission models was introduced. Presented in deep metallic green with contrasting grey leather and black piping, this collectable example is offered with a comprehensive history file which includes 18 service stamps in the maintenance booklet and a cambelt change at 77,302 miles.
Since 2016 this example has been in dry storage and was recently recommissioned by Renaissance Sports Cars in Ripley. Prior to this our vendor spent a significant sum of money ironing out any of the necessary works, as such this is a desirable car accompanied by a good history file with necessary invoices for buyer confidence. These rare and collectable front engine V8 Porsches are fabulous motor cars and this car should command serious attention given its sensible estimate.
