1993 Porsche 928 GTS Coupe 5-Speed

Now available for auction is one of only 54 U.S. Porsche 928 GTS 5-speed's built for 1993. Representing the final evolutionary phase of Porsche’s iconic 928 grand tourer, this GTS model showcases revised bodywork, Cup wheels and a powerful 5.4 L V8 engine mated to a rare 5-speed manual transmission with limited slip differential.  Highlighting some noteworthy mainteannce items carried out in recent years including a timing belt and water pump replacement, this exceptional 1993 example is now being offered with a Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a vast collection of service records by its seller out of Playa Vista, California.

This 928 is finished in its Porsche COA specified color of Polar Silver Metallic.  The paint is noted to be in great condition with some road-going wear and the seller indicates that the driver’s side door was refinished at some point (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery).  A new OEM front windshield was installed in 2017 and the factory 17” Cup wheels were refinished in 2016 before being wrapped in Continental Extreme Contact tires.  Noteworthy details on the GTS model include wider rear fenders, aero mirrors, continuous rear light band and painted rear spoiler.

The Grey leather interior is said to be in excellent condition for its age with the driver’s seat outer bolster cushion professionally reupholstered in October of 2017.  An aftermarket radio has been installed, although the seller will also include the original Becker Porsche CR-1 unit with the sale.  Factory equipment listed on the COA includes a power sunroof, remote CD changer, deviated carpeting and climate control with optional rear seat vents (Increased Air Conditioning).  All gauges and accessories are said to be in good working order; however, the air conditioning does not blow cold at this time.

This 928 GTS debuted a redesigned 5.4L 32-valve DOHC V8 engine rated at 345 HP and 369 lb.-ft of torque.  The rear wheels are driven by way of a 5-speed manual transmission with standard equipped Porsche limited slip differential (PDS).  Included service records indicate that the timing belt and water pump were replaced in 2014 at just over 100k miles.  Other service items performed in recent years include clutch hydraulic refurbishment and block repair at the water pump, new rear wheel bearings, CV boots and fuel lines.  The suspension was also refreshed in 2016 with new Boge shocks, Delrin steering rack bushings, a rebuilt lower control arm and one new tie rod end.  Stated to be in exceptional driving condition and up to date on all required maintenance, this GTS is just waiting to be enjoyed.

The sale of this iconic luxury grand tourer will include one master key, original owner’s manuals, a clear title, Porsche Certificate of Authenticity and a comprehensive collection of service records dating back to 1997.  Remaining in outstanding overall condition, this handsome 1993 example is not to be missed.

    Good afternoon Richard. It's nice to e-meet you. I sent you a message yesterday (through the PCAR message center). I would love to make an offer, but I'm just waiting for you to respond to the message that I sent to you first. Before I make an offer and/or commit to purchase your car, I would love to hear back from you. Thanks! -Tom

    BeachBoy1: Richie, thanks for letting me know. Given that I will need to spend near $5,000.00 in transportation costs and in Pcarmarket fees, I cannot go any higher than the $50,000.00 I already committed to. I love the car and it will go to a very good home but 50K is my limit. I appreciate your quick responses. Best regards, Barry

  • BeachBoy1 (seller) 3 weeks, 3 daysago

    @BarryLe Barry-you would check with them-I believe it is 5% of the value of the purchase. I'm pretty sure this is what they quote when a buyer signs up to bid. R.

  • BarryLe (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 3 daysago

    BeachBoy1: Richie, pardon my ignorance but I have never purchased a car from an online auction before. If I purchase your 928, what will Pcarmarket’s fee be, just so I know? Thanks, Barry

  • BeachBoy1 (seller) 3 weeks, 3 daysago

    @BarryLe Hi Barry-per PCar buyer pays the fee-Cost to ship coast to coast is about $2,000 enclosed. R.

  • BarryLe (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 4 daysago

    BeachBoy1: Richard, I will consider your offer if we can make it contingent on a PPI. Can you find out how much it will cost to ship the car from you to Boca Raton, FL? Also, who pays PCarMarket?

  • BeachBoy1 (seller) 3 weeks, 4 daysago

    @BarryLe Hi Barry-I will split the difference and sell for $53,000.00. THX Richard.

  • BarryLe (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 4 daysago

    Allmack: Near as I can determine, I continue to be the high bidder here. I have offered $50,000.00 for the 928 GTS. Because I am unable to see the car in advance and because of its high mileage, it is certainly not unreasonable to request a PPI. I am not trying to spook any market. I have made a fair offer for the car and I would be very happy to hear from the seller. To date, I have not heard from him.

  • allmack (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 6 daysago

    @BarryLe Who benefits from a "successful PPI"? You or the seller? And if I may make a suggestion: if you paid for a PPI, don't waste time lobbying public opinion as a bank shot or to try and spook the market. It doesn't work. Negotiate with the seller.

  • BarryLe (registered bidder) 3 weeks, 6 daysago

    BeachBoy1: I am still anxious to send you $50,000.00 for your 928 GTS after a successful PPI. I think the market has spoken clearly on your car. The high mileage has impacted its market value. I would love to do business with you as I really like the car.

  • RobinS 1 monthago

    BeachBoy1: I am willing to pay $50,000.00 for your 928 GTS subject only to a PPI which can be done at the nearest Porsche dealership to where the car is located. I feel 56K is too high given the car’s high mileage. Please get back to me here if you are interested. Thanks.

    @JNasty I will sell my 1993 928 GTS 5 speed for $56,000

  • JNasty (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    @BarryLe - that may be factually true, but the MARKET of buyers tends to punish those w/ more than 3 years on TB/WP.

    BeachBoy1: I am very interested in your 928 GTS. Is it possible to speak with you directly by phone or via personal email without breaking any PCAR Market rules? I have read all of the commentary from the auction but I still have some questions about the car that I need answered. Also, I want to arrange a PPI as I am anxious to make you an offer. Please let me hear from you. Thanks.

    This is an amazing deal at $56K for a 5 speed in this condition! It’s only a matter of time until someone scoops it up. Best of luck seller!!

  • BeachBoy1 (seller) 1 monthago

    @BarryLe Hi Barry-I put my car back out there on 2 sites. You can look at them and get back to me if you like-THX Richard.

  • BarryLe (registered bidder) 1 monthago

    BeachBoy1: I was a bit surprised that your car did not make the reserve today. I remain genuinely interested. If I could get a PPI and an independent visual inspection of your 928 GTS, I would go to $50,000.00 if the reports came back favorable. Please let me know if you are interested. Best regards, BarryLe

    The latest information I have is from a Porsche Service memo in 2006 stating that the timing belt water pump replacement interval has been changed to 45,000 miles or 10 years, which ever comes first.

  • Maui928 1 month, 1 weekago

    The records say the timing belt was done in 2014 so it is due for replacement based on time; should be done every 5 years. Water pump typically only needs to be done every other timing belt so it should be inspected and may be reusable. Great looking car and GLWTA!

  • BeachBoy1 (seller) 1 month, 1 weekago

    @BarryLe Hi Barry-new timing belt was done at 110 miles so its supposed to be every 30,000 I think so I'm good for just about another 30,000 miles (you can see from my records). I think the A/C is a charge. On Another note-my car was originally purchased in New Mexico till 97' then in California last 23 years-always a dry weather state car. THX.

  • BarryLe (registered bidder) 1 month, 1 weekago

    BeachBoy1: When will your 928 require another major timing belt and water pump service? Do you think the A/C system just needs a charge or do you think the problem is more extensive?
