45k-Mile 1993 Porsche 928 GTS

Now available for auction is this 1993 Porsche 928 GTS finished in Polar Silver Metallic over a dark blue leather interior. Representing the final evolutionary phase of Porsche’s iconic 928 grand tourer, this GTS model showcases revised bodywork, Cup Design wheels, and a powerful 5.4 L V8 engine mated to a 4-speed automatic transaxle with limited-slip differential. One of less than 200 Porsche 928 GTS models designated for the North American market in 1993, this example has been with the seller since 2014 and highlights some noteworthy maintenance items carried out in recent years including a timing belt and water pump replacement. This rare and highly collectible 1993 example is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Illinois while showing under 45k miles on the odometer.

This 928 is finished in Polar Silver Metallic finish and features GTS-specific styling including widened rear fenders, aero mirrors, a continuous rear light band, and body-colored rear wing. The seller notes that the rear bumper and decklid were previously damaged subsequently repaired at a cost of over $7k using genuine Porsche parts including a model badge, spoiler, and taillight assmebly, additional photos are provided in the gallery along with repair invoices and a clean CARFAX report. This 928 rides on factory 17” Cup Design wheels which come dressed in Michelin Primacy tires.

Inside, the cabin is appointed with dark blue upholstery and leather-trimmed power-adjustable front sets.  Additional factory equipment includes a power sunroof, cruise control, and climate control with optional rear-seat vents.  A CD changer has been fitted behind the front seats by a previous owner and an aftermarket radio has been installed. The seller notes slight wear to the driver’s seat bolster and adds that the power window operation and rear deck opener are currently nonfunctional.

The 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 4-speed automatic transaxle with a Porsche limited-slip differential. Service records show a timing belt and water pump replacement to have been carried out in 2017 as well as valve cover and oil pan gasket replacements in 2015. More recent service is said to include a new battery in October 2020 and a new PSD unit in April of 2021.

This sale will include a clean title and service records. One of the rarest and most sought-after transaxle Porsche’s of all time, this U.S. market 928 GTS is a true collector’s item.

    @ODIN_ZL1 I see what you refer to. The car is back in storage, when I take it out in July to have the window control fixed, I will have it looked at and respond.

    While looking at the picture of the engine, there appears to be a crack on the top left side of the Intake Manifold. I noticed it when I enlarged the photo. Is it cracked?

    Beautiful car, but the non-operational windows and hatch are a real turn-off.
    It’s always hard to know if as a seller you’ll get your money back by fixing the car ahead of time, but in the current nearly-overheated car market I’d bet you’ll see your repair investment doubled or tripled, and best of all a quicker sale.

    @ngamountains Your right, the next video was with my girlfriend's Iphone and when it was sent to my android phone it was all out of focus so I didn't include it. Sorry, I should have used a professional photographer.

    Best of luck today seller! This car is a beauty. Hopefully it finds a new home today so it can be driven on a regular basis like it should be.

    Thanks Maui928 for the input!

    The power window switches fail often in these cars from my experience. The usual fix for me has just been disassembling the switches, cleaning all the contact points with a small file or wire brush, spray with contact cleaner, use dielectric grease where needed and reassemble. You have to be careful not to lose pieces when you take them apart and take pictures so you know how to reassemble. It’s a free little diy project that has been successful for me several times. It’s not for everyone as many people just buy new switches. The problem could also be something else; I’m just speaking from limited experience and rennlist forums that I’ve read. I would agree that it wouldn’t be expensive any which way and wouldn’t deter me from buying the car. God luck!

    @REHcarcollector-7 If I get the bid this car deserves, I will agree to have the electric window fixed. I didn't fix it because I don't use it but to go to porsche and similar gatherings. In my collection I keep up mechanical needs like timing belts, etc. It's a personal choice I make to keep the size of the collection I have. The more important issue to me is I am honest about what I sell.

  • Adoptagreatpet (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Are you willing to fix the power windows if the high bidder pays for it. Not being able to operate the windows is a big deal and makes me uneasy. If you said it was inexpensive, might I ask why you didn’t fix it? Thank you

    Car is available by appointment. It is stored in Iron Gate car condos in Naperville.

  • dozer (registered bidder) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Is the vehicle available to see in person?

  • REHcarcollector-7 (seller) 1 month, 2 weeksago

    @2012audittrs I have had three 928s. The rear deck lid release always goes out so I have always used a key. I didn't know the window controls were out because I always use the air conditioner. When I discovered it I chose to list it without fixing. I had the problem with a prior 928 and I don't remember it being that expensive.

  • 2012audittrs 1 month, 2 weeksago

    Why have you not had the power window operation and rear deck lid problem repaired before putting it up for auction? Is that an expensive repair?
